    Hello, I'm having a sport activity facilities, which include a beach volley, inline hockey playground and a (closed) tennis cort, and a atrium bar, which would need constant gardening, small repairings, occasionaly painting and general maintainance. There is also quite a big grass field which would need to be cut etc.. The location of the place is close (7 km) to the famous city Bled, with its majestyc millenium castle, beautifull lake and an island with a church dating back to 12 A.D. It's lying underneath the Karawanke mountain chain which offer unbelievable beautifull sights and a very green and clean area. The exact location is the village Selo pri Žirovnici, close to lake Završnica (20 min walking distance) and 15 min to trainstation Žirovnica.

    I offer accomodation, daily meals, or the possibility to prepeare your own food (if you have the wish) as organizing picnics, even free transfers to locations and more, all after our agreement.

    We are also a family of 3 people, me my wife and my child, but there is no babysiting or taking care about children needed. We would like to get to know our guests/workaways and also spend some time together. (meals, picnics..)

    We also speak English, Slovene, German, Russian, Croatian.

    Please describe in your requests what are yopur interests, and what experiences you have, because we would like to choose the proper people for the work which would be needed at that time.
