Area: Poitou CharentesI have just retired after a 22 year carear in the British Army and my husband is retired from the French Navy, We bought our house in October 2011, in France and we are slowly starting to renovate. We have roofs to repair, buildings to render and an extension to build! We also have two hectares of land where our horse and ponies, sheep and two collie dogs live. We have started to reclaim our land as the hedge was taking over and was 2-3 metres deep in places and a 40 tree orchard.
Area: ScandinaviaI run a small Bed and Breakfast (five rooms) on the island Moen, situated 125 km. southeast of Copenhagen. It is only 400 m from the Baltic Sea with a fantastic view, and a beach just seven minutes walk away. It is and old, renovated farm, and I live here myself. During summer guests are visiting from all over the world. Lots come on bikes, and most of them stay for one or two nights. I offer meals in the evening as well - especially bikers like that -, so they don't have to go another 8 km to the town to get something to eat.
Area: OtagoHi I am a strong believer in family comes first. In my village of Oamaru there are many artistic creative people. It has a working Victorian precinct that is of world heritage with many attractions. My mother and brother's family live here, also my daughter and her children are near by. My retirement dream of a life style farm let with sheep, and extensive grounds tucked into a rural setting make for a quiet setting for an ideal quality home stay environment. Help on a small market garden would be useful as would some house hold duties. I am so proud of this area I have many day trips to showcase out neighbourhood. My main past times are, if not spent with family are playing the sport of lawn bowls and completion bridge. I also like to travel and this has made me aware of all the different cultures.
Area: HamburgWelcome in Hamburg ! We are a young family living in a beautifull nature where we founded an eco-project early this year near by a nature reservat . Although you will not believe when you see the beautifull landscape here, we are still inside Hamburg. We always need help with farming , restauration and other things you possibly like to do here. We have enough space for ideas, or simply enjoy the beautifull atmosphere while helping to develop this project. We wish you would stay at least 2 weeks, and you can decide if you live more seperate with own cooking and housing or close to us in the main house. We are at the beginning with this eco project - and many things will be done the first time. If you like - let´s contact via Skype, let´s see if we have free space in your prefered time period. Yours Vera, Louisa, Anna, Arnd
Area: Herefordshire close to Welsh borderWe live on the outskirts of a small market town and would like some help on our smallholding. We grow fruit and vegetables and we keep chickens. At various times we need help outside with the vegetables and garden, small building projects and diy, and also with housework, cooking and decorating. My 28 year old daughter lives in a caravan on site but has a full time job. My partner is slightly disabled, and I have arthritis in my hands and had an operation on my back earlier this year so we need some extra muscle . It is a good area for walking and cycling. The town (with several pubs, supermarket etc) is in walking distance, and there are buses to Hereford, a small city 20 miles away. Accommodation is in caravans and a summerhouse. You would eat with us in the house of course. Washing machine and wifi internet access are available in the house.
