Welcome! We are a couple from Germany and we are in love with Bulgaria, so we found a very old house to buy in a very wild nature close to Kjustendil, by the village Bunovo. Our dream is to make a simple, sweet and magical home for us and for people, who want to connect more deeper to nature and the elements, to learn about herbs and talking with wild animals. Now we start to rebuilding the house with some little international group. There is an expert in eco building who likes to share his knowledge. First step is to fix the roof and the basement. We want to use old technology and natural material, like clay and wood.
This valley is surrounded by forest and mountain. Also near by are living more people, like a little communitiy, musicians and nature lovers.
We are looking for people who want to learn about natural bulding in a very wild place with kitchen outside and cooking on fire and sleeping in the tent or just under the sky. The food is vegetarian. In the free time is music and many nice possibility to walk around. The place is far from civilization - 4 km from the main road (dirt road and some walking) and 20 km from the nearest city. The hot mineral Turkish baths are 25 km away and we often visit them. Internet connection is only on the mobile phone.
To be in this place is just healing.
