Hi! I'm Radu, living in the centre of Brasov, and I've been working for a few years now (on and off) on improvements to the house in Sinca-Noua , a nearby village, where I grew up. This year I'm hoping that we can make some real progress at the house, so am looking for volunteers to help in finishing off the building and transforming garden into something beautiful again: generally tidying the place up a bit!

The village is set in the beautiful countryside a short drive through the mountains and forest from Brasov and the house is across the road from a little river and with glorious mountain views, particularly spectacular from upstairs.

I speak Romanian, English and German.

The house in Sinca-Noua needs some work, initially to tidy the garden and inside too, and then to do some light building work - laying some insulation upstairs, fitting some new windows, a little roofing (slipped tiles) generally decorating and finishing the cosmetics of the place as it's still a little barren inside. There's something for everyone here whether indoor or out, skilled or not yet so skilled.

If you have more specific skills, building or otherwise, we can put them to their best use as you see fit.
You would be staying with me in the house at Sinca-Noua during the week where there is a spare bed and/or a sofa in the living room.We can also go into the city of Brasov ,where I have a spare bed and sofa-bed in the living room of my apartment in central Brasov, from where I can show you around the city if you like.

There is no shortage of running hot and cold water for showers etc. (though I prefer the drinking water from the well in the garden!). In Sinca-Noua, internet access is by mobile internet dongle with a limited bandwidth, and you can use your mobile data as well if you have it.With mobile phone you will have perfect internet connection as in a big city .

Brasov is situated at the foot of the Carpathians providing mountainous views from all over the city. In your spare time, there are many sights to see in the city - The Black Church (Biserica Neagra), the German centre and its fortifications, the main square (Piata Sfatului)... Additionally there are ski resorts nearby where you can not only go skiing (for volunteers in the winter!), but also enjoy the stunning mountainous scenery and view the full extent of the old town, snaking through in the valley between the mountains before the more recent neighbourhoods sprawl off into the distance. Of course, Bran Castle is nearby too, of Dracula fame!

Busses and trains run to Brasov regularly - you shouldn't have too much trouble getting here and travelling onwards.
