"Pauza" (Pause) is our homestead and a place for people, located in the northern part of Małopolska (Lesser Poland voivodeship). "Pauza" is a place to just be, to breathe. We provide relaxation, escape from everyday life, fresh air, smile, sounds and silence. We love to meet and greet new people.
We are surrounded by beautiful meadows and forests, which give you the opportunity to go hiking or biking, or just enjoy the beaty of nature itself during your free time. But if you want to go to Kraków, it is only 60 mins away by train. If you need help or advice we will be there for you, but you will have to arrange your own free time yourself.
Depending on the season, there will be different tasks to do, but we always welcome nm help with the animals (goats and chickens) and maintenance around the place. Many different skills are welcome and will be useful, as we are looking for help with making new garden beds, planting, harvesting and weeding, as well as maintaining the property and any tasks that come up, especially renovation ones.
We started converting our land into permaculture forest garden just few years ago. Our vegetable garden has many seasonal varieties and there's a lot of stuff that need to be done on a daily basis. There's always something, that you can help to make better!
We will together prepare and eat vegetarian/flexitarian meals.
We are offering 3 meals a day.
Workawayers will not be asked to help towards any business activity.
We'd rather people stay two weeks or more, but if it is not possible - don't hesitate to contact us, maybe we could arrange things differently.
We are looking forward to meet many new, interesting and different people, who are ready to share and learn new cultures.
