Hello fellow travelers, adventurers, nomads, city dwellers and hermits :)
After a very bad experience with our last workawayer, I will only reply to messages which clearly describe specific things you are good at and can possibly do in the house and garden while here. This is not an offer of free accommodation in our dream home, it is an exchange... we work hard to take care of our home and improve it all the time and we have no interest in coming back home to house which is in worse state than when we left. If you want to stay, you need to convince us that it will be better to have you, than renting it out :)
We are Dagi & Maara and we love to create together, recently we created the most precious thing - a familly - bringing one wise creature, our son Kryštof, to this planet :)
And we have a lot of plans in our heads what we want to create. Our dream is to create a permaculture garden and edible forest with bistro, which would serve food made from plants from the garden and yummy handmade chocolate pralines and cakes by Dagi as well as selection of delicious beers brewed by Maara. We are on the way to this dream at present living in the countryside, yet very close to Prague in little wooden house with small garden, where we grow some herbs and vegetables and host two cats Uršula and Rukola and sometimes many more cats from the neighborhood :)

If you are looking for some time in nature with yourself, you can enjoy our beautiful cosy home, which we love so much. Everything is here for you to use. If you are into music, there is also a small studio. Hammock in the garden to relax. There are fields with cows and horses just behind the house and also forrest nearby. It is also possible to get the horse riding lessons at the horse farm nearby. You can experience the czech countryside living, all the neighboors are really helpful and friendly, it is a tiny village. And if you feel like being more cultural, Prague is 45 mins by train, train stop Bojanovice is 10 minutes walk from the house.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
At the moment we are travelling a lot and looking for someone to housesit and catsit :) Basically just let cats out and in the house, feed them and give them water. Take care of the house, keep it clean and functioning, water the indoor plants and take care of the garden, mostly just water the plants in dry days. If you have spare time and want to help us bit more, we would be delighted. There are few projects on the house and in the garden which you can get creative with. It would be some gardening, to treat the wooden fence, terrace and pergola, clean windows, minor renovations on the house, organisation help or just get creative with what you love doing or what you feel the house and the garden would appreciate.
In the near future we want to build eco sustainable garden house and studio with sauna, which we will need some help with and where we can also accomodate workawayers.
This host offers a language exchange
Always happy to practice english, spanish or french. We can help with czech and english.
When we are gone you have the whole house for yourself with attic bedroom and double bed. We want to build little eco garden house in the future with sauna and massage studio, where would also be space for workawayers, maybe you can help us with building in the future :)
There is stove, but also electric heating system, drinking water from the well in the whole house, but it is quite hard water, internet connection through wi-fi is slower, but fine to most work.
Fully equipped kitchen with some basic dry food is here for you to use, but you would have to buy fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy or meat. There are delivery options as well, so you don't have to go shopping if you don't want to.
There is no drainage yet, some used water goes to septic and some to ground, so it is super important that you don't use any chemicals, e.g. cleaning products or cosmetics. We are non-toxic household and we want to keep it like that. All non-toxic cleaning/washing products will be here for you to use.
The village is tiny as I said, there is only one pub, which has a great atmoshphere, there are two food shops in the village next to us and more pubs, post office etc. You can borrow our two bikes to get around or you can use train or bus, it is 15 minutes to nearest town Mníšek pod Brdy or 45 minutes to Prague. We also have Volvo 850, but that can be borrowed only to very skillful drivers only after you give us a ride to see :D
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Maara is working online a lot, the wi-fi here is not the fastest, but sufficient.
Not in the garden because that is tiny, but there is space on the path next to the house.
We have cats, so not all pets are welcome, probably only male cats, very cat friendly small dogs, rats, rabbits and other small pets :)
More than two
15 hours/week- no food
