  • Description


    We live our life as we wish. A Happy family,
    Nature and Travel lovers.. we are Indian-Czech family. Anbu was film maker in India and Alice was dance and Yoga teacher in Prague, we left our professions and moved to the nature. People say we are brave and courageous, the truth is we are just following our dreams.

    Our house is build in 1896, and it was German Villa, and sometimes it was run as School for Czech childrens, till the second world war and then the whole area was restricted and this house was kept for soldiers and ministers guest house till 1997, this village was having 150 houses with German inhabitants after the war they moved everyone and kept only 5 houses left in the village.

    Now we are the only family staying whole year in this village, one old couple living only in summer 300m away from us and one pension and restaurant is 600m from us, it will be open from morning 10am till 5pm in the evening.

    our house have 10 rooms and 3 big halls, for hosting guests
    we are planning for farm house with Alpaca and horses, and free tea for the travellers passing by.
    one hall for meditation and yoga

    A beautiful happy place to sleep, its located in mountain 900m above the sea level, Krušné Hory.
    this is the path for cross country skiing, and bicycle path around.
    No public transports. the nearest one is 7km, the way is so beautiful. you should inform us 1 to 2 days earlier. we will come and pick you up.

    Here you can enjoy and feel the energy without mobile signal.

    We have satellite internet wifi. When it is bad weather, it is sometimes not working :-)

    We will provide small room for helpers and free food.

    We would like to have our volunteers here like a part of our family, spending as much time as possible together, getting know each other and each other culture.

    We don't smoke and we are sorry, we are not hosting Smokers as our Volunteers.

    Helping is 4-5 hours a day and 5 days a week. Besides that, we can all together prepare food (breakfast, lunch, dinner), clean the dishes, play with children.
    Average timings of the food is 9am breakfast, 1pm lunch and 7 pm dinner.

    Some evenings we can play games, music, apply henna, bring wood from the forest and prepare fire, have interesting talks etc.

    Day off is the day we all can be cooking together and going out for picnic, and enjoy the day. In the day off we all have to cook and helping in cleaning the dishes.

    If you need something don't hesitate to ask Alice or Anbu.

    we are 4 people, me, my wife and our small 8 years old Angel, and 6 years Angel, sometimes I call them cute wild animals :) , and we have a cats outside the house, chickens, budgies, race and fancy Pigeons and 2 Alpacas and 3 horses (Irish cob)and one foul . The room for volunteers is small, so we recommend 1 to 2 people at one time.

    We need some help in cleaning the kitchen and house, in winter cleaning the snow, in summer farming, taking care of our animals, sometimes we are also continuing with reconstruction of the house, like painting, plastering, making tiles mosaic etc. Our daughters will love when you play with them, teach them, draw or any activities.

    Our new project is making short film about our life, animals, volunteering and homeschooling. So if you want to be part of it, we will be so happy.

    Because of this Covid situation we are taking volunteers minimum for a month or longer stay and You need covid PCR negative test to enter Czech Republic .
    we can give you volunteering contract for a month to travel to and from Our home.
    Updated Czech rule from 22 nov 2021 .For activities like restaurant, indoor sports , public transports needs vaccination.
