  • Description


    We live in a beautiful part of Bavaria with lots to see and explore around us. Take our bikes (wonderful bikeways starting from our house) and go swimming or canoeing in one of our beautiful lakes (10 km to lake Staffelsee and many other beautiful lakes), enjoy mountain climbing (35 min by train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen) or the silence in our forests! We’re 40 min away from Munich by train if you prefer to visit the city. Castles from king Ludwig are also popular. We also have a nice garden where we play table tennis or badminton in the summer. Refreshing yourself in our little spring is so much fun!
    We live 2,8 km from the train station with frequent trains to Munich and Garmisch, and there’s occasionally a bus going as well. We’re happy to pick you up at the railway station in Huglfing.

    A little bit about us:
    We, Lisa (53) and Michael (60), were travelling and wwoofing around the world when we were young. We really loved this and want to offer this possibility to others. We have four sons. Two own sons (24,20) and two care sons from Afghanistan (20, 20). The little one still lives at home with us. The oldest one is travelling around the world with his Italian girlfriend. We also have two lovely cats (so unfortunately we don’t allow dogs)! And last but not least, there is a lovely Swedish guy, Nick (27) who is with us quite often. He was our first workawayer, is living nearby now and still belongs to the family.

    We love playing music, singing and we would be very happy to play together. We play cello, a little guitar and a little piano. We would love to have you if you play any instruments. We may speak different languages, but music is a language that we all understand.

    Note: We are looking for an electrician or someone who knows how to connect sockets, lights and so on.
    We are looking for someone who can do some tile work in the house by themselves.
    But first of all, we would love someone who’s happy to do gardening or general cleaning. Carpenter skills are also welcome!
    We offer a long term stay from May to October 2021.
    Because of the Corona pandemic we are taking some extra measures to keep everyone healthy. You would have to (for the first two weeks at least) enter the house with a mask to reach the bathroom. We are more than happy to meet you in the garden/outside though!
    Accomodation: We have a nice caravan in front of the building where you can stay. You can also set up a tent in our nice garden if you wish. For long term stayers, we might also be able to offer our guest room in the house. You would have to buy and cook your own food (that´s why you have to help just 2 hours).

    We organically grow all our own veggies. Lisa just loves gardening and would be happy if you like gardening as well. "The one who plants a garden, plants happiness." You would have to help 2 hours a day (except arriving and departure days) with flexible times. You could for example work 2 hours per day for 7 days or do all of your hours within two days and have the rest of the week off. You can schedule your hours however suits you the best. We have a list where you can log your hours and what you've done. This gives you a lot of free time to explore our wonderful area.
    Insurance: You need a liability insurance to visit us (check with your travel insurance).

    Come and join us!
