    Description

    Hello. I am Neli. I am the third generation owner of a two decares (2000 square meters) family farm. The farm is 25 km from Plovdiv, an ancient city built around seven hills, and the second biggest city in Bulgaria.

    I am a Doctor of Philosophy and taught for many years in Bulgaria and Australia. I am now retired and dedicating my time to fulfilling my dream of bringing the family farm back to life.

    Public transport is available to and from Plovdiv twice a day, including weekends. If needed, I am available to pickup Workawayers in Plovdiv. If you come into Sofia and I am in town, I can also pick you up and we will drive to the farm together.

    Plovdiv is the second largest city in Bulgaria and said to be one of the oldest cities in Europe. It has many attractions including the Ancient Theater, Historical Museum, Ancient Stadium, Ethnographic Museum, Tsar Simeon's Garden and more. There are over 200 archeological sites to explore.

    Hisarya is a small modern resort town known for its remains of the ancient Roman city of Diocletianopolis. Over 20 mineral hot springs are available as well.

    Pavel Banya is another small town famous for its mineral springs.
