  • Description

    Description

    We are a german 5 person family: Sarah and Florian in their late thirties and three lovely children age 6, 4 and 1 years. We live in a house with a big garden. 150 meters from our home there is an idyllic lake surrounded by beautiful nature. At the moment we are renovating parts of the house and we plan to create the garden in a new way.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have travelled different parts of the world ourselves and love to get to know other open minded people. We are natives in German and we speak English and Spanish. Whilst staying with us one can practice and learn more in these languages. Sarah knows a lot about plants and gardening. As we are family with small children it is possible to learn how child care and education are lived in our family. We live in a small lake district which is a beautiful nature reserve - a paradise as some of our friends said. One lake is at 150m of our house and invites for swims. The biggest lake is 2km away and offers diffrent water sports such as SUP and swimming. We own a sailing dinghy there. So we can offer small sailing leisure activity. We have bikes for our guests so that you can do bike excursions on your own. The big Bodensee is at 30 min drive by car from our home. You can reach alpine landscapes within an hour and real mountains within 1.5 hours. The garden is equipped with a fire pit and slacklines.

    At home we are parents, partners and hosts and hopefully friends soon. In our working lives we are psychologists. Don´t worry we are absolutely human and non-therapeutic at home. And no, we can not read minds ;). But if there was an interest in our work or profession we can tell some stories of our working life.

  • Help

    Help

    There is always something to do in the household, the garden or in the worksite in our house. We are thankful for childcare in order to proceed in the mentioned areas.
    Considering household or `family help´the tasks could be preparing family meals, cleaning the house or support us with the laundry. As well as childcare: Playing with the children, reading books with them or explore the beautiful nature with them around our house.

    We have a big garden. Help with the garden concerns caring for the plant and vegetables we grow, cutting the grass or hedges or harvesting the apple trees. As soon as we have help we want to build playground elements für the childeren such as a swing, sandpit or slide. May be even a tree house.

    At the moment we have 2 separate apartments in our house. One of them is in renovation. We are about to create a third apartment by transferring a WC into a bathroom. We have professional craftsman who will perform some of the things that have to be done. But there are plenty building steps we will perform on our own. With these we need support: e.g. breaking through walls, renewing the ceilings. A lot of tasks can be done by amateurs. If you are workawayer with professional skills in a craft that would be even better.
