  • Description


    Me (62) and a friend, we share a house (spatially divided) 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, 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/vegan meals. Fruits, vegetables, eggs....from our own mini-farm. Milk products from an organic farm nearby.

    For your request, please manifest your intended duration of stay together with the date.

    I like to have an exchange in nearly everything and i am overjoyed, to delve into new spheres with you. My interests are widely spread, from muck out stables.
    And I am also happy in not being agitated - chlling by watching the chickens with a glass of wine- this is my home-cinema.
