  • Description


    We are a family of six persons - Tommy (49), Sonja (40), Jonathan (12), Janis (11) Felian (7) and Runa(6) and our cat Petz(about 2years). There are also six Guinea Pigs and chicken who are living in our garden.
    Three years ago we moved from Vienna to Gansbach which is a very small village in the countryside. We have a big garden together with our neighbours and a lot of projects we want to do. So we can always need a helping hand. In winter there is nothing to do in the garden but as our children are not in school, they are homeschoolers, it would be wonderful if they could have more contact persons. And if you like to cook it would be also great!
    Our neighbours have two children and they are also not in school - we live like in a small community - and our dream is to have a lot of guests during the year who spend time with us, doing things together and let energy flow...
    We don't want to count the hours of your help - we are really interested in cultural exchange and that you are during the time you live with us be part of our family. You will have your own room and you can also have a walk in the wood which is next door or go by bus to the next city.
    If you want to give us your time ask whatever you want. We are looking forward to welcoming you!

    We live in a very small village - there is only one supermarket and a bakery. But you can go to the next big city or to Vienna by bus. Tommy goes to Vienna nearly every day - so you can go with him too.
