We are a friendly family of four. That includes our twins who are 8 years old (a girl and a boy) and Tilo, my husband, and me, Nicole. And not to forget - our cat. Our children are very cheerful and inquisitive although our daughter is disabled.
We are living a small house with a beautiful garden and a lovely view across the land and looking for an extra pair of hands, someone to help in the home and garden.
The area where we are living:
We live in a quiet village called Lykershausen, set in the world famous UNESCO world heritage site with beautiful castles and a stone's throw from the river Rhine. This is the ideal situation for nature lovers and those who like a slower pace.
Shops, bars and restaurants can all be found around 5km from us, and the next city, Koblenz, is 20km away. Koblenz is an interesting and historical city with a lovely old quarter, not to mention lively bars and nightlife.
What to expect:
Our house is just a minute's walk from the "Rheinsteig" a famous hiking trail, from which you can explore the forrest and take in gorgeous rambling views of the Rhine. A beautiful and very idyllic place, with perfect opportunities for hiking and biking. We have a bicycle which you are free to use during your stay.
You should be the kind of person who enjoys spending time outdoors and is able to work independently sometimes. As a general rule, volunteers are welcome to stay for approx. one month. We would really prefer volunteers which are able to speak the German language reasonably understandable. Otherwise it is too difficult for our children ;-)
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
Visiting our family means to be involved in our daily lives. This would be really fantastic for language learners, the opportunity to speak and practice with native speakers every day and immerse yourself in the language.
For us we see workaway as an opportunity to get to know all kinds of different people, we are open minded and would love hear stories from your travels.
We are looking for someone to help in our garden and house and having fun with our children.
