  • Description


    Hey dear Workawayers :) Come and join us (Robert, Orsi and two black cats) in a small, fairytale village near to the lake Balaton! Robi is an architect, so if you would like to see non-existing architectural solutions in renovating, this is the right place for you. Orsi is a yoga instructor and a massage therapist, working in several festivals in Europe. We are trying to create an open space for people all over the world, who are ready to give helping hands if needed.
    There are permanently several things to do: picking fruits in our huge garden, next year we are planning to build a small lake as well (told ya, the garden is big ;), renovating a 100 (or more) year old house step by step.
