  • Description


    Hello!!! 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, going back to school! I love hiking and mountains and I love spending my free time outdoor.
    Jeremy is the avid clmber and he spends his free time on the rocks in our area. Our son Raffa is also very outdoorsy, fun and cute! Our dog Zoe is very sweet, but getting old now and she spends lots of time sleeping...
    We always need help keeping the house clean and tidy and looking after the garden! In the afternoon I would love some help looking after Raffa so that I can focus on my research or simply have the time to wash my hair! ;-)
    If you like the outdoors, this is the place to be!
    And if you like hiking, let me know and we may organize a few days trip to the Alps!

  • Help


    We provide the meals and we will cook and eat together as a family. Of course you have 2 days a week all yours to do as you wish, you can take them in weekends or during the week as it best suit you. Just let us know in time.
    In return we expect 25 hours work mostly in babysitting, gardening, cleaning the house and cooking.
    Raffaello is almost 18 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.
