    ** Coronavirus Update **
    * Help Needed in October 2020 *

    Hi, my name is Jeff and I am from London. Come and help me to renovate a traditional Istrian limestone house & barn and create a landscaped permaculture garden & construct a garage on land opposite. I will also be checking out local restaurants & tourist attractions as well as walking paths and out of the way beaches & villages. We are within walking distance of a beach bar and the sea. There is also the possibility of an additional project clearing and tidying up a winehouse & vineyard off-grid with lovely views of the valley from the upstairs terrace.

    I am keen to learn more about Croatia and the local area. My village has a bar/ restaurant and two supermarkets 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 if you could speak some German 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. There will be regular bonfires at appropriate times to dispose of the wood cleared & stacked from the previous spring. There is a partially collapsed brick & concrete shed which I would like to re-roof and turn into a garage for a small car I am going to purchase.
    There is work repairing & painting wooden shutters and staining the original beams that were exposed the previous summer. There is also work to be done on change-of-use converting a small barn to a habitable building and renovating the clay tiled roof.

    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 one of the bedrooms. There is a shower, washing machine and gas for cooking. There is no internet in the house (although a Roaming signal is always available) but there is free internet a short walk away at the Tourist Information Centre, also in most bars & restaurants in nearby towns & villages. We will 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. 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 2km walk down to the main resort of Rabac. Plomin is another picturesque hilltop village that is seeing a revival with artists & craftsmen taking up residence and changing the ambience of the place.
