Region: North East BulgariaWe are Ian & Kate. We are English (early 60's going on 35!). We have wi-fi internet access. We have 2 dogs who win the hearts of everyone they meet! We now have 2 kittens, also very friendly. Kate practices Tai Chi Chaun and Qi Gong. We do not have TV. We love music and there is usually something playing. If you play an instrument and/or sing that would be great. We can accommodate vegetarians. Food is good, wholesome with multi-cultural roots. We offer flexible hours - agreed between ourselves: 25 hrs per week. We live in a small village with 2 shops/pubs. It is 4km from Dobrich, a town of 90,000 people; 30km from the sea, including either quiet beaches or lively resorts, - a bus ride away. Help wanted from mid-late May 2014 onwards.
Region: Turgovishte regionI do not need any more volunteers for this year, Thank you. 4 years ago we (being Lisa myself, Reuben my 21 year son, Zoé my 17 year daughter), took on this beautiful & wild wooded land which has not been lived on for maybe 30 years. We wish to continue renovating our cob & oak 3 roomed cottage, clear fallen & dead trees, grow vegetables, build animal housing, have bees, make fences, plant hedges, harvest fruit, sit & enjoy, share the space, learn & teach and that will do to start as the list is endless. We 3 have been volunteers & have done lots of hosting of various sorts. Staying with us will be primitive, comfortable, well fed & hopefully interesting & fun! We are off grid. We have 2 horses, 1 nanny goat & her kids (depending on the time of year), 4 cats & a small dog. We also look after 3 neighbours goats & kids. I do now have internet at home but is not always reliable, so please be patient and give plenty of time between requesting and time you wish to be here!! I always reply to requests! Blessings.
Region: oreshetsMy husband and i help with rescue animals here in Bulgaria,we currently have living with us 12 dogs, 4 goats, chickens, turkeys, 18 cats, 4 horses. our family is growing rapid as we also foster, our lives revolve around animals. we came to live in Bulgaria 4 years ago from the Manchester area of the uk.

Region: veliko tarnovo BulgariaHi, I am renovating an old house and barns in the village of Hotnitsa, 15km from the town of Veliko Tarnovo. Honey House will eventually become a Yoga, Reiki and horse trekking center, we have already had a few guests in the B&B and have more booked thorough the year as well as a trickle of day guests for yoga, horse riding and therapies. Basically I need help to turn the dream into a reality. I am looking for people with some building/restoration knowledge, you don't have to be a master crafts person, but if you are that would be fantastic. Also artists to add beautiful instillations, find creative ways to make ugly old furniture look stunning or at least quirky and to help hide the cracks with colour and laughter. Workaways with a good sense of humour, who are willing to give everything a go, are much appreciated. I would like this to be a happy experience for everyone. You need to be able to work without constant supervision as I am often busy with the horses or teaching, so people with an ability to structure their own days and get on with the work is important. There are 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 chickens and 4 horses who call this place their home. They are very much part of the family, and are all over the furniture, very playful and sometimes a pain in the bum. If you don't love animals this really is not the right place for you. I am a vegan. But I do not expect you to be vegan whilst here, but only ask that you dont cook meat here, what you do away from the house in your own time is up to you I have travelled extensively throughout the years and have many a funny travel tale, and also enjoy listening to other peoples tales and learning about people, their culture and languages. Living at Honey House is about loving nature and living a life which brings about a higher vibration full of love and laughter, whilst not being to serious about anything. Its great to giggle :) Workaways are very welcome to join Yoga classes (if there is space) learn reiki and ride the horses in their own time.
Region: Veliko Turnovo.I have decided to do a bit of traveling myself and will be teaching in China for a year. I do not want to lose touch with workaway but we will not need volunteers for a few month. We are a friendly and easy going couple in our 50s who moved to central Bulgaria 7 years ago. Our house is 30 minutes out of the old capitol of Veliko Turnovo. The country garden is large with lots of trees , we also have a field that has not been in use for years, with old stone walls, some in need of tender loving care. Help in the garden, keeping down the weeds, creating borders and general garden work. Tree care and maintenance, some repair work on stone walls if possible, We would like our volunteers to feel at home and to enjoy their time with us. We would expect help 5 days a week for 5 hours a day. It is really hot over here and we would not expect anyone to do too much in the heat. So if it too hot for us to work then we think it is too hot for you. Anyone interested in Fishing would be able to go with Jim. He goes fishing at least once a week to get a break from me. Ha.Ha. There is a bar in our village and a couple of shops. There is a regular bus service to several towns. We have 2 dogs who live outside, and 2 little princesses who live indoors. They are friendly. We are NOT vegetarians but I think I can put together a reasonable meal for those who are.
