    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is requested that Workawayers help a maximum of 15 hours a week. Could be done flexibly like in 2-3 days and the rest of the time is free, of course. The capital city (Budapest) is not far and they are welcome to travel in the remaining days. Ideal for couples or friends as well.
    The garden is in a small town, shops, restaurants, and town center are within walking distance.

    Traveling from Budapest: the best option is to take the bus from BUDAPEST, STADION Bus station (1143 BUDAPEST, HUNGÁRIA KRT. 48-52.). It is about a 30-minute bus ride and about 10 minutes walk from Gödöllő bus stop.

  • Help


    Workawayers are requested to help in the garden. Mostly trimming and pruning, cutting grass, and some maintenance work such as painting, fixing around the house. No skills are required but knowledge in gardening and maintenance is a plus.

    If you are a Spanish speaker, you are very welcome to help me learning Spanish.

  • Accommodation


    A small flat is provided to Workawayers with a kitchen, washing machine and wifi.
    You are also requested to clean the flat properly before leaving.

    Workawayers are requested to buy their own food. Lots of shops are within walking distance (5 minutes), Aldi, Tesco, Lidl, etc.
    You will have your own flat, with a kitchen, oven, fridge, and microwave.
    You are requested to leave the kitchen and the flat cleaned after your stay.

    We are able to provide bedding and towels if you do not have your own. But it is better for us if you bring your sleeping bag.

    If you come by car, you can park freely in the garden of the house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will be basically on your own, with lot of flexibility. I live in another flat on the same plot.
    You will be requested to be able to work independently, once we agreed on the tasks to be done.
    This is a lovely garden and a great accommodation near Budapest. Coming to stay here will be the best for those who would like to explore the area on their own and have a nice place to stay.

    This placement will offer you a lot of independence and privacy and the work that you do in return will be greatly appreciated.

    Please note that I am not able to offer food, but there is a proper kitchen at your disposal and Aldi, Lidl, Tesco are 5 minutes away. That also means that you will not be asked to work for more than 15 hours a week.
