Hello dear traveller. My name is Claudia and 1,5 years ago I bought an old farm for my animal family and myself. I am now living my dream of my own vegan animal sanctuary. The name of the place is "Gaias Herzoase" (Gaias Heartoasis). Here are living a dog, cats, pigs, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs and giant snails. My vision is to create a place of healing - for animals, humans, the human-animal-relationship and mother earth. I started alone, now I get support by my partner. But the vision is big and I am happy for every helping hand. And also the ~30 animals are happy about every stroking hand and a hand with a treat. ❤️

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You will experience a special place with a lot of love and harmony. The animals here are working as therapy animals and enjoy to get in contact with humans. Every animal has its own personality. I have a deep bonding with animals and I treat them as equals. My life is a kind of Pippi Langstrumpf (if you know her). It's a very relaxed energy here, so also when you are working you will feel a good energy.
It is very important to me what kind of energy is used here in the field. Take on the tasks that you like to do and that give you pleasure. For example: caring for the animals (feeding, cleaning the animal areas), garden work, cutting wood, repairing things, forest work, building shelters, tidy up and creating order, cooking vegan meals, creating art for the place...
At the moment I prefer people who have the skill to work with wood (building something, repairing a big wooden door for a cottage, restoring wooden furniture) or artists who want to paint something or create creative spots here on the place. And also somebody who has knowledge about gardening (permaculture) and could be a big help for me (because my main time I give to the animals, so the vegetables garden would be happy about some attention).
This host offers a language exchange
I would like to get better Hungarian skills and to learn Spanish.
There is a guest house with your own kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The bed is for 2 persons. There are possibilities for more sleep places (folding mattress). I wish that you support us with 4-5 hours of work per day. Two days per week are free. You get food for the breakfast, and once a day we cook and eat a meal together. Other meals you have to organise on your own please. Because of my empathy and my love for the animals is our home a vegan place, so there is kindly only vegan food desired.
What else ...
I am living in a small calm village surrounded by nature. My place is around 1 ha big with my own forest (there are living the pigs). You can enjoy the wonderful nature and relax in the heart of Mother earth. The sheep love to go for a hike. 15 minutes from our village there is a lake and also the next thermal bath. The village is in the middle of the next little cities Güssing and Oberwart. Once per week I am working in the state capital Eisenstadt, where you could come with me for a visit.
I am working as a full-time psychologist especially with families (focus on traumatized children and teenagers). Next to this I do some energy healing work for animals and humans. I would describe my way of living as spiritual, deep rooted and also flying high. Balance is the key. I love to spend my time with the animals and the nature, creating, experience the magic of my daily life, sitting around the fire (if you can play an instrument it would be great, because I can't) and recharge my batteries from the stillness.
