Área: CenterWe are a Dutch family of 5 persons. (the children are 15, 8 and 6 years old) Since december 2011 we're living in France. We have a dairy farm with about 100 milking cows and even so much youngsters. The farm is growing, so half october we started in our new cow stable. Now we have to change the old stable in a youngster stable. And a lot of fenches needs to be repaired or even changed before we can let the cow out this spring. That gives much work beside the usual work, so we can use helpfull hands. Because of the children we have a little preferance for french speaking people. But everyone can contact us! Our livestyle and farm is regular, not ecologic. But it doesn't mean that we are not open to good suggestions!

Área: Venta Valero / Alminidilla, Cordoba, AndaluciaSorry, no availability anymore for 2014 We are a Ricardo and Anton, a Dutch couple living together with our very friendly dog Yuran, wich is a Maltezer Bichon. Our official home base is Rotterdam the Netherlands. Ricardo (49) among others, travelled 10 years around the world mainly as a tour guide, but also lived in Bali en Thailand and had art gallery in Mallorca Spain. Now a day’s he’s a manager developing new services at an organisation for elderly care in Rotterdam. Anton (54) had various management jobs in catering & tourism, business services and Human Resource at the Dutch local government of Rotterdam. We both have a broad cultural and social interest. For a long time we dreamed of buying a landhouse in Spain. We found a landhouse exactly on the crossroad of three Spanish provinces ( Granada/Jaen/Cordoba) in a rolling green and lush environment. A place with Spanish beauty we like to share with friends and travellers. The house is in good condition, with all amenities, but dated and and (still) basic. The land wich has to become a garden (1500m2), contains almond, fig and olive trees, is situated on a gently sloping hill and is unimproved. Basically we like this land to become a garden and the main attraction of the spot help is here needed but experience in contructionwork in the house is also most welcome such as brickwork/ plastering/ painting /carpentry etc.
Área: Ipswich town centre, Suffolk, East Anglia, EnglandPLEASE DO NOT APPLY UNLESS YOU HAVE READ MY FULL PROFILE and please be aware that I can only host ONE/UNO person/persona at a time for, ideally, a period of no more than TWO/DUE/DOS WEEKS/settimane/semana. I am currently looking for a volunteer for mid November or the beginning of December. About me: I am a state pensioner, i.e. retired, who used to work in further education where I taught ESOL (English as a second or other language), mainly to refugees and asylum seekers. I also supported students with additional needs, e.g. dyslexia and autism, both in further and higher education and within a creative arts and media faculty. I can provide resources should you want to improve your English. However, I do not want to spend my time teaching - whereas I am perfectly happy to help you with your English and engage in conversation about English culture I must stress that I am not able to offer a language course. I mention this only because a few people have indicated that this is what they want. I have also worked in advice and guidance and I am always willing to research information, particularly with regard to travel and where to go in the UK. As I have stated, for financial reasons (I live on a state pension and so have to be very frugal), I can only host volunteers for a maximum of two weeks at a time. I do not smoke and I am a strict vegetarian (and I do not allow meat or fish in the house – PLEASE respect this), a socialist, environmentalist and a republican. My main interests include: art and art history, cultural history and music. I have a long-haired cat who needs to stay in the house as he is old and almost blind. What I do depends very much on the weather and my limited energy. If it's sunny I like to get up at around 6.30 and then relax in the afternoon. If it rains I like to read, crochet or listen to the radio while surfing the Internet. I also like cafe culture so please bear this in mind if we go out anywhere - I enjoy good coffee, preferably Italian. And as much as I like good conversation I also like to be quiet, especially after a long day working on the house or in the garden.
