  • Description


    My name Sebastian. I was born in Berlin / Germany, worked as travel business manager there, then moved to Munich and studied event management in addition to my profession.
    In 2013 I decided to leave my old life in the "hamster wheel". I have bought a beautiful property in the middle of nature to build a quiet life in harmony with nature. The Place is located in the middle of the natural park "Daugavas Loki" on a 10-acre area. To the neighbors it is about a 30 minutes walk.
    I also run a small farm with 2 dogs, 1 cat, 7 goats and many chickens. I milk myself and make my own goat cheese.

    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.

    In Spring several projects are on the list. Fences and gates need to be installed to enlarge the outdoor preserve for the goats. At the moment there are 7 females and 7 little ones, born in February. The area will contain forests and meadows and also offers acces to the river.

    Also I am planing to build 2 new terraces for guesthouses and a aviary for budgies.

    In summer a path leading from the main complex to the Daugava river is planed to be build.

    The most of my personal work and time in summer is to take care of guests and tourists. So I am looking for someone who can help with all works around the farm.

    I am not looking for any help regarding working with tourists.

    In autum it is harvesting and cleaning time - gathering leaves, as well as choping fire wood.

    For everybody who loves to be close to nature my place is just perfect. The city of Kraslava is only 6 km away. Daugavpils - the second biggest city in Latvia is 45km away.
