    Check the Calendar before contacting us, please.

    We are young couple with no children living just outside Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. We have a house and a garden. The house is partly still under construction (so is the garden, too :-). I work mostly at home as film editor, and my girlfriend works in Zagreb as dance teacher. We like nature, sailing and laughing. When it comes to people, we really appreciate honest, cheerful and simple folk. We are vegetarians and non-smokers.

    Help

    During the warm season, some help in garden would be needed. The upper floor of the house is to be finished, as well as the area around the house. Volunteer work would therefore include some mason work, sanding, painting or any other work in finishing our living space. Experience in that kind of work is welcome, it is important that you don’t mind to get your hands dirty. We recommend you to have working cloths and shoes.
    We would ask for 3 working hour per day (morning hours) and we can offer a main meal (lunch) to you. So you should provide on your own breakfast and dinner.
    We are also very interested in learning German and would appreciate some language practice!
    We have a small sailing boat that requires some maintaining. If you take part in it, you will most probably be able to see some of Croatian coastline. Since this work takes place only in very short periods throughout the year, please feel free to verify if there is such possibility during your stay.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have small camper trailer with double bed and kitchenette in the yard (see photos). In the house we have one kitchen and one bathroom, and you can use them as you like.
    We are trying to keep energy use and waste production of our home
    under the European average. This means that we recycle most of our waste and use less water in bathroom and kitchen, especially hot water. So we would ask volunteers to try to do the same during the time you share with us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Since our house is only 25 kilometers away from the city center, you can visit Zagreb every day and explore it. The bus station is really close, some 100 meters away from our house, and it takes 35 minutes to get to Zagreb. You can also explore the surroundings of our village, which is very attractive for hiking or cycling. Our boat is currently in a small town on the Adriatic coast, which means that you will stay on the boat and be able to explore a part of Croatian coastline if you take part in the boat maintenance work.
