Area: Vesteraalen/LofotenOur Lighthouse is the only property on a small island in the Norwegian sea in the arctic part of Norway. We are about to build up the lighthouse as a special guest place with rooms for rent, a restaurant, a green garden with potato land and a herbal garden. Everything grown here is ecological. We are off grid and self sufficient with water, energy & boat transport. ****** The place is unique, and so are the people coming here to help out, gradually turning this place into a lighthouse with a big soul. Lighthouse owner, Elena, lives here all year long, so volunteers are welcome any season. Thanks to the Gulf Stream the climate is mild and relatively warm - taken into consideration it is beyond the polar circle!
Area: Rhone AlpesNeed some help starting OCTOBER 22nd!!!!! 2 to 3 weeks. Cleaning job. Please, CHECK OUR CALENDAR before applying. We will not answer if you apply for month where we are full. For January and February, we are only looking ofr someone who speak French (intermediate). We are 2 brothers and a sister running an hostel in the lovely city of Annecy. It's a small hostel, but we're looking for help all year long. Annecy is in the Alps, has one of the most beautiful lake of Europe and is the perfect place for outdoor lovers! The job in the hostel is not a hard working one, but need to be done really well because it is customer related. If you do the room cleaning, you'll working between 10am and 2pm. Working hours depend on you, the only thing is that the cleaning as to be done before 2pm, you manage your time! It's between 1 and 2 hours per day. You can take a day off. If you are at the reception (you need to speak French), you can work morning, afternoon or evening. And you have to clean the common area. (kitchen, living room, dining room) We already had few workawayers, and it was a really good experience, let's keep it this way! Feel free to contact us! Of course, if you have any extra skill that can be useful (carpentry, gardening, interior design, whatever!) dont forget to tell us about it! Contact us if you want to know more about the place!
Area: FloridaWe have a small apartment complex (7 units) . Indian Rocks Beach is a small beach community west of Tampa, Florida, in the middle of the state...about 1 1/2 hour west of Orlando. The atmosphere of this town is fairly easy going, not many high rises...friendly people. St. Petersburg is close - Dali museum, Fine Arts and History museum...Clearwater Beach is a bus ride away...There is a trolley that goes up and down the "barrier islands"-$2 each way. We live on the property that we manage which is on the inter coastal. We are empty nesters...although nieces and nephews (from 26-14) visit a lot. My husband and I have 3 poodles, Tzcha Tzcha, Lil Bit and Choo Oui that are a little spoiled :), but very friendly. We need some general household help and maintenance help with the properties...averaging 4-5 hours per day per workawayer!! We love to cook, eat healthy and enjoy fresh foods. We have traveled extensively, lived in Portugal, Spain and Greece, South Africa and now enjoy walking, hiking, yoga, swimming, cooking and eating... You will see what it is like to live in a smallish beach tourist town...the beaches are sugar white and the gulf of mexico always warm. We could also use some help with internet marketing, social media, and general marketing rental properties...
Area: CataloniaWe are an English couple who live permanently in an old farmhouse in a beautiful part of Catalonia, Spain. We would like help with developing our eco house and garden, particularly demonstration plots and veggie growing as we frequently have guests and like to spread the word of organic gardening and sustainable life styles. David works full time in international organic accreditation and Karen runs the farmhouse as a Bed and Breakfast in the Summer months. We offer practical experience in sustainable living. Currently looking for volunteers from September 2014. Sorry, no volunteers July and August.
Area: Coimbra and CenterWe bought an old Manor house and need a lot of help to do 'building', maintenance and other jobs, some more complicated than others and are looking for somebody with experience who might be interested in a working holiday in exchange for room and full board in a beautiful, and peaceful corner of Central Portugal, near the historical city of Tomar. The list of work seems endless, but the money unfortunately not. We had some major works done by professional builders, but due to high quotes, have to do more ourselves, just to get the work done. We are friendly, genuine guys (one German and South African) , both 46, married to each other for 15 years with bags of enthusiasm and hope to offer you something special in return for your efforts.
