  • Description



    A couple of wolves and some sheep living happily in a valley, always looking to learn, share and accept and help others...

    Looking for happy positive awake people, a doer, naturally be at one with nature and be very comfortable in your own skin..
    I can offer a sweet little studio cottage with it's own bathroom, where you have your own space to live and where you can make your own food and be, i can supply vegetables, legumes, grains, oats, fruit etc or no food and do less work. Normally 6 days a week 4 hours each but very adaptable with how we feel and what the weather is doing...

    I thought best at the moment that you can have your own private space in this current climate

    Here is a quiet place, set in a very peaceful valley so i look for a person that is also calm and gentle..

    I make many things, at the moment i'm into constructing round buildings and am happy to show you possibilities of how something could come together, nothing here is 'normal' for sure..

    I would really like to learn Reiki so if there was a possible exchange here this would be lovely

    Much Love,

    P.s. Only non vaccinated please


    I will be building some water-harvesting earthworks this autumn, some help choosing/researching the right trees/shrubs and planting, making mini fences around them to protect from the sheep

    Knowledge and love towards gardening would be great...

    Meditation, calmness, some mornings or days in silence.. Please reply if this appeals.

    Some help taking care of the gardens, maybe making cheese, simple life, meditative, quiet.... peaceful

    Non wifi/non-mobilephone land, 'Disconnect to connect'... You can get mobile reception up the valley out of the land but while here & in my company on trips out i ask you to have your device turned off :)

    I favour slow travelers, there doesn't seem a need to air travel anyone :)

    P.s. The photos are old as i have no camera..

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Calmness, learning together the art of permaculture, many hiking trails and views to the horizon, incredible mix of wildlife, historical villages with castles on tops of hills, realization that time is just an illusion , connection to nature, space to flow once again

  • Help


    Helping form more gardens, being happy, helping around with general stuff, trades are great, common sense even better. Also this year i push to remove more invasive weeds
    Here was an all expanding vegetable garden, it was trying to follow the principles of permaculture, having an extra pair of hands would be very handy... Knowledge of gardening even better
