  • Description

    Description

    My mom, dad, my girlfriend and I live on a small farm on top of a hill in Slovenian Carinthia in the mountain range of Pohorje. Dad and mom are retired and we both work. We always have lots of work to do and we could use help. We have a small field of potato, a big garden and a greenhouse where we grow lots of vegetables. We also have an apartment that we rent out. The house itself is an old farm house around 200 years old. It is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the town. There are tons of hiking and biking options around, you can borrow kayaks from me and go paddlig on the rivers and I am also a sports fan. You would be staying with us in the old house in a big room and you would have the access to the kitchen, bathroom etc. There is always lots of wood chopping, work in the garden, building and shoveling to do. We also have some cats, chickens, dogs and goats around that would love your attention.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You would be staying at our house with everything you need, we would share the upstairs kitchen when all of us are home. The house is pretty big so there is a lot of space. I think you would prefer staying outside in the nature anyway during the day, it's really nice here.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is a few kilometers from the nearest town so you would need a car to get to the shops or so. If you are fit, you can also use a bike.
