    Description

    I have a rustic off-grid hut in the hills overlooking Sarajevo. I left my job almost 15 years ago and came here, built a small hut and never left. So I've been living here and running an informal restaurant with basic accommodation ever since. I live alone but many friends come round and visitors always come and go so it gets quite lively sometimes, especially when the weather is good. There are many hiking trails around and the famous Skakavac waterfall and weekend getaway is only 4 km away, etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The hut is known as one of Sarajevo's best kept (public) secrets and draws a very interesting and varied mix of people, so you will have many opportunities to meet the regulars, farmers, ambassadors, hikers, bikers, award-winning directors, families, wandering musicians, mushroom pickers... The atmosphere is totally casual and very friendly so everybody talks to everybody else and you get to really know people. You are welcome to take part in everything that goes on and feel right at home.

    Help

    There are simple jobs that need doing on a regular basis (chop/stack wood, clean, wash dishes, tend the fire, etc.) but this does not mean hard work, more like help out where you can. And there are many potential improvements in and around the hut, so everyone is welcome to contribute what they can and know how to do.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    There are three sleeping rooms with 2 to 8 beds and you will be staying in one of them, whichever one you like and is available.
    Workawayers will eat with me, so that's three meals a day and there's always food in the kitchen.
    There's limited water supply and basic solar power.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Downtown Sarajevo is only 7km away. People come and go all the time so you can catch a ride to&from town, and there's usually quite a lot going on at the hut anyway
