    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can taste some Dutch and French culture and learn the languages we speak, and of course about all the activities you will do...

  • Help


    We are looking for people who can help us with gardening, maintenance, wood construction, wood chopping, painting and sometimes some help in the house. Certain skills would be very welcome... Especially in painting because we have some delicate painting to do, e.g. the small square windows you see on the main picture of our house. In spring and summer there will be painting to do and work in the garden, like weeding and harvesting and conservation of vegetables and fruit. Work with concrete and natural stones and other general maintenance.
