    We are a community of people living together, and creating an ecovillage in South Bohemia. Our mission is to make a harmonious space for people to experience a natural & healthy lifestyle. The community is based on principles of sustainability, self-sufficiency, open communication, and a loving kind approach to people & nature. We promote nontoxic & zero waste household, vegan & raw diet, permaculture, self-responsible behavior, and especially inner development.

    We love to share our ideas about raw food, fermentation, nontoxic home, and conscious life in general. We have great cooks among us, so you can also learn how to prepare vegan & raw meals for more people, bake bread, pickle veggies, etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    A mediaeval town of Písek is 20 minutes away from our place. Prague, the capital city, is one hour away from Vrábsko. There is a direct public transport running to Písek and to Prague from a town called Čimelice, which is 3 km away from Vrábsko.

    There are beautiful ponds, meadows, woods and creeks ready for you to explore. There are also many opportunities for swimming within a 15 minute drive by car. The area is truly beautiful, you will be able to enjoy the pure nature, tranquility of a small village where the roads end, as well as a community lifestyle.

    You can also visit Prague, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and you will for sure love to get lost in the medieval streeties around the Old Town.

    We have been traveling a lot in the past so we can share experiences & stories from many countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the US.
