  • Description


    Do you like donkeys? You should also like living in the countryside. We are: one person, 2 very kind donkeys. And would like to get some help, but not too much (in average about 3 hours per day). Such as helping with the care of the donkeys, repairing a fence if necessary, feeding the oven (in the winter), helping with the garden.

    Due to Corona and especially the new variants, only fully vaccinated people are admitted. Otherwise it's much too complicated. And the donkeys request that you stay at least 2 weeks so that they can get familiar with you.

    In my house, you will have your own private apartment, with bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. This also enables you to be independent with the meals (if you like and enjoy cooking, share dinner with me). The house is situated at the end of a small valley, directly near the forest. Perfect to enjoy the quietness of the nature and listening to the birds singing. Beautiful for long walks (especially with the donkeys which usually have a long walk or ride daily).

    WiFi is provided, but please be aware that this is the countryside of Germany (so it is not too quick, fine for mails, checking news, but not sufficient for video streaming). Therefore only suitable for digital nomads if they don't need highspeed access.

    Like having vacation with a little bit to do around. Our next project will be to set up a new fence around the garden, with wooden sticks having had a special treatment from the donkeys.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a lot of stuff about donkeys and how they can be trained, as they are very intelligent and eager to work. Much the opposite than the general opinion.

    Own apartment, with own bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. You will have breakfast and lunch on you own. In the evening we might cook dinner together (dependent on who is the better cook, most often not me, and dependent on your preferences).

    If you are vegetarian, we might have dinner together about every 2nd day (I am not vegetarian). If you prefer vegan food, you will have to provide yourself.

    Please be aware that the whole location is non-smoking area.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The region is a natural parc region, with lots of forest, some small lakes and lots of quiet and beautiful places. Murrhardt is a small rural town, about 8 km away. Using one of the bicycles you might also explore the countryside. Public transportation is very limited (so having a car would be helpful).
    As the donkeys are used to travel by car, we might also have trips around with them.
    My own car is specially equipped for also transporting the donkeys. Therefore it only has 2 seats (one for me as the driver plus just one other person. As a couple coming by your own car would be appropriate.
