    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Village life in Hungary can be a rich experience. Except for a few English-speaking expats, you'll learn some Hungarian, understand life in a post-Soviet country and the mentality of why Central Europeans are the way they are! It's really a feeling of how life was 50 or 70 years ago in the West and how entry to the European union has benefited the countryside and the nation.

  • Help


    We need help with pruning trees and removing branches, cutting grass with strimmer, feeding and watering sheep, fruit, assisting in mending fences or painting gates. Help with preparing meals desirable. Sun is intense so you'll need hat, clothes for hot & chilly weather. Rugged footwear is necessary but we can help with that depending on size.
