We are four friends who renovate an old house from 1906. We try to do as much as possible by ourselves, so its quite a slow process. The house has a huge garden as well. There are always different projects in the house and the garden, so everybody could find something that suits his or her interests.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You live with us on the same floor and share meals. We have lunch together every day and most days we also sit together in the evening. If the weather is nice we spend our evenings in the garden, have bbq and make a fire. We used to travel a lot which we cannot do at the moment because of the lack of time. So we are happy to invite people to our site and listen to their stories.
We all have a lot of different projects. It would be great, if you could help us somehow with the house. If you are not manually skilled you can still help us cooking, food shopping or sometimes cleaning. There are also a lot of things that needs to be done in the garden.
This host offers a language exchange
I constantly try to improve my English. Additional I used to speak some French which I would like to remember. I also tried to learn Spanish and Greek.
We have one guest room that could be used. It is on the same floor as our rooms and we share a toilet. On our floor we don't have showers, yet. There is a very nice house in the garden with toilets and showers, which we use as well. We usually have breakfast indiviually but we try to have lunch together. You can access the fidge and just help yourself and join us for the grou0 meals.
