  • Description


    May 2021. Dear travellers, great news! If you are two people counting as one household (meaning people who live/travel together), we may accommodate you! ☺️

    Feb 2021. Dear travellers, due to Covid19 regulations we are not able to accommodate more than one person (until further notice, we'll keep you updated) and we can't accommodate you if you have to go into quarantine, i.e. if you come from abroad. So, at the moment we can only accommodate single travellers travelling from within Germany.
    We hope the situation will be different soon! Stay safe and healthy.

    We live in a village at the brink of the Oberpfälzer Wald near the German-Czech border. Weiden is about 20 minutes away by car. Two headstrong cats live with us in the house and two cute ponies living in our garden complete our little zoo. The forest starts behind our house and a small stream runs the length of our garden.
    We have two small children aged 3 years and 7 months. We love the outdoors and try to be as much as possible in our garden, taking care of the animals, playing in the sandbox, and trying to do some gardening. But there are always more ideas and projects than time =) Since we have been living here for 2.5 years, there is still lots to do in the garden and the house, which is why we are looking forward to some help.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are interested in all aspects of gardening and like sharing my knowledge and also learing new things.
    Since cooking and eating is important to us - we try to eat only organic food and vegetables and herbs from our garden - we'd love to share typical meals cooked in parts of Bavaria and are always interested in exchanging recipes.
    We are quite social people and like to talk. A lot. About nearly everything. So, feel free to join us at the fireplace on mild summer nights with a glass of wine or beer (typical for our region is the Zoigl beer and its tradition) and campfire bread - when we are not tired out by our kids ;)
    We try to make trips to historically and scenically interesting sites. Feel free to join us and learn something about the history of the region or its geography. The area is quite beautiful and interesting both historically and geologically since there has been and still is lots of granite mining including several old quarries in the vincinity. Also, there are many castle ruins, if you are interested in mediaeval history. A few of Germany's most beautiful geotopes are in the region. You can start directly from our house and do some hiking, biking or go swimming in the lake nearby.

    There're tasks around the garden like mowing the lawn and weeding, and daily chores like clearing away horse manure, but also projects like building new plant or vegetable beds. We've just begun re-doing our garden und still have to figure out how to plant vegetables efficiently.

    Recently we've begun restructuring some basic elements of our garden: the front lawn has been replaced by really really cool flower beds and a stoned path; and 40m of thuja hedge are gone and are being replaced by a fence. Still, some berry bushes need to be dug out and relocated (this autumn), my little daughter would love new beds for her strawberries, our insects still have no home (bug hotel) and 3 of our raised beds need to be cleared... the list is long and (my) ideas are plenty ;)

    We would like you to be flexible in terms of both hours a day and type of help. Basically, we would like you to help 4-5 hours a day and have the weekends off. But if there's a rather big project going on which needs to be finished quickly, you might need to help a full day (and then have one day off... ).

    On rainy days we renovate the house, which is mainly painting the walls and mounting new lamps.

    It would be really helpful, if you could look after the children, too. And if you want to cook, feel free to do so =)

    We have a guest room with a single bed and a bathroom with tub and shower, although this bathroom wouldn't be exclusively yours (We have our own one, but use the guest bathroom because it's on the lower level of house and easier accessible).
