2020 LATE SUMMER - Due to the Covid virus, this volunteer season has been delayed. We hope to welcome helpers in October - November.
We need help in the yard with weeds and grass cutting! Full accommodation in the house and buy/make your own meals as you will be on your own. There is a taxi to/from Cetinje, but having your own car is best.
Help us bring back to life, an old stone village house in the wine country of Montenegro. We need help with the vineyard, fruit and nut trees, house maintenance, and projects.
It has been sitting empty and I wish to turn the wine cellars and land into a place where I can invite friends and family to immerse themselves in Montenegro culture. This property is in a small village just outside Cetinje, the old Royal Capital with a different culture in Itself with historical buildings and an old-world feel. The village itself has only 6 houses along the one street. One neighbor is a maker of Honey Wine. Another is a Herbalist who sells at the local farmers market, and others are working their land. They all are very welcoming and are happy to have foreigners discover their beautiful land.
Help in the house
