We, Ira and Vitali,live together with our wonderful daughter Mirka on a beautiful piece of land located in the hills, not far from the mountains and high alpine meadows.
Few neighbors are living a self sustainable life style in the surrounding hills, besides that, natural forests and meadows are enclosing the area.

Everything on our property, including our house, we build ourselves, trying to use naturals materials as much as possible.

We are keeping two Hutsul horses,chickens, ducks and a dog at our place.
But most importantly: we are offering tourists a variety of outdoor activities. From hiking and skiing in the mountains, to climbing, paragliding or colllecting herbs and mushrooms in the woods.

We are offering one small apartment for rent and now wish to build an additional wooden cabin to host more tourists.

Therefore, work for volunteers will consist mainly of helping at the construction side. Vitali is a tough guy and together with our horse Tibor he can manage a lot, but time is always short, and he could really need a helping hand. If you are interested in ecological ways of building, this work will be perfect for you. Vitali is pulling the necessary wood out with horse power ), the most environmental friendly and fun way to do it!

But there is also other things that could be done and Ira is always happy to have a helping hand in the household or with Mirka.

As a volunteer you will have the chance to improve your building skills and get to know the work with horses. You can have an insight into the old self-sustainable life style of the Zakarpathian population and learn about the wonderful Carpathian mountains.

In your free time you have the chance to explore the beautiful nature, ride on our horses, go rock climbing on nearby rocks, hike into the breathtaking mountains, explore the Zakarpathian culture and the last virgin forests in all of Europe!

Your accommodation will either be in our second apartement or at our friendly neighbours place, just five minutes away. ) The level of comfort may vary, since we are constantly working on improving it.

We will be happy to hear from you!
