  • Description

    Description

    We're a lakeside Lodge, rated 5 stars by the biggest online guest-rating site, hosting helpers to help in the garden, general maintenance to buildings, front of house, watersports etc etc. The Lodge is totally eco-friendly, running 90% off solar power both for electricity production and hot water. We re-cycle all our water as well as rubbish etc.
    Kitchen help, bar, front-of-house, good with animals, (dogs, cat, parrot, children, guests etc), preferably 20's to 30's, out-going without being OTT, preferably with a working brain. Anyone out there?
    Please read our profile and reviews.
    All available positions are now filled up until the end of June. If you're interested in joining us for the four months of July, August, September and October please get in contact.

    If you're interested in either learning how to run a Lodge such as ours or are interested in learning how to run a sustainable enterprise, and are willing to be a committed member of our team we can teach you how we do it. This is definitely NOT a few hours every day! No clock watchers please ....

    We'd like applicants to be motivated, have a positive attitude, sense of responsibility and sense of humour. General all-rounders are what's needed ... You must be able to contribute as part of a team or on your own. If you're not prepared for this please don't waste your time by applying for a position here. Also please note that we are fairly isolated - at least by European standards; if you need a disco on your doorstep this definitely isn't the place for you, but you do have free wifi if you bring your own computer/iPad etc. Days and hours are flexible within reason. Helpers get full use of our facilities on time off, including sauna, canoes, sailing dinghy etc.

    Age is unimportant as long as you're fit, willing and ideally you'll have a driving license, be kitchen savvy, and enjoy the company of others around a dinner table without being an alcoholic.
    Send us an email or give us a ring and speak to either Daniela or Frank.

    Please note that our nearest village is about 3 miles away. The local population consists primarily of self-sufficient small-holdings and farmers. Beaches are about an hour's journey by car, but the lake is on your doorstep.
    The lake itself is massive .... 36 kms long and 242 around, it's deep and holds 480 million cubic meters of water. It's incredibly clean - treading water at night you can see your toes in the moonlight - and warm too; during the summer the temperature's never far off 28ºC/82ºF. Ideal for swimming and boating - fishing too as the lake holds both Wide-mouthed Bass and Carp.
