  • Description


    We are looking for a couple who like to combine Holiday and labour in the luxury of our estate. End of september until end of oktober. Besides enjoying the luxury, treat the house as it was yours, you need to mow at least ones a week (4 hours) and your major project is to sand and paint all shutters! We will be there to make you known with the house and get to know each other. Then we are off to Holland due to the arrival of a grandchild. The other reason is that I get a new hip and cannot do heavy work for 3 months.
    Of course the use of house, pool and sauna is for free. If you are not coming by car, an old Renault 25 is available. We like to clearly discuss the painting job and agree on a correct extra fee for the labour.

Serious reactions with a good feeling for this project and with a reasonable view concerning the extra fee, will get the website address of the estate. as soon we are in contact we will send you the pictures of the shutters and the condition they are in! (they where done in 2015 and a part again in 2017. (lots of sun exposure) It can be handy if you can both work with wood and paint!
