Area: Coffs Harbour, Mid-North Coast, New South WalesWe live on a unique property of 22 acres within easy reach of the untouched beaches of the mid-north coast. Situated 30km north of Coffs Harbour, and only 2.5hrs drive north to Byron Bay, or south to Port Macquarie, we are halfway between Sydney and Brisbane. We are happy for travellers to stay with us for a working visit. Enjoy the wildlife that shares our farm while living with local people, gaining practical experiences. We have loads of resident kangaroos, bandicoots, birds, eels, turtles etc, and there is access from the back of our property to 500 acres of privately owned land that adjoins National Park. Helpers find us to be in the perfect location for a great break on their way to or from Surfers Paradise, Airlie Beach, Noosa, and Cairns. If you're after a party lifestyle, this is not the place for you. We're looking for people who put their money and their efforts into seeing new things and trying different experiences. We are a family of four that practices sustainable land management through conservation, reforestation, and habitat restoration to make our property a sanctuary for native wildlife. We do not have domestic or stock animals of any kind for that reason. We shoot feral animals when necessary. Please don't apply if this bothers you. We are eligible to sign your 2nd year working holiday visas.

Area: AquitaineThanks to all of the fantastic help from workawayers we officially opened as a bed and breakfast this summer and we have been a lot more popular than we imagined we'd be! We are still looking for some help from now (october) till november so please get in touch, but make sure you read our full profile and check out the photos to get a flavour of what life is like with us.. We're a really friendly, laid back Scottish family who have lived in france since 2001. This is our first year with Workaway and its been an absolutely fantastic experience so far. We've had helpers every week since the start of March and we are just blown away by their enthusiasm and the energy new people bring to our project. We own a small hotel, currently under renovation (by us) and there's a lot of work to be done. You need to be fit and strong and prepared to work hard and be flexible depending on what we need help with that day, could be anything from sanding banisters to washing up, painting, gardening or helping take stuff to the dump or helping me eat chocolate cake..sometimes we expect a lot of you! Riberac is a small but vibrant (from May to september) market town approx 1 and a half hours from Bordeaux. There are bars and restaurants and cafes, a small library and many small shops in town and 5 larger supermarkets on the outskirts. On fridays Riberac has the largest market in the Dordogne and the whole place is buzzing then with street music and artisans selling their produce, everything from ceramics to hand made cheeses. Riberac is a really quiet town, extremely safe and very chilled, but theres always somethig happening locally, from gigs and art previews to markets and open air cinema events. There is a lovely open air swimmingpool a 5 min walk from the house which is open 6 days a week. From the end of Sptember, Riberac is really quiet, but there are still open mic nights, bars and cafes open and the weather is usually better than the uk and much of the rest of Europe. A taxi/bus service wich can take you from Riberac to Angouleme or Perigueux for 2 euros each way, I'm not joking! Bergerac airport is 50 minutes drive and the capital city of the region is 30 mins by car or bus and is a stunning small city with a medieval quarter and lots to see and do. Bordeaux is fantastic and has loads of night life, shops and everything a culture vulture could ask for. We have lots of sun in summer and a few spectacular thunder storms in august! We are surrounded by beautiful countryside with a large swimming lake nearby which is really popular with locals. Sounds lovely...it is! We are very sociable and I cook for a living so the food is great (so I'm told) We sadly can't cater for vegetarians as we just dont have time to make seperate meals at this point and we do not eat solely organic food, but I do cook everything from scratch and we eat well every day. We have 4 kids, all young adults and some or all of them live here depending on time of year and circumstances. we have a large extremely friendly dog called Hamish. We do not smoke but don't mind if you smoke in the garden. We have a good mix of french and non friend friends and live in a quiet street in the center of town, so practising your french will be easy. Music is our passion and the area has some good festivals and music nights/open mic nights. This is a really sociable place and there are some amazing people here, lots of artists and musicians. There are a lot of expatriate people in this area, especially in the summer but we are not keen on the whole expat thing and try to avoid it as much as possible. We love having friends over for dinner but not every night, it's a sociable household but not over the top, we think we are quite nice. We are looking for easy going people who don't mind hard work, we are relaxed about the times you work and we will work with you where possible. We love meeting people of all nationalities and try our very best to make you feel at home right from the start. We hope to have 3 rooms ready this summer to do bed and breakfast, we have achieved a lot in the last few months with our great workaway helpers so if you want to be part of this great project get in touch, We look forward to hearing from you. We need your help! We still have the verandah to complete, works been hampered by the weather till now but we've really achieved a huge amount this year and we could never have managed without all the help from our workaway teams. We really appreciate this so much and try our best to show our appreciation with good food and bad jokes. We had a few spectacular storms this summer and a few indoor water features, but we smiled though it. We've been to a few parties and outdoor events, swum in lakes and visisted the felibree in Verteillac, albeit briefy and a bit later than everyone else and we've tried our hand at throwing some pots. (I say "we" but infact I didn't go, we leave the fun days to for the workers.)Everyone has brought so much energy and laughter to the project. we thank them all x
