  • Description


    We, that is currently our family of 5, two good friends and helping hands, another family of 4 - and our animal crew (dogs, cats, rabbits, donkey and 2 foals), as well as lots of machines and tools from a carpenter's workshop among others....
    And always more interested people and supporters.... Also a wonderful growing network of dear Bulgarians here in the region. Our family has been in Bulgaria for two years. We live in a sparsely populated area with beautiful, partly untouched or no-longer-touched nature. The area in the border triangle Bulgaria-Greece-Turkey has a lot of history, which can be seen in many castle ruins or in the museum. A few kilometres away is a large reservoir. Here in the village we regularly sit together at game nights, campfires, cook together, play football or table tennis and whatever else spontaneity brings forth!
