We are Tibetan-Czech family with children (2 in 2020) building a Tibetan farm in Centre of Europe!

When we moved in (2019), there were old storehouse and 2 more old buildings. We live in huge 100 years old house with many rooms where our visitors can stay.
We have dozens of plans for future. Animals, garden, forest, house and another houses...
Sustainable living, self-sufficiency in food one day.
Happy animals, kids and community.

We plan to build a Tibetan chorten, mini Tibetan traditional houses in garden, wooden yurt, tee-pee,... organise Tibetan culture festivals, farmstay, Tibetan movie weekends etc..... maybe one miniature Potala Palace on the hill? Wow!

Huge permaculture garden and animals.

We try to live minimalist, save water, electrocity etc. Not to have low bills, but to do not harm the mother nature!
Zero waste!

Everybody is welcome to join, help, learn, teach, share and enjoy!


Storehouse, broken house - pile bricks, pile roof tiles, timbers etc. endless work... think of it as a MEDITATION and MINDFOCUSING excercise!

Garden - plough land for potatoes, grow trees and bushes, clean and fix old greenhouse...

Cut wood for winter!


We welcome everybody, single, couples, families, groups! Animals with you.

We warmly welcome people who lile cooking!

Smoking is strictly forbidden, if you sleep in tent in garden, no smoking too!

We love meeting people, we wish you can stay from 3-4 days to several weeks.

We cook together if you are ok. We eat everything, cook everything, oftenly simple food,
trying to buy local and organic vegetable, meat and milk products.

Simple private rooms in big old house which you can clean and fix by yourself!

your tent, sleeping bags,... in garden

We cook simple food, sometimes traditional Tibetan food. Meat ok. Vegan ok.

There is ONE BATHROOM in the huge house. Old, small. Water comes from old well in garden. Please SAVE WATER! We dony know how much water there is left :D

There is dry toilet outside. We really do not use drinking water to flush our own sht ;) Just imagine that!! :-O

There is dry toilet INSIDE during winter! Please eat healthy, dont use hormonal contraception, antibiotics etc. to make sure the mother land is not getting poison from us. And OUR garden is not getting poison from us -->> our food not getting poison!

You can learn Czech, Tibetan, Chinese languages, learn Tibetan cooking. Have endless talks on Tibet, culture, religion, philosophy, childcare, child education, homeschooling etc.

Will tell you how to find peace in your heart and your place in this life and become happier person!!

HAPPINESS! The secret of happiness! Very simple! Very obvious! But such difficult to achieve! Too sad that our parents didnt knew that!

One spoiler: manual work is the best meditation! They will never tell you in western so-called buddhist monasteries ;)

Nature retreat

We can play music together, games, cook, dance, enjoy, relax,....

We have 2 kids, so, there is no time to talk with us sit and relax at all actually :D
You are going to be part of the family, small community. You are going to be uncle and aunt! No, you dont babysit 24/7, but they will talk with you, play, run, jump, sing and disturb you all the time ;)

NO SMOKING ON OUR LAND!!!! HOUSE AND GARDEN! Really! This is one of basic rules!


Did you read until here? It means you are really interested about our place. When you send us message, please answer these questions:
1. How many bathrooms we have in the house?
2. Why do you choose us?
3. What kind of help/work do you enjoy or brings you happiness?
The house is 100m far from bus stop, buses take you to/from:
- USTI NAD ORLICI, where is TRAIN to/from Prague and everywhere in Czech.
- LITOMYSL, where is UNESCO heritage castle, beautiful square with many cosy caffes and shops.

ORLICKE mountains are around 30km far to north, with highest peaks around 1000meters. In mountains you can find even more quiet places than our garden, beautiful views and cheaper hotels and services than in the highest Czech mountain Krkonose (Giant mountains). It is easy to get here by buses and spend nice weekend. In winter there are many ski slopes and snb parks.

Czech has GREAT buses and trains public transport network. Trains take you to every town and buses to every village!

Czechs speak English in Prague, Czech lang everywhere else. If you come to train station and need to ask for help, use simple sentences and bodylanguage.
