  • Description


    We are a German family with four children, who live in three generations in a large house with garden / vegetable patch and an orchard a little further. We try to live the maximum in self-sufficiency, to produce, store and process ourselves, and buy what we do not have, at most among the farmers nearby. We have already traveled a lot without children (Mongolia, Afghanistan, Iran, Europe, North America) and with our children (by bike from Germany to Barcelona and by trips to France, Switzerland, Germany) We have lived 1 school year in France ( Drôme, Boulc, Terre Rouge) where we worked ourselves as a workaway on a site that has always been with travelers. We really enjoyed this exchange with people of all ages and nationalities. We like to help you learn German, or to improve it.

    We have a cat and 4 hens.

    We live in a small town, the trainstation is 3 km away. The forest is only 500m away and there is a lake for swimming 1 km away in the forest.
