Cserkut is one of the jewels of Baranya County. The quiet little "mountain village" is situated 5 km away from the city limits of Pecs, on the western side of the Mecsek Mountains, at the foothills of Jakab-hegy. Visitors can come across a tidy, flowery, charming village and several red sandstone farm houses preserving their original states. The village is the perfect setting for both a quiet, calm, peaceful, active rest, unwinding and re-energizing.

The BioBia Barn Hostel is situated in this wonderful natural setting. Beautifully renovated barn, shed and large yard are located at the edge of the village near the riverside. The yard is full of flowering plants. For modern people there are many novelties hidden in the yard, one can come across many plants, of which we probably do not even know that they were eaten by our ancestors, have been used for various medicinal purposes, or for baking and cooking. Guests visiting here may experience the balance and harmony that is possible between man and nature.

The Bio Bia Barn Hostel is a charming and private accommodation for students and groups of friends, as well as for families. The simply furnished, wood-paneled attic room can accommodate 15 people at the same time comfortably on both mattress and on beds. The ground floor has two large rooms, suitable for holding large events.

Organic production takes place at the reception, of which visitors may take part, try local products, taste the unique, long forgotten flavors. Guests may cook and bake in an oven or over an open fire. Upon request, the host shall ensure that food is served for the guests.

Visitors may take part in weed dinners, eco-canteens, playhouses, camps, and many other special programs. The ever-popular "edible flower" salads, are the main ingredients of weed dinners and ornaments for special sandwiches.

The yard is hiding unique "organic" treasures too. Thanks to the host's imaginativeness and ingenuity a home-designed herbal dryer is installed, which suits specific, individual needs, while drying main ingredients of teas and decoctions. Children can play with natural puzzle, while they learn about the bones of different animal. The host diversity, human-oriented personality is proved by the fact that he thought about guests with limited mobility as well.

A specifically designed swing is situated in its yard for those who use a wheelchair.

Opposite the house there is the washing house, renovated by the community of the village. This collaboration proves the community spirit and the cohesion in the village.

Fishing lovers do not have to do without their favorite leisure activity while relaxing, as the village has a fishing pond.
