Join us creating a place fo for Yoga, Art and lots of fun and help us reconstruct, restore and create the buildings and garden.
We are looking for open-minded people willing to spend some hours a day working, building and maintaining our Place.
We look for any helping hands in, on and around the house, when we are there.
There is an option to come outside of these periods as these are restricted to a few weeks only... as we have someone constantly looking after the house and guests.
Just let us know when you want to come and we can give you more information.
At the moment we will be working on various Projekts around the house (such as roof insulation with eco materials, kirpitch / bottle walls, painting, wood work and restauration, building work...) and the Garden.
Our priority is to continue with the oldesd part of the house and finish the clay walls and ceilings in the traditional woodframe stucture typical for the stara planina area.
We are almost finished with that and are now defining and building the interior walls and installations for water and heating system, bathroom and bedrooms...
If you fancy coming over, we are happy to have you and will supply accomodation and basic food if you are willing to help. You will be required to work approximatly 4 hours a day and also do your share of the household we all use together (shopping, cooking, cleaning). If you are a professional carpenter/ plumber/ electrician we can also arrange payment for some jobs. If so we ask for references and examples of your work.
If you come to join us you only pay for your flight and transfer.
Come and share some Laughs with us. We´re so excited to have you around ♥
Accommodation is basic (shared dorm with bunkbeds for up to 7 people or camping in the Garden/Barn, shared shower and toilet)
The accomondation and basic food are included. We are very tolerant and try to be respektful and mindful but also have not lost our humor and opinions - and are looking for likewise people, when it comes to food, religion, sprituality, politics, origin, gender or sexual orientation.
We try to provide a healthy and mainly vegetarian diet using mainly local products.
We can not provide cigarettes and alkohol - please make sure to bring what you like/need as there is no shop here.
There are different art materials, a slackline and yogamats available in the house... We can accomodate up to 7 People in a shared Bedroom and also have a big garden with enough space to camp. Runya is surrounded by the beautiful Landscape of the Stara Planina Balkan and offers lots of tranquility and opportunities to hike and explore the typical bulgarian country side...
Small trips to the surrounding sights can be arranged together. All seasons are beautiful in this area but as we have continental climate it can be very hot in summer, there can be heavy rains and cold nights as well as extremely cold winters with lots of snow - so make sure to bring the right clothes and shoes.
Cheap flights to Sofia are now with WiZZair/Ryanair available.
From there its easy to take a bus to Veliko Tarnovo or even very cheap reantal cars...
so you can come directly to Runya and can explore the area by yourself from there.... We are also happy to give some advice for roadtrippers to Bulgaria.
