  • Description


    We are a young creative and active family living in a house in the Balkans forest in the middle of Bulgaria. We are starting our lives here and we need some extra help with our projects in the house.

    We are family of 5 (where 2 of them are our doggies) and a baby girl :) Luben is a very creative person, he loves working outside and experiments with different materials. Anabel is a digital freelancer and loves to develop creative projects. Maxy and Maya are our loving dogs. We live very much in peace in this house, the forest surrounds us and the air and water are what we consider very good quality.

    This will be a very active year 2021 so we would love to have some help.

    Project 1. Luben is planning to build a cabine in a hill near by.

    Project 2. Anabel is planning to make a room for our baby girl and also we would love someone who can help me to take care of her when I am cooking or working (she will be 6 months old on the 18th of February)

    Project 3. We would love to have someone who wants to work in the garden and in our little green house.

    Project 4. If you happen to be involved with computers, design and graphic design you are very welcome to work in some marketing and digital projects.

    Project5. helping me out in home.

    Project 6: Anabel would like to do some DYI Boho decor for home, so you can help out with that :)

    We were also workawayers, so we do our best to provide space and agree on hours of work and the tasks that you prefer. So it feels more relaxed and equal. Mostly we like to work as a team :)

    Our place is calm, the forest is very beautiful, we have some springs with the most amazing water. We try to eat very healthily and we are oke with vegetarians and vegans ... we eat fish and meat from time to time and lots of veggies.
    We have a house next to our house, so the workawayers can sleep there (some of the rooms are private rooms and others shared)

    We expect a Workawyeer that is honest with his/her words, open-minded, that takes initiative, open to communicate and kind.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very well located from a touristic perspective: 4 km hike to a small traditional village, 6 km to a historical town, 30 km from Veliko Tarnovo. Aside from that, you will get to experience nature, if you come in summer big landscapes with herbal teas, Bulgarian food. If you want to join us you can experience time with some of the Bulgarian relatives from Luben that are really loving and they show the traditional life from Bulgarians. And Anabel is Colombian some things from her food.
