    Description

    Over the past almost 2 years, we have unfortunately neglected our Workaway account and taken a break. We apologise for any inconvenience. We are now highly motivated to host people again from March 2023.

    We are a Swiss family living in the middle of the sandy Puszta in Southern Hungary.

    We would be very happy to meet people who believe in Jesus but we like all people, regardless of faith and nationality.
    Familys and animals are also welcome. We like to learn and grow together.

    On 6000m2 we have a house that was created and build by ourselves. There is a garden, many fruit trees, chickens and a guesthouse for volunteers. We run the farm as a hobby and we try to produce as much possible for the family. Permaculture is an important aspect on our way.

    With us you can:

    - Help in the garden
    - With forest workers and firewood
    - Art projects like painting and designing
    - Small jobs around the house
    - Various work with wood or clay
    - Preserving and processing fruits, vegetables and herbs

    (Of course this depends on the season)
    If you are interest in natural building, permacultur or self-sufficient life we can share our experience.


    Important to know we life a simple lifestyle on the farm. It might be not always perfect clean, sometimes we have to improvise and are not always well organized. Basically you as a Volunteer need the ability to adapt.

    In the free time we going often to a hot spring or pond, visiting regional markets, love cooking, play board and card games and sitting around the campfire. Our children are really open and love to play with the Volunteers.

    Our place is not perfect for sight-seeing the most famous places in Hungary. The place isn't that urban and public transport not to close but we will do our best to show you around and open up possibility's.

    You can reach our place easily from Budapest with regional trains or buses in around 2h, as well from Szeged, Serbia and Romania.

    The pictures are not quite up to date. i'll have a look into that soon...

    Thanks for your interest on our profile.
