The Experience

This coming months (september till februari) I (Yvon) will be alone on the farm since Sabine is working in Holland. So I really can use some helping hands with preparing the farm for winter. All kind of different tasks will be in order. Like painting, mowing, preparing the greenhouse/garden for wintersleep, construction work, taking care of the animals, cleaning etc...

My experience in the guest house was so perfect, that this text is not enough to describe my feelings :) I felt calm, productive and creative and I loved these 2 weeks. Yvon and Sabina are amazing! They explained everything perfectly to me and made me feel like a friend. I didn't think before that the hosts will be so nice and welcoming! And the place is like a the guest house paradise, the animals of the farm are so cute and the sounds of the birds and the small river next to the place made me relax and escape from reality. 🦋💐

We really miss the amazing hostess already. It was a wonderful experience. We shared pleasant moments and we were able to learn a lot. The farm is an incredible place, I recommend it to anyone who wants to disconnect from life in the city and connect with themselves and the impressive nature that surrounds the place. Very grateful with for everything!!!

It is a unique experience, particularly it made me find myself, challenging myself through the different jobs. so far the best experience to learn and find oneself thanks to work, animals and landscapes.

This was an amazing experience in a very beautiful and relaxing place in the guest house. If you like nature trails, animals, and want a calm place to rest your mind, this is the place for you. It was very relaxing to work with the soil while hearing the birds. It was also my first time with the machine to cut grass and I really liked it. Yvonne and Sabine were very kind and friendly! I already miss Beau, the happy dog that became my new best friend and with whom I had long walks. Thank you very much for everything! Wishing you luck and success 🙂
