our carma

I am Manu, a sleep scientist teaching at the University of Salzburg and as a “break” from science I am also working as a psychotherapist. So don’t be surprised that, when you will be staying here, you won’t really see me, because I will wake up after breakfast and come home after dinner.

Apart from the serious work stuff, I enjoy life as much as possible, specially by travelling to the South or at least somewhere where isn´t too much snow. I like it easy and simple...being more interested in knowing “real life” and not the “touristic illusions”, meeting the locals and interesting people that are crossing my way. My son Nathan is accompying me on my life trip:)

Besides travelling I like tennis, skiing, dancing and another ways to keep me active and in shape. I prefer to watch sport events on tv – football, formula 1, skiing, tennis etc.- instead of action or blood movies or reality soaps.

I also like to be surrounded by my friends...that’s why I organise all kind of Motto Parties in my house, summer or winter doesn’t matter, because I have an old carpenter’s room where there is enough space for all of us to dance and drink ;)


So my philosophy is to be as normal as possible, open, friendly, easy going as possible.... showing my guests our surroundings from a local point of view....


How did I get to this idea?...by chance.....or better said “Lonely Planet Brazil”. I have read about the Brazilian version of “B&B” called “Cama e Cafe”, stayed in 2 of the homes of the residents of Santa Teresa district.....I liked it so much that I thought “why not in Salzburg”?
So if you like this kind of “combi-package”, don’t hesitate to contact me or even pay me a visit.
