The Experience

At our Bed & Breakfast, we need help with cleaning, gardening, general maintenance and renovation/building of smaller projects. There is always enough to do when you have a big garden and a big house, and we think it's a great way to get some help and meet other cultures, in exchange of food, lodging, and insight into the Danish culture :)

I spent a little over a month at Helene's house and I can say that it was a very pleasant experience. She is a generous, patient person and welcomed me very well at her home. I had a really comfortable room. I thank Helene for the opportunity and say that I could return one day.

The surroundings have beautiful landscapes. It's a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Helene, Daniel and Bou were and are the best so far, the most kind people. I'm really grateful with the opportunity they gave me to help in the garden and enjoy in that beautiful place.

Hugs and best regards
