  • Accommodation


    If you like a nature life, this is for you. There is a beautiful cottage - strawbale house for volunteers and Internet WIFI. No hot shower, but possible to organize simple washing in cottage, 1-2 times per week we make sauna. We provide things for bed, washing.
    Meals are organized together with the family, we are eating meat. We make local, partly home-grown, seasonal food. We can provide vegetarian meals (including our own milk/egs) as well, but could be problems with vegan food, especially in winter. So if You are vegan, You should buy needed specific products in bigger towns and take with Yourself...

    What else ...

    The life here is simple, basic village life, hence food is prepared on a hot fire-stove, there's a rocket stove and a nice sauna, but not hot shower.
    You can come by buss stright to our village. The closest big Town is Daugavpils. You can come to Daugavpils either form Riga or Vilnius (Lithuania) airport, because it is the same distance and travel cost...
