  • Description


    We are a young family with a dream of a family homestead - a self-sufficient plot of land surrounded by a hedge with some ponds, river, woods, a meadow, vegetable gardens, berries, herbs, mushrooms, a greenhouse, sauna and beehives. Our greatest dream has come true - we have bought a beautiful 15 ha land with a landscape, river, ponds, woods and meadows. But a lot of work is still to be done to be able to live there. There is an old house that needs to be rebuilded, there are forests hat needs to be cleaned and there is a land that needs to be developed.

  • Accommodation


    Currently we have an English type trailer at our plot of land - but it has everything needed- two rooms, kitchen, bathroom and its own heating system. Everything is clean and neat. As we are growing vegetables, then we can give some seasonal food for you as well. All the house and land would be available exclusively for you! The road and communications are pretty close but due to a landscape you will not be disturbed by other houses or cars.
