Area: GraubündenHello We are a multicultural team (India and Switzerland) and family building up an guesthouse in the mountains with Ayurvedic theraphy - the buildings used to belong to an association and we saved it for the mountain village (was supposed to be closed and not open to the public anymore). Now we have to renovate it slowly (we appreciate also somebody who knows to fix little things, and build up the guesthouse (an hostel). The guesthouse has international guests. We also have an restaurant offering delicious Swiss and Indian Food. Great place to discover nature, but also retreat if you simply want to relax enjoying the power of mountains. Activities: snowshoing, skiing, sledging, Paragliding, mountain-biking, hiking, rock-climbing and and and and
Area: LimousinWe are Tim and Juliet and have taken early retirement and moved from the UK and have lived in the rural Central/Limousin border region of France since November 2011. Although we have had our home here for 11 years and have almost completed the renovation of the house, we are now undertaking the renovation of the barn, turning one third of it into a 2 bedroomed gite. Tim is of a building background having had his own construction business for many years in the UK (No heavy digging or trenching as we have a JCB for that!!) and I was in the catering/hospitality business for over 35 years. We also have almost a hectre of land of which we are dedicating to a large fruit and veg plot, shrubberies and "lawn". We have Gypsy our very lively West Highland Terrier who loves everyone, 2 french black cats, Renee and Henry and 7 laying hens.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonMy Husband Malcolm and I purchased the house in 2005 and we are running a Chambres D'hotes and during the summer months we rent out the villa. We have a seperate apartment also. Malcolm is still running a plant business in the UK and manages to get home around 1 week per month dependent upon demands in the UK. I have 1 Son living in the UK who is around 30. Malcolm does not have any children. The house has 6 bedrooms a large lounge and kitchen, terraces all around the house and a large garden with swimming pool (not heated). I am very gregarious and would also enjoy having company around.
Area: Amsterdam.I DON'T NEED ANY HELP AT THE MOMENT AND ALSO NOT PLANNING FOR LATER. I live alone with a cat in my cozy little house in Amsterdam, and I need a motivated person, who can help me with daily household tasks, such as cleaning, doing the groceries and cooking. My cat Lugosi needs to be brushed and given plenty of attention and love, so you should definetely love cats, if you want to come to my place. Computer skills are an optional, but also very welcome. I will only ask a few hour work every day, with a variable timetable, depending on my plans and needs; but I need a motivated, flexible and enthousiastic person, preferably over 25 years old, and ready to share a living space. I myself am very flexible and willing to share. In exchange for your work, you will get a cozy room in one of the nicest neighborhood of Amsterdam, facing the park, nice food and pleasant company. If you wish, I can also teach you some aerials, which I practice on a regular basis. This is what I really need, at the moment: -Help with cleaning and doing the shopping -Help with packing and organize my house before my next trip to Crete -Help with computer issues and music download -Language exchange in french and german Something about myself: I live part of the year in Crete, Greece, another part in Amsterdam; my main passion is the aerial tissue, which I practice three, four times a week. Occasionally I give lesson and perform. I can only accomodate one workawayer at a time; please, do not apply for more than one. Please write "Helping in Westerpark" as a subject of your email, so I can see that you actually took the time to read my profile.
Area: KentuckyWe farm organically, mostly with horses. Live sort of self-sufficient lifestyle in off grid home, but have farm office with Internet access. Contact us for the link to our youtube farm/music video where you can see farm and meet us. It's different now with the children growing /going and we lost my wife in 2010. now only one child still on farm and they are now away at times now for school/work. Too short handed to continue as normal, but trying 'work exchange' for some extra hands while scaling down. Located in beautiful central Kentucky, one hour north of 'MUSIC CITY USA' (Nashville, TN). Lots of lakes, rivers and world's largest cave system. Mammoth Cave National Park. Also Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is America most visited Park and is an easy drive. You can check them both out on line. We're not commercially farming now, just growing and preserving much of our own food and for our animals. We breed, raise and train border collies for herding. All of our animals have free run of pastures, except the Border collies we are training. Unless fully trained, if left unsupervised herding dogs will find and possibly harm livestock. So we need help exercising and caring for the dogs since they stay in pens. We also need help caring for the goats, sheep, cows and horses. We also have our own milk cow and sometimes milk goats. We make our own yogurt, can our own food ect. Have four horses for farming and occasional riding. Wild turkeys and deer and peacocks commonly seen. We heat and cook with woodstoves. Sometime we work hard; sometimes we do not. Summer days in growing season can be long and hard, but rainy days help balance it out. We normally take some time off for fun things. That said, life is pretty satisfying just like we are living, so it's not a 'need to get away' thing, we just like to go kayaking and other things too. Feel free to ask anything you wish to determine if interested in visiting and helping us. We enjoy working/interacting with others including those different culturally and spiritually. We've had visitors/helpers from several foreign countries and around the states; through a different work exchange It has been a great two-way experience so far. If you wish, we are glad to supply you with reviews from our guest since it was through another organization. Be wise...be thankful, JCK & Family
