Area: OntarioEnjoy Niagara Falls! Our home is in the city of Niagara Falls. There is so much to see and do: the Falls, the Niagara River Gorge, dozens of attractions including summer concerts and fireworks over the falls, and numerous wineries are nearby. If you enjoy hiking, you can hike down the Niagara Glen to the water's edge or hike a section of the Bruce Trail (Canada's longest public footpath) which passes by less than 1 km from our home. There are also historic villages and war of 1812 battlefields. We have bicycles available for guest use. We are in a subdivision that is 6 km from the Niagara River Parkway, and 8 km from the Falls. There is bus and train service to Toronto. We are 118 km from Toronto and drive in occasionally. The Rainbow and the Queenston-Lewiston bridges to New York State are each less than 10 minutes away. We are a newly retired couple (a teacher and a writer). Our 24-old son is home occasionally, but often away for work. We have an 11 yr old dog, a Yorkshire Terrier who is quiet and loves everyone.
Area: Poitou CharentesWe are a bilingual French and English couple who came to live in France permanently after pursuing busy careers in the UK. We have always owned and competed with horses and in 2006 we bought our dream farm here in the south of the Vienne in the Poitou Charente in order to pursue our passion of working with horses full time. We now run a small private Elevage breeding Lusitanien horses and run an active and very friendly riding Club. We offer lessons here on our horses and organise all sorts of horse related activities for our members including training on their horses, randonnées, dressage, show jumping etc as well as a number of social activities. Yannick is a qualified BHS Intermediate Instructor and is also qualified in the French system. In the UK he undertook some of his training with the Bartles at The Yorkshire Riding Centre and in France worked as an Instructor training trainee riding instructors at the CPA Lathus. We have over 90 years experience between us working with horses in dressage, eventing, show jumping and carriage driving. We also really enjoy randonnées and Le Trec. The farm is 55acres of grassed paddocks surrounded by hedges and oak-trees. We have a large barn for storage of hay which we grow ourselves and several boxes as well as a large (50x30m) fenced outdoor arena. The countryside around here is very pretty with a network of chemins (tracks) which are suitable for riding, walking and biking. Our nearest towns are 15/20 minutes drive away and although not isolated it is a small rural community with few facilities on the doorstep. Our nearest towns are L'Isle Jourdain and Confolens, both pretty and historic on the river Vienne.

Area: JunínWe are a small farm located in the heart of the central jungle, in the region of Junín. The project was founded in 2010 by the will of some friends of France and Juan Carlos grown here. We chose the name for our project because we value the people of San Antonio High Pichanaki: we want this little Peruvian people again have pride and autonomy for the creation of an eco tourism project and solidarity. The farm covers organic coffee and bananas, reforestation, environmental education, cultural life and support local producers. We are a call to tourists arriving in the area to support the project, is a call to the same people for them to see their jungle otherwise. Works closely with NGOs: the benefits of tourism activities serve to bring funds for NGO projects. This type of tourism called "solidarity tourism 'and is a more and more serious concern in Europe and the United States. Being a tourist but also to support the community, this is the most important idea! ... Nosotros somos una chacra que se encuentra en el corazón de la selva central, en la region de Junín. El projecto nace en el año 2010 por la voluntad de unos amigos de Francia y Juan Carlos crecido en este lugar. Elegimos el nombre para nuestro proyecto porque queremos valorizar el pueblo de San Antonio de Alto Pichanaki: queremos que este pequeño pueblo peruano vuelva a tener orgullo y autonomía para la creación de un proyecto turístico ecológico y de solidaridad. La chacra se ocupa de café y platanos organicos, reforestacion, educación al medio ambiente, vida cultural y apoyo a los productores de la zona. Nosotros somos una llamada a los turistas que llegan en la zona para apoyar el proyecto, es una llamada a los pobladores mismo para que ellos vean su selva de otra manera. Trabaja mano a mano con la ONG: los beneficios de las actividades turísticas sirven a llevar fondos para los proyectos de la ONG. Este tipo de turismo se llama « turismo de solidaridad » y es una preocupación más y más fuerte en Europa y Estados Unidos. Ser turista pero también apoyar a la comunidad, esta es la idea más importante!
