Area: Midi PyreneesWe are a family of 3, our son is 10 years old. We live in a renovated farmhouse set in 76 acres of rolling countryside. We have 7 horses including youngsters and foal, 3 dogs and a few mouse-catching cats. This is a rural spot about 30 minutes from large towns. You can borrow our bikes, horse-ride or search out beautiful walks with orchids and birds along the route. There is always work needing to be done and the variety is almost as endless as the list! The surrounding area is dotted with traditional old hill-top villages, bustling french markets and lovely scenery. We are English speaking at home, although fluent in French.
Area: Koh LantaBased on Koh Lanta in the south west of Thailand. Our objective is to relieve the suffering and pain of the animals on the island through sterilisation and care. To date, we have sterilised and treated over 6,000 animals.
Area: BrandenburgIf you are looking for a (most of the time) quite place close to nature you would probably like our farm. Between Berlin and Hamburg we live on a old farm built in 1870. There is always a lot to do like mowing, fencing, picking weeds. And inside are still some rooms that need to be renovated. We are a small family if you just count us three but there are also three dogs, a cat, four horses and three sheep. Honestly we are a bit crazy about them and so they are all a bit spoiled. :) We are very busy as we make natural soaps and sell them online. But when ever we have time we like to show you our favourite spots, the cute little old towns around and the beautiful nature. There is a train station in our town, so you can easily catch a train to Berlin or just to the next town. There is also a little shop if you need anything, but we will provide you with food (mostly vegan) and also take you shopping with us. If you like water activities there is a pond for swimming close by and lots of little rivers and canals. We are having guest rooms and a apartment we rent to holiday guest, You would stay in one of those rooms.
Area: LazioI'm a single mother and live in a shared house in a very nice area of Rome. The house is big, there's a spare room and it's central. I live with 2 other people. We're all in our late thirties-early fourties and there's a lovely atmosphere in the house. It's not your average family! I work a few afternoons per week and need help looking after my little daughter when she's back from nursery school and I'm at work. THERE IS ONLY ROOM FOR ONE PERSON AT A TIME - SORRY NO COUPLES.
Area: Close to Ronda in AndaluciaI write guide books and work as a walking guide. I live in a pretty village in southern Spain, close to Ronda at the edge of the Grazalema Natural Park. Needing help from April 5, when my current volunteers leave, with gardening, decoration, cooking and shopping and maybe some minor bits of building work. At present I'm restoring a vintage caravan in an old olive grove overlooking the Zahara lake where help and input is needed to create a 'dry' garden, using succulent plants that need little water. You'll need to have a clean driving licence, and be 25 years or older, to be covered by my car insurance. I may be away at times so you'd need to be of independent spirit and happy to occasionally look after things here on your own ...
