We are a family-like group of four to five living in a beautiful, big place. In addition we have up to three people living in and around the house with us. There are two "tiny houses" and one cabin on our ground. The place is located peacefully 300 yards off the village right at the edge of the woods, surrounded by 5500m2 of property ground. We (try to) grow vegetables, do keep hens and cats while always having some minor or major to build, renovate or create in the house and outside. There are two children: Jette, five, and Enno, three, the younger one is what you call a "slow developer" and has some lovely nurses caring for him.
We like to make our home feel like being on holiday. But in our rare "free time" we love to experience and explore nature, play with the kids, excercise, are creative or renovate/build something in and around the house. The woods are vast and you can walk for hours. We love to have people around and friends on visit. So here's always something going on. However, as we both work during school-weeks there might be some mornings where it is very quiet and peaceful around here.

Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten
Marieke is actually a wilderness educator at heart but she earns money being an English and biology teacher. She has also worked as a baker and pastry cook for some time. Anders knows a lot of our local plants and mushrooms, but he could also teach you how to play the piano. We are both self-trained in several DIY and arty fields like sewing or painting, we have equipment for pottery, enamel, a library and of course a big and well-equipped workshop.

For autumn we would very much appreciate your help outside in the garden and on the ground to make things winter-proof etc.

I would like to advance my French and Spanish, I am a professional English teacher and have experience in teaching German as a second lanuguage.
In the main house we have a generous guest room with a double bed, a big sofa and a desk. Next to it there is a simple but private bathroom and also a sauna. The room is on the ground floor, while all other shared rooms are above, so it’s very private if you want it to be. The large kitchen for everyone is up the stairs on the same floor as the living room and the library. There is a small garden cabin with a lovely alcove to sleep in and a veranda in the garden. At least one of the tiny houses is free for your stay at the moment.
We receive our groceries mainly from a local organic farm delivery and like to cook freshly, if time allows. We don't buy or eat meat! We take turns in preparing meals and clearing the kitchen afterwards and love to have a big table full of hungry people.
Was noch ...
We both work (homeoffice as well as real office) and the children are in childcare during the week. Public transport to Kassel exists, but it is rare and slow. We have bikes, pedelecs and cars for closer and further exploration and for your use as well. Kassel offers some cultural attraction as does Melsungen a smaller town nearby offering ice cream parlors and a weekly market. Groceries are available some kilometers away.

Thank you for all the great time with you, your family and all people around. It was my pleasure to help you with some tasks around your house and I really enjoyed to do it. The place where you live is beautiful, full of love and peace and the "king size" room which I had was amazing.
We had a great chat and fun
Nous n’avons pas eu l’impression de travailler beaucoup, c’était un plaisir de s’occuper des enfants et de participer à la vie de la maison et du
