  • Description


    We have recently moved into a new family/holiday home and require help with various things.

    We have started taming an extremely overgrown backyard into what will eventually be a organic garden for veg, fruit, flowers, animals, bees and a wildlife pond as my son is obsessed with reptiles and amphibians. We currently have chickens, a rabbit and a rescued pup. more animals to follow as we build suitable housing.

    We also require less strenuous work like painting and then some harder labour work (underpinning) relaying stone paths, building a essential bbq etc but my husband is experienced in these things.

    I'd like someone relaxed, flexible and have their own initiative and who loves cakes as we bake often. I am always utilising the seasonal produce and making jams, chutneys and just cooking with lovely fresh produce.

    We have lovely neighbours who teach us lots about the Bulgarian lifestyle and food so I'd be happy to pass this knowledge on.

    We offer a double room with own toilet and use of the kitchen and house or a space for a campervan. I will cook daily and you will be welcome to join us or cook for yourself.

    The village is very small but we do go out , there's 2 village shops and there is transport to Varna etc. Can provide a bicycl if you fancy cycling anywhere.

    I do however prefer non party animals as we have two children.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We learn something new everyday to be honest, but I will learn with you about organic gardening and my husband can teach you lots about building/maintenance. Above all we can show you a more organic natural way of live as we want to be as self sufficient as possible. I love immersing myself into bulgarian style of live with all their traditions.

  • Help


    . The house needs minor restoration (painting etc) but the garden has been left to grow wild for about 5 years. I will need help starting up a organic garden, a wildlife pond and areas for various animals to live.

    My husband will expect some help with light building work but it's up to you how much you can help, if not, some childminding will be awesome so we can do it.
