  • Description


    We are a married, active couple. We have an open mind, both, are untraditional and likes to laugh. We are Jan and Irene, age 65 and 72 years, healthy and fitt - maybe partly because we are living in the beautiful Island Bornholm. Our home is rather big, partly old but very charming and special, with interesting details and a wonderful big Garden. We moved from Copenhagen to Bornholm about 25 years agoe but we have only lived in this place for about two years now. We want to create a special place here for B&B and yoga/meditation-retreats.
    We are therapists in massage, yoga and coaching. Irene has yoga classes and changes the look of old and ugly furniture to look beautiful and up to date with paint. Also she paints pictures. Jan has worked as a social worker with young physically and mental challenged people and has worked several years with druggaddicted people.
    We have children and grandchildren living elsewhere in Denmark. We mostly see them in holidays.
    We are sharing our home with 2 sweet and very friendly cats, Gato and Yasmin.
    We eat vegetarian food - mostly organic - with eggs, milk products and occasional some fish. Sometimes we enjoy a glass of wine.

    We would like a visit and some help from one ore two mature people - could be age 50+ - who knows about to prepaire,planting and cultivating flowerbeds and treagarden without poisening the soil.

    If You want to visit us, You can stay in a nice room about 20 m2, separate from our flat with a comfortable double bed. We have also a little, but cosy singleroom.You must share kitchen and bathroom with us.

  • Help


    Through the season and mostly during spring, we want help with painting inside and building a terrace outside. The most important now at the time will be help to create and maintain a flowergarden and a organic treagarden. We paint with homemade chalk paint, which is a very beautiful and easy to work with.

    We have had great experiences with our workawayers last two seasons and we think one of the qualities from our side is that we are easy to get along with. Of course we expect You to have skills and that You will do Your best when You are living here, but we can always talk things together. Time to time You must help on Your own when we do our jobs, but we are sure that You are doing fine.

    Please bring some practical clothes and shoes/boots with You.
    We want 4-5 hours help from You 5 days a week and two days free (dont' has to be weekends) Sometimes we can cook together and regularly we will make tasty food for You - only vegetarian food with eggs and some milk products will be offered here, occasionally with some.
