  • Description

    Description

    Elderly, very active couple - love meeting people and sharing thoughts/ideas - struggling with maintenance of old house and garden in green area with trees and small houses around.

    Close to Oslo fiord and local forest, with wild berries, mushrooms, marked trails, both along the coast line and in the woods. Nice for bicycling, running and outdoor life.

    We receive workawayers for a maximum period of two weeks during the months March-November. We do not receive workawayers during the period December-February.
