My name is Sophia (63). I live in the countryside, in a house mostly made of natural materials with a wonderful view of the surrounding hills.
I need help from Workawayers who have some experience of gardening (flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables) and/or are practical, strong, and good at D.I.Y. At the moment the most important task is in the garden (which produces most of our food).
In the house there are the normal domestic chores to be done e.g. preparing meals, washing up, washing, ironing and cleaning. But you don't need to be an expert in everything.
In our garden we work biodynamic.
Italiani che sappiano cucinare con prodotti semplici del mio orto sono i benvenuti. Conoscenza di tedesco o inglese.
Our area is beautiful and off the beaten track. There are lots of paths for going walking. In the evening we could chat, play board games or play music (if the Workawayers play an instrument; cello, and violin are available). You could perhaps also visit Linz (58km) and Passau (40 km): we might be able to take you there if we're going or you could go by public transport. We'd also like to take the Workawayers to festivals or events in the area.
PS: The Wifi is limited on 2 hours a day, because I'm hypersensitive on radiation.

Trips from our home can be either to the beautiful Donau (River Danube) loops (15 min by car - the view is amazing), the city of Passau with its 3 rivers is 40 km away, Linz about 60km. Nearby there is a golf course (3km) and the surrounding is ideal for hiking, biking or just to relax. Bikes are available, E-bikes can be rented in the next village (which makes life easier ;-)
