This summer 2020 I need building help, so I need people with bulding skills. Im going to build a terrace by my house and to build a platform for a Glamping tent, ecotoilet and an outdoor kitchen for an "Off grid R&B" Im planning to start here.
I live in an amazing remote place in the mountains and I live alone up here, quite far away from nearest neighbour and three kilometers from the closest village. The location in the mountains makes it a perfect place for people who want to connect with nature and wildlife. However eventhough its so far away from society Im just 1 1/2 hour door to door from the capital Sofia, so its easy to get here.
My place is situated in Vrachinski Balkan Nature Park and this part of Bulgaria is a well kept secret regarding its welth of wonderful unspoiled nature and numbers of outdoor activities it has to offer and its a mystery how its still so unknown on the regular tourist map. In fact I dont know any place in the world that has so much to offer to people searching for nature and adventure experiences.
Here are some things you will find within a maximum of 60 km from my place:
A number of hiking/eco-trails - River for fishing, rafting and canoning - Several big caves, some of them with underground lake and rivers - Horsebackriding in the mountains - Plenty of mountainbike trails - Hanggliding - Monasterys - Rockclimbing - Many Waterfalls of in some you can do rapelling, Swim in natural river mountain pools or at a swimming pool resort close to my place, Eat at cosy fishfarms and mountain restaurants.
As I mentioned, my plan is to create an Off Grid R&B retreat, offering people to come out in the unspoiled wild nature in this wonderful place where Im living.
I like the simple life and Im aiming for a sustainable and selfsufficient lifestyle, by for example recycling a lot of my waiste and growing my own vegetables etc.
I have done some work on the mainhouse and in the garden, but there are still much left to do. Last year I had some work awayers helping me in the garden and to renovate one of the rooms in the house. This summer 2020 I will focus on building a terrace connected to my house and to build an area for a Glamping tent and if possible a hut for my planned R&B retreat.
I dont smoke, but my workawayers and guests are allowed to smoke outdoors.
At the moment there is a limited access to internet, however you will have to have your own internet plan/contract to connect with the internet. For Free Wi-Fi and a good internet connection, you can go to a cafe in a village a few kilometers from the house. Maybe I will get a good internet connection this summer.
A little about me:
Im a lively, yet easy going, kind and adventurous Swedish woman. I think Im quite fun to be around and I love a good conversation. Travelling has always been a big part of my life and the previous two years before buying my farm in April 2018 I was living as a full time road nomad in a motor home travelling around in Europe. It was a great life, I lived on beaches, up in the mountains and on the countryside on different spots, mainly in Spain and Portugal.
I love animals and I have 2 dogs and a cat. I will problably get some chickens this summer.
Im also a very creative person and I use different art expressions....creativity is like oxygen to me...couldnt live without it! Much of my art I create from natural materials in my surroundings and I make a lot of recycled art as well.
You could say Im a sociable lonely wolf, as I dont mind at all to be alone here up on my mountain, but I also think it is nice to have some people around from time to time to socialize, have fun and exchange ideas with.

At the moment I mainly need building work help and some garden help.

You will have your own room in the main house.
You will get three meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner that will be prepared by me or a volunteer at the farm. Otherwise the kitchen is open and available at all time if you would like to have something in between the meals.
The farm is located in the mountains close to a village called Ignatitsa in the area of Vratsa in northwestern Bulgaria in the Balkan Mountain, with a number of natural parks and reserves. Vrachanski Balkan is a reserve protecting natural rock formations and offer incredible rock climbing opportunities. In this reserve, one can also find hiking trails, rivers and caves. Its also quite close to Sofia, only just about one hour by train from a villaga close to the farm.
