We are a family with 5 kids who are young teenagers and young adulds (ages 11-20). 2-3 kids live with us. The older ones already moved out and this is why we have a lot of free space in our old farmhouse, which we bought two and a half years ago and restored it ever since.
We love the countryside and being closer to nature. Ist is an idyllic and calm place with old grown trees 4000 square meters of land.
I have bult my own small creative business here at the farm , which doesn‘t leave much time for household chores or gardening and we would like you to help us out with this.
What you get is the chance to live with a warm and welcoming family on the countryside near Leipzig.
We speak English fluently and come from a multi cultural work background . We love working with people from all over the world and are always excited to meet new people and to learn more about all the different aspects of foreign culture.
We both spend time abroad (UK and US) when we were in our early twenties and are therefore experienced about advantages and challenges of living in a foreign country.
Also, we love pets and we have 5 cats and a black lab.
Our farm is surrounded by a small village with around 180 citizens embedded in a landscape of farmland, woods and hills, so there is a lot to discover for you, if you love nature.
In our creative workshop, you can work on your own creative projects. We have a high-end sewing and embroidery machine, Wood-turning machine and much more.
But still, the city of Leipzig can be reached within 45 minutes (train ride from Wurzen only 20 minutes). There is a bus station in our village. If you are at least 25, you can use our car occassionally (insurance regulations).
You will have your own room , a shared bathroom and meals.
Let‘s get in touch if you think we might be the right host family for you!

WE DO NOT RUN A FARM BUSINESS. We need help with gardening (vegetables), doing the laundry, cooking and cleaning the house. There are also DIY projects I need help with, when my husband is away at the office during the day. It would be great if our kids could practice their English with you.
