In the first place let's introduce ourselves,Our names are Pavel,Hristo and Kaloyan and we are living in an era when depopulation of mountains areas in Bulgaria is becoming a sad reality. It doesn't matter what the cause is, the point is that all of the treasure that our ancestors have labored and made something out of NOTHING,now is getting lost,fading into distance because of the indifference that,we,the people have it in our nature from time to time.
Someone said: An unhabited house it's falling down by itself,an unpracticed tradition is getting lost and an unspoken language it's dying!
We want to put an end to all this,of course we can't make it fully right,but we hope that maybe one day,some other people will follow our exemple and will spread the word. So, after a few years ago
we bought a group of old houses(roundabout 100 years old) in a beautiful village called Sopot/Bulgaria. The houses are in the same courtyard,but poorly only one is livable.
We have united our forces together to rebuild them and little by little the courtyard it's starting to look hospitable.But,of course,''it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock'n'roll''.It seems hard,but what is easy in this world?!We would be extremely happy to have you guys,here with us to change some experiences,to go for a walk in the village,to show you the stunning forests and rivers,to eat some appetizing traditional Bulgarian food,and in the mean time to work with smile on our faces,like Bulgarians do. A wise man said one day:Alone,by yourself,you can't do anything in life! And we are not alone anymore!

Private Room" is not the option that I would choose, but it is the closest! Our guests can sleep in the outbuilding which is full of hay! The haystack is warm and comfortable. There is a roof above, so there will be no problem if it rains. There is extra room space in the house if some of the guests do not wish to sleep in the hay! No roommates, mate! We are in the woods! We can give you some blankets, but at the moment we are not fully stocked with all kinds of sheets, blankets, pillows etc., so if possible bring your own sleeping bags! With a little help from you guys, we can make this place a little bit more comfortable!
