We are Manuel and Michaela with our two little boys Levin and Theo! We live together with our cat Memphis in a wooden blockhouse with a huge garden in an area close to the lake Attersee and the stunning landscape of the Salzkammergut. Manuel works for as a process and digitalisation manager, Michaela is founder , a local community project with an organic coffee shop and as a potter. We love outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and camping. We love music and handcrafting and enjoy time with friends and family, regional and organic food and a good glass of wine. Some time ago we travelled with our bikes through South America and the Balkan States. Before that we gained some workaway experience in Italy – we really enjoyed this way of travelling. We love to open our home for friendly and interested people!

We are very open-minded people with a good sense of humor. We will certainly learn from each other :)
Manuel works a lot with wood and Michaela with ceramics, we have our workshops at home. So if you are interested in it, we can show you our handcrafting. If you want to explore the mountains and lakes in our area we can show you some beautiful places.
Every human has certain skills - it depends on what you are interested in. Our home is quite huge and there are always things to do and projects we want to realise. Our garden always needs some love and attention. We have a vegetable garden and a lot of fruit trees. Typical things to do: Mowing, harvesting, cutting, processing fruits and vegetables. We plan some projects in the future: a little garden house, renew stairs, outdoor oven...
Inside you can help with general household stuff, refurbishing furniture, paint our garage.
We have two little children and if you are experienced and interested in it you are welcome to spend time with them.
A lot of the work that can be done requires 2 people, so we prefer to host a couple/two friends.
If you stay with us we offer you our guestroom with a double bed and your own bathroom. Food is provided - at very high quality a lot of stuff from our foodcoop, farmers market and our garden.
Food is vegetarian, mostly regional and organic and is provided. Cooking tasks are shared depending on the interest of the workawayer.
We live in a beautiful area 3 minutes away from the lake Attersee. You can do all types of outdoor activities. In summertime: swimming, sailing, biking, hiking, climbing, kajaking. You can use our bikes, camping equipment, kajak… In wintertime: Hiking, Skiing, cross-country skiing … Our area has in general a quite good infrastructure: The cities of Salzburg (40 Minutes) and Linz (35 Minutes) are close and Vienna is just two hours away. If you plan to arrive by car, there are enough parking lots around the house
