  • Description

    Description

    We, Angelika(63) and Christof(60) are living in an old shist-house at the edge of a small village in the mountains.
    The house is completely restored with 5 rooms, a guestroom, kitchen and bathroom with solar warm water.
    There is a small chicken-house, some sheds, a workshop and a garden with greenhouse, fruit and olive trees and a big variety of plants. There is another small house with three more rooms that needs a lot of renovation to be done, inside and out.

    The work in the garden depends from the season: seeding, planting, weeding, harvesting and picking cherries, raspberries, grapes, kiwis, olives....
    In the house: making juices, jams and chutneys, cleaning etc.

    Christof is happy for each hand helping to do small repairs at the
    old building, putting insulation on one more roof, repairing fences,
    making firewood etc.
