  • Description


    Myself and my wife in our 60,s .we live in a small village in north eastern Bulgaria. We have around 1/2 acre of land, 5 dogs, 6 chickens. We have been here 6 years trying to turn it from an overgrown wasteland to our retirement home. We are uk citizens with permanent residency here. We love being part of the village life and have been warmly accepted by the locals. We are close to Serbia and Romania. Nearby are the towns of Montana and Berkovitsa ( a holiday destination and local ski resort in the winter). The Balkan mountains are very close by for walking and nature. There are nearby spa resorts famed for there water. There a lot of monasteries nearby for those who are interested.Here is almost a forgotten part of Bulgaria but it is beautiful and the real Bulgaria and the people have traditional values.
