  • Description


    Hey there!
    We are Mary and Miguel, a married couple from Slovakia and Chile, living on a small farm in Horné Orešany, Slovakia-
    50 min from the capital city Bratislava.

    During the summer season we are busy with our horse lessons, camps and bees, in the winter we love to work as ski & snowboard instructors and give our animals a break.
    In the past we had singles, couples but also families taking care of the farm, they enjoyed it so it became a win-win situation.

    Therefor we want to give you the opportunity to enjoy farm life and take care of the farm while we are gone.We like you to stay for at least 2 month during the months December,January and February . we are also happy to have you longer =)

    We have 6 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 mini pigs

    More animals than people but the daily work can be done in 2-4 hours (morning feeding animals,mucking out and taking care of horses, evening feeding animals)
    Most of the work is around our horses, which are well behaved but still are a herd living 24/7 outside. Little injuries can happen, no big deal, but need to be taken care of as other work that comes with this animals. Who knows, knows but of course we will give you a thorough introduction over few weeks and think this is a great opportunity for any horse and animal loving person/couple/family.

    We have an outdoor arena, a little indoor arena and great opportunities for trail riding. We ride both english and western and focus mainly on the natural and safe way around horses. During the year I do hippo therapies and offer lessons teaching not only riding but more the "around" the horse.

    Dogs are one big old lady who´s most of the time sleeping and the other one is a 2 years old small creature full of love. She loves to go out on trails, hikes and will love you for some ball games, but also enjoys the chill and cuddles on the couch.The cats are super cool, young outside cats which don´t require much but will be happy for some cuddles. Taking care of the pigs is simple and easy and I guarantee you will love them =) .

    Winter months can get cold here and we also get snow, not much but we do. No extremes here, so there is no, to very little snow removal necessary. We also have a very little slope were we took our old boards, skis and sleds and had some fun in the snow. Also we did some sledding and skiing behind horses.
    It can get rainy and muddy, but not too bad as most of our area is fixed with gravel,sand or is indoor.

    You would stay in a house on property (right beside the horses) providing internet, tv, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,living room with fireplace and open kitchen, garage with laundry room a game room with table football, ping pong, PS4 and an open library with another bed for 2.
    So there is always something to do and you will have a lot of time for yourself/yourselves.

    Day offs can be arranged in advance. There are always neighbours and friends happy to help out.
    There is a Bar/Restaurant just 100m below us, with good cold beer and yummy food.
    Bus is right beside that bar and takes you in just 25 min to the next city (Trnava-train station, shopping mall, cinema,etc)
    (the bus will drive everyday but keep in mind we are in the country side so they are not as frequent)
    The next groceries are 5 min by car, same with bus and are also reachable by foot 20-30 min.

    When you are interested and have question we will be happy to get in contact with you.
    Cheers :)
