  • Description


    Hello everyone! I decided to roll up my sleeves and put little olive garden (1700m2) into shape. It's located on island Korcula, close to town Korcula, and it's an OFF THE GRID getaway surrounded with olives, pine trees and sounds of nature. Water for showering and cleaning dishes is rainwater from tanks, drinking water is from the store. Toilet is wherever you like in the woods :). There is no electricity, but cafe is 10 min by foot so it's possible to charge your phone there while drinking a cup of coffee. Market for food supply and bus stop are also at the same place as cafe (10 minute walk from olive garden).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Drystone wall building is very popular in Dalmatia for a long time and it's also on Unesco's cultural heritage list. I can show you around Korcula, recommend places to visit, tell you the history.

    You can explore Korcula, lovely beaches, old town, cuisine, tradition, we can go hiking. Also, other islands around Korcula are easy to go to and explore.

  • Help


    Tasks would consist of repairing drystone walls in the garden, because they have fallen down at some places, cutting branches, removing bushes, grass, etc.

  • Accommodation


    Tent with air mattress for two, pillows and blankets. It would have to be a couple or good friends, since you'll be sleeping in the same tent. You can bring your own tent, if you like.

    OFF THE GRID- rainwater for showering, toilet in the woods. No electricity or fridge.

    I'll provide lunch, but please be aware since there's no fridge, cuisine can't be 5 stars :) You'll have to take care of breakfast and dinner on your own. There is little gas stove for cooking in the wooden house in the garden.

    Location is isolated, there is only one house some 100m away, and village is 10min walk away.

    Dogs welcomed! If you're traveling with a dog, that's great and no problem. I can even take care of him if you want to spent your free time cycling etc.
