Hallo,i am Ietje,born in Holland but living on an old farmhouse in Masuren ,north-east Poland,it is situated on 18 ha witch are used for my horses and to make hay for them and my pigs.
There are chickens ,cats and my nice friendly dog Kulka who wants to play whole day
.My pigs are also pets and not for eating.After my early retirement( ,i worked 40 years in healthcare as manager)finally i could go to this house, witch i already own for twenty years.
Healthy air ,beautifull nature ,nice pets,nearest small towns are around 15 km,away.I have 4 rooms for bed and breakfast and an appartment,during season having guests from all over the world,i speak,dutch ,german,englisch and learning polish.
Maybe you think i am old,but i am energetic and modern thinking person,travelled a lot .
Winter time is little boaring,i started to renovate the second part of the house witch was not mine.Thanks to local workers and the help of workawayers it is almost finished The finishing touch and outsite cleaning still must be done.What i need is a helping hand with animals and little things,garden,wood cutting,make decoration or furniture,helping cleaning rooms and assist me making breakfasts, whatever there is to do.(and whatever you like to do)I have local workers too.Summer is super this year,lake nearby.Winter can be hard and snowing. I like to cook,bake,read books and have nice conversations.wifi is available.If you like quiet countrysite life meet locals and learn something about culture,it is a good place to be.There is a nice fireplace where you can observe the stars and enjoy real silence.Little room available(it is my sons,but he lives in Holland) smoking no problem,but not to much drinking ,i prefer guests who stay at least for one week.
