A mountain bike is available for you to use.Help needed from March 2014 onward, apply now! Couples (man-woman) preferred for types of jobs that need to be done. Hi, we are a young and dynamic Anglo-Italian couple with 3 lovely children. We run a bed & breakfast and holiday let business from our beautiful house which is set 80km north of Venice and at the foothills of the Dolomites National Park, north-east of Italy. We are looking for cheerful, dynamic and hardworking volunteers with lots of common sense and able to work with own initiative from March through to October time. Help is needed now to prepare the house for guests, painting and decorating, maintaing our woodland, digging the veggie garden, fixing and building things and maybe entertaining the kids if you enjoy spending time with them. We love our job as it's a great way to meet lots of interesting people from all over the world. That's why we think welcoming workawayers is a good idea and a wonderful opportunity for both sides. We can usually provide a bedroom with bathroom, excellent Italian food and local wine. On your days off you can visit the many art cities of the Veneto region (Venice, Padua, Verona ecc.) or hike in the National Park. We live on the hedge of woodland so we would welcome people that love to live in contact with nature.

Area: Languedoc RoussillonWe are a family of three, Stephen, Ioana and Lydia, slowly building a sanctuary on the side of a mountain in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, between the villages of Bugarach and Bezu. The main house is now very comfortable, with six bedrooms, a movement studio and meditation room, and a wonderful orchard under development and a variety of outside spaces growing apace. We are looking for 2 or 3 people to come, work, and enjoy living here with us for a week at a time (no single workawayers please). We have our hands pretty full looking after our 20 month old daughter at the moment, however we are an architect and philosopher by training and inclination and can be guaranteed to engage all who come here in pretty direct conversation. if you appreciate some quiet in you life we will be happy to share it with you.
