  • Description

    Description

    We are a Christian believing family of mother and daughter (51yrs and 18yrs) from Denmark who in May 2019 bought a piece of land (3500sqm) in the Vineyard area just outside Nagypeterd - Baranya, Hungary.

    It's quite remote here and there's around 4km to the nearest bar/restaurant in Nagypeterd, so please embrace yourself for a country life experience.

    The land has an orchard with several fruit trees, among which we find sour cherries, pears, red and green apples, and plums. There are also three plots with rows of red and white grapes and a vegetable plot.

    Our vision for the land is a place where people as singles or groups can come and spend time together with the Most High God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, away from daily life necessities and distractions.
    A simple lifestyle with time for devotion and teamwork, perhaps even prayer and fasting time. A perfect vision from Yahveh God. If you want to read more, you can search for Project Gods Buffet.

    Our plan for the place is to reform the lower orchard plot (1500sqm) to a place where you can walk through to expand your smell, touch, and sight by making a garden with herbs, flowers, water, and 3-4 small two-person shelters for overnight stays. One of the plots with wine will be transformed into a garden with a greenhouse and more exotic trees for self-sufficiency and hopefully a few beehives.

    We are into organic and permaculture, so any skills in that direction are more than welcome :-)

    PLEASE make sure to read the whole description before contacting us. Thanks in advance.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The feeling of building something up from scratch is wonderful, and we would love to share this experience with you. So if you're up for a challenge and a hard worker, this might be the place for you.

    We are still new to Hungary, but will love to go exploring the nearby surroundings with you!

    At the moment we have 2 projects to complete:

    1. Setting up a tool shed - for this, we need to lay gravel and tiles + put together the metal shed.
    2. For the caravan: a platform to stand on and an open wood cover for the winter.

    It's pretty simple work but we would be happy to get some help :-)

    Accommodation

    Accommodation is small and quite basic... think primitive. But with your help, we hope it won't stay so for long :-)

    There's a small winehouse with 2 rooms, however, we prefer to give accommodation in our cotton tent, because the house is yet to be renovated. A private sleeping cabin with a foldable will be provided for you in the spacious tent.

    The toilet is a camping toilet at the moment, and the shower is a washbowl in a separate "toilet"-tent. Not fancy, but functionable. For the shower, please note that we only accept organic/natural soap since all the water goes back to the ground and we are striving to be a chemical-free place. If you don't have any yourself we'll be happy to provide soap.

    We bring water in big water cans from a well in the nearby village.
    We are NOT able to host vegetarians or vegans since our diet contains both meat (limited, but never pork) and dairy products.

    We kindly ask you to respect that we need our privacy after dinner and on Saturdays.

    P.S. There's Wifi, but it can be a bit slow and is only available next to the house, between meals.
