We are a friendly family living in the small town of Antsla, in South-Estonia. Our family consists of me Evelyn, my husband Risto, and our cheerful 6-year-old son Kendrik. Our two older children are students away from home. We share our home with two lovely dogs, a friendly cat, and a cute group of five chickens. With a large yard and a cozy holiday house, we invite you to join us for an enriching experience.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Antsla is a peaceful and charming small town, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of nature. You'll find amazing places like Karula National Park, Pokumaa and Sangaste Castle just a few kilometers away. Both in Antsla and the nearby surroundings, there are many different concerts, performances, and workshops to visit. The enchanting towns of Võru and Otepää are a short drive away, offering more opportunities to explore the Estonian charm and culture. If you want some city excitement, Tartu is within reach, and the Estonian capital, Tallinn, is also accessible. There are some train and bus options nearby, but the best solution is to have a car. We can also lend our car occasionally.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would love your help in the garden, sometimes cleaning the house and sometimes with childcare. Our son Kendrik is an open and curious child and he enjoys conversations. We would like if he could learn to communicate more in English. You are welcome to take your own child with you. Most of the time, I cook on my own, but if you enjoy cooking, we would gladly appreciate good food :)
Your contributions will be a valuable part of our daily life, and we can't wait to share this meaningful journey with you.

You'll have your own room in our big house with a comfy double bed, providing you with a cozy and private space to relax and rest after a fulfilling day. We will share a bathroom and a sauna.
In exchange for 20 hours of work per week, we offer you two meals every day. We eat a regular meat diet. My husband is a hunter. If you are vegan or vegetarian you are welcome, but you will need to help me with food preparation and cooking.
You'll have flexible work hours, so you can also explore the beautiful nature or go to the bigger city in your free time.
What else ...
During your stay with us, you'll have the chance to immerse yourself in the peaceful South-Estonian countryside while enjoying activities with our family. Whether it's gardening, helping with projects, playing with Kendrik, or spending time with our animals, you'll find joy and contentment in this unique experience. I hope, we'll share engaging conversations and some cultural exchange during the meals :)
