    Description

    Welcome!
    Tashidelek!

    We are Tibetan-Czech family with children (2 in 2019) building a Tibetan house in Centre of Europe!

    XXXXXXX
    WINTER IS COMING
    XXXXXXX
    We do NOT have heating in guest rooms (4 rooms!)
    Please, WARM sleeping bag is MUST BRING in winter (sept-apr!!)

    We can accomodate you in our living room, BUT it is our living room and kitchen, we use the room most of day and evenings. We r fine with you sleeping there, but its not such comfortable for you maybe.
    XXXXXXXXXX

    When we moved in (2019), there were old storehouse and 2 more old buildings ready to pull down. We live in huge 100 years old house with many rooms where our visitors can stay and which we also need to make prettier.

    We have dozens of plans for future. Hens, garden with vegetable, potatoes, fruit trees, forest, sheep, horses etc.

    We plan to build a Tibetan chorten, mini Tibetan traditional houses in garden, wooden yurt, tee-pee,... organise Tibetan culture festivals, farmstay, Tibetan movie weekends etc..... maybe one miniature Potala Palace on the hill? Wow!

    Huge permaculture garden and have animals.

    Everybody is welcome to join, help, learn, teach, share and enjoy!

    We have 2 kids, so, there is no time to talk with us sit and relax at all actually :D
    You are going to be part of the family, small community. You are going to be uncle and aunt! No, you dont babysit 24/7, but they will talk with you, play, run, jump, sing and disturb you all the time ;)

    SEPTEMBER 2019
    We will come back from Tibet during 1st half of the month.
    If you want to visit us, please pan your trip after September 15.

    Storehouse, broken house - pile bricks, pile roof tiles, timbers etc. endless work... think of it as a MEDITATION and MINDFOCUSING excercise!

    Garden - prepare land for next spring, plough land for potatoes, grow trees and bushes, clean and fix old greenhouse (clean old tools, fix, get ready for next year), etc...
    cut trees and bushes in another part of garden. Cut grass.

    Cut wood for winter! Winter is coming!!!
    We need enough wood for almost 10 months long autumn-winter-spring season.

    WHO ARE YOU?

    We welcome everybody, single, couples, families, groups! Animals with you.

    Do NOT SMOKE IN HOUSE AND GARDEN!
    Smoking is strictly forbidden, if you sleep in tent in garden, no smoking too! Its awkward to see cigarettes in grass in morning.

    We love meeting people, we wish you can stay from 3-4 days to 3 or 4 weeks.

    We cook together if you are ok. We eat everything, cook everything, oftenly simple food,
    trying to buy local and organic vegetable, meat and milk products.

    Accommodation

    Your and our tents, sleeping bags,...

    We cook simple food, sometimes traditional Tibetan food. Meat ok. Vegan ok.

    There is ONE BATHROOM in the huge house. Old, small. Water comes from old well in garden. Please SAVE WATER! Not just to save the planet, but also to save water for our garden, for everyone in house, for kids and for your own good feeling!

    There is dry toilet outside. We really do not use drinking water to flush our own sht ;) Just imagine that!! :-O

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    NO SMOKING ON OUR LAND!!!! HOUSE AND GARDEN! Really! This is one of basic rules!


    GETTTING AROUND
    The house is 100m far from bus stop, buses take you to/from:
    - USTI NAD ORLICI, where is TRAIN to/from Prague and everywhere in Czech.
    - LITOMYSL, where is UNESCO heritage castle, beautiful square with many cosy caffes and shops.

    ORLICKE mountains are around 30km far to north, with highest peaks around 1000meters. In mountains you can find even more quiet places than our garden, beautiful views and cheaper hotels and services than in the highest Czech mountain Krkonose (Giant mountains). It is easy to get here by buses and spend nice weekend. In winter there are many ski slopes and snb parks.

    We dont have car now (2019) and we are not planing to get any right now. So we cant pick you at the train station. We can meet at bus station tho :)
    Czech has GREAT buses and trains network. Trains take you to every town and buses to every village!

    Czechs speak English in Prague, Czech everywhere else. If you come to train station and need to ask for help, use simple sentences and bodylanguage.
