We are a family-like group of five living in a beautiful, big place. In addition we have up to three people living in and around the house with us. There are two "tiny houses" and one cabin on our ground. The place is located peacefully 300 yards off the village right at the edge of the woods, surrounded by 5500m2 of property ground. We (try to) grow vegetables, do keep hens and cats while always having some minor or major to build, renovate or create in the house and outside. There are two children: Jette, five, and Enno, three, the younger one is what you call a "slow developer" and has some lovely nurses caring for him.
We like to make our home feel like being on holiday. But in our rare "free time" we love to experience and explore nature, play with the kids, excercise, are creative or renovate/build something in and around the house. The woods are vast and you can walk for hours. We love to have people around and friends on visit. So here's always something going on.

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
Marieke is actually a wilderness educator at heart but she earns money being an English and biology teacher. She has also worked as a baker and pastry cook for some time. Anders knows a lot of our local plants and mushrooms, but he could also teach you how to play the piano. We are both self-trained in several DIY and arty fields like sewing or painting, we have equipment for pottery, enamel, a library and of course a big and well-equipped workshop.

For spring we would very much appreciate your help outside in the garden and on the ground. The garden beds are waiting for their seeds and plants, the grass grows faster than it can be cut... Also we plan to improve some things on the yard, moving wood building seating areas etc.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
I would like to advance my French and Spanish, I am a professional English teacher and have experience in teaching German as a second lanuguage.
In the main house we have a generous guest room with a double bed, a big sofa and a desk. Next to it there is a simple but private bathroom and also a sauna. The room is on the ground floor, while all other shared rooms are above, so it’s very private if you want it to be. The large kitchen for everyone is up the stairs on the same floor as the living room and the library. There is a small garden cabin with a lovely alcove to sleep in and a veranda in the garden. At least one of the tiny houses is free for your stay at the moment.
We receive our groceries mainly from a local organic farm delivery and like to cook freshly, if time allows. We don't eat meat. We take turns in preparing meals and clearing the kitchen afterwards and love to have a big table full of hungry people.
We both work (homeoffice as well as real office) and the children are in childcare during the week. Public transport to Kassel exists, but it is rare and slow. We have bikes, pedelecs and cars for closer and further exploration and for your use as well. Kassel offers some cultural attraction as does Melsungen a smaller town nearby offering ice cream parlors and a weekly market. Groceries are available some kilometers away.

Living in nature has so many benefits and some, well...difficulties. Usually we have a stable Wifi connection but still waiting for glass fiber. So one out of thirty days there can be a day of bad internet connection.

Thank you for all the great time with you, your family and all people around. It was my pleasure to help you with some tasks around your house and I really enjoyed to do it. The place where you live is beautiful, full of love and peace and the "king size" room which I had was amazing.
