  • Description


    Hello travellers - and welcome to Fyn, near Svendborg :-)

    Mid September we close for more Workaway this year. See you next year, maybe? Happy and safe travels to you all.


    We are a female, funny, friendly, curious, well travelled and easy going couple: Ninna (accountant + musician) and Bente (sculptor + designer) and our three darling cats. We are a kind of getting older ( 61 & 58) but still vibrant and young at heart :-)) We run an organic, vegetarian and very sustainable home.

    We're inviting preferably two travellers at a time for minimum 2 weeks, to our lovely old cottage in a lively village (Vester Skerninge) right between Svendborg and Faaborg.

    For 5 hours work a day we offer:

    - Mutual social and cultural exchange.
    - Great vegetarian, homemade food and a sustainable lifestyle / household
    - Good company (Bots of us are sometimes off for work, lots of times we're both working from home).
    - Flexibility, good fun, open minds.
    - Free wi-fi and access to computer.
    - Your own spacious, clean and fairly new campervan parked in driveway.
    - A great daybed in our newly decorated guestroom.
    - Quality bicycles (we have two).
    - 5 km. beautiful countryride to the sea.
    - 4 km. beautiful countryride to the forest.
    - 10 km. to Svendborg and Faaborg, 45 km. to Odense.
    - Hundreds of wonderful sceneries, old castles and places to visit in the area.
    - Busstop to Svendborg and Faaborg just 1 min. away.

    We prefer travellers who:

    - Are used to working with their hands, knowing about good work ethics.
    - Driven by great self motivation and independency.
    - Like flexibility, enjoy good moments and have open minds.
    - Show an outgoing, serious but also fun attitude :-)
    - Speak a fairly good English and can communicate openly.
    - It's important you like working outdoors, and most IMPORTANTLY: like to do paintwork, are dedicated with a sharp eye,
    patentience and have a steady hand!
    - Like gardening and outdoor work
    - Are willing to learn and listen.

    Projects this Summer:

    - The garden needs (constant) love, attention and caring. We'are always open to new creative ideas and projects :-)
    - The black fence around the garden is desperate for some new painting - DONE :-)
    - Most windows need white painting - parts of the old cottage need the orange freshen up - UPCOMING

    Looking forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to our paradise :-)

    Have a safe and fun journey whereever you're going.

    Ninna & Bente

    PS. We can of course pick you up / drop you off in our electric car. Smoking is ok outdoors. No drugs what so ever. All questions are welcome. Thanks.
