  • Description


    We are a family of 5-6 members.
    Our home is situated by the riverside and near a mountain. So, a picturesque view here.
    We produce food for ourself and sell food products, too. And sometimes buy products we do not have enough.
    We have a fish pool, sheep, chickens, ducks, guinea fowls, one donkey, bees (4 hives), 1 dog and 1 cat. A lot of trees like fig trees, pomergranate trees, mulberry trees, plumb trees, persimon, pear, olive ones etc... and we grow some vegetables. Some lemon, orange, mandarin and 2 little kumquat trees. We do not use pesticides, neither chemical fertilizers, just manure from the sheep, which is mixed with the hay, so it is made like compost and manure from the chickens and the donkey, too. We would rather use physical control, removing the pests one by one and try experimental methods to control fungal diseases when it is neccesary for example on cucumbers. It winds enough here, so the wind helps to fight pests.
    We also have a small filming and photoghraphy studio. We mainly provide photo and video service for birthday parties, wedding parties, baptisement parties etc.

    In your free time you can travel around, hike and whatever suits you.

    Because of Covid19, the first days of your stay we keep a certain distance with volunteers (half meter is enough).
    We like to have our own privacy sometimes and won't socialize all the time with you.

    We will host you if you arrive around the time we all agreed. Do not come and do not leave at night or early in the morning, especially without letting us know. As long as you are staying here, we need to know when you leave and where you go.
