  • Description


    Hi, my name is Ian. I am a global traveller for the past 20 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 alternative therapies & Yoga retreats , where we can practise a spiritual, holistic approach to life amongst the beauty of nature. Our dream is to be 85% self sustainable and reproducing our energy from solar by end of 2022.
    We also introduced permaculture design and we harvest most of the seasonal greens,healing herbs and cooking herbs.

    The ideas are neverending we look forward to build a 4.5m tipi and green house and wood yoga platform by end 2022.

    We are also interested to collaborate with volunteers this year 2022 on a long period stay,Interesting project coming up from January onwards ...... we are interested in volunteers with experience in web developing and branding,Yoga or pilates teachers, artist, woodworkers,herbs knowledge and alternative medicine experience, homeopathy.

    When this project 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 and want to come and immerse themselves in nature connect with one self and feel the nature in full blossom,experience abundance of outdoor and extreme sports at your fingertips. Come and join with a positive vibe !

I love to cook as well, so sharing cooking recipes is also another fun thing to do in down time.The River and lake are close by so swimming is a beautiful things to do here in summer. Trekking opportunity as lots of mountains around and mountaineering and ice climbing in winter times. Hope that this year we will have some nice ice climbing 😂

    Special Meditation spots by the river in walking distance.

  • Help


    I'm looking for volunteers 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 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.
