  • Description

    Description

    My name is Valli and I live with my partner and my best friend Anika 12 km from Sligo on the side of a hill with my dog, two cats, chickens and some bees in an old but cosy little cottage.
    We have a large garden and work never ends. But we also could do with help in and around the house, the workshop and cutting firewood.
    Because of the big variety of jobs here I can only take helpers with either very good English or German language skills. I`m looking for people with some experience in the required jobs and that can work independently.

    We eat a healthy variety of food in the house, vegetables, meat, fish, ....

    Depending on the weather I do a lot of climbing, kayaking, surfing, cycling and aikido and you are of course welcome to join me. We also have spare bicycles for your use.

    I dont mind helpers that want to come at short notice. I`m not so good at planning far ahead...

    The house is very cosy, but not so luxurious. I have one room with a double bed for the helpers. And a guitar and ukelele for your use.
