  • Description


    Servus (the Bavarian "Hello ;-)

    We are Daniel and Yvonne a warm-hearted, open and young couple.
    After 4 years of working in the film industry (Yvonne) and Daniel as a soldier (still is), we decided the time was right for a complete change of lifestyle and some 'fresh air'! So here we are living in a remote village by the lake in south Bavaria. A decision we never regret :-)

    The place includes .. acres of garden and woods with our main building. We're looking for help with both the land and buildings, ongoing woodworks and help round the house such as cooking, cleaning or entertaining the guests. Jobs on the land include building a new "Biergarten" (Beergarden) through the woods and stocking firewood for the winter, working in the main building, cleaning the shower rooms and much more...

    Our mission is to turn this camping place into a feel-good place for our guests and they should get the feeling to stay here, is something personal and special. It's a fairly big task, which is why we're looking for help and enthusiasm.

    We're an open minded, well travelled couple who love to work hard, sit together have fun and we would like to offer volunteers the same in a beautiful place with clean air and a wonderful array of bird song.

    We have bicycles to lend for fantastic on and off-road cycling, including a lovely cycle path. We're surrounded by wonderful woodland walks, there's a great fishing opportunity and you need to explore the Alpes which are about a 15 minute bike ride from our place.

    This is a great place for anyone who wants to hear themselves think. The air is wonderful, the area is charming and I'd like to think we are a positive and fun bunch to work with.
