  • Description


    Hello, we are an Icelandic family with 10 years old twins. We need a woman over 19 years to help us with the home, children and the garden. The period we are thinking about is from august and the Whole winter.
    We live in a mountain in Norway so the person who comes need to be able to be alone for a period of time during the day and be independent in the volunteer work she needs to do. We don't need someone who "just wants to try it out" we need someone who is serious about it and knows she can manage. We have to depend on this person, so please if you have never been away from home, don't contact us.

    She will meet an Icelandic family, live in the countryside of Norway with nature around them. We have neighbors 5 min away but no traffic what so ever around the house. There is a opportunity to take a walk in the forest or on the roads around us (you are actually in the forest also), Go with a quad to the top of the mountain. Here is a fantastic opportunity to "charge your batteries". she will meet hard workers with no bullshit attitude, people who are straight forward and very experienced people in many ways and are therefor happy to be in that place in live, where we are now. We absolutely love our children and are thankful for having a family.
