//Summer 2019 is all full now: we can only welcome you in May or after 20 September//

If the photos did the job (waking your interest, that is), you must be a nature-and-mountain-and-beautiful-scenery-lover, so a big part of who we are happy to live and work with for a while is already done. If you are not discouraged by mostly a lot of (could be) quite repetitive work, then you will not suffer either:)

So, to the work first: most of the time it will be something about herbs (Matej's passion) or berries (that one is mine). Matej is developing a job/business/vocation in the world of herbs and during late spring/summer/early autumn there is always some picking/weeding/drying/processing of wild/cultivated plants to do. The berries are mostly installed now and there will be regular tasks to do (weeding, cutting grass, picking, ...) During bad weather or in colder part of the year there are more domestic and indoor tasks to do: renovating the helpers room, cooking, packing teas etc.

Not scared off yet? Then to the day-to-day arrangement: we have a room for helpers with small kitchen facility and shared bathroom . As spring and summer are the busiest part of the year and we enjoy new culinary delights, the cooking will be shared task:) With small kids we are not a good dinner company, but lunch is usually shared experience. All in all you'll get the most out of your stay if you know to enjoy to explore on your own.

And the stunning place you will be living in? Jezersko is a superb alpine valley on 900 m with a lot of outdoor activities: mountaineering, climbing, via ferrata, walking, cycling, lying in the sun and doing nothing ... we would be happy to give you more info and rent you a bike, when the need arrives. As there are ca 30 hours of work and 168 hours in total (per week, that is) and we will make plans together in the way that all of us get the best out of it, I see no obstacles for you not to enjoy both your leisure and your work time.

One more thing: we have a dog. And yeah, the languages: we both do English and struggle with German, Matej understands Slavic languages, and I speak French when given enough time to remember how.
