  • 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 5 horses (2 thouroughbreds, 2 Hungarian horses for the coach and also for riding and 1 Holsteiner mare). 7 dogs, all of them coming from animal shelters, are "members" of our family, too.
    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 sometimes cooking a nice meal would be greatly appreciated 😊
    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 prefer workawayers who can stay 3 weeks or even longer. Minimal stay are 2 weeks!
    We are really looking forward to welcoming you at our tanya! 😀😀😀

    We are located in the famous hungarian Puszta. The volunteer may use one of our two cars. Budapest and Szeged (a beautiful Art Nouveau city) are easy reachable by car in 70 minutes (Budapest) and 30 minutes (Szeged). The next small city is approx. 10 minutes from our tanya.
    In this small city called Kiskunmajsa you'll find a big thermal bath with fun park, restaurants, etc.
