    We take care of a retreat center in the mountains of central Bulgaria. A place surrounded by beautiful nature and lots of things to see. Here we look after two domes with few guest houses and a kitchen, big yard with fruit trees, vegetable garden, camping area and also lots of cats. We host loads of tourists during the year, organizing cultural, spiritual and health - care retreats, mainly in the Native American tradition, but not only. We work with the intention to develop conscient and healthy relations with everything that surrounds us. This space is available for people to heal, rest, grow, reconnect with themselves and unfold their potential.

    We are right next to the one of the biggest national parks in Bulgaria, surrounded by wonderful nature, eco-trail, lots of monasteries, waterfalls, peaks, lakes, hot mineral sources and an ethnographic complex.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are situated in the mountain, 5km away from the city, surrounded by forest, at the river bank. From here you can hike to a beautiful eco-trail or to the highest waterfall in the Balkans. There are historical monuments and museums in the city and also lots of monasteries around that you can visit. Sometimes we organize trips together and we visit interesting places further in the area of Rose valley.

    Sometimes the place is full of people and there is a lot going on, and sometimes it stays very quiet and cozy for weeks.

    We like to share our free time by doing things together but we also respect the need of personal space and time. Normally we prepare the food together, food is mainly vegetarian.

    You can get to us by 1,5hrs walking or with a car from the nearest city, we can help you with the organization of your transport.

    We are looking for creative and conscious people who enjoy working and taking responsibility.
    There are some simple rules at the place that need to be respected.

    * PLEASE, notice that we can discuss payment only in case of long term staying and extra engagement.
