  • Description


    We are a German-Austrian family of five. We are living in a semi-detached house with a big garden in a very small village in south-east Bavaria close to the Austrian border. Our oldest two daughters have moved out to study and the youngest one is here on the weekends and spending the rest of the time in boarding school to become a seamstress.
    We are working in the fields of health and software engineering.
    We have two cats and often kittens in the summer months. Sometimes other animals like ducks or chicken roam through our garden. We are located close to Chiemsee (6km). It's one of the biggest lakes in Germany. There are also mountains close by.
    We' re looking for help in the household and garden.
    As a family we enjoy playing board games, juggling, knitting, cycling and spending time in nature. We are also interested in politics and living a healthy live style. We are all vegetarians and don't smoke or consume alkohol.

    We hope to welcome you soon!

  • Help


    We need help in the household and gardening like cooking, shopping, cleaning, pouring the plants, weeding. We are all vegetarian, so it would be great if you could cook vegetarian. Often you can pick yourself which tasks you prefer and when you want to have your days off.

  • Accommodation


    You will get your own room with a bed, cupbord and desk/table. You are sharing the bathroom and the kitchen with us. One time a day there will be a hot meal. The rest of the day you can pick your meals yourself from our vegetarian kitchen. If you are allergic to any food, just tell us, we will find a solution (three of us can't eat gluten and one also no milk). All of our food is organic.

    We haven't got wifi and if you have a mobile phone you need to put it on airplane mode in the house. But you can go online via cable. It works very well.

    We have a bycicle for you and the next trainstation is 1,5 km away the busstation 1km. Buses and trains go ca. 3 times an hour during daytime but less in the evening. We also have a piano if you want feel free to play.

    Also we are all non-smokers, don't drink alkohol and would prefer if you would adhere to these principles as well.
