Come and enjoy the mix of French/German culture at the (still open) French-German border. We're right smack in the middle of Europe next to lovely Saarbrücken, between Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy, Strasbourg, Trier and Frankfurt. We are a German/Mexican-American couple who is in the process of moving from the US to Germany/France.

Help in the house
We can offer German and Spanish conversations and some teaching. As we are right at the border you will have the chance to experience the German as well as the French way of life. The UNESCO World Heritage sides 'Völklingen Steelworks', Trier and Nancy or Strasbourg are very close by. Saarbrücken itself is very influenced by French culture and cuisine while keeping it's German traditions as well.
The house needs quite a bit of LTC. This means mainly cleaning, gardening (spring, summer and fall) and a looooot of painting :). The pictures you see in the profile is a mix of how it looked just 2 years ago and the current state. Not to give the wrong impression, the house is totally livable, everything works well. It just needs a bit of a pep-up.
