    Description

    Hi, we are Edit and Peter and we run our B&B in the Hungarian country side near Lake Balaton and Héviz.

    We always need a hand, or two, to help us looking after our animals and in our garden. Some experience with horses would be fantastic and if you know German even better.

    We have 7 horses: 2 Lipizzans, 2 Friesians and 3 Hungarian horses. Edit also breeds Hungarian sheepdogs, both Komondors (the big ones) and Pulis (the smaller type). And we have a bunch of cats as well.

    Stay with us for some time, enjoy the country side and learn Hungarian. We are happy to take you along to our outings with B&B guests.

    We are looking for one or two individuals, ideally with German and English skills who can stay with us between now until the end of September. It'd be fantastic to have you around for the full season but we are flexible and accommodate with your travel plans. Non-smokers are definitely preferred and you should feel comfortable around animals. We'll also teach you some Hungarian if you are interested.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you are an experienced horse rider, you are free to ride our horses. There's plenty of opportunity to do outdoors stuff, e.g. trail running, cycling, swimming, paragliding, fishing and sailing. Thermal lakes and local markets are also interesting attractions nearby. And the trip to Budapest is about 2 hours.
