  • Description


    We are a mix german-spanish couple that loves travelling and having interaction with other cultures and people. We have a nice country house near to hamburg and the sea and like hosting open minded guests.
    We started a while ago with a veggies organic garden: 250 square meters of healthy food. We also have four cute chicken. Our peaceful cat Jogi, takes care of us all :).
    We recently built up a nice wooden house and can host some nature lovers who are willing to help with regular vegetable garden duties and light repairs like painting etc...
    We love cooking so we often make fire and prepare our veggies or make self dough for pizza or paella, etc, etc

    Happy to see you soon!
    Verena and Marcos
