About our home

The "Villa Viva" was build in approx. 1913. It is a wonderful old house, which we redecorated in 2002. The house has approx 300 m² livingspace. It has a large livingroom with a fireplace, an office with Internet access (there is W-LAN in the whole house). There is a Guest-toilet downstairs and of course the kitchen, which has all modern amenities, you will need (like big American fridge, microwave, Espresso-machine etc.) and enough space for 10 people! Opposite to the kitchen is the newly decorated dining room. From the kitchen you can walk on the deck, have a BBQ and sit nearly in the green. Upstairs there are 4 sleepingrooms, each with their own bathroom. We run a little B&B - have a look at the Homepage! It makes an unsimultaneous exchange possible but we'd rather prefer a simulteanous exchange because of the cats! In the cellar you will find the washingmachine and the dryer. The furniture is a mixture of antique (art nouveau from the 1850's) and modern style. There is also a large garden with BBQ and plenty of space for games or just relaxing. There are also some bikes which you can use.


More about us

  1. We can possibly include a car (Volvo D5) in an simulteanous exchange. Please do not bring pets as we have two cats! We have plenty of maps and brochures here and we will explain everything to you before we leave you alone! Joeran is a 50 year old flight operation officer at the Lufthansa Flight Training Center in Bremen and I (49) run the B&B! Before that I used to work for years at EADS, which is the European space industrie. Our daugther is grown up and is not travelling with us anymore. We have had a few exchanges (Australia, Canada, USA, Brazil). We love music (especially Jazz for Jöran and every kind with rhytm for me!), I have my own horse and ride every second day as long as the house does not want me to do anything! Also I give gym classes and love to run in the nearby forrest. We also love good food and wine and meeting people from other cultures. We love to exchange to cities in Germany or Europe (Paris, London, Roma, Venice etc.) for longer weekends. We are open to any destination! This summer we won't travel anywhere except paris in April as we plan our worldtrip at the end of the year. But - please ask! I answer to every offer and maybe we can arrange something!

Where is it?


Bassum is approx. 25 km south of Bremen (the nearest airport), which is one of the old Hanse towns. Like Hamburg which is approx. 120 km far north. Also you can have daytrips to Amsterdam (4 hours) or Groningen (1 1/2 hours) in the Netherlands or the isles in the North sea (2 hours) or the Baltic seaside (e.g. Lubeck 3 hours). But even in our nearest neighbourhood there is plenty to do and see! Bassum has some nice restaurants, shops and a lovely nature public pool, a little private zoo for the kids and a beautiful old "Stift", which was build in the 1400'. On the way to Bremen you will find several outlets (like Adidas, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, Marco Polo, Esprit etc.). Hamburg and other interesting cities are in driving distance. Good for daytrips.
