    Description

    We are Wendelin (60) and Franz (68), settled in Holperdorp (northwestern Germany) since 20 years. We earn our living as artists (ceramist and glassblower).

    Besides, we like to enjoy the peaceful nature around us with friends and beers, contribute to collective projects in Lienen (like helping Syrian refugees), go to some concert/ cinema in the next town - Osnabrück - 15 km from our house.

    On many aspects, we produce what we consume: vegetables, fruits, meat ,wood for the winter, . This year, we would appreciate some workforce support.

    We speak German, Spanish, French, English. Write us, and see you in Holperdorp!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live close to Bad Iburg, Lienen and the big city, Osnabrück. There you can get direct trains and buses to most German and Dutch cities. However be careful, don't expect a crazy nightlife! Nearby there is no bar, shop, restaurant or village. The first village with bus station (Bad Iburg) lies at 3 km, and the train station is at 15 km. We will pick you up at the railway station or bus station, but to enjoy your stay here you have to feel comfortable with the deep countryside: listening to sounds of nature, reading a book under a tree, walking through the forest, or just watching the sky.....
