  • Description


    🥳🎆**2024 special: we'd love to find a long-term help with the children, who also likes to help in our family domain. Some pocket money for 5+ months stay is possible**

    We, Rein (36) and Charlie (35), are constantly inspired by our shining lights, our daughter Astara (4), boy Emrys (2) and baby girl Serafina (0). We do homeschooling and love to involve other people and their culture and experience into their lives.

    We have our own 5-hectare farm with food-forest and three lakes in the Netherlands, of which one hectare is a food-forest started in 2020, and we have two separate paddock-paradises (one for male and other for female horses). We have a 10+ horses (not all ours), at least 15 adult chickens (and sometimes chicks too), a dog, 3 cats and lots of small wildlife in our food-forest.

    We have a podcast on our life in our family domain on YouTube, ask us for the link.

    We share our plot with Charlie's mother, who lives in a separate part of the farmhouse. And my mother in a separate little cabin. We used to have a group accommodation that included rooms upstairs and a large living space, of which the latter has unfortunately burned down. The good news is that we still have a few of extra bedrooms upstairs that guests can use.

    We'd love to host individuals or families who want to enjoy, learn and give back by working with us (see below). Very likely you'll have your own room. We can eat together (vegetarian and gluten free). We don't drink alcohol, do drugs or smoke and would appreciate to find like-minded people.

    Note that in the winter the bedrooms are not heated and can be cold. Obviously there's extra blankets and downstairs it's always warm. You'll probably want to share the common space more on the cold season :)

    Don't forget that especially in the wet seasons you'll need good clothing and good (rain) boots. We have some spares, but not all sizes

    Autres infos...

    We are located 3 minutes by car from Langeveen (cafe, snackbar, restaurant) and 5 minutes from Geesteren (closest supermarket and other shops). It's 10-15 minutes to other bigger towns/cities. We have bikes, with which you can reach the supermarket. The place is hard to reach with public transportation, but we can get you in Geesteren bus station if needed. There's a bunch of tourist stuff to do in this area. It's a great area for walking and hiking. By bike you can see even more. Within 30-40 minute drive there's some great things like Preston Palace (tropical swimming paradise + bowling + more), great sauna, big public lakes, great natural parcs, horse-back riding and more. A bit further you can go to things like the zoo in Emmen.
