We are Sebastian and Alessa.
In 2013 Sebastian decided to leave my old life in the "hamster wheel", bought a beautiful property in the middle of Latvian nature to build a peaceful life in harmony with nature. Alessa joined in 2020 as a volunteer and decided to stay. We live in the heart of the nature park "Daugavas Loki", directly on the bank of the Daugava river. Ourneighbors are about a 30 minutes walk away.
Now we run a small tourism farm with 2 dogs, 1 cat, 20 goats and many chickens.
We milk and make my own goat cheese.
For the past few years we spend time and work to realize our little paradise. We would like to use the next few years to expand and use the whole areal.
With the help of many workawayers, we created the “Chillout Forest” a perfect and quiet place to relax in nature.

I would like to offer a pleasant and stressless stay in the quiet and seclusion of nature. Living and working in the holiday complex and on the farm offers new tasks and impressions every day. The animals want to be taken care of, the projects in the forest offer numerous opportunities to let your creativity run wild. In addition, we have many guests from different countries.
- the goats want to go back to pasture after a long winter. Therefor electric fences need to be stretched
- the goat's stable must be cleared after the winter
- a new compost needto be built
- the jetty to the swimming pond must be painted
For the party I need a lot of help with the decoration, the stage construction and the smaller preparations in advance.
The most of my personal work and time in summer is to take care of guests and tourists.
I am looking for someone who can help with all works around the farm:
- feed the goats and muck them out
- cut the lawn
- cooking, help in the house
Autumn / Winter:
- chop wood
- gather leaves
- preparations for the upcoming season
I am not looking for any help regarding working with tourists.
If you feel like living and working in nature, I'm always looking for long-term workawayers and housemates.
