  • Description



    I recently purchased the old house next to me and like to renovate it in old style.
    Besides that I have bees, some chickens, 2 cats and a vegetable garden.
    I intend to set up a greenhouse and another fenced area for chickens and finishing a sauna.

    The only experience I had so far with people staying in my house was having an Ukrainian couple in my house. But 99% communication went through Google translate which was not so easy but I am still in touch with them:)

    I do not eat meat but I have no problems with any diets that people like to follow.
    This text could use an editor :)
    But feel free to check me on Instagram. - ask me for the link

    Grape harvest is finished now, work at the old house is going on still.
    Gardening is little less now since temperatures are dropping.

    I love hiking and playing boardgames and watching arthouse movies so this could all be included in your stay.

    Next upcoming projects:

    -picking apples, cleaning and pressing apple juice
    I think none of the tasks are really hard or require technical skills.
