  • Description


    we are a young family (baby boy felix, mom silvi, dad lukas, dog richi & cat minki). after living and working, for several years, in vienna and linz, we decided to look for a place with more space and a lot of nature surrounding it. we found that in the western region of austria in the middle of beautiful mountains. we arrived around two years ago, renovated the living house and built a porcelain workshop in the barn. we offer courses around porcelain and plaster molding. therefor we’re looking for people taking care of our lovely youngster felix and our two hairy ones. Silvi is a master in porcelain and lukas loves to cook and host people. our concept for the whole place is spend time in a scenic, natural and quite area, work with the hands and eat good good food.

    spend time with a cool young boy in a scenic alpine landscape, live in an old woodhouse, go hiking with richi the cretan dog, learn things around the veggie garden or the apple/pear/cherry/plum trees and of course you can work with porcelain too.

    the next courses are starting in april 2021 and continue until september/oktober, depending on the temperature because the barn isn’t insulated or heated. for this period we would be happy to host child friendly people to be with us and make the time for us a less stressful. most courses happen to be on the weekends. this means that your days off will be during the week. the job is easy. spend time with felix. -read books. -sing. -dig. -play. -build. -be in the nature. -learn him things… in summer he will be one&ahalf.

    the place is a bit off the main roads but connected with public transport (15min walk). it is on 1000 meters sea level and one of the sunniest places in the bigger region. we try to go shopping to the city once a week by car.
