    HELLO Everybody from Pierin and Domenico !!!!!

    We are lovers of nature and music, we like to live peacefully, respecting the customs and traditions of the magnificent place in which we live. Pierin was born here, in Rrjolle, 43 years ago, and he still remembers well the ancient and difficult living conditions of Albania at that time, and how many sacrifices had to be made in order to build a peaceful future. After having lived for many years in Italy, he has returned to his roots and now lives peacefully with his family, dedicating himself to fishing and gardening, wishing to help his hard-working parents to live an even more dignified life. Domenico is a 42 years old italian boy who has wandered a lot in his life, passionate about mathematics, music and radio production. He has been a mathematics teacher for many years as well as having founded and managed an independent international non-profit radio to promote and host live music and emerging bands.nHe immediately fell in love with Albania, and above all, with the simple and natural lifestyle here in Rrjolle.
    Together we had the idea of joining our strengths, passions and skills....
    About our project: Starting from the roots to grow like trees.

    The seed of our project has been planted in the soil where Pierin was born and grew, 50 meters to the sea, and it is being realized in 2 complementary parts.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    First, the camp zone:

    It is going to be a very comfortable, eco-friendly spacious place for people to come, hang out, and get back to nature and the wonderful beaches that Albania has to offer. The campsite will be equipped with a caravan site, tend and yurt; each one with electricity connections and shared wifi. We will create a covered communal space with the possibility of for children to play, as well as shower and toilet facilities. It will all be built by us with the help of a few kind friends using reclaimed and recycled materials. We want to use solar energy as much as possible. There is a grass lown and a section dedicated to creative and sustainable gardening. We are lovers of Biodiversity.

    We intend to run small activities for all ages to encourage people to discover new things, and we also want to organize moments of leisure together as well as delicious barbecues with freshly caught fish, organic vegetables and local meat. We are hoping to make it wheelchair accesible so it can be enjoyed by all and so we have the potential to be able to offer respite holidays.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Second, the radio live music zone :

    In the opposite corner an area will be used to install our web radio and a scenario for live music. It will be built using and adapting old scrap buses in a creative and original way. We want to invite musicians, djs, performers from all over the world to let them play. Each concert will be recorded and broadcasted online on our web radio. Campers will be able to play their favorite music on the radio and interact with the shows. At the end of the season we can promote and share parts of the live performance on our podcast platform and broadcast it as well.

    We are music lovers !!!!!

    For the time being we run the project with the help of various local people, most of them volunteers. When the site opens, we will hire local workers for the bar and camping area.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    About Rrjolle and the corresponding Skhoder area :

    Rrjolle (Velipojë) is situated on the estuary of the Buna river (the only navigable river of Albania), where it flows into the Adriatic Sea while constituting the natural border with Montenegro. Since 2005, Rrjolle (Velipoje) lies within the boundaries of Buna River-Velipoja Protected Landscape.
    You will find beautiful unspoiled beaches and incredible landscapes to enjoy and photograph.
    You can enjoy visiting Shkoder, just 30km far away.
    Shkoder is the point of entry for the sublime natural landscapes in almost every direction from the city. East is Drin River that flows through canyons, right to the west is the Adriatic Sea and its sandy beaches, and northeast are the Albanian Alps where the country’s tallest peaks can be conquered. For history buffs there’s plenty to see, as Shkoder has been on a key trading post for millennia, and both the Ancient Greeks and Romans settled here. Inside Shkoder you can acquaint yourself with Albanian history and culture, visiting mosques, cathedrals, workshops and photographic archives.

    ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!!

    ACCOMMODATION

    We can offer shared accommodation in a small 3 or 4 people apartment with bunk beds and double beds for couples, which are 50 meters from the sea (we have 7 available ); as well as the possibility, for those who prefer it, to stay in the camping area with their own caravan or tent.

    Since this is a quite dry area during summer, there might be some electrical problems. Long power outages are not common at all, but 30 minute power outages might occur once in a while (maybe once every 2 weeks).

    FOOD

    We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. Freshly caught fish ( we are a group of fishermen ), local meat and vegetables.
    We provide basic supplies sourced from the local area as and when they are available.
    Oats, basic cereal, bread, seasonal vegetables, seasonal fruits, eggs, vegetable oil, butter, flour, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, sugar, locally caught fish and local meat when it is available.
    There is a supermarket close by where you can get fresh bread and other items as you please.

    Vegetables are provided from the garden or purchased from nearby supermarkets in Shkoder. ONLY seasonal fruits and vegetables will be provided - NO AVOCADO, TROPICAL FRUITS, ASIAN FRUITS OR VEGETABLES, NUTS or anything out of season.

    Part of the work includes cooking lunch and dinner for everyone. We try to be as inclusive as the variety limitation allow us to be. Since gluten free products, and many of the vegan basic needs such as quinoa, different kind of flours and other supplements are quite expensive here, sadly, we can not provide them and you will have to take care of such needs yourself.

    When the bar opens (May 2022) volunteers will have discount on bar prices.

    We can provide a stable internet connection. When the weather is nice (which should not be a problem from spring onwards), internet in the rooms works quite well. We can not ensure a 24/7, 100% connectivity issues free internet, but we think that what we provide will suffice. Digital nomads are very welcome (Domenico is one himself).

    Pets are generally more than welcome. Every animal that gets along with chickens, pigs and other animals roaming outside the camp can be hosted without problem. Since we need to organize sleeping spaces, please let us know in advance if you are coming with a pet. If you have a pet that for different reasons is not comfortable with other people or animals, we should speak in advance about how to organize ourselves so nor us or the pet gets stressed by the communal living situation.
