  • Description


    We are Jacco and Fleur (35 and 31 years old) and have a 3 month old twin!

    We moved 1.5 year ago from the city centre of Amsterdam to the countryside to enjoy the outside life and gardening (we try to eat as much as possible from the garden). First we started rebuilding the house and guesthouse (all completed) and now it is time for the garden and some outside projects. But with the twin we lack some time to start with the garden (except the vetagable garden is in place)

    Do you love gardening? Or are you even able to make a design for a garden? We can defenitly make use of your help and are happy to welcome you!

    Furthermore we have some small projects to do for carpenters or handy man/women, such as making a hen house, veranda etc

    And of course there is always general maintance work to do, such as painting

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a real dutch family, we can learn you to prepare some dutch meals hopefully during summer even with dutch vegetables from our own garden.

    But we also love food from other countries we visit!

    We live close by the cities Leiden, Amsterdam and Haarlem. And in the middle of the famous flowerfield (tulips) area and biking distance from the beach (half an hour by bike).

    Furthermore we lived in Amsterdam for years so we can share the local tips for Amsterdam
