  • Description


    We are a married couple around 55 years and we live in a beautiful place just outside Gudhjem on the island Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. We have three children and three grand children and we see them quite often and have family get-togethers at our place. Berit is a garden-entusiast and spend much time outside. She is hosting a garden programme on the local TV station and we produce a monthly garden programme from our place. Tonny is a photografer and producer and we have our own small TV production company that only counts the two of us. Tonny is a nature photographer and produces a monthly TV programme with the nature on Bornholm.

    We are looking for help in the vegetable patch and the flower garden, lawn mowing and other outdoor projects and we will also need help to build new fences for the sheeps that we are getting later this year. We are planning to build a shelter for the sheeps as well. We do prefer couples or friends traveling together.

  • Accommodation


    You will stay in a house for your self with one bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a living room. We expect you to do your own breakfast and lunch and then we will cook you a lovely meal every evening. We will of course buy you the food that you prefer to eat. We eat a lot of vegetables but we do also eat meat especially meat that is organic. Vegetarians are of course welcome here. The house is located very close to the town Gudhjem and it is easy to walk to the town in a few minutes where you also can take a swim in the Baltic Sea.

    What else ...

    We can pick you up when you arrive at the ferry. The island is a wonderful place to go sightseeing and you will experience an island with stunning nature, beaches, rocky places and fantastic sights from the medieval, and of course the round churches that Bornholm is so famous for. We do have bicycles that you can use.
