Hello we are Tatqna, Iana and Vasilena, family of mother with two daughters. We are striving to live in a havenly garden in harmony with nature. Following our dream we already have our land ( 5 hectars, in the outskits of “Stara Planina”, 29km off the coast of the sea). Here we have started building our house out of natural materials, and it is not complete. For the last 5 years our house has been waiting the right peoples and available finances. We were fortunate to meet Stefan, construction engineer, who share our believes and our goal. He knows how to build structures from natural materials. Together we made a work plan. All the people who want to come and help us, will have the choice to sleep in their own tents under the stars (need to have good sleeping bags), or to sleep inside the house. A hostel and a guest house are available in the nearby village. We will act according to the he number of the participants of the event.
The place is magical. Here every plant knows the purity of space filled with sunshine and air. The whole place makes one happy. The Forrest around us is oaks and a river that passes not far away has two small beautiful waterfalls.
You can feel this by yourself coming for a day if you like.
Please let anyone who would like to participate to contact us in a private message and to state the dates on which he or she will participate in the building of our dream.
Soon we will post a schedule.
