    Hi, nice to meet you!

    Life is a journey, please allow me to tell you a bit about ours; we are one family, 8, 10 y.o. plus mum and dad.

    Home is what must be the smallest town in the world with an hourly train that connects you to Salzburg Austria in an hour or to Munich in two.  A few years ago we bought "that old farm" and moved to sunny upper Austria after 20 years in SoCal/USA.

    You are what you eat, in this house the adults eat mostly vegetarian or vegan, while the kids love hamburgers with lots of ketchup. Quite the contrast right, yes, we are not taking this too seriously, but we sure rather not exploit animals or anything for that matter.

    We speak mostly German, but with you here we switch to English :-).

    Thank you for reading.

  • Accommodation


    We have two options, one is on the ground floor in our family home. You make a very spacious room with direct access to the yard your own and have access to a fully equipped bathroom/shower in the laundry room.

    The second option is to stay in your own detached house located on the property.
    Only in the warmer months as this home is very rustic, and has no heating. But it's all yours while you here.

    We cook our meals, s mostly with local or organic products. We usually have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at home.
