Hi! We are Angelika, 59 and her uncle Willi, 92 who live here constantly, Angelika's boyfriend Frank who lives here at the weekends and Angelika's daughters Nancy, 36 and her partner Sebastian with baby Jakob as well as Susan and her son Carlos, 7 who live here on and off. We live in the village of Drachhausen and have a 2000 m2 property and are needing help because it is more work then we can handle taking care of the garden, household and the animals.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
See rural German family life :), learn how to speak German - Angelika, Willi and Frank don't speak any English. (Susan will organise the stay - but does not live there permanently.)
Angelika and Frank are very social people. If you get on well they will take you to village parties etc.
according to your ability and preferences you may be asked to do the following

gardening: picking out weeds, watering the garden, build a fence, mow the lawn, build high garden beds, cutting and stacking wood
We can offer accomodation in a trailer in the garden or in a room in our former ice-cream shop, with own kitchen and toilet. You have to use our family shower. In 2019 there should be an independent shower.
Our garden is huge - you can chill under plum, apple, cherry and pear trees sit at the pond - have a bbq, read on deck chairs - walk the dogs - go for a run..
