Before coming to Bolara 60, I had worked in kitchens, as a cleaner, and done some labouring, but never really enjoyed them. After my stay, I didn’t really want to go back to any of those jobs (I did though), because I knew they’d never be as fun as they were in Istria. Bolara doesn’t just offer work experience – I got insights into local cat drama, learned how to build a woodshed, maintained pomegranate trees, and helped the neighbours make wine. If you like learning things you wouldn’t elsewhere (like how to stop squirrels stealing your walnuts) and helping make delicious food in a beautiful house, then I can’t recommend working at Bolara 60 enough.
