  • Description

    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. We practice conscious way of being, so personal growth is a big topic for us.

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

    If you enjoy cooking and cutting vegetables, we would gladly accept ypur help with cooking.

    We are also in the process of establishing a simple webpage, so if anyone has any experiences in this area it's greatly recommended as well.

    There is a local village road near the house, so one can hear some noises of the cars around the house (just to let you know what to expect), but the meadow and forest are away from it so there one can experience 100% nature vibe.

  • 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, 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 and has some experiences with physical work. But what is even more important is that you have the will to work and learn something new.
