    In general, I am looking for some help with the household, the outdoor area and the garden. It is our private home but with a big garden areal (and I rent out guest rooms in parts of the house).

    For 2023, I am now looking for somebody for a few weeks in March, I want to do/need to do some painting and flooring, and need helping hands to move furniture around, empty cupboards, cook and clean - no knowledge necessary.

    I am also looking for somebody for a few weeks in spring and early summer (May/June), mostly gardening and outdoor work.

    We have a big garden areal that needs to be worked in, there is always garden work from April throughout September, including weeding, cutting trees, cutting grass, planting, fencing.
    There are also quite a few things that always need maintenance, cleaning and painting.
    I also have several projects I'd like to work on, mostly light carpenter's work and turfing the roof of a small garden house.
    From mid-June til end of August, there is no availability because I am renting out the guest rooms to paying guests during this time.

    Besides, help with daily household chores, house cleaning and cooking is always appreciated. With our family, you will have the opportunity to stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world and be a member of our family. We do have a dog, three rabbits and horses.

    The kids are really good with languages, they are raised bilingual (Icelandic - German), and the even speak English.
