    Description

    We found this place in October 2020, as we were searching for a quiet, beautiful place in nature to start an intentional community. Currently we are a group of nine- 6 adults and 3 children, a dog, and a cat. Our vision is to create a stable, small community focused on spiritual healing, self-sufficiency, sustainability, art, education, ecology, cultural exchange and living in harmony with the elements. Our ideas are vast- permaculture, ecological living, upholding knowledge and traditions of indigenous cultures, hosting retreats, workshops, ceremonies, and cultural events. We are still in the beginnings.. the property is just now at a liveable standard, but there is so much work to be done..! We welcome with open arms volunteers to experience the beauty of living in harmony with the surrounding nature- anyone who can contribute with art, skills, physical labour, knowledge and experience to share. (At this point, though, we need physical labour more than anything!) We are located outside a tiny village, in a quiet old campground with several cottages and a main building that once served as a restaurant, with a large industrial kitchen, several rooms, facilities for campers, and a main room for socializing. We are on a small peninsula, hugged by the river Dyje and surrounded by rich forest.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer a taste of living simply in nature, while also enjoying the company of new friends from all over the world (as well as the furry forest neighbours ;) ) We are an international group, and love meeting new friends to expand our community and world knowledge, as everyone can gain knowledge through these unique experiences. Fires are an almost daily practice, as well as "family" dinners. Travellers will get the chance to learn new skills, try their hand at new projects, and all the while enjoying the beautiful nature surrounding us here.
