  • Description

    Description

    Nature lovers and climbing enthusiast will fall in love by each sense with seaside base present in the Adriatic lagoon hidden on the coast of island Hvar, right under a reddish cliffs steeply dropping into the sea. A popular climbing destination for over two decades. Island Hvar is home to Mediterranean wildlife as in the sea so on the land. The woods are mixed with ancient Greek terraced vineyards and olive groves. Summer is the main touristic season, while the autumn months September/October are for harvest and for production of red wine and vergine olive oil.

    Something about me, I am a Slovak climber who has found a second home, and since 18 years lives in Croatia. I have created this spot based on the cliff for other climbing enthusiasts and while living here I got into production of olive oil and wine making. My farm with olive groves and vineyards is nearby village Sv. Nedelja, bellow the highest point of the island, Mount Sv. Nicola. The property is on terraced slopes with dry stone rock walls facing the Adriatic Sea.
    I am looking for Workawayers age 18-40 who would like to join me for more than two weeks and help. I can accept more people but usually I need 1-2 who can assist me with the base maintenance. Apart from help with running the base I’m looking for people who are physically strong and who are not afraid of working hard and can really help during the harvest months (end September,October and November) in the yards and with rock constructions, eventually skilled enough to help me build new parts of via ferrata system above the village.

  • Help

    Help

    Workawayers can assist with the maintenance in the base which include the basics, such as making beds, cleaning, cooking. They can also assist with wine tasting, hiking with guests around. There is a wine and olive harvesting in autumn, vineyard and olive orchard work in winter. The building of the rock terraces, walls, steps at the base or around is winter job as well. The huge challenge is still to maintenance and make new rock trails and parts of ferrata system above the village.
