We are living in a former 18th century farmhouse in the countryside 40 minutes by train north of Strasburg, 50 min. to Karlsruhe or Baden-Baden in Germany. The house is surrounded by a large garden in a picturesque alsatian village below the Vogesian mountains. We have reformed it, using traditionnal and organic material. We would appreciate help - 4hours/day - in the garden (mostly organic) i.e. mowing the grass, picking the fruit, helping tending the vegetable and flower garden etc, and some light maintenance work in- and outside the house, like painting shutters, according to the season. We ourselves travelled a lot around the world for many years; Now, Klaus enjoys gardening and music - there is a piano in the house; Valerie likes cooking, especially using the garden ressources, and all kind of needlework. We can communicate in french, german, english, italian and japanese. The next railway station, Soultz-sous-ForÍts, is located 5km away. Bicycles are avalaible, also a large room for yoga practice or Zazen meditation. Please note that the entire ground is a non-smoking area.
We have three friends welcoming helpers in the vicinity, so there is the opportunity to share or extend a stay with the other houses.
