  • Description


    We have a wonderful wooden cabin on the edge of the Veluwe forest in the Netherlands where we love to spend our weekends, holidays and summers. But this coming period we are gone for a project and are looking for people who would like to stay at our place and in return do some repair and maintenance work on the house and garden. You will be surrounded by birds, trees and silence, the chalet is located on a very small holiday park within a few steps distance to the forest. If you love to have some privacy, to write a book, embark on long walks, make a campfire, cycle out to other places (we will have bikes available) or just be with your loved one its a wonderful place to be! Singles, couples, families and friends are welcome.

    Minor repair and maintenance tasks on the outside and inside of the house and garden. You dont need to be super handy but some experience with repairs will be handy, or at least eagerness to learn by doing :-) It involves some paintwork, repairs and gardening.
