  • Description


    I'm a British woman just finishing renovating an old farm, surrounded by natural beauty, peace and quiet and starry nights, in the Triglav National Park in Slovenia. The area is popular with hikers, and tourists visiting the stunning lakes of Bled and Bohinj which are each just 25, and 20 mins drive away.

    You'll experience living simply and slowly, in nature, semi off grid, getting eggs from my chickens, and vegetables from my garden; not a city way of life.! You will learn to work with stone and stone plastering. I'm a native English speaker so I'm happy to help anyone with practising their English

    The lower stonework on the barn needs plastering and re-pointing this year. I did three walls of the house already and I'm not a plasterer and it looks fine! So its easy to learn. The finished look is rough and natural (hence why I could achieve it!). It's fairly strenuous work and will make your arm and back ache! There are lots of other small things to do as a break from that!. There is wood I need cleared of the top of the barn and piled up. I also want to extend the chicken enclosure and that needs me and one other person. And if you can use an electric chainsaw (which I have), or a normal saw ...I use a normal saw, there's small trees to be cut down cut up for firewood. Its too much for me to do on my own!

    You can hike in any direction and its gorgeous! But I imagine you'd like to spend most of your time enjoying the lakes. I have a SUPs you can borrow (which takes two people!) And I have a car you can borrow although it would be best if you had your own car then you'd be more free. Public transport to my village from the valley is only a few times a day. Proper shops are 15 minutes away. The lake is 20 minutes away.

    The internet connection is slow. Fine for working. Not great for streaming movies in HD!
