    We bring good life in a nearly 400 years old stylish house with a huge wild garden: the journey is the reward. Good atmosphere, conserving the history of the house. We love doing this with great passion, together, with lots of fun and with the help of international workawayers. We have lots of rooms to sleep . There are many different tasks to do in the house, made of wood and stone, because, since nearly 15 years it has been not maintained. But the house is already nice and warm by the use of 4 chimneys and comfortable with bathrooms etc.

    To my person: I am Indian origin, living since 35 years in Germany, married with a German , at present my husband is often working out of country and sometime he is traveling. I have been teaching and training international cookery in many countries and have renovated other objects in Germany and around the world.

    Its an old house with a set of different rooms to sleep (WiFi everywhere). The location is just 15 km away from the city of Hamburg (by bus) The name of the village on the border of Hamburg is named Estebrügge. This is a very traditional tiny place. There are many rooms in our house, the kitchen and beautiful dining rooms are ready. The volunteer usually join us for meals, with our supper in the evening or whenever. I love cooking, but right now i spend too much of time working in the house, hope together we will improve this. We have always lots of fun with our work-awayers. See the photos in the gallery.
    It is a must, that every workawayer have to cook there original home town supper (at least once if you want it can be more ) during there stay with us, we don't mind about the taste or perfection or no perfection of your supper, we all always liked it.
