We are a retired couple but love to travel and see new places as well. The house, grounds and our animals Coco, Sky and Topaz and our newest addition Jasper are very important to us. We would want individuals or a couple that are committed to them, but also enjoy country life. This area of northern Croatia is stunning with many vineyards and easy access to Hungary, Austria, Italy and Slovenia.
Our house is situated on about an acre with lovely fruit and nut trees, plantings and flowers. This is a new house for us so assistance would also be needed with gardening and home maintenance.
Help in the house
Croatia is a wonderful country. The area in which we live is vibrant with culture and historical significance. There is plenty to do, places to go and much to assimilate. Once we have agreed and committed we will do all we can to ensure you have a wonderful and enriching experience.
We have two super friendly, well socialised dogs, and a cat named Topaz who thinks he is a dog and rescue called Jasper who is the real baby of the family. The four of them get a lot of TLC. They are very special to us and we would want committed, pet friendly people. Coco is a Dobermann that we have had from the age of 4 weeks, her mother could not care for her. Needless to say she is spoiled but in a good way. Sky, is a Springer Spaniel/labrador cross, We adopted him at the age of 9 months.
The grounds need constant maintenance and there are always projects in the house. We would need help in and around the house too depending on the season, we have about 10 apple trees of different varieties, fig, pear and peach and chestnut and walnut trees too. If we do go away it will not be for long periods, perhaps 10 days at most. Again this can be discussed and agreed. We prefer to get to know our workaways with a series of SKYPE calls.
You will have your own room and access to the rest of the house for relaxation, washing facilities etc. Breakfast items will always be available, lunch and dinner can be on your own, if we are away or with us. We will discuss your expectations and dietary requirements. We usually take our workaways shopping with us and certainly if we are going to be away will ensure you have an adequate supply of food.
We do not supply alcoholic beverages. Smoking is only permitted outside.
There is good bus service from Zagreb to Varazdin or Cakovec the two largest cities north east of Zagreb. Zagreb airport is the closest. There is also a train to the area.
