  • Description


    Hello! My name is Helene, I live with my 2 daughters and my father in low on a beautiful little farm in Austria, one and a half hours north from Vienna. The next town is about 10 minutes by car. We live here with our four wonderful dogs, three horses and a cat. My husband works during the week in Vienna, and thursday night he is comming home.
    We would welcome a female helping hand who loves animals and likes horsriding westernstile.
    I would be happy about help in the houshold, also outside in the garden and in the stable.
    My children, 16 and 15 years old learn English at school and they would like to improve their knowledge in this language. So it would be an advantage if your mother tongue is English
    We would like to welcome a new member of our family, nonsmoker.
    Greatings from Helene, Markus, Kathi, Sophie and Toni.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a bautiful countryside where ist is very quiet, our neigbours live some hundred meters away, but by car you are in 10 minutes in a small town.
    We would like to show you beautiful places around, near is a big lake, and in winter you can go skiing.
    We have also got a swimmingpool and sauna, e-bikes and using a car is no problem.
    Our horses are well trained westernhorses and we would be very happy if you would ride them, becouse my children have not much time for it.
    It would be a pleasure to show you the capital of Austria, where we lived 6 years ago, bevore we moved here.
    You can also learn German.
