  • Description


    Hi there! My name is Annelies and I'm searching for some help during the summer period for a really nice restaurant in the heart of Ameland! We are based in a little island by the North Sea. If you know how to cook or if you have any experience as a bartender, than you are a right person in a right place! Ameland is a place where you can find more bicycles and horses than cars! Ballum is an small village with a real Dutch spirit. Me and my husband (Fabian) run this place over 20 years now! We live here with our 4 children and parents.
