Our property's name means 'tranquility'/'calm’. Everyone who has stayed here has said the property is well named. It would also have been well named if we had simply called it 'beautiful'. My wife, Yael, and I are not farmers. We allow a farmer to use two thirds of our property to graze sheep, but he does this only some of each year.
I am a writer and philosopher - my wikipedia link ( Yael is a retired schoolteacher. I speak German reasonably.
We are located in the Gold Fields region of Central Victoria, 11km from Maldon, a lovingly preserved heritage village ( The landscape of the area is beautifully captured in a film of my book, Romulus, My Father, which stars Eric Bana and Franka Potente (

We would like a couple to live with Yael and I, in the house, for ten days or two weeks, each person of the couple working for twenty hours per week, sanding house timbers (doors, window sills etc) and helping to rid of the property of weeds. The work is not hard and we are flexible about how the hours are divided. Most of the time Yael will cook, at other times we might ask helpers to cook. We, of course, will provide food. It is essential that helpers have a car.
