  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 with 2 grown up kids, who moved from capital city Bucharest ( kids are already back in Bucharest ) to a small village in rural Transylvania in 2010. Since then, we try to live our life as simple as possible, working a small garden, baking bread, taking care of few sheep & dogs & cats and enjoying the peacefulness of our old apple tree orchard.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because our region it's considered one of the main cradles of our nation, exploring and learning about Romanian culture, traditions and history and about Transylvania in particular, it's what we'd like to see from our volunteers.

    While I'm busy baking bread and / or my wife is at work, someone else should cover different tasks around the house. There are 4 main areas where we might use your help:

    1 - In the garden: sowing, planting. weeding, watering vegetables, depends of the time of the year you'll be here. This includes but not limited to preparing plant beds (April), planting (till May), weeding (April - Sept), watering (April-Sept), making winter preserves (July to September).

    2 - With animals: if our sheep feels comfortable with you, you'll be asked to take them out and have a relaxed time watching them grazing the surrounding pasture in the old apple trees orchard.

    3 - Small building projects: depending on the skills of the volunteers, I'll might need a helping hand to finish the facade of our house and the new room for future volunteers, building another shelter for sheep or a small terrace for the caravan. You should know I'm working mainly with wood.

    4 - Generally help with the household: set the meals, doing dishes, cleaning communal spaces.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our volunteers will be accommodated in a big caravan ( trailer ) in a good condition ( usually is used for our paying guests. ) It has 3 separate rooms ( one dining / living area + kitchen, middle room with bunk beds and a bedroom with a double size bed ) and because it's German built, it's very well organised. Although it can accommodate up to 8 people, in order to keep our volunteers privacy, we can host max 2 people at one time and we expect to keep the caravan not just clean but also tidy.

    Outside the caravan you'l find a solar heated shower ( for hot summer days ) and the compost toilet with sawdust and a separator just for your use and you should feel comfortable using such a toilet. The rest of the year we have a wood fired heated shower inside the house. We have a laundry machine that you can use too.

    What else ...

    In your time off you can choose to visit the ancient and medieval churches and castles, to climb the rocks of Retezat peaks, to emerge in our culture meeting some of our neighbors and friends or just simply to walk through our beautiful region. The next town is 15 minutes away with the minibus which comes 6 times / day just outside our house.
