Area: AlentejoWe are recently retired and now live on a 10ha organic farm in Alentejo, Portugal. We are in the early stages of setting up the farm and so have lots of jobs and long term projects that we would like to acheive. For this we have decided that we do need some help to develop. We have pigs, sheep, turkeys, hens, ducks, tortoises and dogs. We grow most of our own food. We are in a very beautiful and rural area and you can develop the Portugese language with help from the locals who do not speak English! We are an hours drive inland from the Algarve and just 30 MILES from the stunning west coast beaches. Our village has no shops but the next village which is 6 km away as a small supper market. We have two little bars in the village. The village is very very quiet with very little nightlife so please don`t come thinking you are coming to a tourist resort. This place is for people who like been in touch with nature, and enjoy been apart from big cities. The farm is a working farm and at times is dusty or muddy depending on the weather so working boots and working cloths are essential. Our working day is usually from 7.30 until 1830 yes long hours(often this is just feeding and cleaning the animals but we do have plenty of breaks). If you require to do just the 5 hour days as workaway says this is not a problem just speak up and we will set you 5 ish hours work then you can do what you want. We do go to local shows ,markets and events and you are always welcome to come with us. I am afraid that we are not the busy resort on the coast so please make sure you read and study our profile before contacting us. Our nearest big town is Ourique which is about 12 km away.
Area: Midi PyreneesHi, We are a young (26 and 28) French/English couple. I am Jenny, Im English and arrived in France for work in 2005, met Jeremy and ended up staying. We decided to settle in the Gers so about a year ago we looked and found an old barn to renovate. We are both interested in eco building methods so are using many of these throughout the renovation. Whilst we are renovating we have been lucky enough to be able to rent the house next door to our barns, so we can live on site, whilst also being able to have the conforts of a finished house. We have 3 very friendly cats and a few chickens (for eggs and eating). We also have a small vegetable patch which gets a bit bigger each year. In the summer we eat a lot of our own vegetables, and have a lot of BBQs. We live in a small quiet village, 5km from a small town. The town has all facilities such as restaurants and shops, takeaway, cinema, car rental.. There is also a race track (cars and motorbikes) and a small airfield in the town. In the summer there are local fetes which have displays of 'course landaises'. We are on the edge of the Armagnac area, so on your days off you could also go wine or armagnac tasting. Being a French/English couple we are happy to speak either language, depending on your preference.
Area: Brooklyn, New York CityHello! So my name is Amaku and I'm an artist and a scientist. Specifically, I'm a professional dancer and dance costume designer.
