    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love having travelers staying over with us. We deeply enjoy connecting with folks from all walks of life. We offer a stay in a very beautiful small farm (4 hectares) with much forest, a small stream and small river for cool down in hot summer days. The surrounding natural area is of incredible beauty with much to explore. And the towns are also very special.

    We offer you to take a dip into how to construct with natural materials and a do it yourself approach to building your own home.
