    UPDATE:
    -We are fully booked for this season, but are happy to receive requests for May-October 2020!
    -We are currently looking for couples (travel buddies included) only! :)

    Stay with us in our family hostel in the biggest wine region of Germany, help around the house and learn everything you ever wanted about wine making!

    We live in the beautiful Moselle valley surrounded by vineyards in a village called Ellenz. We are a young, bilingual couple with a hostel looking for someone to help around the house, do gardening and of course occasionally helping in our vineyards and cellar. Seba is 29 years old and from Chile and Eli is 27 and from Germany. Her parents, aunt and uncle and her grandma all live in the same street, so be prepared for the full Moselle-family experience. But don't worry! We are all easy-going people who like nothing better than sitting together and sharing a bottle of wine.
    We love to meet new people and would like to receive someone interested in cultural exchange and not only looking for a free place to sleep.
    The region is very rural with countless possibilities to hike, go biking or do watersports on the river. Be aware that the next big city is almost an hour away. Public transportation works well during the day by bus (leaves the village every hour) or train and we can provide you with a free ticket and a free bicycle for the time of your stay. Ideally, we would be looking for a couple to keep each other company from time to time and be more independent.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You´ll learn about the different steps of cutting the plants, harvesting the grapes and of course the magic that happens in the cellar. During the occasional winetasting you´ll be able to see (and try) the results of your work.

    At home we speak English, German and Spanish and we love to prepare typical foods from Germany and Chile and other places around the world. Anyone interested in languages and culture is going to have a great experience at our place!

We do our shopping weekly in the next village and can always take you by car.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The region is ideal for all kind of outdoor activities, but there are also things you can visit during rainy days. Check out the city of Cochem, Beilstein, Cochem castle or Eltz castle or the huge suspension bridge Geierley. In Germany´s oldest city Trier you´ll find roman ruins and the famous Porta Nigra.

    The workload won´t exceed 4 hours a day/ 5 days a week, but we will need you to work a full day from time to time in exchange for a day off. Generally, we are very open to offer a flexible work schedule for you to be able to travel around the region.
