We invite you to experience Lithuania (LT)- country in the geografical center of Europe. We live in a beautiful northen LT village, 20 km from Latvian border, close to the road ViaBaltic (E67).
WE. Daiva – lithuanian, is biologist and tourist guide, she also speaks English and Russian. Kees - dutch, also speeks English, German, French and Spanish. We invite you together with us to dream and to make dreams come true by creativity and exchanging.
OUR FAMILY PROJECTS. We have a vision about a self-sufficient compound of two projects:
1. Mini CAMPING + Camper PLACE. It is situated in our homestead. We live in a small village. Camping already runs from few years.
2. EcoFARM + HOSTEL- located 700 meters from our camping. We are starting up. We bought an old farm with 1.5 ha of land. Between the farm and the main Baltic's road E67 is 1 km wide forest. Next to the farm is a nature reserve. We started to adapt the farm for travelers, who want to stay in authentic lithuanian environment which prevailed more than fifty years ago, when almost every lithuanian family was following organic farming principles and respectful use of natural gifts. And for the future we would like to provide a meeting place for individuals and for goups from all over the world to learn LT fauna and flora and to exchange in the field of natural agriculture. And we would like to offer for the visitors of our mini camping fruits and vegetables. Everything for us is more like a dream - hobby.
PETS. We have a cat and dog.
ACCOMMODATION. Threre are few possibilities. Tent, room or straw bed ...in the barn - belongs what we have available at that moment. The first or the parallel job will be to settle to live in the farm house: it need to paint the interior and to finish modern toilet and shower. But even now there is compost toilet and a sun heated water shower. And we are planning to build more such eco things. It is also possible to have a room in our house also. There is hot shower, wc, internet WiFi... Using of our bikes is possible. There is a pond for swimming and fishing near.
FOOD. We are not vegetarians, but meat does not play the main role in our diet.
VOLUNTEERING.We invite you together with us to expand and maintain the eco garden, yard care, small pond and streams flowing into it. Old apple-trees garden asking for rejuvenation. And sometimes it may be necessary cleaning farm buildings. There is a need for repairing works in the farm buildings: house, old barn, new barn, summer kichen, tea house, cellar… an ancient Lithuanian sauna is waiting for to put some hands on it also. Sometimes we need some help in the camping.
TRAVEL. Daiva can recomend you how to travel in the neighborhood (we live in the unique karst region of LT), and can recommend interesting places of visit in LT and Latvia.
CALENDAR. Welcome in summer (preferably >1month). Please contact us at least 2 weeks in advance.
Nearest airports: Riga (LV) 100 km, Vilnius (LT) 200 km. Nearest town Pasvalys - 10 km from where we live, we can pick you up there, if you are coming by bus, if let us know :)
Kindly regards,
Daiva&Kees.
