    i am from the Netherlands but i also speak English, French and German.
    Also i sing in multiple choirs so i could teach you how to sing if that's something you're interested in.

  • Help


    I have a large garden and there is always plenty of work to do:
    sawing wood getting rid of the bad weeds taking care of the vegetable garden etc.
    I also have a almond orchard nearby where depending on the season i might need some help moawing the lawn cutting wood picking up almonds etc.
    The house i live in is from the 1800's and there is always something to do:
    General maintenance like painting and cleaning.
    Or you could cook something from your country i'd love to try new recipes.

    I am a meat eater but if you have vegetarian wishes we could work something out.

    Lodève the town i live in is situated in a valley and there is beautiful nature and a lot of history in and around the town.
    There are a lot of beautiful hiking trails.
    There are rivers and a lake within 15minutes where you can go for a swim.
    In the museum there is a permanent prehistoric exhibition.
    Also there are a lot of surrounding villages with traces of prehistoric times.
    The romans have lived here and left there traces.
    So did some of the crusaders.
    If you're into history there really is a lot to see and learn.
