I'm Gisela, 59 years old and gardener by profession but in summer holydays nephews, children of friends and their friends and their friends ... come to our place to meet each other, to play, to ride, so swim in the village pond, to feed and muck ... and to sleep in the barn.
We need the assistance of you, a friendly, self-reliant woman with a heart for children and animals and who likes the country life for a while. A woman who knows and sees what has to be done and doesn't need detailed instructions.
We are living on a little farm in a very small village close to the Baltic Sea. The next town is the old Hanseatic town Wismar and Rostock and Schwerin aren't far away either. Furthermore there is a train station about 3km from our house with trains to Wismar and Rostock.
We also have a bicycle available for you if you want to explore our region by yourself with the beach not so far, beautiful little villages, very old village churches ... Wismar is worth seeing. It's a historic city with an old habour, pubs, a cinema, shops, museums and much more...
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
In general you can learn a lot about the way of life in rural areas and the handling of horses and other animals. You will learn a bit German and improve your language skills - maybe in German maybe in Englisch.
Child and animal care is needed, so you mustn't be afraid of neither cats, ducks nor horses. Mucking out, feeding and leading a horse with children on back without riding-experience are some examples of help that is needed to be done. Playing with the children and taking care on them will be another duty.
You have the choice between guestrooms in the house, a very small chamber in the barn or a caravan.
3-4 hours daily 5 days a week
