    In 2017/2018 we renovated our an old monastery from 1896 in the village where we live. It was a big project/task for us without real building experience but it is such a beautiful and peaceful place. The garden is enormous (5000m2).
    There is a lot of maintenance that needs to be done, but especially nice, creative ideas for the large garden are enormously welcome. In the garden there are small houses that can use a meta-morphosis. The nature is beautifull here and there are lots of things to discover.
    We are very hardworking people who like to share have company around us.
    We have 3 kids who of which the last one recently moved to live on their own. We have plenty of space for guest, we love to welcome you and we enjoy socializing. The food we make here is varied and I like to cook together or you can teach us some dishes from other country’s.
    Our daughter and son have travel experiences and have recommended workaway to us. we are super excited about it. we would love to receive guests and exchange experiences and knowledge.

    You will stay in a beautiful place in the Dutch countryside. Here you will have a truly Dutch experience because you will be surrounded with only locals.
    We want you to feel at home. There are several things that make this a great place to stay.
    Harry travels a lot for his work as a veterinarian so if you like you can go with him to farms. He travels throughout the country so he can drop you to a place you want to go.
    We have a jacuzzi where you can relax and we have a big garden.
    There are bikes to borrow and explore the area. There are shared meals.
    We love to play games. There is a possibility to make music around a fireplace outside.
    It is a perfect getaway if you are looking for some quietness and relaxition. There are nice villages nearby, and also cities to visit (Nijmegen, Eindhoven). The forrest ‘Staatsbossen’ is only 1 kilometer away from our home. It’s such a beautiful place for walks.
    We are curious what cultural exchange you bring us.
