Grappe harvest (september) reparing pens of sheep and horses (spring) helping at the winebar and bistrot (mai and october). And always somewhere something to paint, to brush, to renove, also antique furnitures (we love it)

Your hosts are two alsatians in their late 50s starting organic farming in 1999 and very involved in a lot of regional networks. Actually we experience permaculture, coworking and home rentals with shared services (holiday guests, long term residents, roomshare for learners, students etc. We love good food, travelling, etc

We have a one week trial period - which can be extended if we all agree.

We have a nice flat of 2 rooms with bathroom and kitchen available for HelpX guests

WORK REQUIREMENTS - Depending on the skills you have, you will be required to work up 4-5 hours per day in return for the flat, access to internet, bicycles. Meals will either be made for you or most ingredients are provided for you to prepare meals.

We just start the Helping experience and look forward to welcoming HelpX helpers

Katzenthal is a very small village - if you are after nightlife and excitement, this isn't the place for you. If you enjoy walks, hikes, beautiful countryside and views, then you will love our paradise.

There is so much to do around here like outdoor activities -hiking,biking,horseback riding but also large cultural offer as concerts, exhibitions, festivals. It really is a beautiful area in the very heart of european culture. We love it and we hope you too !!
