We are a family of 6; two parents who love to travel and who love people, ánd 4 children with ages 5, 2x9 and 11. Our household and everything connected to it is the project we offer you :-) We live in Hoogeveen, it's in the North-East of The Netherlands, not too far from the German border. We are a nice family that may need some help with "projects" at home and that loves to have guests.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You will "infiltrate" in our family life. You will learn all about it, all kinds of cultural aspects. You can learn talking Dutch too! Our family lives in the same place, so you will meet them too, it's a social family :-)
First of all: We love to have guests from all around the world (we are longtime members of hosting sites). Next to that we have a 6 person household, that means we have 4 children. Because of our house full of lovely people we always need extra time besides the 24 hours we have hahaha... so many things to do. So, next to the social thing we like about this, we would like to have some help in our household... Cooking, cleaning, garden and house maintenance, talking/playing with our kids (we like them to learn from people out of other countries).
Dutch, English and a bit of German and French
We have a house in a small city, nearby lots of villages with lovely nature. The room at the attic will be yours.
When you have time off you can do all kinds of stuff. The nature is beautiful, especially when you ride a bike (perfect in flat country The Netherlands). From Hoogeveen it's easy to travel to any place in The Netherlands. Good roads, cycle paths, trains, busses, etc.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
