  • Description


    This is a piece of land in the middle of the mountains, with good access and a waterfall in 6 km distance. On my land are living only 4 sheep's and me. My electric is produced by solar panels and i have a optic fibra connection for the internet. I can provide, space for camping, water, electric, internet, hot water shower, if you want you can sleep in my caravan which i only use for cooking.

    Since 2 year's i am working on the project and still not finished everything. For example there's a lot of garden work, from big trees pruning, cutting death ones, to small garden thing's like taking care of the fiel and expand it (have many plants in pots who need a space in the ground). Construction work with wood for my animals or my tiny house, wall construction with stones and so on.

    Important for me is that there is no time to rush :) I am also always open for new ideas about construction, garden work etc. You can do your own art on my land.

    You are also welcome just to rest a few days if you are/was traveling allot and if you share some story's from the way i won't mind if you are lazy about working XD
