  • Description

    Description

    we are a family with two parents, one grandma and two children (3 and 1 years), originated in germany, and we found our home in the mountains in Valea Babii near Hunedoara, Romania.
    In this Ecovillage are few other projects and there is still spaces for more people to come and settle.

    we are chaotic, productive, undogmatic, natural, talented, simple, creative, open, learning, not perfect.

    theres big gardens, two small old houses, a little tractor, a cow, a horse, a bunch of chicken, a cat, a lot of forest, hayland, a little river running next to the house and a very muddy road.

    we are located in the most wonderful remote original beautiful mountainlandscape and a neighborhood of original old fashioned romanian farmers and shepards.

    we have at the moment one guest room, some tents and barns with hay where guests can stay.
    we can improve it together!

    we grow and process as much as we can of what we need. with our own hands work , help of technology, this fertile earth and the life force of nature.
    we have many many ideas for projects for the future. and many projects running now.
    there is always plenty of things to do.

    We want to welcome anyone who feel like coming.
    we dont offer a hotel-like comfort, very basic and pretty wild is the life up here.
    so be prepared for a wild experience. also we people are a bit wild. :-)

    there are no shops, no hospital, no public transpot nearby.
    washing only with natural soap (we can provide).
    we are still in the construction phase, things are still evolving, nothing is perfect.
    if you like to live wild and spontaniously, this will be the right place for you.

    in winter it can get extremly cold, the space inside is very limited, no more running water and sometimes also limited transport possibilities, be aware of that if you plan to come in winter.

    we prefer if people can stay longer than a week because usually it takes time to tune in and arrive together.

    NATURE
    with its beauty and its challenges
    its force of growth and destruction.
    nothing is safe.
    we are alive.
    we are creators within this creation.
    we learn. and we fail.
    we hope we humans with this earth
    are going to find our way towards
    a healthy ecosystem planet
    in peace, love and harmony.
