  • Description

    Description

    This is a newly started project of creating a living village from scratch on a green field. Our place is located in the middle the Bulgarian sea coast, where the Balkan Mountain kisses the Black Sea. We are surrounded by a lot of nature, huge oak forests, meadows and the beautiful view towards the Irakli beach in the east. Here the human beings are learning to interact consciously with each other and Mother Nature.

    Focused on achieving sustainability in the way humans live and work, our intention is to spread the message and the example of a conscious way of interacting with Nature, applying the Permaculture principle and ethics.

    We are in the beginning of developing our community. Realizing that the most challenging aspect in life is the interaction and the relations with other people, we are looking at every task, small or big, as a new possibility for inner work and development.

    Accommodation

    The accommodation is of a camping type in tents or caravans. We intent to build a couple of tippies for the coming summer. We have a flowing water and solar powered electricity. Fully functional bathroom with washing machine.

    In our kitchen we cook mainly vegetarian meals. We are trying to grow as much as possible our own food and to buy clean products from similar projects like ours with sustainable practices. We are proud to share our completely locally produced and home backed bread from the ancient crop called Einkorn.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The closest beach is called Irakli (5 min by car) and is one of the last wild beaches in Bulgaria. Nearby is located Cape Emine(30 min by car), which is the endpoint of the European walking route E3 (its Bulgarian section is also known as "Kom–Emine"). It is a place closely related to the Balkan history. Through a bus line the village of Banya is easily connected with a few tourists places famous with their beach areas and ancient history like Obzor (15 min), Sunny Beach (25 min), Old Town Nessebar (40 min).
