    Hi everyone! :)
    We are a young family of four - Libor (34), Anna (32), Ferdinand (3) and Hugo (half year). Other members are 2 siberian cats Bonnie and Hercule living indoor. Outdoor - 6 goats (for milk), 5 hens, 2 rabbits and a seasonal pig. Our hobbies and passions are cooking/baking from scratch, traveling, everything about animals, wood working, gardening, crafts, reading books, pc games, board games and of course - making new friends. We used to be members of a living history group (approx. year 1315). In past we spent some time abroad as workawayers too. After return to our homeland, began building our own nest. We have bought an older house in a small village with a garden and a barn. One of our goals is to be self-sufficient as much as possible - so far we have our own eggs, goat milk, several kinds of fruits (plums, apples, apricots, strawberries, gooseberries, black currants, red currants, blueberries, raspberries ), vegetables (tomatoes, pumpkins, chilli peppers,...) and some meat. There are many things to be done - help us with our goat project, yoghurt/cheese making, baking, cooking, gardening, construction/repairing works, etc. For a while you can be like a member of our family. Lovers of good tea and coffee are welcomed a lot!


    Due to several unpleasant experience with workawayers we decided to mention following things...

    - Please take with you your working clothes and especially boots - you can get dirty (we are not happy if you damage our ones because we are trying to use than as long as possible - due to respect of nature).
    - Consider that your level in English is enough to clearly undestand what to do and what not to do. We speak easy english and if you don't understand just ask twice
    - During milking season (April - October) we prefer workawayers with interest in milking goats and processing milk (cheese/youghurt/curd making) and also during this time we cannot accept anyone lactose intolerant or vegan.
    - Basic knowledge how to use different tools (drill, saw, measure tape...) is more than welcomed.
    - Independent and responsible approach to work is also very important.
    - we don't like to call anyone to work more than once, if we agree on certain time, be there

    We live in the border of regions Haná - very fertile flatland and Jeseníky mountains. Great nature is here everywhere and nearby - there is also arboretum, swimming pool and waterfall in the village - so feel free to explore it. The Czechs are usually known as kind hearted and versatile people. There is no one at the World who do not hear about Czech beer! Also Czech Republic is known for many castles and chateaus - there are several of them nearby and you can visit them, see different exhibitions and pieces of Czech history.

    We can teach you whatever we know - just ask.

    As a travel and food lovers we established travel cook book and gather recipes from our foreign friends - it would be an honor to have more and more of them and maybe publish it once there are enough recipes.

  • Unterkunft


    We have one guest room with two single beds directly at home. Other rooms are shared with us.

    Three meals per day (at least one "warm") included. We eat together as it is time to see each other and discuss. Traditional Czech meals are no problem for us to prepare and we can teach you how to make them. If you can cook your typical and favourite meal we would be happy. :)

    If you have any dietary restrictions please first discuss it with us or even consider your coming here as our cuisine might be problematic - lots of dairy products (mostly homemade), not many vegan meals etc. It might seems to be a clear thing if you visit country with potentionaly different eating habits than your one but we do not want to have another experience with workawayers suprised we are eating different food...As always the communication is the key!

    We would really appreciate if you participate in house cleaning and preparing meals ... Sometimes it happens to us that workawayers closed themselves in their room and just wait once someone call them to have a meal. But we are not a hotel, as it is written above be the part of our family and family is helping each other right? Thank you for understanding. :)
