  • Description


    Hi, my name is Ian. I am a global traveller for the past 13 years. Finally I've decide to settle and start a new project in the most beautiful part northwest of Slovenia, Soča river is a few minutes away. I have a house in a small village surrounded by the amazing nature.

    I have a long term goal for this house. In the future I would like to set this place up as a creative guesthouse, where people from all creative backgrounds can come and share knowledge and skills. A collaborative project with a Yoga and Art studio, where we can practise a spiritual, holistic approach to life amongst the beauty of nature. A completely self sustainable space.

    When this is completed, workshops will be available for guests to enjoy as well as the local community. My village is a small community of private house owners who are very much involved in sustainable living, growing organic fruits and vegetables and working the land with pride and love.

    This is a perfect opportunity for someone who loves the outdoors to come and immerse themselves in nature, with an abundance of outdoor and extreme sports at your fingertips. Come and join!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    An exchange of knowledge. I studied Permaculture, Art, Hatha Yoga, Chakra Yoga and Chanting techniques. I love to cook as well, so sharing cooking recipes is also another fun thing to do in down time.

  • Help


    I'm looking for a volunteer to come and help me with my garden and general maintenance in the house. The garden isn't huge or small but is in need of some tender loving care, i'm unable to manage everything alone so some assistance (preferably with gardening experience) is key. I have a small vegetable patch which will need some attention, fruit trees and two small lawn areas that have been taken over by weeds. I'm working on a larger project on the first floor of the house, so I'm looking for someone to take care of the food shopping (on occasion), cooking and cleaning as well. Looking for individuals that are self motivated willing to exchange experience and fun to work with. I would very much appreciate help over the coming months. Please describe yourselves and what it is about nature you love.
