Area: Dordogne.We are a family of three with many animals and mature walnut trees that share our 7 acre piece of land in the middle of a quiet hamlet of the Dordogne. We have a holiday rentals business that operates all year round, mainly in the summer, on a piece of land that we call a nature reserve. I work in my studio as an artist in the out of season months. Our property includes 2 houses and 2 barns, one of which is Gramma's who is an infrequent visitor. We have one child of twelve years who is fluent in french, we speak french but we are in no way fluent. We have a pond where our chickens dwell and further afield we have three dogs. Our land comprises of many trees, bramble bushes another small pond and some surviving grape vines that dot about randomly. We are converting it to a wooded area that we will harvest for winter heating in the future. There are many little pathways that we have carved out through the jungle of bushes. The bushes provide habitation for animals including hedgehogs, snakes, lizards, many birds, shrews and goodness knows what else! We love it. We want to promote the nature reserve side to our business.

Area: ØstfoldWe are a family of five in our late thirties. We have a teenager daughter, and two younger kids in kindergarten. We consider ourselves outgoing, hospitable and friendly. Oh, and let's not forget the two dogs and the cat! If allergies is an issue be assured that the animals are never allowed in the guest house. The mother has pelvic pain after pregnancy and is not able to work, or participate as much in the day to day work around the house. To increase life quality, reduce workload, and to meet new people workaway was considered a creative solution. Our place is on the west side of Fredrikstad with a three minute walk to the bus stop, 30 (probably less) minutes walk to the closest beach and 1 minute walk to the forest with many miles of hiking paths. Oslo with all its attractions, nightlife, people and activities are just an hour by train away. We're happy to pick you up at the Rygge airport or at Fredrikstad bus station. We can even at the bus stop down the road if you for some reason is traveling heavy. I'm Kent and I'm 35 and I work with electronics. Most of the time is spent fixing the house and attending the recurring tasks around the house. We have soon reached a plateau where we just have to service the house and property, not build from scratch. I also do some running on the paths in the forest behind the house. Want to join in? I would also like to learn languages, and in particular Hungarian.. My Significant other is Ellen and she's 39. She loves the garden and spends time there according to what the body allows. She also has an interest in design, carpenting, or anything crafts related. She has a workshop with industrial sewing machines, but it hasn't been used as much as she would like the last few years. The teenager is going to school at a design and craft,and from this autumn she will specialize in textiles. The middle child is in her last year in kindergarten and will attend the school this autumn. The youngest Wil transfer from the young kids group to the big kids group. He is excited about the change, but will miss his older sister for sure. We can be flexible regarding the work hours.if you want to go for a day to Oslo we will try to find an agreement that both parties can agree upon. The beauty of the norwegian archipelago is unrivaled and with your base here in Fredrikstad you can have a taste of all the tings offered. Fredrikstad is a typical summer city coming to life in early spring. Try our hospitality. I firmly believe you will have a positive experience!
