  • Description


    We are a Polish family looking for workawayers who'd like to stay in a beautiful countryside house with a nice garden. As a family, we live simple and happy life in the middle of nowhere (actually there is a good bus connection to Krakow and it takes only hour to get to the city). Our house is always open for everyone who'd like to rest, spend a nice weekend in the mountains, do some art work or play instruments. We have lots of interests and everyone is different but we highly respect each other. At home we have few guitars, djembe, drum kit, violin, accordion so all music lovers are welcome. The number of people living in the house varies from time to time - depending on if we travel or live peacefully in the countryside.

    Here, everyone feels like at home. We clean, cook and spend free time together (but if you need privacy there's always a place where you can be alone). We love spending time with our friends, having a campfire, going for small trips to the mountains or lake. We play instruments and music is all around the house. In the future we plan to do some workshops, travel storytelling evenings and jam sessions. We would love to share time with new people as we believe that everyone brings new energy to the house. We always provide loving and caring place to stay and feel safe in.

    We only welcome people who would like to join our daily Zen meditation practice and yoga. The meals we share would be mostly vegan.

    We can offer a payment as well - all depends on the current jobs that need to be done.

We also have some housekeeping chores for everyone like cleaning kitchen and bathrooms, keeping the house tidy and cooking.
