  • Description


    We are a young international (Polish/American, French/German) family living in a peaceful part of Freiburg in the Black Forest in Germany. Our house lies in a lovely valley - we overlook the mountains on all sides and have a large meadow directly behind the house. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Freiburg city center with the car - about 30 minutes with the bus.
    We are currently looking for help around the house - inside and out. Philippe spends his evenings after work in the garden, outside with the farm animals (we have 2 dogs, a cat, a pony, a goose, sheep, rabbits, and chickens) or on renovation projects. Mila has been home in the last few weeks their little Sheltie, Theo, taking care of their 2 month old baby, Oskar.
    Because the main help consists of spending time around/with the baby, we would rather have a female Workawayer.
    We would love to welcome you into our home!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Freiburg is a beautiful city with lots of activities for all times of the day or year. There are also lots of language courses here if you're looking to learn German (we can also help you practice!).

  • Help


    At the moment, we are mainly looking for help around the house and with the baby - helping with cleaning of the apartment, staying with the baby for an hour or two while Mila is out, helping prepare dinner in the evenings, and so on. Other times, we might need help at the old farmhouse where Philippe's aunt lives. Because she's older and unable to take care of everything, you might be asked to help clean the rooms or just to sit with the aunt and keep her company when her caretaker has time off. If you like working outside or have a hand at renovating, you're more than welcome to help Philippe with his projects as well (but don't have to!).
