  • Description


    Hello everyone,

    we are an old couple living with a grandmother, 2 smal dogs, 5 cats and 15 chicken in an old farm in a smal village in a mountainous landscape. Our farm has 1100 square meters with an 900 square meters garden. A few years ago we bought the farm and started to restore everything. But we are not finished yet and both getting old and a bit weak.
    We leave here in harmony with the nature. Our garden is organically grown and everyhing around us is green.
    The house is great and has two big barns with hay. But inside it looks more like a building site caused of the renovation.

    We already have no experience as workaway volunteers but we are looking forward to the adventure of being hosts.
    Our english is not the "yellow of the egg" but we try to do our best :)
