We are the Serbian family with 3 children (2 teens and one pre-school) located in Messel, the small village close to Darmstadt and Frankfurt am Main.
We speak English, German and Serbian/Croatian. My wife speaks also some Italian. Children are bilingual (German/Serbian), and can very well make conversations on English too. They are also learning French in the school.
I'm a software developer working for the company in Frankfurt but also have some own projects for PC and mobile phones. My wife is finishing PhD in literature and working on a her first novel. In general we are very creative and flexible family.
We have a house with nice garden and we need some help with various renovation works, gardening, general help in home, some help with a children or even help with some IT tasks for my private projects.

We moved in a old house and we are still not sure what will be a good place for your accommodation. It's a large house but currently not all rooms are available due the renovation work.
