    Description

    Andrej, Larisa and Minoush (dog) are waiting for nice people to help them with all kinds of works.
    We recently moved out of the town in the hilly area close to Soča valley. We live in 200 years old house and have approximately 1.5ha of land that we want to put it, eventually, to some use. Also are planning a renovation of the house in 2019 and start a calm life away from traffic and crowds. Person that respects nature and qualities that everyday life in non-poluted environment offers will find here opened doors.
    We are open minded couple that likes to work, meet people and of course eat good food along with a glass of local wine:) Both of us were traveling individualy and together and we believe that we all can always learn from eachother. We take that good people always find a way to meet as an universal rule:)
    Our dog Minoush (half Border Collie, half Samoyed) is a happy dog that will never turn back an offer for a walk.

    Accommodation

    We have one bedroom (double bed) for guests that you can use, three couches:), a place for couple tents, depends what you want...if it happens that we are just renovating bedrooms when you are here we will anyway all have to improvise a bit:) in any case will let you know what the situation is before you come.
    We will share bathroom, toilet and kitchen...well ..all the house...we plan to make it comfortable for more people but for now we try to make it out with what we have.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will have a lot of oportunities to enjoy life in nature..including mountaineering, trekking, swimming in realy clear rivers and have a lots of fun in the area...you can do kayaking or rafting, then parashooting and paragliding. In the summer you can choose within several music festivals that happen just half an hour from our place. you can just walk in the forest or do joga behind the house or anywhere it fits the most. if you go to the valley (15min by car) you can jump on a train and visit Bled lake (1hour), Bohinj lake (45min)...yes this are quite turisty destinations...but if you want there is a lot to see even closer...acctually there are so many nice places to visit I cannot count.
    the easiest would be if you have your own transport, if not I am glad to take you to the first bus or train station or the best place to hitch hike if you want. Have to put it out that place here around is absolutely safe for anyone. Most of people know english and they will be happy to help you in any case.
