  • Description

    Description

    Update! We need someone for August, to help Ákos finishing the fence. Painting the wooden planks, screw them on the frame, etc.
    We are a happy family of five (Ágnes (11), Mátyás (8) Zalán (4), and parents Anna and Ákos), living in a beautiful Hungarian village (Gheorghieni) near the city Cluj Napoca, in Transylvania. We've moved here 6 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!
