    We speak Dutch, English (and only a little French...) You get your meals for free in return. If you are motivated to work for a minimum of 4 or 5 hours then you can stay here for free, if you want to work less that is also possible but then you pay a small fee (to be discussed) In your free time you can swim and kayak in the area in good weather, you can enjoy nature and pure silence here!

  • Help


    Experience with construction works is not necessary! Just being motivated to work with your hands and help where possible is enough. We especially ask for support such as providing materials, bringing or carrying stones or materials etc. If you come as a couple/duo and if either of them does not want to help with the construction work, you can help me bake bread, make food, make ecological household products, do yoga together and meditate (I'm a yoga teacher)
