  • Description


    I am Hari and me and Gabriela bought this old farm about two years ago. Since then we have been renovating it , we dont want to take a lot of loans so renovation happens step by step. Gabriela is a nurse and also since more than 20 years like me a yoga , and meditation teacher. Sometimes we have small inner retreats in the house for up to 10 participants. We like to create some more living spaces this summer. We usually live by our selves with our big lovely dog, hens and a rabbit in a really wonderful old house in beautiful surroundings. In the summer Gabriela will to work twice a week while I am home all the time working on the house and doing some work with clients at zoom.

    We had some volunteers last year and we really enjoyed their company and their input, we are social and friendly and look forward to have you to came and stay with us for some time. Let us chat and see what is possible.
