    We have a dream! Our old barn (12m x 8m) shall get a big partylokation and meetingpoint for our friends all around the world, homekino and indoor biopool as well as a greenhouse. If you would like to help us to realize this vision, we would see forward to meet you.
    We are a Familie with two sons, two small dogs and one cat. Our sons are 18 and 13 years old and we live in a small village in one of the warmest areas of Germany. Erlenbach bei Kandel is it's name.
    I'm a nurse and my husband is the housekeeper and renovates the buildings.
    We would love to share experiences of ways of life. Before marriage I made lots of trips to India, United States and around Europe, but now my live has other priorities. But we are all interested and open to new experiences.

  • Help


    Our 13 years old son Fynn has to improve his English and my husband Uwe needs some help with removing our barn/house. Your mother tongue should be English. No German at all! Our son wouldnt speak English, if German is posible.
    The first reason for me to have You with us is to help Fynn to get used to English. Listening is the natural way of learning a foreign language. So, if You like Speaking and to undertake some funny things like Playing soccer or billiards, go for a swimm, card games and so on with our son, that would be great.
    The second reason to have You with us is our barnproject.
    And the third reason is last but not least to have a fun time.
