Area: Coimbra and CenterIn 1998 we - Hans and Irene - left The Netherlands and became the proud owners of a campsite in Portugal. It is an unique outpost in the centre of Portugal. It is located in the heart of the Costa da Prata, the region with its diversified cultural and natural beauty. We have opted for a more responsible form of tourism that places great emphasis on respect for the country, its inhabitants and its culture. Over the years we have tried to give our campsite its own identity, which is very different from the chaotic beach campsites where you trip over the numerous tent pegs. The campsite is set up spaciously and the vegetation provides plenty of variety: figs, mimosa, bougainvillea, fruit trees, cacti, etc. A swimming pool is nestled in the greenery.On the hill behind the campground, goats, pot-belly pigs, chicks, ducks and guinea pigs potter about like good friends in the children’s farm. And last but not least: “A Cantina”, a small bar/restaurant where Hans prepares delicious dishes from the Iberian cuisine.
Area: Castilla la ManchaHola soy Mar, estoy construyendo con ayuda de amigos y voluntarios mi casa en el campo. Ya está creciendo el huerto, pero aún queda barro por poner en las paredes. Me encantaría recibir a alguien con conocimientos de carpintería ya que la casa necesita un porche, a parte de unos muebles hechos con pallets. La creatividad tiene cabida en todos los rincones, también en los mosaicos de la cocina. Hasta que funcione la ducha hay una habitación con dos camas en la casa del pueblo,(típica manchega) pero yo me quedo a menudo en el campo. La casa es muy agradable y acogedora, pero es un loft con altillo y compartiriamos la estancia. Siempre disfruto mucho de la compañía de la gente agradable que me visita, hacemos salidas al campo en las tablas de Daimiel y las lagunas de Ruidera que podemos recorrer en el kayak. Hay pueblos muy bonitos en los alrededores como Almagro con su festival internacional de teatro en Julio y Campo de Criptana por ejemplo. el trabajo es de 5 horas al día y yo aporto las comidas y alojamiento.
Area: We are situated in Byrne Valley, Richmond, Kwazulu Natal. A very beautiful, serene and picturesque area with natural grasslands, indigenous forest and a small village of mainly retired people. There are beautiful walks we would be happy to show you and a horse for horse rides.We are a family of four living on a twenty hectare Organic Farm. Our aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and farm in a morally responsible manner. We have +/- twenty cows which we milk, eat and use as fertilisors; four breeding pigs; in-numeral chickens for eggs, meat and as de-tickers; a flock of geese. The herd of goats is for land-clearing and milk; the horse, mule and donkey for grazing rotation. Our three dogs besides being pets are for breeding. We also have a few hives of bees for honey. We grow our own vegetables in our large vegetable garden. We have two children, who are home schooled, so volunteers who enjoy children are especially welcome.
Area: Midi PyreneesHi there! We're looking for a couple or a single male that can be left to get on with projects. We live in the Couseran National Park, Ariege in a little hamlet. Our nearest town is Saint Girons which is famous throughout the Pyrenees for it's Saturday market. We are well travelled folk ourselves however becoming pregnant with our number 2 we decided to buy this beautiful farmhouse and settle down. We chose here purely for the lifestyle. Rich in food, rich in health and rich in beauty. We have a good mixture of local and international friends and we are a bilingual family. Life here in the hamlet is pretty special. Although our neighbors are a lot older (and were born here in the hamlet, literally) they have welcomed us with open arms and accepted us as one of their own and have been teaching us their ways. We would always welcome some help around the house and there is a never ending list of jobs big and small to do on the property ranging from gardening, landscaping, building, barn clearance etc. The area that we live in is for folk that love the outdoors. We are 1hr 30 mins direct south of Toulouse, 3hrs to either coast (Biarittz on the Atlantic and Perpignan on the Med) 4hrs to Barcelona. Andorra is just a short hop and a skip too. Our nearest ski resort, Guzet, is 45 mins drive away. Get in contact if you like what you read.
Area: MalagaWe run a successful tour business and we need a helping hand from a happy friendly workaway. Work is light general gardening, painting, light cleaning and lending a helping hand as necessary. No major projects. Villa is stunning, large swimming pool, own room, Wifi etc. Based in a medium sized village 12km from Antequera. Prefer outgoing friendly, self starter workaways ready to undertake general chores. 4 hours a day in return for food and lodging. We also take workaways on some tour days for trips to the Cities of Andalucia so they can enjoy and visit them. If you think you meet the profile contact us and we'll see if we have availability for you. Must be able to speak basic level English. The kids with 'Tag' have now moved back to England for the kids education and I (Gary) flit between the two places as my business is here in Spain. So the workaway position is not with family help anymore, but more to help around the Villa with general maintenance.
