    You will learn how travelers discovered an amazing unbelievable country called Romania and why many of them decided to settle here. I can teach you my language, I can take you to places and help you meet very interesting people.

    I'm a sensitive person, an art lover,too. We have 3 adorable cats to play with. My daughter will take her doctorate in FINE ARTS (in October) She is involved in cultural , art projects.

    Though we live a peasant life, we have an intellectual structure.

    We have a 800 sq.m plot with an orchard and a small flower garden which need season care. We also have a 2 stored house with attic and cellar that need maintenance. In hot summer days we bring our old father(93 years old) to stay here for some days It's good to have someone to take care of him and enjoy the extended family moments.

    We have a very welcoming house, in the middle of an orchard, surrounded by flowers. Volunteers will have a room at the first level( in cold weather ( or at the attic, which is a large, special , bright place where artists feel great Each level has clean rooms and bathrooms.

    The ground floor has a large kitchen where we cook and get together it's the place where our volunteers prepared their traditional food to share it with us.

    We love to listen to music, talk and share nice moments on the terrace or in the garden. As our area is famous for the high quality of its air we usually don.t take smokers.
