Our Homestay is located in the North part of Muntenia, on the Transfagarasan road DN7C (It is the road that climbs to the highest altitude in Romania, 2042 meters, in the Glacial Hollow Balea.) The farm is 500m over sea level, with forests, pasture lands, hay fields. The house is 10 km far from Curtea de Arges and 25 km from Cetatea Poenari (Draculaís Castle) and Barajul Vidraru (Vidraru Dam).

We cultivate in small quantities vegetables, cereals and fruit trees. We have also some chickens, 3 cats and 2 dogs. The dogs are trained to find wild truffles.

Size of farm: around 3 ha, but only around 0.7 ha is cultivated with vegetables and cereals

Description of farm: We are not really a farm. We have land and we cultivate it with vegetables and cereals for our needs. Cultivation of land is also a tradition for generation in our village and family.
Is not much to do in our little farm, but we have a daily routine (2-4 hours)
We have a good relationship with our neighbors, so you can help them sometimes (only if you want )

Volunteer accommodation: We live a minimalistic lifestyle. We have a nice caravan for volunteers, which usually it can be used for 2-4 people, but we can accept maximum 2 people in the same time. The shower with washing mashing is in a separate building where you will have free access wherever you need.

Description of volunteer activities: working in the fields, gardening, planting, weeding, feeding and taking care of animals, hay making, truffle hunting.

Additional comments: Work is determined by everyone capabilities, skills and interests. We welcome and appreciate with open heart every help.
I have a job in the city and sometimes I donít have time to help my grandma in the garden, because of that we need a helping hand. In summer season I am searching for the truffles and my free time is even more limited.

It will be very good if you want to learn some romanian word, to communicate more easily with my grandma and neighbors.

In my free time I can show you around , we can go to search for the truffles and cook them, making photos, meeting nice people... You can visit as much as you can in your free time.
