Region: ScotlandOn the remote west side of Shetland you can find spectacular scenery, peace and the ideal refuge for the escapist. We have a small guesthouse, sleeps up to 14 guests. I run the house by myself with some help. I am happy to answer all your questions you will have.
Region: County Down, Northern IrelandWe live in Northern Ireland, County Down, which is about 2 1/2 hours from Dublin airport and 1 hour from Belfast, by bus. County Down is famous for Saint Patrick and the Mourne mountains and sea. We can offer you a place if you are interested in the offer. We are 2 sisters and 1 brother, sometimes, with 5 children aged 6 to 13. We are all Vegans and we can give you the chance to learn about this diet. We try to grow our own fruit and vegetables in bags and hopefully this year will be a good one. We also volunteer with our local Environmental group and have some great days out with them. You can also come on these days, if room in the car!
Region: Manawatu-WanganuiWe are a family of three with a two year old son and have a large extended family in the local community so if you would like a taste of New Zealand family life we would love to have you. We live on a farm growing predominately wheat and maize but we also have some grazing livestock, chickens and a poodle. I run a small shop and design business and have way more ideas than time to complete them all. We are located in beautiful Opiki about 20km from Palmerston North(15-20 minutes). Opiki is less than 2 hours from Wellington and in close proximity to beaches, walk and cycle ways and many other of New Zealand's exciting recreational areas. We are happy to pick you up from Palmerston North if you don't have your own transport.
Region: CataloniaWe are John and Montse an English / Catalan couple (with two Catalan cats) and are in the process of setting up an eco-glamping site in the heart of rural Catalonia. We are based about 1.5 hours outside Barcelona about 10kms from a beautiful and very traditional town called Solsona. The property was built ~20 years ago as a hunting lodge on the site of an old masia. It is on top of a hill around 600m high, surrounded by woodland and has stunning views to Montserrat in the south and north to Pedraforca, the mountains of Cadi and Port del Comte ski station. It is also at the entrance to the Vall d’Ora which is a beautiful and untouched valley. Our aim is to open a small (but perfectly formed) glampsite with just a few tents set in a beautiful forest surrounding. We want to integrate with the environment as much as possible to give people the opportunity to enjoy a night outdoors in this stunning area.
Region: LimousinAs I have been seriously ill during the last two years, I wasn't able to do much painting and decorating, but this November I would like to start and I really could use some help with that! My house is situated in hamlet with 6 houses in a rural environment. The neighbors are very open and friendly and often come over for a meal or just a chat. The nearest shops are about 7 kilometers from here. There are a whole lot of nice cities to visit, like Aubusson, Giat, Montluçon or Clermont-Ferrand. And if you like to walk, you can do so right from the house. In exchange for your help I can offer you a nice guestroom, delicious French meals, French conversations lessons, and trips to sights/cities during the weekend. As I would like to show you around a bit, I would appreciate if you stay for 2 weeks. Or more :-)
