  • Description


    Hi, me and my partner have a small hobby farm in southern Slovakia. No animals as were mostly in England for work etc. We're slowly renovating the house and doing general DIY and gardening etc. Our biggest barn is in need of some TLC so I need some help sorting this out for a couple of weeks. We have a mini digger and tractor and lots of tools and equipment but always run out of time. The area is very peaceful and great for walks, there's lots of wildlfe about close to the house and generally its a great place to relax. All food and drink will be supplied, including any outings etc. that we go on or bbqs or dinner invites. I also like a little archery/woodworking to make crazy furniture and wood turning on our lathe and my partner likes to play the piano. I'm still finishing the pizza oven but its fully working and food tastes great cooked in it. We want to be off-grid eventually and are slowly buying solar panels /batteries, wind turbine and all the accessories to get them to work together plus generators. We have 64 acres plus a small hunter's cabin to renovate for accommodation a short stroll away.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We don't tend to work the clock round, we like to go to the local thermal spa , out for meals or trips to local towns and sites, hiking, bike rides etc. We don't expect any helpers to work like slaves just helpful people to help alongside us. When we go out shopping or for a relaxing coffee or a beer we all go out and chill, we find pacing ourselves is much better than frantically rushing around. Any musical interest is always a plus and if you enjoy cooking like we do then we can always take turns

    The house is in Opavske Lazy. Opava is a small village nearby and "lazy" means countryside, so we are literally in the countryside area of the village of Opava. It is in the Banská Bystrica region in central southern Slovakia. The nearest town is Veľký Krtíš which is about 10 Km away - there is a bus stop close by and there is a bus most days but the house is in the wilds - population density is about 20/ sq Km. Wildlife nearby includes foxes, hares, lynx (rarely), bears (rarely), wild boar and lots and lots of deer.
