Area: CataloniaWe are a couple, Silvia and Magno, middle-aged with two children 16 and 9 years old, Irina and Magno. We live in a big house in the village of Celrà, near Girona (100 km from Barcelona), 20km from the Costa Brava. The area is ideal for mountain lovers and also for the beach. Silvia works as a clerk in a hospital and Magno as a veterinarian. We like outdoor activities (sports, walking), animals (we have a dog and a cat) and quiet family life. We would like our children to improve their English and know people from other countries and cultures. Somos una pareja, Silvia y Magno, de mediana edad con dos niños de 16 y 9 años de edad, Irina y Magno. Vivimos en una casa grande en el pueblo de Celrà, muy cerca de Girona (a 100 km de Barcelona), a 20km de la Costa Brava. La zona es ideal para los amantes de la montaña y también de la playa. Silvia trabaja como administrativa en un hospital y Magno como veterinario. Nos gustan las actividades al aire libre (deportes, caminar), los animales (tenemos un perro y un gato) y la vida tranquila en familia. Nos gustaría que nuestros hijos mejoraran su inglés y conocieran personas de otros paises y culturas.
Area: MendozaWe're an Italian/US couple who have traveled much and now enjoy having a well established hostel. During the winter season there is space for people who would like to help out with the olive and fruit trees and with the other many farm and hostel jobs. We're situated on a main highway road within a good sized town that has everything right nearby - food, and transport to the main town of San Rafael, the beautiful Valle Grande, Bodegas and everything that's of interest in this area. From April till November there are less people in the hostel so we have room to invite volunteers. We usually work in the mornings so the rest of the day and weekends are free for you to go around. 4 hours a day - 5 days a week is the norm. You can have your own private room and food is included. Of course we have WiFi internet, TV, DVDs and books, bicycles, laundry and all the things that a big hostel has. Dinners together are great times to share all of life's experiences, different recipes and chat in many languages. We also like to learn other languages. On the weekends we host family fiestas, birthdays, quinceaneras, weddings, anniversaries, etc because we also have a Salon de Fiesta which is a very interesting experience to see how Argentinians do their fiestas, music, dance and food. PS. (as of April 7th 2014)...We also want to make it known that in the winter from April through November we have a lot of Christian activities here as we ourselves are Christians and have been active for many years. That has been a surprise to some of the volunteers coming here and so we feel we should let that be known ahead of time. But if that's something you're especially interested in then please let us know. We get literally hundreds of requests from volunteers wanting to come here and unfortunately we can't take them all even though we would like to. We believe it when Jesus said: "to go into all the world and preach the Gospel of His Love to every person and train disciples in the way of his love and service". So that's something we do as well during the winter besides all the work.
