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-Forêts, is located 5km away. Bicycles are avalaible, also a large ro... more inside

We have room from the 21 to the 27th of octobre.

We are situated in the heart of the North Vosges, between Wissembourg and Bitche, a few kilometres from Niederbronn-les-Bains, in the small village of Obersteinbach. In our vicinity there are fortified castle ruins, rock-climbing sites; walking trails; mountainbike circuits and so on. Our house is surrounded by all of this.

Maïlis and I (and our two cats, Mademoiselle and Gentleman) have always lived in this region, and after travelling and helpexchanging a great deal, we acquired a house on two hectares with a spring, a stream, a large pond and some woodlands.

Everything we plan is designed to renew Nature’s dominance here. We wish to restructure the area to enable amphibians, insects, birds, small mammals and all living creatures to recolonise the area. We’ve just planted 15 fruit trees. We are starting a vegetable garden. We need to restore the pond edges and wetlands. Consequently, there is a lot to do! Any help would be ... more inside

We may host a very few times each year. We are mostly interested in meeting foodies and people interested in viticulture. We are interested in cultural exchange: learning about children education and food habit in your country. Cooking one of your favorite recipes would be great. This is a tiny wine estate, in the build up stage. You can help us with daily tasks - weeding, pruning, planting, labelling, cooking, baby sitting, writing blogs, making videos, taking pictures, creating content. (3 days / 6 mornings/afternoons a week).

Our place is perfect if you travel with your bike and wish to cycle around (either road bike or mountain bike). We can host you in a separate appartment upstairs from our's.

The three of us inhabit a farm building in a quiet 1600-inhabitant-township, half an hour drive from Strasbourg and Germany. The place can be reached with public transportations and more easily by car or by bike. We do not work on sundays. We'll provide food, drinks, sheets, blanke... more inside

We are a farmer family, we are working on the production and direct sale of fruits and vegetables. We live together on the farm inside a Alsatian village close to Strasbourg. In the past, I worked as scientist during some years in universities and industries and decided some time ago to take over the small farm of my parents (they are retired but still help a lot). My partner Caroline is also helping, however she works part time somewhere else and is also taking care of our one year old daughter Mathilde. Caroline and Mathilde are away 3 days per week. We produce fruits and vegetables and sell them directly at home and on markets close to Strasbourg. Our biggest productions are strawberry, apples, potatoes, tomato, salad but we are producing a lot of other kind of vegetables in our fields and greenhouses. More about the farm: it is not an organic farm but we use pesticides as little as possible. We use black plastic cover to avoid weed growing and weeding is mostly done mechanically... more inside
