  • Description

    Description

    I´m a family father in the mid fiftees. Working part time in my main job and the other half I maintain a big house with a huge garden. I am sharing my space with six chicken. The house is located in a wonderful scenery with the panorama of the alps looking out of the window. The next bigger city is about 20km away and there is no bus stop close to the house so you would need to have your own car. In exchange you will stay in a very small farmer village with lots of untouched nature around. On the weekend my daughters will be at home as well. They are very keen on practicing languages and meeting travellers from abroad as they spend some time in foreign countries as well. One of them also made experiences with working for food and accomodation and she told me a lot about her nice experinces. Therefor I like to give something back to other travellers so they are able to have some nice and safe experince as well. I am speaking german and english (not perfect but happy to improve).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My home has the perfect location for everyone how loves outdoors and nature. As soon as you step out the the door you can start to hike, to bike or in winter to skate. About 10 Minutes away there is a lake where you can go for a swim. Its less then 30 minutes (by car) to reach the border to Austria with access to the mountains. In about 20 minutes you can reach three different cities for shopping, cinema,...

    I would describe myself as open minded, interested in different cultures, active, polite, respectful and calm.
    Sharing my space with you I would like you to be respectful, reliable, friendly and take care of other people things.
    If you can imagine yourself helping me in and around my house I would be happy to recieve your request.

    IMPORTANT:

    At this point I would like to mention again that you will need your own car. Our home is NOT reachable by public transport and there are so many nice places around to explore. To keep yourself independend and to let you make the best out of your stay with us i totally reccomend you a car!
    Please put in your request the length and the date you would like to stay with us :-)
    Looking forward to hear from you!
