If you want a holiday with a difference - or, indeed, a holiday that makes a difference - have you considered a farmstay? The experience of staying on a real working farm gives you an insight into a different way of life, a way of life which you are helping to maintain, and often there are opportunities to get your hands dirty and help out. WWOOF, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms offers the chance to help out on a huge range organic farms in the UK, Europe, doing your bit for the environment, enjoying an authentic agricultural experience and eating freshly grown food. There are of course plenty of other farmstay possibilities - some of which offer impressive levels of comfort and even luxury, and Anouk van den Eijnde picks out some of Europe's best farmstays on our blog.

Check out a fantastic selection of green farmstays (reachable by train and ferry) across Europe, from a Cornwall getaway for young families to lovely Tuscan farmhouses and yoga, activities and fine food in South West France.
