    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Working in contact with animals especially with donkeys, taking care of them, taking them for a walk in the various mountain paths in the area is truly a beautiful experience that can give you a lot. Madiare is a town located 60km south of Sofia there are convenient buses every hour, a few kilometers away is the ski resort of Borovets. In summer you can choose various mountain trails that will take you up to peaks up to 2900 meters high but above all to the beautiful and famous 7 Rila lakes

  • Help


    We are looking for people willing to help us in the care of these animals and in the management of the farm. Besides 17 donkeys we also have 7 chickens, 4 cats and two dogs. We have several renovations planned for this spring summer 2021, a new chicken coop, fences, new barn etc. etc. It would be ideal to host people who have had experience with animals, woodwork and with children.
