  • Description


    We are a French-German-American family of 4 living in a lovely house up in the hill, overlooking the Oslo fjord.

    The old kid goes to kindergarten; the young one will (we expect) from January. During daycare hours, we (the parents) mostly try to get their yoga practice and work done.

    - The famous Holmenkollen ski jump and the forest (Nordmarka) are in our backyard and you have direct access to hundreds of km of trails with an amazing wilderness.
    - The house is a 2 min walk to the subway that brings you to the city center on a direct line, or 15-30min by bike.
    - The garden is inhabited by 4 chickens, which are (most of the time) lovingly taken care of by a Border Collie.

    You can see, there's quite a bit going on, and there are lots of things to do -- if you fit in, drop us a line!

    We are outdoor lovers, avid cross country skiers, randonnee skiers, rock climbers, kite surfers, backpackers, sailers, and just love anything related to being outside and nature. We love food and cooking, and play various music instruments. We have lived in California and Michigan, as well as various countries in southern Europe and in Asia, before moving to Norway three years ago. We practice yoga, mostly eat vegetarian (but being vegetarian is not a requirement), and aim to provide an accepting and non-judgemental place for people to grow.

  • Aide


    We both work full time and are looking for some help with basic house chores (preparing meals, cleaning, laundry), and taking care our 4.5-year old (reading to him and taking him outside for walks in the forest) and almost-one-year old (he has less sophisticated needs). At home, we try to speak German, but also speak English, French, and Norwegian.

    Oslo is a fantastic city, with lots of parks and great public transport, culture, the fjord, surrounding hills and wilderness. Whether you like city life or being in the wilderness, you have it in Oslo, and in particular when you live next to the forest.
