We are a happy family of five (Ágnes (9), Mátyás (6) Zalán (2), and parents Anna and Ákos), living in a beautiful Hungarian village (Gheorghieni) near the city Cluj Napoca, in Transylvania. We've moved here 4 years ago, to escape from the busy city life, and we have found what we were looking for: our house it's on a hill close to a forest, so we often see deer, squirrels, rabbits. We have a small garden, where we try to grow the necessary organic vegetables for our family. Dad, Ákos, is Biology-Geography teacher, and many times organizes activities, camps for his students, where the family also go, so our kids are used with being with people of different age, culture; they are curious to find out new things and they love to play. We have also been hosting guests for 10 years, through another website, and this year would like to host people for longer periods.
Hope to meet YOU soon!

We would like to host somebody who is open to be part of our family for a few weeks. We could share our traveling and cultural experiences, as we have travelled in several places in Romania and abroad. In summer period dad is also on vacation, we plan to make trips in the country, where you are also welcomed to join us.
We are flexible so duties can be discussed depending on the given situation. But generally, we need some help around the house (general duties like: helping with cooking, dish washing, cleaning, etc) and garden (we try to grow our own vegetable), maybe some painting, maybe babysitting, maybe shopping. But we are open and flexible, so we can discuss about your preferences.
You could also play with our children, teach them English, learn Hungarian from them :), join us on our daily/weekly walks with the dogs etc.
In summer period dad is also on vacation, so we plan to make trips in the country, where you are also welcomed to join us.
If you speak German, I would be happy to take some lessons from you.
Accommodation and food will be provided by us. We like healthy food, and we are open to try new cuisines. We lived in New Zealand and the USA for several months where we have tried local food, and some of these have integrated in our meals.
You will have your own room in the house, we have two bathrooms and a kitchen that you will need to share with us. The house has 4 rooms, and a cosy terrace outside with a beautiful view to the valley and the mountains.
We do not have television and we prefer not to use telephone, tablet or other devices while we are with the children.
We have 2 dogs and cats, all of them outside.
We like traveling, so we can share our experiences with you, recommend you some of the nicest place to visit in Romania if you plan to spend some extra time.
Our village is very close to the city Cluj Napoca, there is a bus taking you every hour to the city, where everyone can find many cultural activities. The surrounding is beautiful, forest is close, there is biking possibilities, there is also a salt lake near.
