Area: RoquetailladeI'm an artist/sculptor/photographer who's been living in France for seven years. I should also mention the second member of the house is tigger, the cat. I'm busy both with my creative work, and with renovating two buildings which function as both home and workshop/studios. I have many creative friends and colleagues both in the area and further afield, and my aim is to be able to host other artists for periods of time, and to give them the space and opportunity to pursue their own work, as well as creating a rich and inspiring environment for collaborations and dialogue. In return I ask for some hours daily to help with creative and building projects. Life here is a balance between being very social, and also focused solitary time. I welcome anyone who embraces life, who is interested to learn new skills from working with me, and who can offer their help (and skills) in return for bed and food. I'm not exclusively looking for artists to help me at present - but anyone who thinks they might enjoy the exchange. However, people interested in the creative arts may particularly appreciate the environment.
Area: MunsterMy name is Luna, I live in Ireland in a small village with a beautiful woods where I love to go walking. I'm originally from Peru and moved to Ireland five years ago with my Irish husband. I have to lovely daughters, one is 5 years old and the other is 4 years old. I got separated 2 years ago so I'm on my own with my little girls. My youngest child has a small disability and needs a lot of attention. I would love to offer my house with a lovely room, to somebody willing to help for a few hours with my children. Cork is about 40 minutes away and Youghal only 10 minutes. Youghal is a beautiful seaside town.

Area: WalesDUE TO CANCELLATION, WE NOW HAVE A SLOT AVAILABLE FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, SEPT 1-31, 2014. We run a small goat dairy on our family smallholding overlooking the sea near Llangrannog in SW Wales, where we milk the goats and make our award-winning probiotic drink, soap and skin cream. We are looking for a cheerful, energetic English-speaking helper. Our life centers around the animals, making sure that they are happy, clean, milked and well-fed.

Area: UmbriaWe are Torben and Klaartje Heerze, a Dutch couple living in Umbria, Italy with our two little girls Giulia (7 years) and Elena (4 years old). We have set up our own business 7 years ago, and have been renting out Casa San Carlo (a big villa consisting of holiday apartments) to Dutch, English, German, and Belgian tourists ever since. We're still very happy with our radical change in life (Torben used to work as an internet consultant, Klaartje was a publisher in Holland) and raising our two girls bilingually. In winter and spring, we also export freshly harvested olive oil and Umbrian wines to the Netherlands, to keep us busy before and after the summer season. So there's always something to do or prepare for!
