  • Description


    I live with two dogs and four donkeys in a small farmhouse., My daughter lives abroad, I teach German. I have a very big garden where I could use some help cutting the bushes to make space for the donkeys. Depending on the season there might be some woodcutting or carpeting work.
    It is a nice house in the middle of nature, but very close to Budapest, with a good train connection.. I dance Hungarian folk dances, my volunteer can come with me to the " folk-parties". I ride horses and donkeys, he/she can try it too.
    I have solar electricity for powering the lights and I get water from a spring. Life is very simple here, everything off grid. Don't hesitate to ask me for details before.

    The most important thing I am looking for a person who really like the nomad life, without electricity and water in the house and can work with the chainsaw and another tools.

    I dance folkdances, we can go to ruinenpubs with original live Hungarian folk music, and you can ride nomad horses in Börzsönjor or donkeys with me. I cook very well, delicious Hungarian food! The Danube is close, you can enjoy watersports too.
