A few words about the family: 
I have inherited this land and I have no idea what to do with it, one thing that I know is that I do not want to separate from it. The lands are mostly vineyards and fruit trees. This land was a part time for me. With great effort, I got up to date with the works. I do not live on the property, but I go daily after the work hours, 4-5 hours. Only the weekend I sit there.
Pets: 
Two dogs visiting the property: Lili German hunting dog from neighbors and Foxy a wandering dog but both very friendly.

We expect our guests to be sociable, open, hardworking, cheerful and loving. We do not tolerate violent people, racism, religious fanatics. There is no need for nonstop work; so you can "rest" in the meantime or read a book. You can also visit the surroundings, walks in the woods, nearby thermal water (18 km).
