  • Description


    Hi, we are a belgian couple, creating since 5 years a magical place in the Southern hills of Hungary. We combine small-scaled ecological farming (permaculture and bio-dynamic gardening) with ecotourism in order to create a welcoming little paradise.

    The land of our is 2 ha, at the border of a small village, connected to the forest. We live our dream but help of motivated people is absolutely needed to build up the cabin in the woods, indicating forest trails, help in the garden, and help out in our daily family life with the kids. Every summer we're expecting quite some guests at the lodge (mini camping, glamping, cabin and tree house) which will create more beautiful work to help with.

    We are a family of 4 (my wife Milady, 34, our two little boys of 4 years and 3 years old, and myself Roeland,34). Before we traveled a lot in Europe, South-East Asia and Columbia. We had a veggie-food truck on festivals, but now we settled down to create the project.
    Milady is social worker, herbalist and aspirant sommelier, Roeland is chef and aspirant sommelier and worked for 5 years on a bio-dynamic coöperative in Belgium. Our little boys are wonderful and make life complete at the farm ;-)
