We are looking for long-term helpers mid June 2019 - October 2019.

Hello, we are Andrew and Sharon, an English couple who have moved full time to Hungary. Our small farmhouse and orchard is situated in the beautiful rural county of Tolna in a traditional agricultural village called Koppanyszanto. We have a small shop and pub within ten minutes walk and we are 12km from the town of Tamasi with its Thermal baths and around 40 kms from Lake Balaton. Transportation is very easy to our property.

We are surrounded by forests, trails and farmland if you like walking, cycling or ornithology
Most of the villagers are self sufficient and grow food and raise animals for this purpose. There are also 2 large bee farms in our street, There are also small vineyards at the back of our property with over 40 wine houses located in the forest

We own and manage our own 20 pitch camping and caravan site which takes up most of our time from April to October. Unfortunately during this period of time we are unable to look after and maintain our own garden, fruit trees, and organic vegetable garden and therefore require help in the following areas :
- Gardening Work including cutting of grass and weeding.
- Daily cleaning of family pool ( You will be able to have full use of this on your days off :) ) .
- Looking after the house and surrounds whilst we look after our guests.
- Picking fruit from the cherry, plum, and pear trees in the orchard garden.

If you do not have a camper van or similar and require accommodation we can provide our four berth helper caravan which has its own kitchen area , double bed and seating area inside and outside. It also has good WiFi reception for when you need to update your blog or contact family at home. This is all included within your stay.

We have gatherings around our communal fire in the summer evenings and you will be welcome to join in and chat with our guests and share travel experiences from all over the world
We only ask for minimum work of 3 - 4 hours a day such as grass cutting and general maintenance of our house and garden, pool cleaning etc.....and you get 2 days off a week to explore our beautiful area. We will provide one hot meal a day generally at lunchtime and eaten around the table with ourselves.

We would be willing to teach English to anyone who wishes to stay in exchange for the above. We can speak reasonable French and German plus a very small amount of Hungarian

We do have transport you can use or we will take you to and from the local town if you need to visit the shops. Hitch hiking is fine here, or there is a bus stop in the village.

We look forward to welcoming you to " The Real " Hungary.
