  • Description


    We are Kristof & Murielle - Polish - French couple.
    We have been travelling few years ago using Workaway. It was an amazing experience! We met so many fantastic people - got involved in very interesting projects, shared the ideas, and enjoy every minutes with them working, exploring and having fun.
    Now we have our project and opportunities to host people in our home in Poland close to the forest where we have a small old farm.
    And we are trying to move the work forward on our farm restoration.
    If you like the country side, small isolated villages surrounded by forest and easy going village life please come to stay with us.
    We have as well a garden and orchard and we are using as much as we can our fruits and vegetables.
    We believe we are following a healthy life style - what that means for us ? We are trying to take care of the environment, promote recycling and implement healthy diet in our everyday life.

    We are in a remote quiet place and that is what we appreciate the most! The closest big city is Berlin and if you would like to come to us by plane we can collect you from the airport.
    We will be available to receive you between mid-august and mid-september.
