  • Description


    Hi I am the owner manager of this unique vineyard retreat one hour west of Budapest. I am looking for seasonal help for the upcoming holiday season, ideally starting in April or May through to end of August or even September. We need an enthusiastic person or couple to help us around our vineyard estate which sleeps 22 in six cottages. The work would be garden, cleaning, running errands and be a general help with my team of six. We also have two pools which need cleaning and preparing every day.

    For the month of August 2015 we are looking for ideally a German speaking student (female) to join our dedicated team at our small vineyard estate with guest cottages - just an hour West of Budapest. Her tasks would be to help around the property, for example be our 'pool girl' we have two pools, which need to be ready each morning, cleaning, putting out cushions, towels, filling refreshment fridges and so on and cleared away in the early evening. Generally help where need around our boutique hotel estate and also spend 2 hours a day teaching our 10 year old German reading and conversation. If you like riding we also have a horse. We are English and speak some German, our place has fantastic Trip Advisor reviews and you would be part of our family. You would have time to explore the area and head to Budapest as well. It helps if she can drive too. Our guests are mainly from Budapest, both Hungarians and international guests visiting to experience our lovely place - they think they are in Italy. My passion is interior design, and this is reflected throughout the property.
