  • Description


    retired 64 years old English man now living in Bulgaria among rolling hills and the Balkan mountains in a 2 bed / modern English styled home with water and electricity in the wintertime skiing is available in the mountains and in the summer months walks hiking and an abundance of historic sites the air is pure and clean and traffic is at a very minimum the roads have more potholes then usual so drivers need to take it easy 2 towns nearby are Montana to the north and Berkavitsa to the south approximately 14k away the cost of living is so cheap that my state pension is almost worth double so it is ideal for retired folk wanting a quiet life with the ability to buy extra goodies and more luxuries quite a few Brits now live here in the north of the country rather than the south where sunny beach and Bergas is located on the black sea coast. like I said I am retired and have much experience in self-sufficiency my house was built and is built to British standards facing the Balkan mountains I can also help and provide for a single parent with a preschool child who is looking for a longer stay up two or three months and I can also help with the cost of flights. it would also be an advantage if you hold a full driving license as the nearest town for shopping is 14km away
