  • Description


    My place is a small village in Beskidy mountains (part of Cartpathians). I invite here everyone who would like to spend some time close to nature, at the area of Natural Park. I'm having here 3young cabardian horses (naturally from Kaukaz mountains). There's also some work to do in the garden and general maintenance of a wooden cottage.

    I also need someone who will teach me English better.

    I invite people without addictions and willing to help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am working with wood and clay, making beautiful wooden desks and paintings, as well as building clay stoves - I can teach you some of these skills if you're interested.
    The place is located in low mountains, close to Bieszczady mountains, not so distanced from Ukrainian and Slovak border. This area is a very artistic region, where you can discover icon painters and traditional wooden architecture and many others aspects of forgotten eastern culture. And of course every day you're living among fierce mountain's nature, old forests and wild animals, with sky bright from stars every night.

    Most of all I'm looking for people interested in helping me with horses. Practical skills in horse riding are essential here, but at the same time the natural approach is also very welcome. Those young horses are very intelligent, interested in working with people, but they need a self-confident person, with experience in this kind of work.
    Moreover, there is an idea to create the garden at the nearest spring, so I'll be glad if someone would like to come and start it from the beginning - there's a space for that and some tools as well, only not enough time for me during the usual day ;)
    I live in a regional wooden cottage made in old carpatian style, which also need some help in basic daily works. Beside horses, two dogs and four cats are a part of my family, so taking care of them is a part of a common day.

  • Accommodation


    In my house there's a separate room with a lot of space, small bathroom and fireplace. There's also some space at the attic.
    About cooking, there is a possibility for both vegetarian or meat-eaters, but self-reliance is needed. I can provide you some vegetarian ingrediences from a local market, but if you can't survive without meat you have to buy it on your own. The nearest shop is 5 km from here. We can eat meals together, but cooperation is welcome :)

    Smoking, drugs and alcohol are not allowed.

    What else ...

    If you're using public transport to reach my place, you can arrive to Jasło or Krosno by bus (sometimes also train), then you may have an opportunity to catch a local-bus in direction of Nowy Żmigród or Dukla. If you have some troubles with reaching the destination on your own, I can pick you up from the nearest bigger town.
