Area: British ColumbiaWe run our own Vineyard located in sunny Cawston in the Similkameen Valley. Cawston is only a 40 minute drive from Penticton and offers lots of recreational opportunities. Hiking, Swimming & Tubing (at the local river or nearby lakes) are just some of these activities. Our household consists of my husband and I, our oldest daughter, her husband, and 2 children. We also have a dog and 5 cats. We are a happy, hardworking, and outgoing family. Although we work hard (and expect our workers to do the same), we also like to spend evenings relaxing with fine wines and good times :)
Area: MarcheI live in a seaside town called Pesaro with my two girls, Emma aged 9 and Dalia aged 7. I'm Alessandra, Italian with an Austrian/Italian background. I've lived overseas, firstly in London for 6 years and then Chicago for 3 years. My children already have a good command of English but I would really like someone to help them to continue and improve. We love spending time on the beach which is a 15 minute walk away from our house. We enjoy travel and often visit family in Innsbruck; Austria for the Summer and in Winter skiing. Emma plays the violin and appeared in three concerts this year. She's very studious, loves reading comics, enjoys being outside and playing with friends. She's a little quiet until she gets to know you. She likes to weigh up the situation before jumping in to anything. Dalia is the complete opposite, she'll dive in feet first......she's not afraid of anything. Dalia loves running around, playing, dressing up in costumes, basically going crazy. She's fun and always has everyone laughing.
Area: GraubündenDear workawayers, First I would thank you very much for all kind requests and all the help received. But please do not ask again for this year, there is no possibility for more workawayers. Hello, I'm Agnes (62 years) and I'm living in the german speaking part of Switzerland in Schiers. It is near Klosters and Davos, a well known part of Switzerland. Here a have a big wooden house with 8 rooms. Since more than a year I have 4 bed& breakfast rooms and it is running quite well. I have the house since 4 years and there is always a lot of work to do around and in the house. For me workaway is a wonderful possibility to know people from everywhere and to have some help, all at the same time. You will have an owen room and you can use other rooms as well. Of course you will receive also free food, I like to cook and I am interested in cooking from other countries as well. The area where I live has a lot of possibilities like hiking, biking, climbing, some lakes. Working time would be 3-4 hours a day. Please feel free to ask me every thing you would know. I'm looking forward to receive your request.
Area: Abelaido, A Lama, Pontevedra GaliciaHi I'm Petra born in Holland some 45 years ago. I've spent the last 15 years building and restoring the ruins and land I bought. Now my 13 years old son and I are living and working the land that needs some careful human hand sometimes.. We are musicians and I am also artist in other ways, giving painting classes in the area ... I'm working toward having workshops and courses to give opportunity to share this little nature paradise.
