  • Description


    Situated in the heart of the soca valley set within the Julian Alps. World-class location for hiking, paragliding, kayaking, fishing and all out door sports. Our complex has 2 houses: the main house was built in 1921 and the old house dates from the 18th century. The soca river is at the bottom of the road and the mountains are right behind the house -- you can just walk straight out of the house and be in the wilderness.
    The town of Tolmin is a stone's throw away, on a bike or on foot. The town of Bovec and Kobarid is also not far away and well connected with public transport. There are many lovely waterfalls and mountain walks and mountain lodges in the area. Tolmin gorges which is beautiful natural site, if you plan to visit, google Soca valley and see for yourself how stunning it is.. 😀

    I am Scottish so english we talk.
    There is loads to do here for all kinds of people, for those who like to build up some muscles and also those who’d like to flaunt their creative skills. I have travelled the world as a creative maker and designer-artist, but now I've found my place and I want to meet like-minded people to share this lovely home and this land scape.
    In my career l have worked on art projects, restoring houses , furniture, building boats and restoring classic cars. I am trained as a master furniture maker in wood. But also trained in glass, metal and ceramics. Being talented in many materials and with the artistic training I have a great eye for creativity and want to make a very one off space… So I have a really good cross section of skills which I hope I can pass on.
    I would like to plant a fruit orchard, make compost and get the vegetable garden ready.I will landscape the garden and make a crazy golf course that doubles as a driveway and build an outdoor oven.
    Soca means, (emerald green)
    Would be great to meet an architect and landscape gardener.
    Editing and shooting videos as I go, so these skills will come in handy. If you want to make videos please make sure you bring all the gear you need and can edit them.. And have a professional standard and you really really know how to capture things and edit..

    I planned to introduce meditation every morning (the medition hasn't happened hard anuff getting people up at 730am
    Yoga if a yoga teacher comes as a workaway this would be something we could do in the afternoons down by the river or at a water fall.

    I have a number of paragliding pilots friends coming to to stay with me.They can offer, advice, and ground handling tips, that is the way to start to learn to fly. Then you should do a professional based course, as you need the proper training so you are safe to fly and under instruction.

    I plan to make this place truly sustainable and self-sufficient, and therefore aim for most efficiency in managing and using energy, water and resources. Permaculture principles in the garden. Create a more consciousness and healthier life together, sustainability, recycling, art, music, forest healing, yoga, meditation, help the local community.

    P.S. If you didn’t know already, several parts of the movie Chronicles of Narnia was filmed here in Soca valley :D

    Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to talking with you! I would love to meet like-minded people from around the world and have them feel at home in this humble abode of mine in the Julian Alps.

    Take care and talk soon

    “Do I need to be super(woman to help here?”
    Kind of yes. The property is on a small slope and the work currently requires people who are physically fit and able-bodied at this time. Last year we was lucky rain never really happened and when it did it was short so we chilled.

    In the old house there is two cave rooms off the garage they are very cool in the summer heat. this will be the guys area.. The biggest room in the house i plan to put single beds in for the female's. And one small room for couples visiting..
    .. But the rooms will be nice but basic..

    The house has 4 bedrooms and the 18th centruy house has one large room for yoga or medition, 3 toilets..
    Depending on how many people are staying and what sex they are I will try sort out friend together, but cannot say everyone will get there own room so you may have to have share. Off course I have always keeper couples together.

    situated in an amazing spot.
    Just walk from the house to the forest or mountains, soca river is 200 meters away. Jump on a bike and have a cycle I have 6 bikes for you to use.
    Normally a volunteer in the group has a car so everyone all jumps in the car and head off to a waterfall or a walk in the afternoon. But if you just fancy hanging out on the terrace in a hammock your welcome or join in on yoga or mediation or start an art project Or do gardening or plan what we can do next.🤣🤣
    I am looking forward to creating an artist design community and space to create art and design. I look forward to having you it's my pleasure you have decided to give me you time and energy ..

    You just need to Google soca valley my house is right beside the river.
    And right beside the paragliding landing field. So with a wing and harness you can start to learn ground handling. One day do a course and you will be one step ahead. Behind the house straight away you can walk up a mountain. And sometimes I walk up there and take off. Really nice walks straight from the house the land scape is stunning that's why I'm there.
    Waterfalls close by. Mountain lodge 6 hours walk away.stunning sun rise views.. krn mountain is behind my house and is a 6 hrs walk. Not to be mist when visiting Slovenia...
