    Beschreibung

    Hi, we are Scotty and Alex, respectively Australian and French, and after having worked and lived on almost every continent we decided to settle in Montenegro a few years ago.

    We purchased a beautiful land of 4 hectares with a vineyard, 2 small forests, multiple terraces and 2 stone houses that we have been renovating as authentically as possible. We learn everyday from living on the land and aim at living more and more of the land as well. We love to share our simple and active lifestyle with visitors from all over the world, play music, cook on the fire or enjoy the peaceful surrounding nature together.

    We live in one large stone house and welcome in the renovated stone barn friends, family and Workaway's, and also rent it our to guests looking for a perfect nature experience in the late spring and summer months. We have 4 pet chicken roaming freely on the land, 2 pet rabbits adventuring in the garden every morning and a pretty chill cat.

    We produce our own organic wine and gin and all meals are made from scratch with organic local produce. We also have local organic beer on tap for the hard working people :-)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Our property is located in a hamlet on the North-West side of Skadar Lake, 15 minutes walk from the lake, where life has not changed in generations (our neighbours families have been on this land since the 17th century) providing a very special cultural experience. The property has 200 degrees view on the mountains range of the National Park of the Skadar Lake, and the surrounding area is very picturesque with fresh water springs, rivers, lots of beautiful rocks and wild herbs, as well as 280 species of birds known to be present on the lake. We are also only 25 min drive from the capital Podgorica and 30 minutes from the airport, providing easy access to all services.

    We are looking for help with horticulture/permaculture (vineyard, fruit trees and vegetable garden) with view to becoming self sufficient in organic produce. Experience with animals would also be good but not essential. Some parts of the property have been let go so we will also need to look at doing some clearing of weeds and non native bushes.

    Depending on the Workaway skills and preferences, we can also work together on some specific construction projects such as building an A-cabin, fixing the old well, fixing old 'dry' stone walls on the terraces, landscaping, painting, renovating, cleaning, etc

    We are also usually looking for house sitters for the winter months.

    * PLEASE DO NOT COME WITHOUT PRIOR APPOINTMENT *

    We can accommodate 1 to 4 persons in the ecological tiny house (renovated stone barn) - if not rented as paid eco-accommodation. It is very cosy and authentic space with great comfort and a fireplace for the winter. We also have good experience with workaway's coming with their own campervan as there is plently of space on our land.
    The tiny house runs entirely on solar energy, water comes from our rain water well or from the village source, and we have wifi available as well. The toilet is located right next to the tiny house, and is a dry/compost toilet.

    As we used to run a local eco-tourism business in Montenegro, we can advise you of the best spots to visit and help you get there. We usually pick up volunteers in the capital or the airport.
    There are countless gorgeous locations within a short walk/drive from the property. We sometimes go explore new areas together by foot/car with volunteers over the weekend. The bus stop to the coast and to town is 10 minutes by car from our place. Hitch-hiking is very common and very safe in Montenegro. We are an easy going couple who love hosting guests of different nationalities. We very often cook in the evenings on the open fire (weather permitting), play guitar, star gaze and just soak up the outdoor atmosphere.

    We have a parking space for campervan (regular size) located under trees canopies which keeps it cooler in the summer. We have hot outdoor shower and compost toilet. No direct electricity connection to the parking space.
