    Description

    My partner and I were teachers in secondary international schools and have a house in Grče, Slovenia. We also have another property in Prekmurje Slovenia which we are trying to develop into an organic market garden and Lavender Farm. We are now retired from teaching and trying to develop these properties full time.

    Both properties need a lot of work as we bought them as phase 3 buildings, ie only a roof and walls If you are interested in helping us we would be most grateful.

    We also have 2 cats who from time to time need looking after when we have to travel back to the UK. The cats are very independent and just need regular food and water.

    In return you would get accommodation, in a cottage in a beautiful environment. Apart from looking after the cats and keeping the place tidy, the rest of the time would be your own, to explore the Slovenia.

    FINALLY

    If you apply to stay with us you are applying to stay in our home as our guests.
    We are not a business looking for workers we just want to share our time with like minded people who believe in what we are doing. Therefore, if we are merely accommodation on a list of possibles, please do not apply, as we don't have the time to waste.

    What else ...

    Slovenia is a beautiful country with many unspoilt areas and many tourist attractions. It is also very well located for visiting Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Italy.

    Grče feels like it is in a remote secluded area up a small mountain but is actually only 10 minutes from the motorway and railway and the same distance from Sempeter which is a small lively town.

    There is a cheap local bus service within a few minutes of the house and the Slovenia has a cheap rail service.
