    Description

    Welcome!
    Tashidelek!

    We are Tibetan-Czech family with children (2 in 2020) building a Tibetan house in the Centre of Europe!

    Story:
    When we moved in (2019), there were old storehouse and 2 more old buildings. We live in huge 100 years old house with many rooms where our visitors can stay.
    We have dozens of plans for future. Animals, garden, forest, house etc...
    Sustainable living, self-sufficiency in food one day. Zero waste!
    Happy animals, kids and community.

    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 animals.

    We try to live minimalist, save water, electrocity etc. Not to have low bills, but to not harm the mother nature!

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

    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 ;)

    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.

    Czech has GREAT buses and trains public transport network. Trains take you to every town and buses to every village!

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