  • Accommodation


    In exchange for 5 hrs of work per day, we can provide accommodation and meals. We have a hot tub to relax in if you like so. We are very easy going and so we are flexible with hours: you can work more someday in order to do have some day off and visit the area.
    We have a guest room for single people with a twin bed.
    If you are a couple, we had a 26' trailer that you can use as accommodation. There is a true double queen bed, and electricity, TV and radio but you will use the shared home bathroom
