About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are art and nature loving owners of a spacious villa dating from 1913 situated in a green area near the sea in a touristic spot of southern Istria, Pula. The house has 350m2 living area and 1500m2 decorative garden. Our vision is to built up a seminar center for 6 to 10 persons, offering accomodation and seminars about human growth, psychology, sustainbility and other interesting themes as well as trips to natural parks and forests of Croatia. We want to preserve also the historic side of the property and the neighbourhood so we are in contact with Art Nouveau network and we wish to create nature friendly, personality friendly and art friendly environement for education and leisure.
The house is historic, big and wonderful which means we have to renovate it constantly with love and care. So we mostly need help in construction and renovating and luckily in woodwork restauration. The garden is alsospacious so gardening is most welcome too. As for help in the house and maintainance itis needed mostly from may to july and from mid september to november.

I can read and understand perfectly all of the above languages but I do not practice speaking Spanish so I have difficulty expressing myself and my Italian is not perfect but I can communicate well.

I am a therapist and yoga instructor, and a mother of two twin daughters living for past 10 years in Istria in our family home in Pula. I have lived in France, Greece and shortly in Spain and I speak or understand 7 languages (French, English, Italian, Spanish, Croatian, Greek and Slovenian). All my life I love being in contact with nature and I love simplicity but also sophistication. I have two dogs. I have studied art and educational sciences but in my daly life I am a shiatsu practitioner, yoga, meditation and healthy life coach leader for 20 years now. I run a small personal growth center here in Pula. So my interests are in art (literature, plastic arts, restoration) and consciousness exploring (mental health, consciousness expanding, human growth).
