  • Description


    Hello lovely people, we are Markus, Laura and our 1.5yrs old daugther Loumi. About a year ago we bought a big piece of land and an old farm in the south of Austria (the warmest part of Austria with lots of sunshine) where we live now together with our dog, cats and chickens.
    We didn't buy this farm just for ourselves though, but rather to build a community. We have lots of space for parking RV's and Campervans. We have built communal areas such as kitchen and sanitary rooms with a Sauna, we have a swimming pool and fire place.
    We also have a 3500m2 big field that we slowly want to transform into a permaculture adventure garden with lots of fruits and vegetables to pick while walking through. Also, we are currently renovating a second apartment for another family to live with us permanently. There's also a 120m2 seminar house that is waiting to be renovated and lots and lots of gardening word to do.
    Apart from all the "must dos" there are plenty of big white walls that are waiting to be painted on (artistically).
    We eat mostly vegan except for the eggs from our chickens. So if (vegan) cooking is something you love, maybe you can also bring this to the place :).

    We love to have a good time around the fire pit, we love dancing and celebrating life together in a conscious way. You are welcome to enjoy a beer and some good music and bonfires together (just please don't get wasted and furious in our place :D)

    We are looking forward to having you here!
    Much love,
    Laura, Markus & Loumi

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live close by a nature habitat and in a very quiet area in general. there's lots of nature around and space to breathe and relax. We speak german and english. We like deep talks more than superficial chatting and are into personal and spiritual development, meditation and healing ourselves (and the world).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are quite off grid, so there is not so much public transport, but if you are a responsible driver you are welcome to use our car to get groceries or go on trips sometimes. we live in an area close to lots of spas and springs and also very close to the hungarian border, where you can also visit spas or get massages :). There is lots of nature and forests to explore around our home and you are always welcome to just enjoy the peace and quiet around our land, sit by the fire together at night, use our sauna, or just sit in the sun :)
    Oh, as mentioned before we would appreciate if you don't consume meat on our land (there's several reasons for that, if you want to know feel free to ask).
