  • Description

    Description

    We are a three generational family from Scotland, Carol 64, Crystal 33 and Luna 11 whose life in the historical village of Cherven started when Carol bought a property in 2006. She then moved to live here in 2008 renovating and bringing back to life their first property on the outskirts of the village, which is situated in the Rusenski Lom Natural Park and is 35 kms south west of Ruse.

    We now live and work over three traditional Bulgarian properties with just over 2 acres of land where we have a large organic garden for growing food and keeping animals. We have goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, cats and dogs.

    We enjoy having volunteers come to help and to share this beautiful spot with some magnificent views.

    There is always plenty to do including, clearing land, weeding, planting, making compost bins, basic building and loads of ongoing projects which are sometimes weather dependent and whether you have the skills or not.

    There are beds in the house, suitable for singles and couples and there is a caravan with a double bed. There is also plenty of land for camping. We have 2 tipis which will be erected once the poles are prepared. We provide good wholesome food and there is excellent wifi access.

    We are particularly interested in people who enjoy land work and gardening and/or who have basic building trade skills but have generally found that everyone has something to contribute.

    We are flexible in terms of tasks and time input and we can agree what would work for both of us.
