  • Description


    Family needs a hand for general maintenance and house renovating.
    We work at home so we'll be always available for you, and of course you're part of the family for leisure activities if you want.

    UPDATE august 2020 No access to the seaside property because of mass tourism and the virus until September, so we will stay at the countryside property.

    Need someone with good sewing skills from now till october.
