Area: United KingdonI am a commercial beekeeper running 200 hives I also run a smallholding with hens ,turkeys ,pigs,and attend farmers markets. I live near Kings Lynn which is a small market town in the east of England.
Area: SicilyI run a guest house in Modica, Sicily. I opened last year, and since then I've done all pretty much by myself. I am looking for someone who can run the guest house with me for the entire season, and run it without me when I am out of town for business. Running the guest house on your own includes: using the reservation system, staying in the reception area during the day for check-ins, check-outs, assisting guests with local information, quality control, ensure everything runs smoothly, taking reservation calls, preparing the list of rooms to clean for the housekeeper and helping in cleaning when necessary. Because the guest house has got just few rooms, all the above tasks, beside being available at the reception during your shift, will take just a small part of the day. So if you are a freelancer, a writer or you just like reading or studying, you will have plenty of time to do so during your shift. Job requirements include, beside having a positive, open minded and friendly attitude, a good knowledge of Italian - very important - you must be able to speak with guests to check them in, out, taking reservations calls and give them directions and information. Guests are mainly Italian and part English speakers, so these skills are necessary for this position. In exchange I'll offer an experience in the hospitality industry and in Sicily. You could improve your Italian and experience the local culture. The guest house is extremely central, within walking distance you can really experience this beautiful "Barocco & chocolate" city. I would offer a single room with private bathroom, WiFi, guests communal kitchen use and some money for meals and extra.
Area: TuscanyCiao, we are a family of five, with three cats. We live in San Pancrazio, in a red house 6 kilometres far from Lucca. We are peaceful and easygoing, the girls (8, 5 and 3 y.o.) love being with people and making new friends. We need a little help with the girls when they come back from school in the afternoon and during the evenings when we are at work. Our red house is in a "corte" or court in the country in a nice place that is calm and quiet. We have just moved here so we still have some work in the garden to do with the little land we have. You can easily reach a little town near our house by bike or if you take the cycling lane you can easily reach Lucca in 25 minutes.

Area: Upper-Austria // Wels / LinzNamasté! My name is "Mela", I am born in 1980 and I am renovating an old little house at the time - and moved there in the end of December with my "family" (my dog Chevy, 7 years, Karma, 1 year in December and my cat Bonnie,15 years). Living here will be a kind of "down-to-earth" - we will have to heat the house with wood, there is no regular street to the house ... for me it fits quite good the way it is. :) I am vegan - so your food over here will be vegan too - you don't have to be vegan or vegetarian - but you should be open-minded ;) and definitely LOVE dogs (my dog is slabbering/has sulliver around his mouth! - and he loves contact and to play around or snuggling - he is a member of my family - ditching him is a kind of ditching me ... ) ... You can meet my family that is not living far and get in contact with my younger brother who is handicapped - he loves when people come over for watching TV with him and telling stuff in English ... maybe you want to share some time with him - you can if it fits for both of you. My family is really wonderful and open-minded. I believe in the power of love, an open heart, believe in the good things coming and am interested in herbs, meditation, yoga (if you could teach me some more would be great) ... - but I moved just in December so I have to start the garden :) I love to cook and do things on my own - so I love to cook jam, preserving food, making seitan by myself ... I love the natural-building-stuff but I don't know too much about that ... also love to upcycle things, fleamarkets and to use as less money as possible ... buy used stuff or just "exchange" :) I would love to have again a growing-house - if you ever built one out of windows or other free stuff: yes, let's do it ... !
