    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you learn how to take a step back from the often too busy lifestyle and have time to get to know yourself, your needs, your strengths and your creativity, without pressure or judgement. We try to live in a way that is traditional for this area, where you will still find shepherds with their flock of sheep walking the streets. People here make their own cheese, wine and bread and are proudly offering them to taste for everyone. Living a simple sustainable life means to use as little modern technology as possible. We find that we cannot live a independent life for as long as we are depending on items. We hope that anyone who visits can mainly learn something about themselves.
    The village we live in is situated on the side of the mountains and therefore, the views are always wonderful and there are endless hikes to be had. We hope to attract travelers who wish to live in harmony with nature and reconnect with our roots. It is so easy to forget the beautiful basics.

    We are just in the beginning of setting up our farm and will be happy for help with caring for our the veggie and fruitgarden, building a breadoven and some shelter out of wood. We are doing everything ourselves here, so if you are searching for a place to try out stuff you have learned or always wanted to learn, or just wanna hang out and make music, we are open for all people who love a simple life in nature. (at the moment without electricity or internet).
    We don´t believe in asking for a set hours nor day requirement and we don´t think people should work when they feel like resting.
