  • Description


    I am an artist in search of a deeper truth through painting, storytelling and self enquiry. I believe in a good and loving Universe. I believe we are all connected and here for a higher purpose. I live a peaceful and simple life in Buzau Mountains, Romania. I am passionate about art, nature, psychology and good life.
    I live in a beautiful and still serene landscape, with small villages, among hills and forests. Valea Buzaului is to be discovered, still traditional and wild, a place where one can search for its own meaning and can reflect clearly one's soul. Search for "Tinutul Buzaului" for more informations or photos.
    We just open a community art center in one of the villages nearby. Help is needed with running the art centre (helping with visitors mostly). Baby sitting will be an amazing help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can enjoy the rich and generous local culture, stories and myths, discover its amazing nature (beautiful area for trips and hiking) and its spiritual sites (29 complex hermits caves in the area) and many more.

  • Help


    I offer accommodation and full board meals in exchange for help in the house and garden, babysitting, taking care of the dogs (walking/training) the dogs. Depending on the season, help in the garden is expected. We own a large fruits orchard for home use and we grow our own vegetables.
    Starting 2020, help is needed in renovating Community Art Center in the village (painting, wood work, general renovation).
    Starting Summer 2020 help is also needed in running the art center.

  • Accommodation


    Single bedroom, shared bathroom. Shared meals, I love to cook, mostly vegetarian (fish sometimes). Most food here is provided by locals, clean and healthy vegetables. Help with cooking and housing in genereal is expected. I see it more like a shared, nice experience.
    Please note there are 2 in house cats residents, and 4 dogs outside.

    What else ...

    Local activities include nature walks, waterfalls visiting, swimming in Buzau river or Siriu Lake, hiking in the mountains, amber discovery (natural mine sight). Art is always an option since I paint and can provide all materials necessary. Also, there are hermits caves in the area which can be visited.
