  • Description


    Hello, my Name is Nike-Theodora and I live in beautiful lower Austria with my mum, three Dogs and two cats. Our home is a over 600 years old manor with a big garden. Our house is at the foot of a small village and surrounded by meadows, fields and Forrest, so no matter wich way you look, you will see green. Even though it's beautiful it's a little to much work for two women. We would love to welcome people to our home, who would like to help us out in the garden, and show them the idyllic area we live in.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in a very varied area called the "südliches Waldviertel". Although it takes about an hour to get to the "popular" mountains, there is a Skilift nearby. On the opposite there are multiple beaches and lakes for swimming only a bikeride away. There are many fun outside activities possible like a bike tour to an old Castel throu the "wachau" and many many hiking trails. In the summer the town "Melk" (cute old Town) hosts a theater festival. There is so much more but I think you read enough ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Public transportation is rare but ther are always bikes available if you want to check out the area by yourself. Advance warning: We are a chaotic mother-doughter duo who have very different opinions an love to argue in a loving way. Our two Dalmatians are 14 and 13 years old and well, age-related silly. Our third one, a Doberman mix, is a little crazy but loves everyone who knows his name.
