    The house made of oak tree, surrounded by fields, forests and animals.
    Our vision is to create a welcoming place open to all nature lovers.
    It is a rural part of Croatia, undiscovered and wild, beautiful nature and people. We are planning to open a rural camping ground, in touch with nature, offering activities such as biking, rafting, hiking...

    We need help with cleaning and maintenance around the house and constructing some basic infrastructure (fence, outdoor showers and toilets for campers), painting, cutting wood and similar.
    Hope to meet you.
    Mario & Marta.

    Croatia is known for it's beautiful coast (which you can visit, it is just 2 hours from our farm). But it's green interior still remains to be discovered. Our region is isolated and sometimes it feels like time travelling :). We are close to the frontier with Bosnia, so there is a lot of different traditions to discover.
    On the other hand, there are young and urban people in our neighborhood who decided to move to the country and live of the land and still have a good time.
