*️*️ Update November 2016 *️*️

*️*️ end of update *️*️
I have had a lifelong ambition about running a Eco friendly camping ground, that provides its own electricity from solar, gets its own water from our well (for the garden only!), grows its own organic food and has its own animals; is near a forest or national park and a river enabling us to catch our own fish. Of course lots of people love to go on fishing holidays so being near a large river was an absolute must! The mighty Tunja river & National Reserve forest (or as the locals say Jungle) is just 2 fields away.
Our goal : To restore this beautiful property into a thriving modern organic self sufficient eco friendly camping ground.
We have over 5000 square meters of camping space and welcome travellers who wish to come and help out, so if you enjoy the open countryside and have a tent you are welcome to come. If you wish to stay in one of our rooms please understand that they currently require restoration work, they are liveable but not exactly luxury! Beds are mattresses on the floor.
We can only accommodate 1 person at a time currently, or possibly a couple travelling together.
Currently we need help with the following...
Gardening - Weeding - Planting - Pruning.
Animals - Chickens need daily mucking out.
House - General repairs - Maintenance - Restoration Work - Cleaning - Cooking
Grounds - Fence repairs - Wood collecting, Sizing & Chopping
In exchange for 4-5 hours work a day we will provide meals.
Please note: we do not allow smoking inside the house.
How to get here:
We are happy to collect you free of charge from either Elhovo or Yambol, but if you require a Airport transfer (Burgas Only) we will have to ask you for fuel money (currently 60 lev). There are buses that go from Burgas > Elhovo a couple of times a day or a Taxi will charge you 120 lev.

We are looking for people who can help renovate our old house to a high standard, this includes some building work and decorating. We are also looking for people to look after animals and maintain the Organic Veg Garden, weeding / watering etc etc
Work is light and non demanding, we take long leisurely breaks during the hot days and party a lot in the evenings with the main meal taking centre stage normally around a camp fire in the summer months.
We have 5000 square meters of field to camp in if you have a tent, otherwise there is limited room space consisting of 2 very large upstairs rooms that are in need of converting / renovating, be aware currently these rooms are in a bit of a state with plaster missing from walls and only a single bed in each.
There are lots of things to see and do around the village or local town of Elhovo. The campsite is situated just 2 fields away from the mighty Tundzha River where you can enjoy a relaxing day swimming to cool off or trying to catch one of the many different types of fish found in the river, these include Pike & Cat Fish!
Many more interesting things to do can be found on the local Elhovo Tourist Information website, but quickly here is a small list...
Canoeing / Kayaking
Fresh water river Swimming
plus many more...
