  • Description

    Description

    Hi there! Meet our family: Riny (39), Milou (31), our son Ayden (2019) and daughter Vayen (2021). We moved to a beautiful old farm house in 2020 in the little town of Hoenzadriel, close to Den Bosch in the Netherlands. We want to preserve all the old things in and around the house (and the house itself) and we work very hard every day to make everything durable and sustainable.
    We have 2 kittens.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our place is very peacefull, every day being here feels like a holiday, even for us! We have a pretty large forest in the backyard so you can enjoy the sounds of birds and spot lots of cool animals from our terrace. We also have 2 swings and can put a pop up swimming pool in summer.
    You will be able to learn a lot about construction tasks on a house. A skill that is very useful if you want to buy your own house one day :) I can teach you to cook nice vegan dishes, and traditional dutch food. We are both fluent in English. If you're not there yet, I'm sure staying here and talking to us will help a lot.

    Riny is very handy and al lot of the tasks that needs to be done in and around the house he wants to do himself. But we can use some help! For instance with brick laying, digging, gardening, heavy lifting, demolishing, building, isolating, cutting Wood, etc etc. There is a lot to do and there is always something you can help with, I'm sure! Maybe some of you would prefer babysitting and household chores so Riny can still work on the house when I'm at my job.

    On your days off its nice to discover the area. Its beautiful, very green, with lots of water and lots of different birds. You can walk or borrow a bike. We are 2 kilometers From the town of Kerkdriel, where you find several shops, supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, bars, a swimming pool, a golf range and more. Also close by is the beautiful old city of Den Bosch. You can get there by bike or bus. From there you have a train connection to all of Holland. Amsterdam is only 1 hour by train.
