  • Description


    I have an outdoor centre surrounded by forests, the Sazava River, historic sites, cycle and hiking trails and nature.
    Our hostel, camping site, canoe and bicycle rental is 30kms from Prague, reachable by the train that goes through the nearby village.
    I am looking for people who can help with common work, housekeeping, helping in the kitchen, mowing lawns, painting and general maintenance.
    I invite people who are independent, enjoy nature, are happy to do whatever is needed around the place, can pitch in together and be flexible with work hours and tasks. I prefer people to stay 1 month or longer, but sometimes a short stay is ok, contact me to find out.
    I offer a relaxed environment, flexible work hours with lots of time to swim in the river that is on our doorstep, ride our bikes on the Prague to Vienna cycle trail running past the centre, walk in the surrounding forests, visit the nearby ancient castles and monasteries or relax in the shade with a beer. Accomodation and food are provided for the 5 hrs work each day, 5 days each week. Accomodation varies between a room in our hostel, a cabin or caravan depending on current needs and preferences.

    In general the season for hostel\camping\kayaking starts in May and ends in September.
    In October and April the work mainly consists of gardening, painting, general cleaning and reconstruction work.
    I welcome you to the lovely Podubbi area and to the U Borka Outdoor Centrum and look foward to meeting you.

    The best way how to get here is by train from Prague. From Prague Main Station (Hlavni nadrazi) you buy a ticket to Hvezdonice. You will change trains in Cercany and the whole journey takes around 1 hour. The first train from Prague goes in the direction of Benesov or Ceske Budejovice, but dont forget get out the train in Cercany :-) In Cercany, go down the stairs to the next platform to catch a very small train heading to SAZAVA and get out in Hvezdonice. Please contact me for more details on how to find us.
