  • Description


    Community in the Allgäuer Alps

    We are a (therapeutic, pedagogy) extended family with 13 people in 4 generations.
    Beside our familie members, this is the home of in the moment 4 people we take care of and share our live with. This work is the economical ground we are all together living from.
    Our way of living is a simple one, somewhere between the farmer 70 years ago here on our old mountain farm and the south geman reality 2019. We want to live a meaningful and spiritual way of live.
    Gardening for self supply; some animals as sheeps, chickens, ducks, rabbits to stimulate live, especially for the kids and also spinning and felting, food,.....; clay and carpenter works to renovate ; making firewood, for heating, cooking and for the shower; cooking to a big table with a lot of hungry mouth on; looking after our 5 (soon 6) children; singing, jodeling, doing a bit music around big bonfires and all this together we want to share with the people we take care of.

    We prefer a length of 4 weeks and more for your residence.
    So if you want to share a part of your live with us, we are sure that both sides can benefit.
    You will get organic food and an simple room for the time you will stay. We expect in exchange an fair amount of help to the community.

    It is important to know that our everydays life is quite intense. The people we are taking care off, are in need of presence and help from others. Everybody is forced to grow personally and together with the community.
