    Hello! My name is Neri and I have been traveling a lot in the past years and I have taken some ideas from other friends and put them together in this project. My wish is that you can come and discover the beautiful Shebenik National Park, and take part in my new project. We are a very welcoming family. My grandpa and grandma are very lovely and they like new people around. We want to renovate the old villa, but we want to do it easy and carefully so that we don't change the integrity of its style, unlike some of these homes built with two chimneys :)

    We have live animals (cows, mules, goats, chickens, and a dog) and crops on our farm. We also have our own small bar for relaxing after working, and a lake for swimming in early summer.

    All that we ask with volunteers is that they come with inspiration, enthusiasm, and motivation to better themselves. Experience is helpful, but not necessary. We enjoy teaching on all levels and welcome all!

    I want to renovate an old house at the foot of the mountain...My grandpa and I have an old villa and we want to turn it into a guest house... I'm a 28 year old guy and I live with my grand parents. I always have been looking to make a nice and cheap place for people who like nature and animals, hiking, eco-friendly nature, backpacking, camping, lakes, rivers, landscapes, wildlife, etc.. And all of this in just one place how amazing is that!? My idea is to make people around the world visit this wonderful place, but to do this I need you people to help me with some ideas and skills :) ....My grandpa has started to make a new house for himself next to the old villa that we want to renovate. We want to have some experiences with new people, getting advice from you. I like simple people like me to help to design the interior because it has been a long time since people have been living there... before you come I can talk to you about my place. I'm the kind of guy who likes to make new friends...Everywere I have been in the last years, I have made friends and have talked to them about my ideas. I'm open-minded...I like to share my food with people, so don't worry, you eat what I eat :) ....I'm not so good at explaning my self but I'm sure you will be back at my place again after first time. The hour doesn't matter! Just come and enjoy yourself and have a nice vacation :) .....Many Regards!

    the old villa has 6 rooms. Two rooms are already done and other 4 need a little repair. You can choose to stay alone in the room or share it with somebody else. There is one bathroom, but since you come to the house you will have acces to everything :) ..... My home is your home :)

    What else ...

    Ohh! There is a lot to do. You can go hiking up the mountain towards Qarrishtes which is in Shebenik National Forest and has many peaks over 2,000 m (6,562 ft)....or take a bath in the lake which is 10m away from our house :). If you are active, we would be happy to take you biking/running/hiking/skiing with us and we have extensive knowledge of the local mountains if you want to venture out on your own :).
