  • Description


    Hello :)
    We are a couple, living in a big house close to the black forest. We have 3 cats, 1 dog, chickens, geese and ducks. We have 3 children, that are studying and don't live with us anymore. We have a large garden, a barn and a big house, there is always a lot to do. We are an easy-going family, that is happy to get to know new people, and we are looking forward to show a bit of southern Germany and maybe improve our English or your German!

    I sew clothes for dolls, and Waldorf dolls and sell them on handicraft markets. My husband retired 2 years ago, but works still part time in a wellness hotel.

    The black forest is a beautiful region, with a lot of forest and hills, where you can go hiking and biking. The city Karlsruhe is about half an hour away, as well as Pforzheim. Stuttgart and Heidelberg can be reached in 1 hour, Strasbourg in 1,5 h. Our house is very isolated, it practically is located in the forest, so it is very calm, but with a lot of nature and there is no easy access to public transportation.
