    Hi, my name is Jeff and I am from London. Come and help me to renovate a traditional Istrian limestone house & barn and clear some land opposite. I will next be there in March or April 2024. I will be checking out local restaurants & tourist attractions as well as walking paths and out of the way beaches & villages. We are within a short distance of a beach bar and the sea.

    There is also the option of travelling to a vineyard & winehouse in the countryside outside Zagreb.

    I am keen to learn more about Croatia and the local area. My village has a bar/ restaurant and a supermarket and lies midway between Pula and Rijeka.

    Eventually I would like to offer my accommodation to tourists so I am keen to explore local facilities by car and on foot so I know what the area has to offer. The house is on the old coast road prominent in the village not isolated. There is a bus stop opposite where you can get buses to major towns or even hitch-hike (Croatians are very laid-back).

    It would help in this part of Croatia if you could speak some German or Italian but this is not essential as English is widely understood in most towns & tourist areas.

    I need help clearing the spare land of weeds & small shrubs. It would be particularly useful if someone could research how to repair dry-stone walls as there is one which surrounds the land which has partially collapsed in places over the years.

    There is work repairing & painting wooden shutters and original ceiling beams. There is also a project on change-of-use converting a small barn to a habitable building.

  • Alojamiento


    The house has two large upstairs bedrooms and another room used as a separate bedroom downstairs with comfortable beds & mattresses. You would be staying in an upstairs bedroom. There is a shower, washing machine and gas cylinder for cooking. There is no broadband in the house (although a Roaming signal is always available) but there is free internet in most bars & restaurants in nearby towns & villages.

    We usually share the shopping and preparation/ cooking of meals. I will provide one main meal per day but only require a maximum of 15 hours project work per week not necessarily spread evenly, although different arrangements could be adopted to suit your requirements. Quite informal.

    The nearest town is Labin about 9 km away where there are many shops and bars. Old Labin is an interesting medieval hilltop town with good views, restaurants in the main square and a picturesque 2.5km walk down to the main resort of Rabac where there is a marina and activities available such as scuba diving and boat rental.

    Plomin is another picturesque hilltop village (within walking distance) that is seeing a revival with artists & craftsmen taking up residence, renovating old stone buildings and changing the ambience of the place.

    I have hosted several IT workers who have lots of Roaming data from their companies as there is a good signal although I don't have a router & internet connection.
