  • Description


    We are Ian, Kate and Andrew. We are English (A couple about 70, going on 40!) and Kate's son.

    We have wi-fi internet access.

    We have 2 dogs who win the hearts of everyone they meet! We also have 5 cats, also very friendly and we have 4 pet ducks.

    We do not have TV. We love music and there is usually something playing. Food is good, wholesome with multi-cultural roots.

    We are currently putting up a building on site (see below). We offer flexible hours - agreed between you and us: 25 hrs per week.

    We live in a village with 2 shops/pubs. It is 4 kms from Dobrich, a city of 65,000 people; 30 km from the sea, including either quiet beaches or lively resorts - a bus ride away.

    You will see life in a rural village (a common method of transport is a horse and cart) but is only 4kms from a city. You can explore farther afield, buses are very cheap. You can learn some Bulgarian!

    We have a large garden (whole site is 1850 m2) and it is now largely landscaped but there is a long way to go yet.

    Obviously, it has been very strange for the last three years with Covid19 holding us up considerably.

    We are putting up a new building on the plot so there will be work there. If you have any experience in DIY, it will be welcome.

    There are are a lot of examples of why we need a welder on site. If you can weld you will be very welcome; we have the equipment but not the skill, yet.

    There is much painting and varnishing to be done, inside and out and fencing jobs to do. There are other areas of the garden requiring less skilled work: digging, planting, weeding, lawn mowing and strimming.

    Ian is a qualified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher so can give help and guidance with your English, if required.
