Hello! We are a little family with two kids- boys 5 and 8 years old. I (hostess) am 32 years old and my husband is 34 years old. We have a cat and a five chickens.
We live in South-Estonia- just 5 km from city Tartu. Indeed we live so near to the city, we have very private place next to the forest and quite far from the neighbors.
We bought this place a year ago and now we are reconstructing the house and fixing up the garden. We have done a lot of work and hope to finish building the second floor in autumn.
We grow some vegetables and we have garden with apple trees, pear trees and some berry bushes.
We have a very quiet and beautiful place here. There is a forests around and we have a two lakes with sandy beach just 3 km far. We do have bikes, so you can borrow some, if you like to go to swim or just ride somewhere. Of course when it is hot, we can go all together with car.
We dry to rest also after working hard- then we grill or go somewhere with family. We like to rest at home the most, but if there something very interesting going around, then we go and take you with us if you would like :)

Help in the house
You can practice a english, can learn about Estonian nature, culture. You can learn about living in the countryside.
It would be awesome, if you play some instrument. It would be cool to sing and play instruments around the campfire. Hostess plays a little bit quitar and sing along.
Mostly we need help with building, gardening and mowing the lawn. Sometimes it would be nice if you can help with cooking.
Estonian, english, a little bit of italian.
The house is big, but as we reconstructing here, then we can offer you big soft sleeping place in hayloft, next to the house. Believe me, if you are not very demanding, it is very enjoyable.
The meals are with family. There is an outdoor washing possibility and the shower is inside the house.
The bus station is 2 km from us. Busses goes once in a hour and its free drive to the Tartu city. There is a lot of activity in Tartu. You can go to swim (with bike) to the Kõrveküla lake or just hang in the forest.
