  • Beschreibung


    The elderly in these parts have miserable pensions and many when they become widows are left with little assistance.

    To help, a our family are building a charity home for the aged townsfolk without families to support them. The building will also serve as a community centre, and eventually an organic farm.

    The house is 80% finished and livable. There are some light construction jobs to be completed: painting, tile laying and the likes. If you have any of these skills let us now.

    The grounds are needing some serious tender care. We can use anyone who can dig a bit of a garden, weed, trim trees and even do some harvesting and jarring.

    In addition to help for the grounds and garden, we are always looking for people to do house-sitting over the colder months and maybe during the warmer ones.

    Lisa is a small farming community in the far southern Romanian county of Teleorman, close to the Bulgarian border and the Danube river. The project in Lisa is a relaxing place and is on the very edge of town where it is very quiet and peaceful. The property where the building takes place consists of the big new building for the project, two old buildings (now practically derelict), a small orchard, and quite a large meadow with an abundance of fruit trees.

    During spring through to autumn, the property serves as a camping spot or basic accommodation for bicycle tourers cycling along the Eurovelo 6 route. The cycle route goes from France to the Black Sea. This is one of (if not 'the') most popular bicycle route in Europe, and the route passes right through Lisa! In exchange for accommodating them, the guests make donations to the charity project. Some great times can be had with the tourists that come to stay.

    For any further details please feel free to contact Deborah via this website.

    Thank you for your helping hands

    As the town of Lisa is a small town, everybody will be curious of you and want to know about you. There will be an opportunity to mix with the (emotional, loud talking but) friendly neighbours and towns people, and even get/buy various different food produce off them.

    You will get a glimpse of what Western Europe would have been like significantly more than 50 years ago, with many people mainly living off their land and using a horse and cart to get around.

    Many people find the houses, life style and properties here to be quite beautiful.

  • Unterkunft


    Most likely you will have a room of your own.
    If it gets really busy, it may be necessary to share a room with someone else, but this has never been necessary before.

    The house currently has the following facilities:

    - Electricity
    - Running hot water (heated via solar panels)
    - Wifi
    - A washing machine
    - kitchen with gas stove and fridge with freezer

    House rules:

    For a little bit of clarification of what we consider sensible, sociable and considerate behaviour.

    The project aims to be a very informal, laid back easy going place.

    - No excessive consumption of alcohol

    - Please refrain from visiting any of the local bars.

    - Wash and clean up after yourself.

    - If you prepare some food, ask others if they would like to contribute to its contents, preparation, and, especially if using communal food; its consumption.

    - - Alcohol Consumption - -

    Any excess drinking that causes you to be any kind of liability, may lead to you being asked to leave the project, and any stay you have previously arranged to have at the Bed & Breakfast will be forfeited. The fact that the locals encouraged you to drink, or bought or gave you alcohol will not be accepted as an excuse. You may get one warning, or you may not.

    For some, it is difficult to find a way to occupy themselves in their free time here, due to the lack of familiar entertainment opportunities that rural Romania has to offer. In these circumstances the temptation of extremely cheap or free alcoholic drinks in abundance is too much of a temptation.

    If you get into a condition where you cannot be confidently trusted to look after yourself, or even stand on your own two feet or walk up steps without falling over, you will be asked to leave without hesitation. This is for your own well being as in this condition the general environment of the property and town could be of significant danger to you.
