  • Description


    We are a family of six (five human beings and our little old dog:) very open minded and easygoing people, living heavenly idyllic in the middle of nowhere on the peninsula Eiderstedt, very close to the North Sea (6 km to the next beach access and 20 km to the famous St.Peter-Ording beach)
    So it's a great combination between contemplation and fun, a dream if you like nature, beach life and culture:)
    Our home is a historic 'Haubarg' from the 18th century with very old roots in the 14th century.
