  • Beschreibung


    We're not just your average family; we're the cool crew of Emma, Simon, two kids (12 and 10), and even a groovy grandma! Our digs? A house nestled in the middle of Graz, nevertheless surrounded by the serenity of a small forest and a garden that's basically our own little slice of paradise.
    But there is more, Luigi the cat, Lilly the dog and 6 chickens live with us.

    We prefer to accommodate people traveling as a couple. However, single travelers or families with a maximum of two children are also welcome.

    LATEST Specials:
    +++We are currently looking for talented workawayers to do simple carpentry work to finish our chicken coop (most work is already done by our last workaway - Florimond: Thanks!). You could also build a simple outdoor shelf. If you are interested, you could also build an outdoor couch out of Euro pallets, including sewing the cushions.+++

    We expect you to help 4-5 hours a day, five days a week. Helping hours can also be managed flexibly (preferably in coordination with Simon and Emma's working hours). Depending on your skills you can do special tasks, as written above, or you do gardening, cleaning, maintenance in or around the house. It would be great if you can handle and finish one or the other project independently, but in coordination and of course if necessary in cooperation with Simon.

    Most of the time you can eat with us or with granny, sometimes we cook together or you have to cook yourself. In any case, you will find enough things in the fridge.

    We hope all our workawayers can take a moment to go through the workaway ID verification process. This simple step helps us maintain a trusted and transparent space for everyone. Thanks so much for understanding :).

    Since we have children, you should have no problem with the fact that sometimes it will be noisy and sometimes chaotic, but you will find a creative family life.

    We want to live a lifestyle combining work in the office and at home, creating a beautiful home in connection with nature, gardening and small farming. We want to improve our personality through cultural exchange and diversity. We want to see local conditions with different eyes through new ideas from outside, which opens the possibility of creating a better quality of life. We believe that we are all turning the wheel of time and that only together we can make the future better.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are a family with roots in Austria, Slovenia and Italy. Of course we live and love to share traditions from this heritage. Besides German we speak fluent English, Emma speaks Italian and French, grandmother speaks Slovenian. We are open-minded and love the exchange with other ideas and cultures.
    Emma has many language skills, Simon has a lot of experience in fixing things, upcycling, 3D printing and DIY projects. Gardening experience is mediocre, but slowly getting better :).

  • Unterkunft


    Our house was build in 1984. You will have a nice guest room with 4 beds and bathroom. Since we have only one guest room, we can only host workers who belong together. You will have a small kitchen, but of course we can cook and eat together in our bigger kitchen. Right next to our house begins the "Grazer Bergland", which opens the possibility of hiking, walking and cycling. The center of Graz can be reached by tram in 15 minutes. It takes 35 minutes to reach the main train station.

    Graz is the capital of the Austrian province of Styria and the second largest city in Austria after Vienna (which is 2,5 hours away by train). Graz is known as a university city and has four colleges and four universities. Together, the city is home to more than 60,000 students. Its historic center (Altstadt) is one of the best preserved city centers in Central Europe.
    Numerous cultural events take place here.
