    *️ ️ At the moment we can only accept someone who can speak some German (basic german).
    *️ ️ If you are interested in staying longer in one place / family, feel free to contact us!

    We are six with three generations on an old farm in Wendland. Life here is quiet and close to nature. There are two vegetable gardens and we are trying to supply ourselves. The children are 9 and 12 years old. Lüchow is accessible by bicycle. Sometimes our car is free and can be used. The work here is mainly in the household and in the vegetable garden, occasionally the children must be cared for. In the house and on the farm there are still many renovations (and constantly new projects) in which we look forward to help - that may be synonymous with manual assistance. We even get our firewood and do a lot of manual work ourselves. If you want to learn something or even teach something yourself - great :-)

    We are untroubled, relaxed and open-minded. We love nature, music, books and healthy food.

    Are you friendly and open-minded? Are you good with kids?
    We would be pleased to welcome you and let you be part of our family life.
    And we would be happy to have some help in the house, yard and with the kids.

    The estate is quite ample, our house is nearly 200 years old but warm and comfortable.
    You will get your own room and own bathroom.

    If you like, you could help us improve our english. And if you want to improve your german: in unserer Region wird sehr gutes, klares Deutsch gesprochen! Come and help - and learn german or improve your knowledge. We will be pleased to help you!

    We are looking forward to your application, if you want to stay at least 4 weeks - gladly longer!
    You should already speak a little German.

    We have two Little dogs and a few hens.

    Du solltest unbedingt ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen.

    You should
    -be sensitive and adaptable, able to understand the needs of a family
    -have a good rapport with children
    -be able to get up early in the morning
    -independently identify and complete tasks

    And it would be good if you're happy too, if there are no special activities.
    We hope that you spend most of your day with us.
    In addition, you should be able to give us your ideas and wishes, so that we can enter into it.

    There are different tasks and there is always something to do. Play with the kids, hang the clothes, clean the kitchen, prepare lunch (or prepare lunch together with us) fetch firewood from the barn, vacuum the house, wipe the entrance hall, and so on.
    In spring and summer you can also help in the garden, we grow our own fruits and vegetables.

    If you are craftsman you also could help us to demolish an extension. We reconstructed our house in 2013 but there are almost many tasks... :-)

    You also could bring some new "inspiration" to our kitchen.
    We love healthy cooking. One of us is vegetarian and we also love vegan cooking.

    Everyone contributes what he or she is able to do - but primary we are looking forward to have an exciting time together.

    There are two guestrooms in the house (each one has a bathroom with sink, shower, toilet).
    The rooms have windows and are light, warm and at ground level. There is no TV or phone in the guestrooms.

    If you like music, you can use the grand piano, the drum kit or the cajon boxes.
    We love music.
    Bring your instruments, if it´s possible!!

    We have some bicycles that can be used for a ride to the next town for shopping or sightseeing.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our region is a quite rural area!!
    But its a beautiful region and the people are very friendly and open-minded.

    The “wendland” is quite famous for its peculiarity. Many people (artist, artisans, craftspeople, families with alternative lifestyle) moved here to support the anti-nuclear-movement since the 1980´s. We think it´s a very interesting area with many cultural activities and a keen sense of community. To get an impression check out the “kulturelle-landpartie” or “republik-freies-wendland” in the net…

    Landscape is quite wild and partial intact. Although agricultural shaped...
    Next town (Lüchow) is about 9 km. We go there nearly each day (job, music school, swimming, ...)
