    Description

    We have beautiful (and big) garden and always something to build or repair in house. We live in remote area right on the edge of National park Mols bjerge and 8 km from beach, which you definitely can enjoy in summer (you can take bike or go with us by car, you can also park your own car here). Now as we have jobs which take a lot of time and energy and now little guy named Kai born in autumn 2023, we sometimes feel overwhelmed with garden and house and for me with kid and home office, village life of foreigner can be bit lonely, so it would be fantastic have sometimes helping hand and some company as well. But remember - our village life is more for introvert people since there is not much excitement except amazing nature.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can share some of our happiness attitude. Nikolaj always try to change the world to better, more equal, righteous place... and he can get quite passionate when he talks about that or see some stupidity or injustice around - which can be for some people refreshing, for some almost anoying.... so good talks are welcomed. And me? I traveled the world, overcome many crisis and now work with people to help them re-connect with love to the life, to themselves specially through work and creativity. Since I am a writer, work online, also have company with 2 eshops (books, stationery...), I can share that knowledge as well.

    We will mostly need from you to help us with gardens and outside work / and walk and play with Kai. I will always explain what we need and how we need it, so you will need to follow. If is it okey with you or if you love to gardening / kids, than we have a match :) My boyfriend always build something, so maybe if you are skilled he will ask you for help as well (painting, wood work, digging...). Next project is to build little stone terrace, maybe painting the terrace or - hard task for someone strong - make a new kitchen garden. We welcome 2 weeks stay. Check our calendar ;)

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We can provide you small guest house (double bed, table, sofa) with amazing terrace (=outside kitchen with cooking place and fridge), for bathroom and toilet you need to go through garden 20 m to main house. From house and terrace you will get absolutly magic view for garden, forests and cows on the green fields - but it can be chilli somedays, even in summer. We will share with you some food from our garden house and from dumster diving, which we do sometimes and it provide quit a lot fruits and vegetables, bread, we can have breakfast together, otherwise you take care about your daily food and cooking as you need in your own kitchen. We can plan some days dinner together, when we do shopping and you can cook, how about that? :) If we will have a more relaxed period, we can make once in a week another activities together - walks in Mols hills or around lakes, go to beach or shopping in secondhands (which we love:), only remember - we like to plan it in advance, since we have hard works and kid, so we really like our space and quite calm and sustainable way of life with respect to people and nature and full of happiness - that is what we would love to share with you. We are international (danish-czecz) couple, so we speak english in home. I am during a days with Kai or in my home office, while Nikolaj is going to work (sometimes in Aarhus, so you can visit city with him as you want if you wanna explore that beautiful city - but he goes in morning 5:30, back in afternoon;).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are for sure not "party people", it is a calm area. So it is perfect for relaxing, reading, writing, hiking, bikes, swimming... We also appreciate, if you do not drink too much alkohol (glass of vine or beer on terrace is absolutely fine, we love it as well, but... you know - parties are not - anymore, haha - our lifestyle). And we do not welcome workawayers who smoke marihuana. Thank you for understanding.

    In the guest house and its terrace there is LIMITED WIFI, usually only on table and it can get weak/slow. Some days I work there at terrace and it can be fine for emails, Youtube, websites - just not alway reliable (in the case you need it for work - not recommended). Also remember that mobile signal can get lost in house (better to have phone laid on window). As I said - village life :))

    As I wrote about transport - we can give you bike and you can go to beach, supermarket or just around, you can go with us by car if we go to Aarhus, Ebeltoft, supermarket or somewhere else. Bus (and supermarket) is 4 km away.

    So if you need slow down, relax in green area with songs of birds (there is a bird reservation, so you will hear sweet songs of 44 and more species) - you will like it here.
