    Hello everyone!
    We are Iris (28) , David (32), Felix (5), Norah (3) and Lotte (0) from the Netherlands and we own a really nice, small house with around 8 hectares of fields and forest in Balșa, Romania. Here we live with our dogs, cats, pigs, sheep, chicken, ducks, turkeys, goose, and guinea fowls.

    We've been looking for a piece of peace for a long time already and now five years ago we decided we found it.
    In the hills of Transylvania where it sometimes feels like time has stood still. In a good way!
    So many mysterious and interesting natural places around us we have yet to discover. What we've seen so far makes us confident we will have a never ending adventure here.
    We don't like to give a name to what exactly we are doing but we could try to make it a bit more clear. We live in a community. Not a community where everybody lives together and shares everything, but more a village with people that like each other and have more or less the same ideas about life. About why we live and what's important to teach our children. Within this village we can share, help and learn from each other. We're super happy that this community is really happening right now. Many people here now with many languages :) At this moment Davids father bought the neighboring house. His mother bought a house on 10 minutes walking and friends of us, with their daughter and son have built a house on land which we sold them and four other families bought their lands a little bit more up the hill. All the kids, 15 in total, vary from 0 to 13 years old. So it's the ideal place for families!
    We have a really nice spot over here and we welcome everyone to visit and help create an even more beautiful piece of earth.

    Things we would really like some help with are:

    - REPLACING THE ROOF MAN, ITS RAINING Inside! Just kidding. it just could use some insulation and some straightening up.
    - Constructing a cellar with a bathroom on top, attached to the house
    - Cooking (we love you if you can cook or like to do dishes)
    - Gathering Fire Woodz
    - A little bit of gardening
    - Feeding the animals and every now and then clearing out their night shelter

    David is very handy himself and we have all the tools we need to work efficiently.
    There will also be a lot of fun and games and music and dances and fun stuff to be done.
    All the other families here have many many projects. If we have things to do you don't like, or when we don't have anything to do at all, they could also use help. Everyone's on workaway too if u want to check them out just write us and we will link their profiles.


    Practical stuff:

    - We prefer a minimum stay of two weeks or longer. In our experience we noticed it takes around a week to get used to each other, after that it gets more relaxed and things start to run smoothly. If this is not possible for you, just let us know so we can figure something out.
    We are not to strict with most stuff as long as we're moving forward and getting things done everything is fine.

    - Your stay will most probably be in a guestroom, caravan (with woodstove) or tent that we will provide, including a comfy mattress and all the blankets needed. The main house is being renovated so there's (almost) no place to sleep inside unfortunately. But we'll discuss this before you arrive.

    - Our farm is situated on a 15 minute walk (2 km) uphill, away from the village.

    - The dog situation in our valley is something we should work on. There are many dogs who can not really get along. Especially ours (huge Caucasian shepherd) is very protective and doesn't easily accept other dogs. We've had some success with very obedient dogs but if you own a dog who is a little dominant it really won't work unfortunately.

    - We eat meat and milk and eggs. If you are eating vegan or vegetarian we'll have to get creative but it's been done before, no big deal!

    - And last but not least: We are not vaccinated and will never be. So if you care about that don't bother writing us :)

    This area is very beautiful and i am sure we have not discovered all of it ourselves. We are not that far from Deva and Hunedoara which both have big castles.
    There's a beautiful walk you can have, it goes through the river in the village, through the hills, to another village. There's a big cave to explore.
    We have bicycles which you could borrow if you want to.
