Area: Beragala HaputaleI own and operate a 15 acre estate in the Uva Province of Sri Lanka. The land is located on Colombo / Wellawaya main road 185 KMs away from Colombo in the village of Nikapotha / Beragala. Beragala is a small town famous for it’s natural beauty and scenery. When we bought the land in 2009, it was neglected with about 2 acres of Black Pepper. We have been working towards turning this beautifully located jungle land to a more habitable exclusive holiday location without disturbing it’s character. We have introduced Tea and a small scale Dairy with a daily production of about 70 liters of milk. The dairy helps us maintain the estate as grass is supplied within and the waste is utilised as fertiliser for the enrichment of soil. The jungle is still intact. We have been investing heavily to develop infrastructure and in the process, built adequate and basic facilities essential for comfortable accommodation. Additional features include use of renewable energy in the form of Bio-gas. We plan to introduce Solar power in order to reduce cost of Electricity. We work closely with local Government Agencies for help and guidance. We welcome guests from all countries but we kindly request that you stay with us for a minimum of 7 days so that we have the time to get to know you and make your stay a great experience for you and for us. This will enable you to visit other tourist locations in the province and also make your stay mutually beneficial. You will have space for a calm and comfortable retreat with breathe-taking views of sunset and sunrise. The jungle is full of birds with a few resident bird species. Other activities recommended – Hiking & Trekking Nature Trails and countryside walking Photography and Filming Bird Watching Beragala is centrally located with easy access to many well known tourist hot spots in Sri Lanka.

Area: South WiltshireUpdate: Currently looking for people from 16th -23rd April, and also 28/29th May for 2 weeks. Andy (Mac) works full time, running his own engineering consultancy. Val is training to be a yoga teacher and is also trying to set up a small pottery business. We are both very into traditional folk music and play in a band together: Mac plays melodeon and Val plays flute. We are ex-vegetarians who now eat fish and Mac also eats bacon and ham. When we were young we travelled a lot and lived in shared houses for many years and now we are both in our 50s, with our children grown up and left home, we miss the company of other like-minded people. At the moment we would prefer 1-2 fairly self-sufficient people, as Val is very busy so you would be mainly on your own in the garden. But we are happy to socialise in the evening! We would also prefer m/f couples or women over the age of 22. And definitely non-smokers, please. We also have an elderly long-haired Sheltie dog who coughs a lot, sheds a lot of hair and runs round in circles when the phone rings.

Area: ParaibaSince I was 17 years old, I knew I'd live in the nature, respecting and experiencing it. My name is Júlio, but everyone knows me as Julíndio, as I'm from Pará, in the Amazonia forest, a place of many different indigenous tribes in Brazil. I have lived in different cities until arriving in the Paraiba state, almost 20 years ago, located in the Northeast of Brazil. After an experience in an ecovillage, I'm now in a beautiful big land where I'm building up a new ecovillage, with an ecotourism complex based on the permaculture philosophy - The Territorio Macuxi. Macuxi is an indigenous tribe from Amazonia where I was born. It's a reference to our origin and the purpose of our environmental protected area - live in harmony with nature, just like indigenous people have always been. The Territorio Macuxi is placed in the South cost of Paraíba, 30 minutes from Joao Pessoa, the capital, in a beach called Jacuma. It's a great nature preserved area where me and my family are transforming a dream into reality. You will have a great experience in the nature, understanding a little about it, changing cultures and meeting people not only from Paraiba, but also from all over the world.
