  • Description


    We´re a family with 2 children (4y, 2y) living in a four-sided courtyard with 3000 sqm. We have 3 sheeps, 2 guinea pigs and one cat, a vegetable garden and al lot of space to create. We´re at the beginning to start a culture society, to open our place for publicity. We want to build a chicken and duck house, use rain water, renovate rooms, beautify our house and garden, built a glasshouse and so on. We only work with natural materials like wood, clay and lime.
    I´m a Gestalt therapist and my husband a Software engineer and between our project is our courtyard and our children.

    What else ...

    Our "farm" stands on the outskirts of Altenburg. It is a beautiful old town, the town center is just 10minutes by bicycle (we can borrow you one) . You can reach Leipzig in just 30 minutes by train. There are also some nice lakes around.
    Because we´ve got two little children and a lot to do in and around the house and also work some days, we can´t spend all the day with you, but we want to make you feel at home. We´re curious to meet people from all over the world or just around the corner.
