Area: North CanterburyWe live in sunny North Canterbury on a quarter acre with our two delightful children, Nathan (9yrs) and Ella (7yrs), chickens, tropical fish, a dog and a cat. The beach is 2 minutes away over the sand dunes, 15 minutes walk to great cafe, 10 minutes cycle to the pub, 7 minutes car ride to local town (Amberley), 50 minutes drive to Christchurch. We have a list of half completed projects a mile long. Can you help? John is English and I dragged him back to NZ with me after we got married. We did some travelling in Europe and Africa and loved it. Meeting new people in new places was an important part of travelling for us. Having you to stay would be a great oppotunity for our children and us to learn about the world and other cultures.
Area: Midi Pyrenees, South West France.Hi, my name is Dorian I'm 48 years old, dual national, half french and half English. I teach Tai Chi Chuan 3 days a week in Toulouse, South West France, where I have been living for the past 24 years. I have just acquired a house in the mountains, the previous owners called it a chalet... but i's not made of wood, it could also be called a "Grange" because they were originally used to keep animals and hay during the winter. The house faces a local (mystical) mountain called the "Cagire" and is a 10 minute drive from the lovely mountain town called Aspet in the French Pyrenees. The nearest town with a train station is called Saint Gaudens situated 15 Km away from Aspet.
Area: Bocas del Toro, PanamaWe are a small Bed and Breakfast retreat (3 rooms) in the beautiful province of Bocas Del Toro, Panama. We ARE NOT A HOSTEL. Our clientele are not typically backpackers. We are located on the end of Isla Solarte in the Bahia Honda bay. I have recently acquired the property and want to do a lot of upgrades and maintenance to make this a truly unique and relaxing experience for guests. I have a staff of two persons that help with cooking, cleaning and yard maintenance. And a two year old puppy/dog that helps create more projects for us. Volunteers for room and board will be expected to help with ALL aspects/chores of running the Bed and Breakfast
Area: WalesDUE TO CANCELLATION, WE NOW HAVE A SLOT AVAILABLE FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, SEPT 1-31, 2014. We run a small goat dairy on our family smallholding overlooking the sea near Llangrannog in SW Wales, where we milk the goats and make our award-winning probiotic drink, soap and skin cream. We are looking for a cheerful, energetic English-speaking helper. Our life centers around the animals, making sure that they are happy, clean, milked and well-fed. Tasks are dictated largely by weather, season and what needs doing. You will learn to make goatsmilk soap and hand cream - really fun! ; )
Area: UmbriaI have a small self-catering holiday business. I am widow in my mid 60's and live in an apartment upstairs and there are two further apartments for holiday let downstairs. I have a swimming pool, quite a reasonable size garden, a vegetable Orto and a small olive grove of 40 young trees. This place is situated between two villages each 2km away. I am looking for help in March , mostly outside work preparing my property for guests so I need fit, competent mature(ish) DIYers and gardeners to paint, carry out simple maintenance and dig over & plant up my veg patch. I am happy to accept couples too. I like to work alongside whenever possible and what has worked well so far has been to work mornings for 4 hours, six days a week, leaving Sundays and afternoons free for everyone, but if helpers want a day off to explore further afield that's fine too. Lago Trasimeno (4th largest Lake in Italy) is 10km away and there are two other smaller lakes nearby. It is a beautiful location on a proper road and there is a very limited bus service I grow my own veg and sell my olive oil to clients when I have enough. The olive grove is grown organically and I try to grow my vegetables as organically as possible. Helpers have the use of one of my two bedroom apartments (which will need to be cleaned on leaving!)and live self catering or eat with me whichever you prefer. I like cooking, am a meat eater but can cope with vegetarian preferences, however more specialized food regimes will need to cater for themselves There are bikes, internet access,sky TV/video and a DVD available for helpers use and I a like to include hepers in my life during their stay if they wish to be part of it. Any potential helpers must be animal lovers because I have two large friendly dogs (labrador & labrador cross), three cats and four chickens all of which are gentle and friendly.
