Area: BrittanyI am widowed but live with my new partner. We are both senior citizens but very young in our outlook on life and still very active. We live with 4 dogs and about 10 cats (some are Ferrel), two geese and a few chickens. We live in a 250 year old stone house in a small hamlet about 7 km from the beautiful and ancient walled town of Dinan in Brittany.
Area: Midi PyreneesHi, we are an English / Dutch couple who live the beautiful Dordogne River Valley in Lot, SW France. We have a large gîte in the former farmhouse, our accommodation in the former barn, and grounds, which take up most of our time – together with the management of other gîtes and holiday homes nearby ! We are friendly, and pretty easy to get along with. The area in which we live is rural, with the nearest market town (bars and restaurants, plus usual amenities) being around 2 miles away. We are close to many of the Plus Beaux Villages de France which are historic and some medieval in origin. The river Dordogne is just fifteen minutes dirve from here and is great for canoeing. We will happily take you to see some of these places as they are not to be missed. We are midst a farming community and our neighbours are friendly and welcoming for they love their countryside. We have a mixture of friends - French, English, Dutch, American, German, South African and Australian - and suppers can be noisy and fun when people drop by........ we tend to have our main meal in the evenings, and lunch is soup and cheese , omelettes or salads.
Area: Oregon*We need someone for April and May! We are a married and in our late twenties. We are eager to offer a live-in opportunity with horse privileges in exchange for childcare for our precious 21-month old daughter. We like organic food, yoga, horses, knitting, traveling, skateboarding, snowboarding, cross country skiing, running, mountain biking, and rock climbing...pretty much anything outdoors! We operate a Horseback Riding Program where we teach kids natural horsemanship and positive reinforcement. We have about 12 rescue horses and we provide scholarships for some students. We are a very happy family and like to travel ourselves. We hope that you will enjoy staying with us as much as we enjoy hosting. We can help you explore the area. We have hosted several times before and know how to make you feel welcome and keep you busy. All of our staff, students, and parents, are kind, fun, and natural.
