  • Description


    Hello, we are looking forward to meet other people of different countries. We are not able to travel around so much, so this is a fantastic possibility to meet anyhow. ;-)

    We are a family with three daughters (21,14,9) and a few different animals (dog, cats, ducks, chicken, bees), living in a small village in Bavaria. If you like the mountains or nice trips with the bike you have many possibilities for all aims. If you like to go to towns, we have a station where you can get to Munich in 1 hour. There are also a few nice little towns which are worth to visit. Many nice lakes are around us, too. You can find more informations about our village/region in the internet. Look after MUNICH/MURNAU/BAD TÖLZ/WEILHEIM/TEGERNSEE/LENGGRIES/STARNBERGER SEE/AMMERSEE....these are some towns and lakes not far away....

    We would like to spend a few time with you sharing a part of your whole journey with you!

    We will be happy to get some support in the everyday dutes like cooking, household, gardening, but also some renovating painting....There will be always some nice jobs everyday, but we are not having a big project or something like this.

    We think that it would be a very nice happening when somebody joins us for a few days or weeks. Living together, talking together, meeting and also separating again. Like it feels comfortable for everyone.
    Me, Martina, lived many years in living communities and it was one of my best times. I am glad to be able to experience it again in this way.

    If it is necessary for you: We are eating "everything", but mostly vegetarian and vegan. We are not in a different religion or confession, but feeling close to Buddhism. Our eldest daughter is living in another town but also here at some weekends, the middle and younger one are going to school. They are also excited for "new housemates" and how changing it will be for our life?
    Changing, but I am sure!, absolutely worthful to start this project. Let's try it!

    So, feel welcomed and send us a message, if you are interested in meeting us, too.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our region offers many possibilities for nature trips and so on. Also Munich, as a wonderful town to visit, is not far from here. My husband is working in Munich, so it will be easy for you to get there. There are some good trains and busses to nice smaller towns around here. We can also help you with your wishes for your visit here, make things together that you are interested in (if it is possible for us....not things like Skydiving ;-)) and we like to talk and to spend time together.

  • Accommodation


    You (1-2 persons) can stay in our comfortable attic, which is a nice place to stay. Maybe sometimes we will have to pick up something out of it because there are books and games of us. But nothing necessary so that we can always wait when it is agreeable for you. Bathrooms are always shared. Most of all days we are cooking ourselves, so that we meet one time together for eating. Breakfast and so on is together or alone...We have not special times to do it, it depends on the day of the week and so on.
