  • Description


    I have a 5 bedroom house in a beautiful little village in the Rhodopi mountains of Bulgaria near the Greece border.
    I need help on the new build of my living room and kitchen, plus general DIY within the house and basic gardening.
    2-3 extra pairs of hands would be great to help me get things moving! All tools supplied.
    The plan is to use this space to build a creative wellbeing retreat, so anyone with skills in website design, content, logos etc or any knowledge of getting their own business off to a start from scratch, would be an extra bonus!
    This is an opportunity to really connect with nature and get immersed in a idyllic little community, with a mix of Bulgarian locals and young ex pats from around the world looking for alternative life styles and eco living.
    You would have your own bedroom, plus 3 meals a day supplied (and snacks) please note this is a veggie household though you are welcome to buy and prepare your own meat with no judgment 😊
    I'm looking for 5 hours a day Mon-Fri. On your time off, there is plenty of beautiful offerings of the Bulgarian mountains including natural hot springs, view point treks and waterfalls. In the evenings we can go for Rakia around a bonfire, or often have social dinners at nearby friends mountain houses.
    Also from time to time, I can offer free yoga classes to anyone needing a stretch before or after work!
    Just a heads up it's a very remote area with lack of transport, best if you have your own transport, otherwise you can get around by foot, lifts by me, taxi or donkey cart!
