  • Description


    We are an educational, natural build, using Cob, Straw bale, Tadelakt and clay plastering.. in fact all kinds of natural materials to use for building. It is owned and directed by Susan who owns it and directs the educational aspects of all the progress here. It is located in a small traditional village in central Bulgaria, where life is simple and proceeds as it has for the past centuries. It is rural, agricultural and is 15 kms from the beautiful small city of Veliko Turnovo, the past capital of Bulgaria during the Second cultural Renaissance. The climate is perfect. there are 4 seasons, and much of the country is covered in trees. We have all kinds of nature here and many forms of wild life. Only those people who love natural building and simple life will like it here. As I do!

    There are many fabulous sights to see here in the locale. Veliko Turnovo has some of the best night life in Bulgaria for the free time. Night life in the village is calm, but friendly.
