  • Description


    We are a German couple who moved to Sweden for fourteen years ago, and we live in Målilla, a small beautiful town in Småland. The environment is very beautiful with many lakes and lots of forest. We run a bed and breakfast and a crêperie in Målilla and we have guests from many different countries. Besides, we also have two small beautiful houses and we live in one of them. We have a lot to do with renovation, painting, gardening and housekeeping. That's why we need a helping hand. In addition, we also have three sheep and two beautiful cats. We like cultural exchange and like to communicate in different languages.
    In the summer we need more help for our company, and in spring and autumn we also need a helping hand with gardening and renovation work at our place where we live. Our Bed & Breakfast is located closed to our house. In our company you can gain experience in housekeeping and work in our crêperie. Sometimes we also have some painting work or gardening to do at our bed & breakfast.
    You will have the opportunity to learn more about housekeeping, taking care about guests, renovating and gardening. You will have plenty of time to experience Swedish nature and the Swedish way of life. Interestingly, the environment is influenced by Astrid Lindgren, the author of the book Pippi Longstocking. We live in a beautiful and cultural environment.

    We have good conditions for you. The daily work lasts about 4 - 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. All meals are included and even a nice room (single or double) with everything you need. You have your own space and of course are integrated into our family. We almost cook together or you will sometimes be served. Besides, we can lend you a bike to explore the area.
    If you find that interesting, please let us know.
