    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn new skills, since working on the old building always involves creativity and invention.
    You will be staying in a country side area, have contact with local community, learn about the history of the region and a very interresting history of the house. Also we have good sense of humor, like fun and movies - having a projector we will try to show you the best of Polish cinema!

    Our place is a partly ruined, 280 years old, villagehouse so this type of place always requires a lot of work - both in the garden and construction work inside the house (woodwork, stonework, plastering, fixing things).
    Some previous construcion work or gardening experience is necessary to be the part of the project.
