  • Description


    We are an open-minded young family with our little daughter who turns 2 yrs in Dec 19. We decided to enjoy our sunshine's first year to the maximum, so "daddy" took parental leave for a year since mommy is self-employed as a Yoga teacher and working superflexible and from home anyways. It was a unique experience with lots of travels, journeys and new people to meet along the way. Spring 2019 starts the real thing: Daddy is back at work and the girls are at home. So there is lots of stuff to do and help needed in and around the house. Rather than having a nanny, long-term au-pair or external childcare we would love to welcome workawayers from around the world to keep our horizons open and the language spoken diverse :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We both travelled a lot, as a couple and as a family, mostly in Middle Europe and to South East Asia. We love diversity so we did as couchsurfers, AirBnB Guests, with a Campervan, with a tent, as friends guests, to hotels or to home-stays. We both are fluent in English, Claudia can communicate in Italian, and we'd love to improve our very basic spanish skills. We can offer exchange and advice in Yoga practices, Sound baths (instruments, music), Nuad Thai Massage, Running, Trail Running, Hiking... We are nature lovers (well thats why we decided to live in this wonderful village) and are active outdoor people, so can show you the nicest places around. We eat vegetarian incl. fish, are non smokers and non-alcoholics.

  • Help


    *️️️ With our little daughter on the side it would be great to get help in housework (hoovering, mopping, shopping groceries, cooking, cleaning the kitchen)
    *️️️Our garden is about to undergo big changes which can need help (permacultural knowledge on how to plant, re-planting herbs etc., ...)
    *️️️We have an integrated guest apartment (with shared kitchen) which is finished but there is still work to do to make it even nicer (coloring, re-furnish the bathroom with selfmade wooden furniture or tiling, painting, ...)
    * With Claudia having a job that requires to do some phone calls ideally daily, it would be of great help to have some childcare during this time

    We can offer you our basement appartment (sleeping room, living room) with attached bathroom, and got shared kitchen, which is nice, since we can have food/meals anyways together. Either we cook and you join us, or you cook for all of us as a help.
