  • Description


    Hi, I am Neža. Living in a place by the forest in a small community of three. We live a simple life and try to bring an old farmhouse back to life. We like delicious homecooked meals with the vegetable from our garden, walks in the nature and just being in the moment.

    The house is in a village close to town of Celje. 8 minutes cardrive to highway and well connected with Ljubljana.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are easy-going people and would love someone with good energy that is highly motivated to help us. It is also important that the person is able to organize his free time and spend it on his own. We can offer some options (like cycling, walks in nature, bathing in a creek, doing stuff in the nature), but you would be left to spend some time on your own as well. We would appreciate a person who did similar work in the past. But what is even more important is that you have the will to work and learn something new.
