 Min stay requested: at least 3 weeks



  • Description


    Hi workawayers :-),
    We are Floor & Frits and we have two daughters; Mayla 5yr. and Roos 7yr.

    We are open minded and a very creative people. Both daughters have the name of a beautiful flower. We live near the historic city off Deventer. Very nice to visit as well :-)

    Frits is a master florist in heart and soul. And he is a designer, decorator, flower-artist, international teacher and flower- interior stylist.

    We like open minded people who are somewhat self-assured and aware. You must also be representative and open about how you feel. And of course creative :-).

    We love flowers and Frits started it as a hobby and he developed it as a profession. The love of flowers, collours and what nature is giving us.

    We are open to creative minds with whom we can connect. we would like to take you into our creative thinking and exchange ideas about it. Let you look through our eyes and let it take you through the art that comes from our hands.

    Especially the international nature of work-away appeals to us enormously. By bringing together different cultures you get new insights and broadening on many fronts. And maybe you can learn some Dutch ;-). And you can learn our daughters a different language.

    We have several creative tasks that we do voluntarily. Including leading a project of a large green festival. Frits is also completely disguise the gala of the Alzheimer's foundation. We can use your help and insight with these assignments and more.

    In addition; for our two daughters we need occasionally nursing assistance. Or just draw and play with them :-). How does that seem to you? let us know.

    ooooh, we almost forgot. A big hobby of Frits is photography and he is always looking for people who want to model for him. Would you like to pose :-)?

    Are you responsible and reliable? Representative, open minded and creative?

    - coming up with creative solutions
    - creating
    - painting
    - develop your and my creative mind
    - Maid and cleaning
    - help with babysitting

    Warm wishes,

    Floor, Frits, Roos and Mayla

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We think it would be fun to take you into the life of a Dutch family. How we live and how we raise our children. We are open to our children to learn a different language and who knows you can help :-). And of course we like to teach you some Dutch. Frits travels a lot through the country and it seems nice to take you and show the Netherlands.

    We are located in a village, close to the beautiful city of Deventer. There is a bicycle that you can use.

    From Deventer you are by train in Amsterdam for about an hour. You meet many different people, from exclusive to average.

    The creative ideas that we can exchange are invaluable. We will also regularly ask you for fun sights and other outings.

    What else ...

    There is much to do in the area, there is a train and bus station nearby. And you will have a bike at your disposal. Deventer is 5km cycling, there is a beautiful mill nearby, you can take a boat across the IJssel river and swimming lake Bussloo is close by. big cities such as Arnhem, Deventer and Apeldoorn can be reached easily and quickly by train. Amsterdam is also an hour by train. So the accommodation is nicely central to the country.
