  • Description


    My grandaughter Clara and I (Valeria) are living together in the beautiful land in Istria close to Rovinj (6km) in a Natural Reserve Zone called Palu, very close to Cisterna sea. We are from Italy but decided to move to the beautiful Istria for good. We both are happy to welcome happy volunteers who wish to help us and enjoy the beautiful nature of Istria.

    We can welcome individuals or families with kids. The most important thing is that you have a good heart to give and receive. It´s impportant that you speak some italian, spanish or portuguese and english. Please if possible, write me in Italian.
