  • Description


    We live on a farm in a 3000- people village about 10 km from Wolfsburg, 100 km from hanover.
    Our family contains 5 people, me (58) and my husband (62) and our daughters Maren (28) and Elke (24) and our granny Helga (88). Additionelly there is always an apprentice around.
    All of us speak english (more or less haha), I do speak italian and my daughter Maren speaks spanish, but in any case I dont think that there will be any understanding-problems.
    Your work will actually depend from the time/season you will be with us. So it varifies from helping on the farm or in the house to keeping our grandma busy with games, or giving her a lift to the doctor.
    You will have your own room.
    From our village there is a bus-connection to Wolfsburg and by train you can reach Hanover, Berlin and Braunschweig easily. There are several pools (outdoor) in Wolfsburg and there is the Autostadt aswell (if you are interested in cars, especially Volkswagen ;))
    If you have any questions dont hesitate contacting us, it would be just great hearing from you!
