  • Description


    Important: Before to write us email, notice, that you may need visa to enter Belarus.

    We live in the forest, but there are 5 lakes around us and no roads. It is sometimes hard to get here but you never hear the highway or any other noise.
    The river Dniper floats and turns our hamlet into an island for all the spring. So we biuld the raft and the boats to bring people.

    We need workawayers to help with construction, cleaning the territory, gardenning, coocking, babysitting etc.

    It's not obligatory that you have expirience in all that - you can try yourself and learn from us.

    We provide healthy way of life and care to the nature around.
