  • Description


    Who are we?
    We are an open-minded and warm hearted family of four - expecting our third child in August. My name is Petra, my husband is Uli. The children - Leo (five years old), Elin (two and a half) - are lively, lovable, curious and love to stay outside in the nearby forest or at the playground.

    Where do we live?
    We live in a beautiful house nearby a small fishing lake. Our house is surrounded by a small garden and we also have to dogs (Kaya and Suki). The village has approximately 8000 inhabitants and is located near Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Mannheim and Speyer (30 minutes by car).

    What about us?
    We don´t eat meat but sometimes fish. We try to live sustainable and resource-friendly with low waste and fresh products to eat for example.
    We love to meet friends, we love to travel and enjoy life.
    Our day usually starts between 7 and 8 in the morning until 8 or 10 in the evening, depending on whether the kids slept during the day or not :)

    Who are we looking for?
    We are looking for someone who wants to join our familiy for two or three months to help us with child care, household, animal care, maybe in the garden.
    We prefer someone who stays from September until November or December.

    What about you?
    We offer you a private room with new furniture and internet.

    Anything else?
    We don´t smoke and would prefer someone who doesn´t smoke, too :)
    Don´t hesitate to ask! We love to hear from you!
