  • Description


    We are an international family (I am Italian + my husband from New Zealand + our German son + our dog an Italian german shepherd) living in Frankenjura, a famous place for rock climbing and hiking (which we love).
    I (Barbara) am an oceanographer but currently doing my PhD in biogeography in Bayreuth. I need help babysitting our 1 year old son in the afternoon (in the morning he goes to baby school), so that I can focus on my research. We always need help keeping the house clean and tidy. Jeremy made an office in the guest room, and now he works a lot from home. He will need a room for himself to work. We also need help finishing building an apartment downstairs, taming our garden/forest.
    If you love the outdoors, hiking and climbing, this is the place to be!

  • Help


    We provide the meals and we will cook and eat together as a family. The weekends would be yours to do as you wish, or join us with our family activities (usually climbing or hiking).
    In return we expect 25 hours work mostly in babysitting, gardening, cleaning the house and cooking.
    Raffaello is almost 15 months old, joyful, a little explorer...
    In the new apartment we still need to lay down the parquet, built the restroom and the kitchen.
    In the garden, there is to cut the grass, looking after the vegetable garden (all organic), making a path in our forest, manage it (maybe cutting some wood?), weeding...

    The area is famous for hiking, climbing and breweries! Nurnberg and Bayreuth are 2 very nice city nearby. There is a direct train to Nurenberg, I work in Bayreuth. I like hiking and Jeremy climbing, you can join us in these activities anytime! There is also a nice swimming pool downtown, and different breweries close by.
