We are a couple living in a typical rural village here in Bulgaria for just over 3 years now.We have chickens, 2 dogs,2 cats and a large organic garden which plays a large part in our daily life,just as it does with the locals.Not only growing veggies but also preserving them in various ways for the the colder winter months is a major part of the lifestyle here, along with wine and spirit brewing and home reared animals giving a more holistic way of living. And we are more than happy to share our knowlegde with our workers along with how the local people are living.
Busy untill the end of september now but contact us anyway
Apart from the house we live in we are also renovating a 100year property just 3km from the lovely historcal city of Velik Tarnovo.The house has 2ft thick stone walls on the ground floor and a brick first floor with internal timber and mud walls.It is set on the side of a valley facing south with forest views.Here we need help with painting, pointing, plumbing, tiling, woodwork, and then theres work in the garden.This needs weeding, clearing and landscaping which will involve new walls, patio, paths and garden spaces. Generaly our volunteers work for 6 hours a day/5 days a week.

Ours volunteers will stay in a small,traditional bulgarian eco built house in our village. It is basic but sweet and has all the amenities required. This gives our volunteers the opportunaty to have their own space and freedom whilst not with us if they desire. We provide excellent vegetarian lunches and healthy food for you to make your own breakfast and evening meals.
Our village has good ameneties with 2 shops, 3 bars, post office and reasonable public transport.
