    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live on a remote island, generate our own power and live in a very beautiful place. We mainly attract people who want to embrace nature and get away from the big cities for a while. Most people who are here enjoy their stay and go away with new experiences. It is a friendly Island where it is easy to hitch around if you do not have a car.

  • Help


    We have an big rambling garden so there is always gardening to do. Collecting firewood, feeding chickens, helping out on building projects. At the moment we are also looking for help at the local sports club. If you are a chef or have worked in the fast food industry we may have some paid work for you.
