  • Description


    We are a family of 5 + a dog, mother and father and 3 boys, age 21,17 and 8 years.

    We are interested in 1 or 2 persons, if you are a family of more then 2 persons you are welcome to take contact, if two persons you need to share the bedroom. If a family we have some other possibility.

    The house is around 400 square meters in 3 floor. 1st floor has 1 bedrooms toilet/bath. Garage++

    2nd floor is the main floor, 2 bedrooms, office, kitchen, living room and toilet/bath.

    3rd floor 4 bedrooms, living room, office, toilet/bath.

    The surroundings are good and quiet.

    We live a 200 meter from the sea and we have pleasure equipment for being on the sea and in the sea.

    I, Rigmor is vice principal for the public school in Vestmanna and Jens is a teacher, self employed and during freetime Captain of various RIB-boats sailing around the Faroe Islands.

    And our last experience is that we have a sailing yacht that we hopefully will sail a lot with.

    Because we are a very open family there can be a lot of guests visiting our home.

    The tasks will change a little bit depending on what time of year you will stay.

    If you feel like "I can't do that or that" don't hesitate to tell us what you can do, there is only one thing that is very important "the driving licence" for a normal car, but it is not a must.

    The age of our WorkAwayer is important 25+ years

    This is because of our daily task that changes a lot during the year.
    Helping with the garden is mostly cutting grass.

    Other: Helping Jens with his work.

    All the jobs will be fitted for the person's skills.
