Area: South Bohemia, Ceske BudejoviceWe, Henk and Janny, from the Netherlands, in 2004 bought a rundown farm in the Czech Republic. The farm is about 400 years old and built in South Bohemian Baroque style. Since 2004 we have restored the farmhouse and built to our campsite. The farm with the surrounding plots are located in the beautiful hilly landscape of South Bohemia. There are beautiful views over the fields and forests. Since 2005 we welcome our guests on our historic farm. Most guests were Dutch, but there are also guests from England, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, France and also from the Czech Republic itself. In the years between 2004 and now the building has become very beautiful but still there are many things to refurbish and maintain.
Area: BrandenburgI live with my daughter (born 2003 in this house), a dog and two cats in a big house within a little village, about 1h in the west of berlin. We grow our own vegetables in a big garden and there is a lot of work to renovate the house- I want to prepare it for guests and healing work. Around the house there are many corners we have to work on, too. We go for firewood in the own forest and prepare it ourselves. We like our simple way of life- and we want to share it with other people and are interested in other cultures, too. If you like this- we will welcome you being our guest! In spare time it's the possibility to enjoy the nature around, to relax, to read, use computer,...but we don't have tv. next little city is about 20km away and it is difficult to reach without car. if there are free days it is possible to have daily tours to Berlin by train, to Havelberg or through the forests around by bicycle. You can also borrow a canoe and go by canoe on the river Dosse.
Area: South AustraliaWe live between Adelaide and Melbourne in what was once a desert. Now it is green, and much has been learnt about farming in this unique land of australia! Come and learn a little :) We love to share life with you. Be ready to jump on the ute, or tractor, or on the motorbike to see a little different side of Australia. Our food is simple, but certainly enough. We share what we have. Your challenge is to gain the trust of mum and dad (and understand their 'australian - and BE understood!!) so that they have a day off while you are here!! It will be great to have you. Come for a week, with a view to 2.
