  • Description


    We live in Istria, the most beautiful part of Croatia. Our house is situated in a picturesque village 8 kilometers away from the city and a short 15 minute car ride to get to the sea.
    During the year, I live alone with my autistic 15 y.o. daughter and our five cats. My youngest daughter (13 y.o.) is joining us for the summer break (June/July/August) and Christmas and spring holidays. I offer you plenty of good times, swimming in the most beautiful beaches in Croatia, good vegetarian food, fresh air, connection with the nature and a lot of positive energy. Contact us, your help is always welcome.

    *Current projects - autumn: reorganisation of the property around the house, first phase preparations for building the natural house in the near future, renovations and reparations of different old goods...

    We need a little bit of help every day (5 hours). If you are an active person that's not afraid to sweat and get hands and feet dirty, this is the place for you. If you have some experience with autistic children, it would definitely be a plus. My daughter is very expressive, dynamic and intuitive. She communicates and plays through the energy, and loves the sound of instruments so playing instruments is very welcome here. If your idea of playing with children is with your cell phone in one hand, it would definitely be a minus.
    My youngest daughter is a very artistic soul and likes to draw portraits. If you love spending time with children and if you are an artistic person, know something about cooking and gardening - it could be a very interesting summer for you. In order for the children to become comfortable with you, I would suggest that you stay at least one month. Winters here are mild so you can enjoy the peace it brings, and the garden that is flourishing with greens.
    We have a really big garden full of vegetables and fruit trees and there's always something to do.
    Also, we want our house walls colorful and artistic, so you are very welcome to choose any empty wall to express yourself. Regarding further details, we can speak on Telegram, WhatsApp or Messenger.
    We're vegetarians (pescatarians), love peaceful, meditative and spiritual personalities.
    Religious fanatics and indoctrinated persons will not have a good communication with us, because our vibrations are totally different, except if your religion is LOVE.
    Independent, open - minded, flexible, creative, active, introverted, meditative, easy going and free thinking people are most welcome. Alcohol and drug addicts, city noise and party lovers... this is not a place for you.

    Thanks for reading :-)

    I wish you LOVE
