  • Descrição


    Hi, we're Emma and Ben and we've been running activity holidays, nature and yoga retreats from our small renovated farmhouse at Lake Skadar National Park since 2011. We take our small groups of guests hiking, kayaking and to enjoy the fantastic local wine and gastronomy during the season (April to October each year), while out of the season, we always have land and property maintenance to do and often some sort of building project - last winter we built a kayak storage shed and a Mediterranean courtyard!

    In or out of season, you will find yourself based in a stunning location for any nature lover, bang in the middle of a huge national park, with plenty of free time to get out and explore. Out of season, you will get to live at our guesthouse Villa. During the season, your lodgings will be a private wooden eco-cabin on the Villa estate, surrounded by nature, fruit trees and the occasional wild tortoise. You will also be able to share outdoor spaces with our guests, including the swimming pool and nature/yoga deck.

    We're based in walking distance of Virpazar, a pretty little village by Lake Skadar, and have three young kids.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You will be based in an extremely beautiful, rural area of Montenegro - Lake Skadar National Park - where you will be able to learn about and enjoy the incredible nature on our doorstep, as well as (during the season) learn to be a hiking and kayaking guide. And of course, we'll take you to some of the best secret beauty spots in our area. As little English is spoken here, except at our place (we're British!), you'll also get the chance to meet locals and learn a bit of the local language - Serbian/Montenegrin.

    We're looking for an outdoorsy, nature-loving couple from September, who can come help us run our activity holidays and guest accommodation. For the right people (you need to be as happy cleaning a guest bedroom as you are chatting with guests and staying in an eco-cabin!), this is an amazing opportunity which will need your commitment to stay at least a month.

    The role is chiefly to be our main house and groundskeepers, with support from us when needed (eg. on guest changeover days). Daily tasks involve getting up early (7am starts) to water the plants, feed and cuddle our 11 chickens, maintain the swimming pool (which involves using it too!), sweep, clean and tidy outside and communal areas like the yoga deck and guest kitchen/living room. Twice a week, there's a deep clean to do of the villa. In addition, we'll often need one of you to help run our tours, so you'll get to come along as a second driver and go kayaking and hiking too to some amazing places, most of them hidden well away from the standard touristy places. There will also be some gardening to do (strimming, pruning and maintaining our veggie garden), guest bedrooms to prepare, bicycle maintenance and, occasionally, babysitting (you also need to be family-friendly!).

    We provide a living allowance of €75 per couple per week, as well as use of a car when available, bikes and a kayak. We require both of you to have a decent level of physical fitness, fluent English and a full and clean driving licence. Experience of kayaking, hiking & property maintenance is desirable, as is a love of nature and the outdoors (insect and snake phobes, this is not the place for you!).

    When it comes to hours, we ask our volunteers to be flexible. Some days are longer than 5 hours, because you'll be out on tour with our guests or helping with the once-a-week changeover day. Other days will be shorter. It averages out to 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week and with a whole National Park to explore on your free days as well as the stunning Adriatic coast just a half hour away.

We provide internet access via a mobile modem, a 4x4 you can use when it's available, as well access to mountain bikes and a kayak.
