  • Description


    My live changed now. I have to get used to live alone without the big help of my husband. He passed away in the September. But I want to try to take once again helpers. I need somebody to ride my horses together with me on the forest tracks,I need somebody to bring firewood in. I live in a big wooden house which is heated by firewood.I have two horses,some hens,a dog and two cats.
    You will have your own room,bathroom you share with me,outside is a dry toilette and the saunahouse is too in the yard.To the next village are 5km and where I go shopping are 20km. The nearest city is Lappeenranta. It takes 60km.During the school time you can go by bus in the morning and come back in the afternoon

    We hope you can take care of horses and you know horseback riding You can ride the horses together with me on the forest tracks near by and further away.During the summer month I am used to ride the horses early in the morning.
    You like it to work in the vegetable garden and to stack firewood we need help in the beginning of the summer. For the April and May we would need someone who knows to use an ax to help Matti to make firewood. If you know to speak a little bit German it would be great.
