    Hey, Hola, Szia!

    Come and join us in the beautiful Hungarian countryside. We have a herbal tea house and school in Bér (3045).

    Currently, we are in the middle of building a herbal tea house that is part of a traditional Hungarian peasant house. We live near to the biggest forest in the North of Hungary and located at the foothills of the Cserhat mountain range . There is a vast range of biodiversity here, the forest is rich with mushrooms and many medicinal herbs.

    I live with three amazing girls, my partner Anita and our two children Zsofi (7 months) and Panka (3 yrs old) I am a herbalist and interior designer. Currently, I am working on refurbishing our traditional local farmhouse with traditional techniques in order to protect the main design and structure of the house.

    We plan to open the first local herb tea house and school around May 2019.

    If you interested in nature, herbs, tea making, building, design and going back to the roots of simple living then please don't hesitate to contact Daniel.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    For the people that love being in nature, this is an opportunity to get to learn about herbs, plants and discover rare flowers. You can learn about different types of fungus, wildlife in the forest

    Step out of your comfort zone, without shoes and re-discover the forest, meadows and wildlife in the Hungarian countryside.

    Nature is a cure!
