  • Description


    For March 2020:
    IF you are already stocked on the island-due to the lock down of the country, I can host you IF you have interest for being playing with the kids some hours a day and a bit of cleaning.

    I am Alette living at island Bornholm with my two danish/Italian toddlers. We are a travelling family and choose this island as our base because of its beauty and the fairly low key life posssibilites excisting here. Far away from the noice and stress in the cities. We like music, camping in the wild - running naked, sunshine, rocks, creativity and to enjoy life and your story.... and ofcourse some good healthy food ;-)

    Bought an old carpenters house on the magical island, Bornholm in year 2017. Have had the pleasures of amazing work-awayers helping a lot. Thank you Simone, Jodi, Gennaro, Hans and Victor, creator Paul and "heating up the basement" Daniel. Especially thanks to you Radoslav. You basically saved our ass ;-) Thank you Abu for sharing your energy and together we "forced tall fences" -next stop Istanbul ;-) Masa your sweet nature and careful touch with the brushes was a welcoming gesture.

    We together have done a lot in the garden and on the old house!
    ... last winter we went to Vietnam, where Alette did a program in Global Health, while kiddos and babbo Carlo where hanging out around the pool ;-) Far away from reparing and house planning, Jibiii!...

    Alette needs you IF you have a genuine interest in the concept of being a work away person!
    IF you can be a part of the house - the family in a dedicated and respectful way.
    It is expected that you give a hand in the kitchen with cooking, cleaning dishes and ofcourse tighting up after yourself :-)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn Danish hi hi, English and Italian (Carlo also speaks spanish). Carlo lives in his own place and comes here often so you will have possibilites for many laungages and cultural experinces. You can meditate in a very varied and beautiful nature. The house is 3.5 km away from an amazing coast and the Baltic Sea. Here you can learn how it can be to be isolated, depending on your own skills, patience and quietness ;-) We have the view to a round church-the rumours are the templars where here.... defenately some of the magic you will catch at the oldest castle ruin of North Europe, Hammershus. Dive into your imagination and live the adventure among granite covered landscapes and the forest with the bisons. In summer the villages at the sea side vibrates like in the south. We even grow figs trees here :-) You will jump on the tramboline, go for a swim, driving through really beautiful landscapes and to the activities around the irland (right now an International Street performer festival). Aware that this island is condiscioned by the island life as both isolated and having tourist leaving. The last tourists in October, for returning in May ;-)
    We share stories from our cultures, try learning to live in the moment and talk about the condicisions of the human kind on Planet earth that will excist while human are outsourcing their own species ;-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    100 meter to the bus stop. We have bikes and a car. It's a summer holiday island with plenty of activities, sights, tourists and atmosphere. It's the most beautiful place in DK! Fantastic bicycle routes and along the route many free nice shelters for camping. From us there is 3.5 km down hill to the Baltic Sea with rocks and sand. We have 2 km to the waterfall from where there is a magical trekking route through the landscape once formed by the moving ice. We have a local supermarked 100 m away and street lights shotting down 11pm which leaves you with an absolutely quite night, uhmmm ....only to woke up from the singing birds in the wild cheerie trees.... See you :-)
