This year we need someone to help us prepare the house for sale. We want someone to help us sell some of the contents online and directly, so a good knowledge of German is essential. We are an English couple who now live in Germany along with Purdy the Dalmatian dog, a few sheep, rabbits, hens, a big veg patch, lots of fruit trees etc. We are in an undiscovered part of Germany east of Dresden. The village of Cunewalde is said to be the most beautiful valley in Saxony. Lots of walking/cycling through forest trails and open fields. Bautzen (a wonderful medieval town) is a 20 min bus-ride away. Berlin 2 and a half hours by car and Prague a little closer.
Having people to stay is great. We are used to a big family (all back in the UK) We also had language exchange students for many years. You will also have, of course, your own room.
We tend to work for the first few hours of the day, then break for breakfast at 10.30. We then work again or we may take you out for a trip, or have free time (in the hottest bit of the day. Evening jobs lasting an hour or so sometimes, then a family meal. A total of four to five hours a day but we are VERY flexible. This pattern suits us well...there are other tea and cake breaks so you will not go hungry!
I need you to be willing to do the four or occasionally five hours of work daily, that I ask of you without supervision as I have a part-time teaching job. (Peter is home if you need to check on anything)

This year we need someone to help us sell our stuff. We need a German speaker to help us sell online and directly. We are also preparing the house and garden for sale, so lots of sorting out and making things look good. As well of course with taking care of the animals and gardens.
Volunteers can be accommodated in the house. We have separate accommodation for people staying including the use of a separate bathroom. We also have a caravan for people who would rather stay outdoors.
We are very friendly people, however if you're hoping to learn German from us then you'd be disappointed. We have German friends who speak little or no English and communicate with them in pidgen German or sign language. It works for us.

I house-sit Mel and Pete farm in Cunewalde in April 2015. It was my first workaway experience.
All the animals were friendly and got used to a new farmer (me) very easily. Well leaving out the incident on the first day alone, when Scooby (the horse) galloped out of the gate into the traffic road. All ended well,
She is a nice host,and teach us many thing about gardening and cooking. She is also a good cooker.
One day you need to work 4 hour 30 minutes, and the leisure time you can walk to forest with cute dog.
If you want to look for workaway, it is a nice place to stay and learn.
And sometimes they took me with them to some small towns in Poland or Czech Republic.
Anyway, this is a good workaway to stay.
I mainly worked on the barn, and I hope everything is still standing! However, my stay was much more than work, Melanie was a great guide and she helped me to discover the area. I
We started to go to Germany, and arrived in a little English island. We spent two very good weeks there. Melanie was taking care of Csongor like a good hearted grandmother. It was interesting to see a working garden with raised garden beds, and to see how an English farm is working. The work was very interesting, and of great variety. Attila’s
