  • Description

    Description

    We are Toby, Ulla and our boys Alistair, Luke and Oliver in Latvia.

    We live 150 m from the Baltic Sea in the middle of nature and we have built an award winning eco-guest house.


    Anyone who would like to come and help out in exchange for lodgings, a chance to sit in peace with good food and company, is very welcome. We have a variety of things to do, you won't be bored!

    A chance to meet lots of eco-minded guests from all over Europe, spend time with a lovely family that has travelled the world, and enjoy the wonderful nature.

  • Help

    Help

    There are lots of jobs including running the guesthouse, maintaining the land, activities with guests and doing stuff with our lovely 3 boys. We often try to set an achievable mini project which the volunteer can choose when possible and we like creativity and originality.

    We would also really welcome someone who knows how to construct simple wooden structures for children. We want to develop our natural children's area more this summer.

    We will try to give jobs and projects that fit the kind of work that the volunteer is interested in and we are open and flexible.

    The main thing we look for is for a volunteer to be happy, positive and to have a 'can do' attitude to life


    Thanks and look froward to hearing from you!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a choice of accommodation. If the guesthouse is not full, we can offer a room there, we also have a little separate house where visitors can stay. It is quite basic but fine to live in. We also have the campsite shower and toilet block. We will take care of the cooking unless you have a dish you are willing to share with us, and you will be looked after.

    Anyone who wants to just sleep in a tent is also very welcome, it is the middle of nature after all.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are lots of things to do in nature, it is a beautiful area with different habitats, and you can walk for hours without seeing anyone. We are next to the sea so you can swim every day, run on the beach etc.
