    Description

    Dear all

    We receive visitors, but we also take corona seriously. My children have asthma, and we have old relatives. So we are careful and will ask you to be careful too, while living with us.

    The job in our place is daily house hold chores like cleaning and help with the animals. And teaching my 12 year old daughter Math and German.

    We prefer couples, friends or workawayers, who are very independent, since I don't have very much time to talk and show you around. We have some bikes, you can borrow, but most of the transport will be hiking, public transport, or you can borrow my car (just fill it up again after, diesel) and take some sight seeing trips in the area, when I don't use it for work.

    We usually feed the animals about 6.30, have breakfast at 7 am and then take care of our work and studies.
    We live in a village called Varnæs in the southern part of Jutland, Denmark, near the German border. There is bus connection to Aabenraa and Sønderborg, and a beautiful landscape with beaches and forests in the back yard.

    It's a good place to hike, if you like the Danish nature. And you can always use us as a base, while you take trips to different places in Denmark or North Germany.

    I am a single mother, who work as a pastor in the Lutheran church. My three daughters are 19, 16 and 12. The eldest has moved to Copenhagen to study. The second is studying in Oxford 2020/2021. The youngest lives with me.

    We are an active and creative family, who like music, hiking, travelling and new experiences. We are nice and flexible.
    We don't have a specific project. But I am not very organised and handy, so I could use some practical help with household tasks, organizing stuff, and improving our home with e.g. woodwork and sewing (My daughter would love to learn some practical skills from you. She is very nice and speaks English).

    If I don't need help, I will be glad, if you can give a hand to my very nice older parents (my mother is 69 and has partially lost her sight, and my father is 78) and my grandmother (who is 97 years old). They live nearby and are taking care of house and garden themselves. They always could need a helping hand with house and garden. They speak English and German. My friend Marianne, who has a horse farm, also needs help with her farm from time to time.

    You will be welcomed as a member of the family, while living here. If you want, we will be happy to introduce you to hobbies and activities in the cities nearby, according to your wishes.
    You can be as private as you want. Some might only need a bed, and take care of themselves, when the practical tasks are done. Others might want to be a part of our family and activities.

    We serve all kinds of foods, including vegetarian. As a single mother I don't have much money, so we live on a low budget, but you are welcome to share what is ours, while living with us.

    We are not smokers, and it is not allowed to smoke indoors.

    We have rabbits, dwarf hamster and cat.

    We look forward to meet you :-)

    Best regards Sidsel (mother) and Signe (youngest daughter)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a funny, warm and engaged family, who know a lot of people and can help you getting a network here.
    We live close to the nature and to public transports, so you will be able to go out and see a lot of things easily. We can help you finding good tours.

    We are adventurous and would love to learn about your culture, and teach you about ours, if you like. We live close to the German border in a rural area with "typically" Danish families. Through my job and our neighborhood, you will meet the Danish culture. If you want, you are welcome to participate in the activities around the church, where I am a pastor. It is mainly sunday services, but also some teaching, visiting people, meetings etc. Being a Christian is NOT necessary to stay with our family - we are a pastor's family, but we love diversity and the cultural exchange.

  • Aide

    Aide

    All kinds of hand crafts and maintenance of the farm and my parents' home.

    Housework like cleaning and tidying up, sewing curtains, helping my parents and grandmother with their home and my friend with her farm. Sometimes other tasks for family members who need a hand, but only after appointment with you.

    If you have some practical or artificial skills, you would like to teach my daughter, she would love to learn something new.

    We are flexible, so you can make your tasks whenever on the day is most comfortable for you.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    A bed room, where you can withdraw and have some privacy. If you come two or more, we will find extra mattresses for you, and maybe use one of the living rooms with couches.
    We are quite flexible, as long as you smoke outside and are not extremely noisy. (You are welcome to practise any instrument and invite friends, but not so welcome to play loud music very often, since we like quietness).

    We live in a big old parsonage from 1779 with a huge garden. The gardener from the church is cutting the grass. We live on a road 10 min. walk from the village, where there are busses. We also have a car and can help you with transport for catching trains and busses. When I don't use the car, you can borrow it, but please pay for the fuel. There are many nice places to hike in our area.

    We eat breakfast together at 7 am, before the children go to school. Lunch when we are hungry (usually about 12-13 and dinner about 6 pm. We like to make healthy and green food, mainly vegetarian. We are very flexible about your needs. If you want expensive foods, please help with buying foods sometimes, since we live on a low budget.

    My youngest daughter comes home from school about 2-3 pm. I study and work at home.

    There is a bus close to, where we live. We can also bring you to the bus- or train station, so you can get around. It is also possible to rent a cheap car. I have a car myself, so I will be glad to drive you on tours, when I don't have too much work. If you like horse riding, culture, night life or whatever, I can help you getting around and finding the programmes and good places to go.

    I have a park place outside our parsonage with place for app 3-4 cars. So it should be possible for a normal campervan or a motorhome to stay there.
