  • Descripción


    We are a married couple aged 65 and 72 with a big nice garden. Our four children left home and so we have enough space to host a couple or two friends. The little town we live in, named Hennef (Sieg), is near Cologne and Bonn.
    In our garden we like to grow a lot of different organic vegetables, but we also like our flowers and (fruit) trees.

    In our spare time we like to work in our garden. My husband is a hobby painter and I do voluntary work in schools helping children with troubles to learn reading and writing. Everyday we go for a walk in the nearby forest and try to be outside as often as possible. We also read a lot.
    We're interested in global politics and like to discuss and talk about everything. We would like to speak and improve our english. Therefore, we prefer to host people with english as mothertongue. However, we are also happy to help you practice and improve your german.

    We enjoy to cook and we often try new vegetarian or vegan recipes. Most of the meals we have here are vegetarian and of couse we'd be happy to host vegetarians. During summertime we make a lot of jam from fruits of our garden.

  • Ayuda


    We need some help in our garden for example clear up weeds, digging the soil, cut finished blosseming and work in the kitchen garden. The work depends on the season. We also have small painting projects like e.g. giving our conservatory a new coat of paint.
    We would like you to be used to physical work and have skills/knowledge in the topics mentioned above.
    Actually we need help with maling wood because we had to cut a cherry tree to the ground.
    You would work with an electric engine.

    Algo más...

    There's a bus stop within a walking distance (five minutes) which you can use to get to Cologne (35km) and Bonn (15km) quite easily. There are two supermarkets nearby.
    Interesting to visit in Hennef is the little town Blankenberg with a medieval background and an old castle ruin. All in all there are a lot of options to spend the day or even a couple of days in the surrounding area.
    We'd like to show our guests some points of interest close by.
