  • Description


    Live with us in the countryside near Berlin, Germany.

    We live in the middle of a village, surrounded by beautiful nature such as numerous lakes, big wild forest, fields and meadows. At the same time, the center of the capital Berlin is only one hour drive away. There's public transport links to Berlin within walking distance from our home.
    We are: Two boys, 12 and 2 years old, a cat and a couple. Both of us grown-ups are working (I work from home) and as our home is an old big building with a large garden, we -and you (-; - will never get bored. We would appreciate your presence and your support in the garden, with cooking, with DIY Projects or / and with our two children.
    The type of your help depends on how long you are staying and on what talents / skills you bring with you.
