    Description

    My name is Merete. I'm a 52 years old woman and run a retreat centre, offering different kinds of courses such as yoga retreats. Accommodation in tents for tourists. Guests stays in nice furntitured canvas tents. A nice Japanese garden is available.
    Personally, I love gardening and animals (have cats). A brand new bathhouse with sauna and showers is built and available for my guests. So here are 2 main houses now and I'm exited about how my Summer guests will welcome this luxury but grounded service house. Since I'm a yoga teacher I offer yoga to the Summer guests. One of my jobs is also maintainance of the farm and guesthouse. Here I will aslo need some help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in beautiful nature surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, close to a river. My retreat is on the farm I grew up on. The fjord is 3 km away and close to Geiranger fjord which is on Unescos World Heritage list. The owner is a yoga teacher. The traveller will also be able to take part in yoga sessions (almost daily). Touristic places around to visit.

    Mainly garden help and painting. The buildings on the farm need a caring and good painting hand. Also the new bathhouse need to be painted. We have tent rooms with beds for hire so I sometimes need help for doing the beds etc.

    Cooking is mainly to me and your self. But even I love cooking my self its important that you can contribute with making food. I will prefer someone that is handy and practical.
