  • Description


    My name is Annette.

    I am 48 and a teacher but work at a living farm museum with a shop and a cafe, where I sell all the foodproducts from Bornholm and serve coffee and nice cakes.

    I live on my own, have 3 kids in the age from 13-21. They live in Copenhagen and my daughter comes here every second weekend and holidays.

    i have just bought a big farm, situated close to Gudhjem, with a fantastic garden with birdlife and amazing view to Christians Ø. The farm goes back to 1825, but here where another house before that, people lived here since the middelage.
    In the garden runs Kobbe å and during spring and fall trouts goes there, it should be the best place to catch trouts.

    The buildings are all made in the old tradition and handcraft and is very well preserved.
    The garden has many big 200 years old trees and has been left unattended for 3 years, so it need to be put back to how it was.
    I need help for light renovating indoor, especially painting and decorating. I also need help in the garden and there is a lot of cleaning in the farthers.

    depending on your skills there will be different tasks to do:-)

    I hope you find my description of me and my place interesting and hope to see you.

    I offer you a room for sleeping access to kitchen and bath and common room. You will work 4 hours a day and keep yourself with food.
    I will welcome you in the periode from 1. august-30. october 2018.

    Best Annette

    What else ...

    You will have free wifi. When you have the time off, you can borrow one of my bikes and bike around the island. just look up Bornholm and you will get so many opportunities to do here. lots of nature, wildlife, hicking, biking, climbing,history back to the middelage and off course archeology and stones and rocks. I like people to feel at home in my house. They have to be tidy and proper, clean after them selves, it is not a partyzone, but a place to work, relax, show respect to other people and privacy.
