  • Description


    I have a house in Begovo (near Plovdiv) Bulgaria which has been partly renovated.
    There is also an adjoining plot of land which needs transforming into an orchard to accommodate yurts.
    I plan to use the house and orchard to host my family and friends, but also to offer respite activity holidays to the siblings and families of children who are terminally ill or needing long term care.
    Plovdiv is central, so within 2 hours you can be: scuba diving in the Black Sea and Agean Sea; in the mountains hiking, climbing and snowboarding; kayaking, rafting and canyoning in the rivers; exploring by horseback or ATV; chilling out at the mineral spa in Hisarya.
