Area: Valdivia, Región de Los RíosI'm zoologist, working in wildlife conservation, especially with endangered species such as some South American aquatic mammals. I live in a 3-hectare plot on the hillside overlooking the Bay of Corral, several rivers and the sea. The plot is located in the town of Niebla, 18 km from the city of Valdivia. My family currently lives in Spain where my children are doing college. I worked many years in an NGO dedicated to the conservation of nature and now I trate, and now I try to combine my work in wildlife conservation proyects and the farm work. I get volunteers who are interested in knowing the work on a small farm with traditional techniques and also to assist in conservation of wildlife. Prefer volunteers to be at least a month to teach the job, know the culture and show other places in southern Chile where I do my conservation projects.
Area: BrittanyHi, Mark and I are renovating a farm house here in beautiful Brittany. We left the rat race and moved here 3 years ago. I used to be a uni lecturer (Social Policy) and Mark was self employed.) We have a variety of animals, and grow our own food. We no longer have the opportunity to travel because of our small holding commitments so opening our home to Workaways is the next best thing. The only thing better than living in our lovely location is giving other people the opportunity to share the experience. There are many outdoor pursuits available in our area, from horse riding to canoeing. There are lakes, forests, trails and neolithic sites right on our doorstep and a variety of beaches within 40 minutes of the house. Bikes will be made available. We like to nip down to the beach on a fine day, that's the beauty of living in Central Brittany, you can choose the best coast according to the weather forecast. Although our house still needs a lot of work, bedrooms, the bathroom and toilet are all renovated and you will have a comfortable bed, modern facilities, good food and a warm welcome any time of the year.

Area: Rhône-AlpesWorkaway Note: Please contact this host in French Hello there, we have just arrived in a farmhouse in the hamlet of Bonjean in the small village of Montfalcon. This village is in the middle of the natural park of Chambaran. There is a lot of walking to do nearby (walking, cycling, horse ...). But also many things to visit : St Antoine Abbey, the Ideal Palace of Postman Cheval, St André coast, Vercors ... We live 2 in this farm and we will develop an agricultural activity around beekeeping, of peasant hospitality and bakery shelter. All our productions are labeled bio see "Nature and Progres". We are currently being installed and managers in the living light show. The work and our professional activities leave us little free time. So we are not able to assist you in systematically exploring the region. But we will do it with pleasure whenever possible. We like to share and discover during construction of base course and during meals! See you soon! ---- Bonjour, nous venons d'arriver dans une ferme au hameau du Bonjean dans le petit village de Montfalcon. Ce village est en plein milieu du parc naturel des Chambaran. Il y a beaucoup de balade à faire dans les environs (à pied, à vélo, à cheval...). Mais aussi beaucoup de choses à visiter : St Antoine l'abbaye, le Palais idéal du facteur Cheval, la côte St André, le Vercors... Nous vivons à 2 dans cette ferme et nous allons y développer une activité agricole autour de l'apiculture, un gîte d'accueil paysan et un fournil. Toutes nos productions seront labellisées bio voir "Nature et Progrés". Nous sommes en cours d'installation et actuellement régisseurs lumière dans le spectacle vivant. Les travaux et nos activités professionnelles ne nous laissent que peu de temps libre. Nous ne pourrons donc pas vous accompagner systématiquement dans la découverte de la région. Mais nous le ferons avec plaisir à chaque fois que cela est possible. Nous apprécions d'échanger et de se découvrir pendant les travaux en communs et bien entendu pendant les repas ! A bientôt !
