  • Description


    I'm a British woman just finishing renovating an old farmhouse, surrounded by natural beauty, peace and quiet and starry nights, in the Triglav National Park in Slovenia. The area is popular with hikers, and tourists visiting the stunning lakes of Bled and Bohinj which are each just 25, and 20 mins drive away.

    You'll experience living simply and slowly, in nature, semi off grid, getting eggs from my chickens, a very not city way of life.! Fresh produce available from local farms. I'm a native English speaker so I'm happy to help anyone with practising their English

    The lower stonework on the barn needs plastering and pointing this year. I did three walls of the house already and I'm not a plasterer! The finished look is rough and natural (hence why I could achieve it!), using natural stone plaster. I can show anyone how to do it but a few hours of that a day is fairly strenuous help and will make your arms and back ache if you're not used to such work!. I have a makeshift greenhouse that needs to be mended. And a fence that needs to be built. And if you can use an electric chainsaw there's trees to to felled and cut for firewood. Its too much for me to do on my own!

    You can hike in any direction and its gorgeous! But I imagine you'd like to spend most of your time enjoying the lakes. I have two SUPs you can borrow! And I have a car you can borrow although it would be best if you had your own car then you'd be more free. Public transport to my village from the valley is only a few times a day. Proper shops are 15 minutes away. The lake is 20 minutes away.

    I have a dog who gets on with other dogs but not cats! If you bring dog it would need to get on with free range chickens
