  • Description


    I have been living and working away from my home country for the past 12 years. I am a chef and last 6 years I was running the kitchen of the northern most restaurant in the world on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. Last year I decided to come back home and bought a property in a poor but very beautiful village in north west of Bulgaria called Stakevtsi. 15km away is the town of Belogradchik and it’s amazing sightseeing’s Magura cave and Belogradchik rocks. I am very humble and easy going person with whom is very easy to get along.

    You can enjoy the amazing nature and the peaceful life of the village. The people in the village and the villages around are very interesting and for them will be real attraction if foreign people come to our village. The grannies will give you fruits and veggies and the old men would love to have a drink with you even tho they don’t understand a thing.

    . I will be happy to host travelers from around the world and provide them accommodation and food in exchange for some work in the yard as cutting the grass and plant some flowers. The village life is beautiful!
