Help us with general house, garden and child care while exploring local sights in Strašice, Czech Republic



 Min stay requested: No minimum



  • Description


    We live in beautiful hills between Prague and Pilsen. The place is perfect for anyone who likes nature and forests. But if you prefer city, it is easy enough to go to Pilsen (about 1h bus/train trip - buses and trains are cheap and go frequently) or to Prague (about 2h bus/train trip).
    We are a family of 5 - me, my husband and 3 children (girls born 2016 and 2018 and a boy born 2020). Our eldest is homeschooled. We also have a lovely dog (long haired whippet) and we are getting some chickens this year. We will ask you to help with general house and garden maintenance and childcare. Sometimes we want to travel and that time we will ask for housesitting.
    We warmly welcome families with children of similar age to our children.
    You will have your own room in our family house. You will share the rest of the house with us. There are two bathrooms for everyone to use. There is a big garden with swings (in the summer) that you are free to use. You can use your free time to go to the nearby cities (Rokycany, Plzen, Horovice, Beroun, Prague,...) or go hiking in the surrounding forests. There are even beautiful caves that you can visit. Occasionally we can give you a lift to train or directly to Pilsen or Rokycany.
    We will share our meals when we are at home together. We usually get up around 6:30 - 7:00 am and go to sleep shortly after 8 pm. We enjoy singing and playing guitar, crafting and board games. We like outdoor sports and swimming, you can join us in those as well.
    If you are applying to volunteer with us, please answer the following:
    1) Why did you choose us?
    2) What kind of work would you like to do?
