    Description

    Hello, I'm Agnes and a self-employed musician and artist in an old original frisian house near the northsea. There is a garden area, where sheeps, chickens, cats and Siri the horse are living.

    My little musicschool is inside of the house.

    During the week I'm teaching the instruments (flute, piano, harp). Also I'm giving or hosting concerts in different styles (classic, folk, jazz, tango, etc.).

    Always when I have time I'm renovating the house or do gardening. But I'm really happy if I get help from people who have certain knowledge for different kind of work (inside and outside).

    The guest site has a heated construction trailer 4x 2.5m , a bio-toilet and cold water only. It is a wifi free zone!

    What else ...

    In an otherwise coffee drinking country, East Frisia is noted for its consumption of tea and its tea culture. Strong black tea is served whenever there are visitors to an East Frisian home or other gathering, as well as with breakfast, mid-afternoon, and mid-evening. Tea is sweetened with kluntjes, a rock candy sugar that melts slowly, allowing multiple cups to be sweetened. Heavy cream is also used to flavour the tea. The tea is generally served in traditional small cups, with little cookies during the week and cake during special occasions or on weekends as a special treat. Brown rum, mixed with kluntjes and left for several months, is also added to black tea in the winter. The tea is alleged to cure headaches, stomach problems, and stress, among many other ailments.
