  • Description

    Description

    The rest-house is in a very remote area, away from civilization - with beautiful hills, rivers and nature. Currently we (Me and my Dutch friend) are making the rest-house ready for the next season as well as giving it a new design conform the permaculture philosophy.. You can be part of a eco-system change in this area. We would really like to make sure that you feel comfortable. I will travel between the rest-house and my house in Vidin, where I have a shop as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learn about Bulgarian culture, language, meeting tourists from all countries. Close to me are some foreigners making a healing space in the forest as well as starting different off-grid projects. The person that coordinates the volunteers is currently transforming the rest-house towards a more sustainable ecological place.

    Help

    Helping in the (permaculture) garden, building fences, cleaning the yard and some other small tasks making the place more beautiful by leaving your creative expressions. The project right now is establishing a permaculture garden, starting to separate the trash and building the first compost toilet for the place. Later plans will be connecting to the water from the well, getting electricity from a propeller, turbine or solar and start making own cleaning products as well as go zero-waste.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Personal room with all facilities and internet. Unfortunately the area is so remote that there is no phone signal. Walking 2/3 km to the road will solve this. We made a special construction to have (fast) internet.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is lot's of opportunities to walk, cycle and enjoy the beautiful nature around as well as visiting the small villages around and see old Bulgarian village life. There are several buses per day from the nearest villages to Vidin, which are relatively cheap. It's 2/3 kilometers walking to the bus station. I am a young guy that has a shop as well in Vidin and I am interested in meeting people from all over the world to have exchange and fun.
