  • Description


    We are on top of a mountain near Freiburg/Germany 1200m high. It is a big house which is going to be a guesthouse with restaurant by the end of the year. At the moment there is a lot of construction work going on and we will have to prepare the garden in summer. It is a project including several people. My husband Achim and I (Doris) are in charge to build up the business.
    Brigitte is in charge for the furnishings and Martin is planning our house technic and is our salesman.
    In Summer there is work in the large garden of the property, we need help with some building or help to build up all the new furnitures. If there are a few people you stay in the house or otherwise with us in Freiburg. This depends on the current circumstances on the construction site. You can do a lot of nice hikes here, mountain biking is really good here and there is a small lake for swimming nearby. We have barbicues in the evening and watch the stars. You can visit the city of Freiburg which is half an hour from our place by car or 45 Minutes by public transport. Freiburg is a very nice and friendly city with a lot of cafes, bars, shops and museums and music events in summer.
