  • Description


    We are Andy and Corien and we live in Gefrees in the Fichtelgebirge, which is in the south-east of Germany. Andy grew up in Gefrees an I moved here from the Netherlands in 2001. We are a christian family with two kids 12 and 14. Andy is a musician giving concerts and he runs a concert barn and invites musicians to play there. Together we run a couple of guest-apartments and create and maintain the Casa. the Casa means "house for friends". We want Casa to be a place where friends meat, eat together, enjoy nature together, talk around the bonfire, cook for each other, where the different generations learn from each other and where they join the community of music loving people.

    We are a family with two kids (12 and 14) living in the Fichtelgebirge in the south-east of Germany. Here we renovated a house to make guest-apartments and created the large garden. On the property we also have a barn, where we invite musicians/songwriters to perform. In the spring and summer we want to do more creative work in the garden. We will continue creating our biological garden with vegetables an fruit and build a water- fountain. There is also maintenance to do in the garden.
