    Descripción

    A small house in a small town in a small country in Eastern Europe. Town where there is nothing to do - only beatutiful nature, 5 small lakes, bird song and four seasons. And wi-fi all around you (maybe not all around but in our house and free certainly). It's 25 km from a little wooden town - university-town Tartu with cinemas, theatres, art gallerys, pop-up caffees and there really is free wi-fi all around you. Transport by bus is free of charge!
    We live in a hundred year old wooden house - family with 2 middle-aged women, suave teenage girl, a dog and a cat. We are friendly with bohemian vibe, like to meet new and friendly people. We are in the middle of renovating our house. We use natural/traditional/recycled materials as much as possible. There is a lot of different things to do. We can show you how to mix and use natural paint with pigments (egg, caseins etc), we can teach you how to make wallpaper. There is plastering, painting and a little woodwork inside.
    We have a bigger project in mind - to have a rocket stove heated floor outside under a dome. We are in the middle of this project for now. Our goal is to finish it during this summer.
    We are willing to learn tips and tricks and stuff about doing things differently.


    You can go fishing (two of these lakes are at the centre of our town, one of them only 2 minutes walk) or go hiking with bicycles.

    Estonians are considered to be quiet and reserved, ecpecially with new people. Maybe we are. Maybe not :D
    We are looking forward to meet new people from around the world with different kind of culture and are happy to learn everything new. Not only languages but cuisine, traditions, life styles etc.
    We love reading, photograhy and painting, bicycle trips and cooking, boardgames and entertaining friends.
    We have a lot of friends with different backrounds and skills and hobbies. One of our friends is a neighbour with exquisite collection of board games and we can book a 12 h gamenight with him :)

    Elva is a town ment for nature lovers. Hiking trails, lakes, this is the finishing spot of Tartu marathon (cross-countyi skiing). Parks, lakes, river and even a forest inside our town makes it the best place for all kind of leisure and activities. If you want to see a bit more crowded places, then second largest city of Estonia - Tartu - is only 45 min trip by free busride from here. There is also a train station to go for longer trips to Valga or Tallinn or even Riga.
