We are in our 50's, couple of entrepreneurs, who moved from town to countryside. We spent most of our time at our old house in orchard or in reconstructed tavern in the charming landscape of hamlets situated at the frontier between Slovakia and Morava. It is picturesque and replenished with fine views. The round forms often alternate with limestone rocks. The Nature Reserve of Veľká Javorina protects the original woods on the flanks of the tallest mountain of this mountain range. We love to have friends around.
Welcome to our project, we have reconstructed an old tavern and start to build there a bistro and accommodation for visitors of this beautiful piece of Slovakia. During this part of year, we prepare the opening of restaurant and accommodation and start to pick up fruits.
We are run yoga classes and gong meditation. You can be a part of it.
We grow a traditional fruit orchard. We planted over fruit 80 trees and bushes last year. We have sheep in the orchard. We often organise activities with volunteers there. If you are ready to participate at the hard work in the country, be our guest.
We have a flat in Bratislava too, where is our main job, that means, that some days of the week you can stay in the orchard without us.
We will share with you our interest in arts, nature, music & good food.

Help around the house
This is one of unique places in Slovakia, where for centuries man cooperated with nature and a cultural country has been established. After violent collectivisation the tradition has been interrupted. Our goal is to establish it again. We are not professionals in farm work or reconstruction, but even small number of people with good will can achieve big goals.
Come and watch the many stars in the sky.
Explore beautiful countryside. It's a good opportunity for bicycle riders or hikers. Many interesting agricultural and art project arise here. We will be happy to show you around.
