  • Description


    We are a retired Swiss couple living on a beautiful tanya (a big farmhouse) in the middle of the famous Hungarian puszta. A lovely garden and a big swimmingpool as well as your own room with bathroom en-suite, TV and Internet access are awaiting you.
    Around the house extend big pastures for the horses. We own 4 horses (1 thoroughbred, 2 Hungarian horses for the coach and also for riding and 1 Holsteiner mare and 1 black pony.
    We share our home with 6 dogs, all of them coming from animal shelters.
    We would be happy to welcome a volunteer who loves horses and dogs and is an experienced and good rider. We have our own guesthouse where the volunteer can lodge. We also need help with the garden and the pastures. And cooking nice meals would be greatly appreciated 😊.
    As we live in the middle of the puszta a driving licence would be very useful. We have an old station car for use for our workaways.
    The airport is quite near, only 1 hour by car. Easyjet, Wizzair and other cheap airlines fly to Budapest. From the airport you reach us by train in 1,5 hours and the train costs around 12 €.
    We will pick you up at the train station near us in Kistelek.
    We only welcome workawayers who can stay 3 weeks or even longer. Minimal stay are 3 weeks!
    We are really looking forward to welcoming you at our tanya! 😀😀😀
