  • Help


    We are a small Family of three -44, 50, 8 living on a 2Hektar Land on an isolate beautiful space.
    With two horses, two donkeys, cats and dogs , rabbits and chicken we need mainly help with the animals.
    But as we just started a bigger Garden project we also need help with planting harvesting weeding etc.
    The main additional Project until the end of the year is to finish a little stone ruin for renting out.
    For that work like cleaning old stonewalls -, rendering and other similar work is required.
    But also walking the horses and donkeys is something we appreciate after learning how to lead these animals, or if there is some previous skills available.

  • Accommodation


    At the moment we just have guest room in the house available, with own bathroom, shared kitchen and outside space with a big pool.
    It is a very modern open house so privacy is possible but limited ;-)....
    If one is coming with a Camper there is a lot of space to be and especially one place with water connection by the house. In nearby future it will be possible to be in the guesthouses and of course in summer there is plenty space for tents.

    We offer 3 times food a day, which include breakfast , lunch and diner throughout the week. At the weekend
    helpers are doing self - catering whereas they can use ground food as rice , potatoes, pasta or whatever is in the house.
