Area: AlicanteWe are an English family living in the mountains of Spain about 30 minutes inland from the Costa Blanca Mediterranean coast (midway between Valencia and Alicante). Phil and Jo are in their mid-forties, a teacher and musician, and both speak 5 languages (English, Spanish, French, German and Russian). We have five children between the ages of 18 and 8. We live in a solar and wind-powered wooden house at 800 metres altitude, with fantastic views out over the Mediterranean to Ibiza and in the other direction towards ridges of high mountains. We are building up a smallholding, already consisting of goats, horses, a donkey, chickens, rabbits and extensive vegetable garden. We also have cherry and other fruit trees.
Area: ConnachtMyself and my three year old daughter are living in Galway city, 15 minutes walk to the city centre. We have a two bedroomed house in a quiet area called Shantalla. I study part time as an antenatal teacher and breastfeeding counselor and am at home with my daughter the rest of the time. Galway is a beautiful city and I love being so close to the centre and close to the sea at the same time. The house is nice and warm and the room available is a nice size with a double bed. There is a large back garden too. I am looking for a female to do childminding with my daughter while I study or work.
Area: British ColumbiaMy husband and I live in Vancouver and have had a cabin on 22 acres of beautiful, private land at the north arm of Shuswap Lake for 20 years. The property is off the grid with natural artesian spring water and hydro and solar power. It is a perfect place to enjoy nature and wildlife.... bears, deer, mouse, bald eagles, etc. with cross country skiing, snow shoeing, winter fishing and hiking available. We are now in the process of building three more wood cabins.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonWe are a family of three, Stephen, Ioana and Lydia, slowly building a sanctuary on the side of a mountain in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, between the villages of Bugarach and Bezu. The main house is now very comfortable, with six bedrooms, a movement studio and meditation room, and a wonderful orchard under development and a variety of outside spaces growing apace. We are looking for 2 or 3 people to come, work, and enjoy living here with us for a week at a time (no single workawayers please). We have our hands pretty full looking after our 20 month old daughter at the moment, however we are an architect and philosopher by training and inclination and can be guaranteed to engage all who come here in pretty direct conversation. if you appreciate some quiet in you life we will be happy to share it with you.
