    Description

    Hello, brothers and sisters! We are active, smiling, open-minded people who live naturally in a beautiful wild place in Bulgaria, surrounded by forest and mountain. There is a small community of alternative people, musicians, travelers and nature-lovers here. We are all trying to create a paradise on Earth, another way of living, closer to nature and to our hearts.
    We are making our gardens, building our houses, making herbal remedies and cosmetics and spending most of our time outdoors.
    When he is not building, Stenly is making didgeridoos, cajons, drums and all kinds of instruments out of wood. He is very good at wood-carving and making music. Lora loves gardening, cooking, gathering herbs, making herbal balms and remedies, natural ideas :). We are also have organic gardens with vegetables and have lots of fruit trees, herbs and mushrooms in the valley.
    We have lots to share - music, yoga, meditation, reiki, tarot, marma therapies, Ayurveda way of living, gardening, working with wood ...we can create together a magical space to work, live, sing and dance. Everyone is welcome to share their knowledge or to do a workshop.
    OUR CURRENT PROJECT and dream is to create a yoga hall and a forest school, so that our children can grow and learn in a natural environment. So if you feel inspired by this and have any ideas for natural constructions, playgrounds, earth art and like to take part of our project- you are welcome. We will start this summer by inviting parents and children to work together with us - so children can build their own school.
    We are looking for people who enjoy building, gardening, child care and various types of outdoor work. If you are talented with children and enjoy playing with them and be their friend, you can be of great help too.
    As a whole we try to do everything with joy, to share the abundance of life and to be simple and happy with what comes. To be in harmony we try to to be as flexible and accepting as possible.
    We are eating a vegetarian diet. The place is quite away from "civilization" - 4 km from the main road (dirt road and some walking) and 20 km from the nearest city - there is no shop or bar :) we live quite natural life - there is outside toilet and shower, but the hot mineral Turkish baths are 25 km away and we often visit them. Internet connection is only on the mobile phone.
    If you like living closer to nature you can come and share the abundance and joy of life together.
    Together we can create a paradise to live in.
    Now we have a 3 years old boy - Orphey, so we will need also help with teaching and playing with the little angel.

    Accommodation

    You can sleep in the house, on the tower, in the tipi, in your tent or under the stars :) whatever you feel like. The house is open for guests so usually you will share room with several people.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is a beautiful region, little explored by tourists, so here you can discover another Bulgaria, off the beaten path. There are the beautiful rocks of Shegava canion near by. It is also nice for short treks around the house or visiting small villages. There is a very beautiful waterfall - Skakavitsa waterfall around 15 km from our place. And of course - the Turkish baths in Kyustendil are not to be missed :) We are in the wild - meaning - 4 km off the main road and 20 km to the nearest shop- so bring all you need. We go once or twice a week to the shop by car, so you can join for shopping, but not every day! You can come by bus from Sofia or Kyustendil, and then walk 4 km to the house...or we can pick you up from somewhere if possible. Hitch-hiking is a good option.
