Hi all, we are Nevin and Christin, 30 years old from Germany/India, living in the countryside on a farm with cats, rabbits, horses, a lovely dog and loads of space and places for recreation. We have been running a small homestay in the mountains in India, where we too hosted some Workawayers and are now settled in Germany. In summer we are maintaining a small garden where we grow lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, beans, peas, herbs and more. We eat mostly vegetarian but are open to any form of diet, however, we expect the same. We are looking to connect with open-minded people who are reliable and not afraid to get their hands dirty.

We live in a tiny village with good access to two train stations that will bring you to Leipzig, Chemnitz or the surrounding areas. Leipzig is approx. 35km from here and reachable by train in 25min, by car in 40min. We can offer you bicycles to explore nearby places. If you have your own car that is a plus as there are many lakes, castles and hikes nearby. Supermarkets, doctors and other infrastructure is available in the next town. You are always welcome to cuddle with our pets and if you really know how to ride a horse you could of course help care for them and occasionally get into the saddle. We are really looking forward to meeting some open-minded and reliable people that are curious to explore and travel while being respectful towards their environment (animals, people and nature). We value honesty. Please only apply if you have some experience in renovation works. In exchange for your help, we offer a stay in the guesthouse or in your own van/tent if you prefer. If you would like to learn how to cook authentic Indian food or would like to learn German you are most welcome. There is a big kitchen, washing machine, fridge, bathroom, Wifi, dishwasher and other basic amenities. We will provide two meals, breakfast and lunch or dinner - both either South Indian or European and occasionally home-raised chicken if you like. You can of course prepare your own meals if you wish to. Let's talk about this in detail, we are flexible in this regard.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
We are living in a quite big place and there is always something to do. The main tasks would be gardening and general property maintenance in our private sphere. A small wooden house needs polishing and painting (it has been partly done already) and our private garden hut need clearing and cleaning too. If you know how to build a wooden outdoor shower or an outdoor kitchen for the garden, that would be amazing. From mid-May onwards we are looking for someone who can help us with the garden too. This means preparing garden beds, maybe some digging or adding some raised beds and planting and watering. We are trying to grow and eat what the garden provides, having healthy food on the table every day. You can of course help to feed our rabbits, cuddle with the cats or prepare meals. There will be some small work here and there and we are flexible in what you feel comfortable with.
There will be no help with the business/guest house
There is a small furnished wooden hut which has a fridge, electricity a small veranda and a compost toilet, surrounded by and under trees, with outside sitting and a small fire place. The next step is to build an outdoor shower and an outdoor kitchen, until then you could use the guest house if there are no guests or else our house for cooking and showering.
You can of course pitch your own tent under the apple trees.
Leipzig is only a stone's throw away and is offering parks, flea markets, culture, music and tiny cafés. In the south of Leipzig, there are many lakes and places to relax. The surrounding areas host big forests for hiking, more lakes and castles and are perfect for day trips. Saxony Switzerland and the Ore Mountains are other highlights for nature lovers not far from here. We are happy to help you on finding the activities that match you best.

Nous avons des animaux
Nous sommes fumeurs
We do have wifi which is, however, sometimes cut off for tiny intersections. It happens rarely and lasts only a few seconds, but it could affect the quality of your video call
We have a big meadow where you can park your mobile home while using the shower/washing machine/kitchen and other stuff in the house
We do have a lot of animals, which all live peacefully together. You are more than welcome to bring your own pet. Please keep in mind that it should be absolutely friendly with all other animals. We do have horses, a dog and lots of cats. A pet ex: chasing cats would be a big no.
