  • Description


    Me (60) and an old friend, we share a house where we live a modestly life apart from a village in the countryside in nice scenery, next to the wood. With us live some chickens and a cat.

    Located in the ancient city of LINZ I’m running a fine shop with handmade jewellery (also from my own workshop) and rarefied scarfs.

    I offer (organic) homemade, fresh, vegetarian meals (free of ideology), also glutenfree is available. Fruits, vegetables, eggs....from our own mini-farm. Milk products from an organic farm nearby. But sorry, there is no extra cooking for guests.

    For your requests, please manifest your intended duration of stay together with the date. Arrival and departure days from Tuesday to Friday in LINZ. Or by agreement.
    We are early birds ! ! ! ! !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cities as well as natural landscapes to your discovery.
    I am going to Linz 4 times a week- a good chance for you, to depart from the countryside.
    Besides of Covid-19, in LINZ, there is usually a rich offering of distinct, and autonomous and classical culture. Many really amazing festivals for free.
    I like to have an exchange in nearly everything. My interests are widely spread, from fashion to muck out stables. You can be a companion for long walks, museums, operas..., And I am also happy in not being agitatd - chlling by watching the chickens with a glass of wine, this is our home-cinema.

    Interested parties can acquire about gardening, herbs, cooking...., and many technics in a workshop. You only have to ask for it.

    Traditionally, I did so many diverse things in my life, so it is nothing extraordinary for me, to use, to process, to manufacture (and to eat) what is available. You can adapt varied skills. Taking plants from the meadows for meals, for teas, for detergents, for only one exempel and common for me.
    To live in an ecological way- what means, we don't waste food, energie, resources- is strict (and not unimportant for our earth)

  • Help


    Do with me, what I do. This are general tasks, to maintain a house, a garden...
    Help is variable and dependes to the season, to the weather, to our atmosphere.... ;-)
    Cleaning, put in order things, shopping, filling water tanks for plants and animals. Rarely renovating.
    From spring to autumn gardenwork like weeding, picking fruits. Making hay and wood and food for winter. Exeptionally look after the very carefree chickens.

    YOU WILL GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY! Gardenwork is physically strong!
    In the countryside, there are also many unwelcome guests like mouses, flys, ticks, spiders....

    If you are creative and good in handicrafts, I am happy, if you can enrich my house with your artwork in many ways.

    To clean the dining table and to wash dishes should be normally. AT the end of your stay you have to leave your room clean. aware, that our deal is" workaway" - it is frequently misconceived and confused with "holidayaway"

    Accommodation is a room for your own (as shown), where you have your sphere of privacy
    - and breakfast, if you want to be alone in the mornings.
    In the garden, you also can create your own space as a private paradise.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I will allow flexibility at all times for your activities.
    You can make excursions of 2, 3, 4... days to see other interesting places in and around Austria. Trains are running about every 15 min. dircet to Vienna & Salzburg in 90 min.
    Here we are in a hilly, quiet landscape, you can enjoy nature pure from the doorstep by walking, hiking, biking.....

    Small lakes nearby. In the center of Linz a small beach on the Danube, which has drinking water-quality.
    The famous Danube bike-trail nearby leads you along amazing sceneries. Also other Austrian bike-trails, around lakes & mountains, in wonderful scenery and nature.

    During summer, many festivals and concerts free of charge.
    Necessary to signalize, that in the countryside is no opportunity to go for a party. If you prefer to enjoy the night-life in Linz, you have to make a night of it, whenever you want to. To find a place to overnight there, should not be a problem.
