    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can explore the area by yourself but I will also love to take you around by bicycle or by car if I have free time. On the other hand, the wild natural surroundings are breathtaking landscapes. You can do climb,fishing, riding, shopping ,etc.. And if you are interested, I'm very happy to share with you some fascinating episodes from our rich and ancient local history.
    You will have the opportunity to live in the natural area ,you will discover beautiful place , uncovered by too many tourists, always in contact with nature, close to a large city of the county, but also by the important tourist points in this area.
    You will learn how to renovate a house, and how to care for a garden or animals but the most important thing is that you will be in direct contact with the local community at the same time, we are sure that in turn we are still learning many things, so maybe you can teach us something and at the same time you will leave a mark on our places.
    I can teach you about my culture, about the domestic and wild animals, birds and plants , and the local traditions, history and habits in Romania
