Séjour min. souhaité : Au moins deux semaines
We own a rural property close to the largest city on the western side of Romania, Timisoara.
Currently, we are planning to renovate a former farm house, built in the 1960's and never used since, that used to belong to our grandparents and start a small animal farm there.
Visiting us could give you a nice opportunity to experience rural Romania and at the same time, due to the proximity of some very interesting urban sites close by, you'd have the chance to visit Timisoara - 55 km away. (There is a daily bus to and from Timisoara while we can also help you, either finding you rides towards the city or drive you ourselves, sometimes). The city of Vršac in Serbia is 125 km South while the city of Szeged in Hungary is 160 km West, away of our location.
Closest airports are in: Timisoara (Romania), Belgrade (Serbia) and Budapest (Hungary); depending on the timing we may pick you or help you find rides.

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
Surroundings are quite picturesque, perfect for those into earthing, forest bathing, stars gazing. Interested? If so, how about enjoying nature in a Romanian village close to both the Serbian and Hungarian border ?
If so, we are happy to welcome you!
Green setting with lots of green pastures, deep forests, tranquility and clean air.
We are looking for volunteers who can stay two weeks or more.
Both of us have been visiting quite a lot of the EU member countries (more than 50% of them) while Sebastian has also spent more than a year in Asia on a one year study program ( public policy). We are both able to speak English; being Latin we are also able to understand lots of Italian (easiest for us), French, Spanish (Portuguese too, but a bit more difficult).
Timisoara, the largest city close-by, is about to be EU's cultural capital for the year of 2023 while it's also the Romanian city that has sparkled the change of regime upon the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989.

Food provisions shall be offered for the whole period of your stay, so that you can invest all of your energy into helping us finish the renovation project of the house :) (sometimes, we might have time to even cook it for you, but most times you'll have to cook for yourself).
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
Currently pushing our limits, sort of, on learning Japanese, Greek and Dutch.
We are about to secure an accommodation , rented from neighbors in the same village.
Should you decide to visit us:
- the village is located 55 km North-East of Timisoara, so Timisoara it's really accesible,
- Lipova/Radna is 4o km away, as well with the Soimos stronghold, dating back from 1278,
- Charlottenburg, the only round-shaped village in Romania ( placed by the country’s Culture Ministry on the list of historical monuments) is only 7 km away.
Accès Internet limité
Nous avons des animaux
Nous sommes fumeurs
Possibilité d’accueillir les digital nomads
Currently the house does not have Wi-Fi, but there is a location in the same village that's managed to to somehow hook the place to the internet. Should a longer stayer would appear we'd probably analyze how to go about it to have the internet problem solves
Possibilité d'accueillir les animaux
You can even bring a horse if you want :)
