Area: British ColumbiaOur two legged family consists of my husband and I, both in our early sixties. Our four legged family includes four horses, four miniature horses, six dogs and two cats. We live on a five acre hobby farm in Nelson, BC with a larger recreational acreage on the nearby Slocan river. My passion is my horses both for recreational riding and competitive driving. I use my miniature horses in a youth program promoting horse handling skills and driving. My husband enjoys skiing and kayaking.
Area: Costa de la LuzLooking for a couple. We own a house and cabins 5km from some of the best beaches in Europe. We´re looking for a practical couple or individual volunteers who would like to come and stay for a least a month in exchange for free accommodation. Its a great place to escape from the rat race for a while and enjoy the Spanish lifestyle as well as beach life. Great for walkers, surfers, bikers or people who just enjoy the countryside
Area: British ColumbiaWe run our own Vineyard located in sunny Cawston in the Similkameen Valley. Cawston is only a 40 minute drive from Penticton and offers lots of recreational opportunities. Hiking, Swimming & Tubing (at the local river or nearby lakes) are just some of these activities. Our household consists of my husband and I, our oldest daughter, her husband, and 2 children. We also have a dog and 5 cats. We are a happy, hardworking, and outgoing family. Although we work hard (and expect our workers to do the same), we also like to spend evenings relaxing with fine wines and good times :)
Area: Gara Lakatnik, BulgariaWe are Igor and Petya, a family from Bulgaria, with our 6 years old daughter Eva. Couple of years ago we bought a land and a small 70 years old house in Bulgaria, in a unique mountain area, some 70 km. away from the capital Sofia. The place is some 5 km. away from Gara Lakatnik village, famous for its climbing tours and caves. We decided to renovate the house using cob and straw. After attending a course in UK and researching tons of information, we finally started our project in 2013. Last summer we managed to clean the site, finished the foundations and almost finished the roof. This year we aim to finish the house by building the cob walls and the interior. Also we want to start a perma garden. We are looking for volunteers to help us with building, gardening and with some side works. In exchange we offer to people, who are interested to practice building with natural materials, a place for gaining and sharing knowledge and experience. The site is quite wild, so the accommodation will be with tents. We provide food three times a day. There is electricity and running water on site. The place is interesting for climbers, there are great possibilities for biking, hiking and birdwatching.
Area: Chiang MaiA cooperation between two Thai women who have the similar skills and one has a small hostel and Art Studio where needs some guests to stay and do some arts. Pui and A, we met three years ago. After we hanged out many times, we found out that we have the same idea about home-stay and tours; especially we both like arts. We love the same thing as a local Thai stuff and like to adapt or modify anything to become arts. Because of Pui has a property which is a good location for home-stay business. She likes to spend her time for drawing and painting at her farm because of the peace most of the time is provided. So, she built her six bungalows in northern style out there few years ago and still decorating on till now. Then, we discussed about what we could offer our guests from what we have now as much as we could. Normally, I run a tour business in Chiang Mai city. Why not I bring her guests? We are agreed to work together since then, and came up with the main theme is “Art” while educate guests about living in the Northern Thai ways of life by doing many activities in the farm and acknowledge by the villagers, sometimes. Respectfully to our Thai culture is very needed from our volunteers. How to get there? You can take a taxi from the airport and tell your driver to go to Warorot Market (กาดหลวง). Then you take a yellow taxi at the market which is by the Ping River. Taxi's sign in the front will say Mae Rim (แม่ริม) or you cal also take another one (white taxi) says Mae Tang(แม่แตง). Before you get on the taxi, give Pui a call (displayed number) and let she tells your driver to drop you off then she will pick you up on the main road to Mae Tang. The price will be 20 B/person. Call Pui when you arrive, if she is in town she will pick you up.
