  • Description


    Dear reader,
    Me (61) 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 gooses, ducks, chickens and cats.

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

    I offer (organic) homemade, fresh, vegetarian and vegan meals. Fruits, vegetables, eggs....from our own mini-farm. Milk products from an organic farm nearby.

    For your requests, please manifest your intended duration of stay together with the date.
    Arrival and departure days from Tuesday to Friday in LINZ.

    I am going to Linz four times a week- a good chance for you, to depart from the countryside for city-life.

    I like to have an exchange in nearly everything. My interests are widely spread, from art, policies, history muck out stables. Besides of Corona, I visit museums and operas, also in other countries.
    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.
    Traditionally it is nothing extraordinary for me, to use, to process, to manufacture and to eat, what is available in the garden or on the meadow. You can adapt varied skills. Taking plants from the land for meals, for teas, for detergents, for cosmetics......
