  • Description


    We are a family of six (mum and dad, Hannah 14, Erik 13, Leah 11 and Felix 3, our cat Johnny and the dog Lucy) who live in the southern German countryside. We mostly live off our own land and chicken and set up an orchard with 300 rare fruit trees. We are a very open minded german family and are fluent in English, French and partly in Spanish.
    Harvest will start! We look for help from mid April onwards!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you would like to learn German fast and have a lot of practise opportunity, this is the place to be! We will book you for German classes 3 times a week to add some theory to your language practice.
    We are a very active family. Dad has his own business, works long hours and often stays at a hotel. Mom cares for the kids, works 1,5 days a week and does a lot of garden work and minds the orchards, chicken, rabits, the cat and the dog. The older three kids attend school until 5 pm, whereas Felix attends kindergarden until lunch time. We do not speak dialect. We try to live very healthy (we do a lot of sports and are nearly vegetarians). We try not to harm the environment (we cook freshly every day and bake our own bread and eat what we grow ourselves if possible).
    If someone loves nature and the countryside but still wants to be in the big cities in little time she will be happy in our family. You can learn a lot about living off your own land like gardening and cooking.

  • Help


    We are a a very energetic family and need help caring for little Felix. He is full of energy and we look for someone loving and caring but also fun, creative but also consequent.
    You should really enjoy spending your time with a young little boy, love to run around and jump with him outdoors, always find new creative games to play but also feel when it's time for a big cuddle or singing and reading time.
    You should like to be a sister-friend for Hannah, Leah and Erik and a helper and good friend for mom and dad.
    Apart from this we would appreciate some help with household chores. Would be great if you walk our dog, she needs 8 km a day!
    You can also help in our vast garden and in the orchard: there is always weeding to be done and from May onwards picking and preserving of all these fruit and berries!

  • Accommodation


    We live in a big house where each child has his or her own room, with a huge garden. As Felix still sleeps with his parents his room is vacant (approx. 13 qm). The bathroom has to be shared with the older children. Please understand that we can only accomodate a female guest, as you will stay with our girls on one separate floor.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will be in reach of many South-West German cultural and natural sites like Heidelberg, Schwarzwald, Pfalz, Speyer, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, etc. but still enjoy the quiet countryside (our area is called the german Tuscany).
    We look for someone absolutely honest and funny and full of energy (very important!) who loves to join our family and be a part of it. Please no smoker. We do not offer additional payment.
