We are Agatha, Law student, singer and artist and Sophia her mother, Vipassana meditator, Sufi student, spiritual integration therapist and writer. Together we are restoring a beautiful old house and two acres of land in a national forest nature reserve just 20 minutes outside Györ. We love positive self motivated people and welcome help in renovating the tanya, building the new structures and tending the land that we need to complete the project. If you are inexperienced be happy to learn new skills, we always are learning something here. I used to be a journalist, photographer and renovate ancient buildings so I can share a lot of knowledge on building, permaculture, foraging , tree planting and food gardening.
Energetically this is a power centre, on top of a pyramid like hill, known as vine hill. So we see ‘here ‘ as a healing spiritual nature centred sanctuary, permaculture small holding and ceremonial space all in one, as it is naturally anyway.

Nature is active all year round, and so as we live in these cycles the help we welcome varies too. The house might want rejuvenation, like oiling the wooden windows, painting doors, tiles, painting a wall ( mural ? ) The Trees might need coppicing, preparing firewood, re-painting fences, painting walls ( more murals ? ) building, carpentry, woodwork, food gardening, planting , foraging, for example today Hazlenut and Sweet Chestnut tree planting. Hole digging!

Our experience is with Sivananda Yoga, Vipassana Meditation, AuraTransformation, Kambo Medicine and we are happy to introduce you to these methods if you are interested. We speak English Italian Hungarian and a little German.

Animals / children / tents/ Motorhomes welcome, camp under the stars - magical skies. We have a large attic room about 60 ms for guests; please bring your own camping mattress, sleeping bag and hot water bottle during the winter months and appropriate clothes as we dont have central heating yet. But we do have two bathrooms and oodles of hot water. There is one other attic room with a super comfy double bed and we give that to long term stayers, so you might be lucky!
Wifi via data sims available in Gyor - vodafone have the strongest coverage.

If you realise that you really want to rest and just hang out, you’re most welcome and we can arrange a small payment to cover your costs. Generally we work for six hours during the day , however it’s flexible and so much depends on weather, people dynamics and which aspect of the project we are working on. So sometimes we might just decide on an excursion or work through a whole day to finish a roof before the rain starts - our request is be flexible and open to the adventure :) its magical here and too spontaneous to be predictable, although we are prepared for most eventualities.

Györ is located within an hours reach of the three major capitals of the area, Budapest Bratislava and Vienna, and is the best base for sightseeing and thermal bathing!
A beautiful pre Roman city with a series of museums and art galleries, a Roman and Baroque quarter. There is a bus stop 15 mins walk from our house along the magic forest which connects you to Györ and the other towns in the area including Babolna, home to the Hungarian National Arabian Horse Stud.
