    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In exchange for your efforts, you will get accommodation at the proximity of the fields, food, and good company. The property is situated in a small village Ljubanje, around 12km south from Uzice, the closest city. Even though it is not very far from the city, the village is still very authentic, since the area is not at all touristic. The public transportation is accessible from a bigger settlement Bela Zemlja, which is 4km away. The transport there (as well as further away) can be arranged on your free days, where you will have the possibility to discover the larger region, that has much to offer.

    The adventurous part, is that most of the family members living in the village only speak Serbian, with relatively limited knowledge of foreign languages. In spite of the language barrier, basic communication should not be a problem. However, someone speaking English will be available over phone and e-mail for the whole period of your stay in order to avoid potential misunderstandings.
