  • Description


    We are a family of three. My Mum Ilse (48), my Dad Erich (56) and me, Astrid (25). I was almost a year in Africa and I'm back in my parents house now. We are open minded people who love to laugh together, beeing in the nature and playing boargames together.
    My dad is working in a wood factory, my mum is working a few hours in the restaurant of our neighbors and I'm a yoga teacher, working as a waitdress and also my mum and I are doing natural healing.
    We have an old house , but we try to make it as comfortable as possible.
    It was also a little farm,but since my Mum had cancer we don't do farming anymore. We still have pigs, chicken and cats but no big animals anymore. We also still have our land, but we don't really do the farmwork. We have friends who are doing this, for that they get the grass. So as you can see we like to exchange.
    We also have many homemade products, so eating with us is always good. :)

    Our house is next to a mainstreet, but we also have the nature just out of our back door.
    The next towns for shopping or going out are just between 10 and 20 driving minutes away.

  • Help


    We are looking for a helping hand for my Mum with the garden, cleaning the house and get rid of to many old stuff what is lying around.
    Also outside with my Dad, there is woodwork to do, cleaning up around the house. (Also some stuff to get rid of)
    We also want to renovate one room, that we have a second bathroom.
    And sometimes it's just enough if you sort out and crack the nuts what we have or cuddle with our cats.
    All in all, we want to make our house comfortable and clean up that we all feel good here.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own bedroom, with a little sink in it. What is practical for brushing your teeths, make up and such small things.
    You can reach your room through my living room, what I'll share with you. It has a TV, a big couch, many books and a little kitchen corner, where you can make tea or if you want even a small breakfast. You will use it almost alone, cause I'm mostly in the kitchen with my parents.

    Until we have renovated the new bathroom we have to share the one what we have. It's small and not new, but clean.
    Also our kitchen will be renovated in autumn.
    Kitchen, living room and bathroom what we all share are downstairs, the bedrooms and my living room are upstairs.
