Area: Lower SaxonyHello, we are a musican family (Gesine and Axel with Elisabeth,19) which enjoys living in a rural, very small village. The farm is surrounded by wide fields and grassland. We have got 5 ponies and 3 cats, barns, a trampoline and 3 ha of land. Our whole family are 19 persons (our adult children with their partners and their kids) Some of them practice gliding in summer each weekend on a small airport nearby. We bake organic bread, love music and sing in a choir. The next small town is 1 km away. It has got about 1000 inhabitants, a riding-school, a pool, a few shops and a church with a nice pipe-organ. The surrounding country is flat except for a few hills - great for biking. Spring starts in April and winter about 17th of october. If you love to work outside, this is a nice place to live during "summer period".
