    Please always clean bathroom/kitchen/your room after using it, so everybody can have a fresh and clean place. Important: When taking a shower please take a short shower and dont let the water run, if you dont use it at the moment.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We respect water and the nature. Thats why we take short showers, which are also not possible every day and use water only when needed. Please close the tap/pipe/shower when not needed. So we all have enough water also to drink, to water plants, for cooking, for animals ... please respect water and nature.

    The adriatic coast is about 30 km from here, so in your free time you can drive to the beach, if you are here by car. otherwise it is a bit difficult, as the next busstop is 3km away and the busses are not running all day long.
