We live in a semi-detached house in a very quiet and idyllic residential area surrounded by forest, outside a small suburb of the student city of Oldenburg. The garden is directly adjacent to the forest, the neighborhood consists mainly of young families. The town-center is 1.5 km away. There are opportunities for shoping or to travel by bus and train. Oldenburg city center is about 10km away and easy to reach by bus. We also like to provide bicycles.

There are usually three meals a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner - mainy vegan or vegetraian but all open to arrangements. If there are two of you coming you will have to share the bed.
