    with an old big roof terrace(very old though and need some work), an old garden with fruit trees wich also needs work done and lot of famous beautiful hiking trails and 3 amazing lakes near the house, very good public transportations and more.
    Also we have a whole house with garden next door, to use as atelier, workshop-studio and guest rooms, very simple but with charme :)

    you can live for free there and there ist basic food like Flour, Herbs and Pasta, but have to provide your own fresh food.
    everything adding to the basic you can buy in the nearby food grocery stores or farmers market.

    only about 2-4 max. hours work a day is required. taking care of the cat when i am away sending me a daily update and if all goes well the first 2 weeks, then only twice a week an update will be required.
    feed the cat, snuggle and play, basic cleaning and small gardening tasks.

    you are always welcome to paint and do something creative on the white walls in the bathroom or other place on request :)

    General Help:
    - i need someone that can work with video! know how to cut video and can make video reel out of different formats.
    - also need someone that can sew! clothes need to be fixed, new stuff has to be sewed and also help with own design for our dance company.
    - help needed also for building the website
    - and i need someone that is taking care of my cat while i am traveling for my job.
