    - About us:
    Andrea is a retired English teacher and Peter is a retired engineer – both in the sixties. Andrea likes to ride her horse and do ground work based on horsemanship. So you could learn a lot about horses and learn the language.
    Peter is a sophisticated amateur photographer.
    We both enjoy socializing, cultural activities and hiking .
    You will be meeting a lot of riders coming in and out daily and also some summer guests in our other guest house.
    If you like solitude and nature, you will like the quiet hours in the evenings and sitting around the fireplace at night.

    - Miscellaneous:
    Riding our horses will not be possible for our helpers.

  • Help


    The tasks will be different from day to day. Mainly helping Peter with special projects (e.g. rebuilding a deck, painting walls) and working on the farm with animals like picking up horse manure or walking the dog. Sometimes cleaning the house and cooking, general maintenance or watering the flowers.
    working hours: 4 hours/day . Two days/week are off.
    Minimum stay is one week, maximum length depends… :-)
    We look forward to meeting and sharing our home to open hearted, independent and animal friendly people. Let us know what your passion and expectations are!
    Good knowledge of the English language is essential for sufficient communication ! Actually, we would prefer
    n a t i v e English speakers (or Germans)!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our hometown Sulz (am Neckar) is situated at the edge of the Black Forest. Our little town has all the stores that are usually needed and there is a train station. On foot it is 3/4 hour walking distance to the train station.
    Beautiful cities like Freiburg, Tübingen and Stuttgart are in close distance by train. Biking and hiking trails start right from our home. Normal bikes are always available, also an e-bike, but only if we are not using it ourselves.
