  • Descripción


    Hello, thank you for reading our profile.

    We are a family, Gyuri (42), Petra (39) and our sons, Csikó (4), Doboka (2) and Regő (new born). We have been travelling in Europe as workawayers for years, looking for the perfect community to stay at, but we could not found it so we have decided to make our own dreams come true and invite others to join us. We have bought 2 years ago a land, almost 10 hectares on the SW part of Hungary, one hour from the Austrian and the Croatian border. The village is called Becsvölgye. We have a well elaborated plan to set up a more or less self-sustaining land in the valley with eco houses for us and for anybody else who would join us. There is spring water on the land but no electricity, we plan to set up solar panels.

    We also have a house with tap water and electricity in the same village 10 min walk from the yurt. We live in the house for winter, there we have a veggie garden, chickens and ducks. There is a guest room, fridge and washing facilities. In the valley we have a yurt, a half-made eco house, donkeys, pigs and lots of goats. We milk them and prepare cheese.

    We have some family friends here, we help each other many times, but as Petra is taking care of the kids, Gyuri has to do most of the jobs alone, so we would like to accept more people from all around the world who are interested in learning eco house and mansory stove building and setting up the self-sustaining land. We are not looking for workers but for co-operative, simple, straightforward and independent people who are interested in this peaceful but sometimes hardworking way of living. You can stay as long as you want, for one week or months if you like here.

    Working hours: 4-5 hours daily with days off, depending on your physical condition, type of work. We are definitely not looking for slaves. 😀

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We live a simple and modest life try to not harm our environment but nurish it while setting up our homes. We are looking for people who think the same way. We are in the process of learning as well so we can learn together.

  • Alojamiento


    You are welcome to live in the house in the guest room and use everything there, the kitchen, the bathroom, the washing machine. However if you would like, we can set up a tent for you in the land (in our climate living in a tent is only comfortable between May and October, depending on the weather). Or you can use the yurt or sleep in your own van.

    Usually we make food together but you can make your own food as well. We mostly eat vegetarian and healthy meals ( aLL THe MALEs EAT MEAt, WE ARe FULLY SELFSUPplEING), make our own bread, buy bio veggies and local fruits, homemade milk and eggs, but sometimes we have venison and fish as well. We make goat cheese and cottage cheese. We try to avoid unhealthy processed food. We cannot support very special diets. We have veggies in the garden.

    We respect your privacy, but our sons are very friendly and we have a dog as well, so don't come if you don't like dogs or kids. :) You can either come alone or as a couple or with friends, kids.

    Algo más...

    Currently no constant wifi but we can always share ours. In the valley mobile signal is limited.
    We can supply you with a bicycle, car (donkey) and you can visit around. There are buses as well that go to nearby cities and we can also give you a lift to the nearest city, Zalaegerszeg (20 min). This is a beautiful region with a lot of forests where you can take excursions and collect mushrooms with us. In the weekends there are local markets around. The region is also famous of thermal baths but there are more lakes around where you can swim in the summer for free or fish.

    We often make fire and invite friends over for a meal or cooking together. We enjoy playing board/card games, chess or whatever game in the evenings (at least we did before the 3rd baby was born...)

    Our ten hectares of land is waiting for you to choose the best place for your van. Perhaps next to the fountain under the pine trees? Or near the yurt? At the peak of the land? In the forest? You can try all! :)
