We are a Danish/Bulgarian family, part-time residents in the village of Vrav, Bregovo Municipalicy, Vidin District, Bulgaria.
We’re welcoming workawayers now and until the 9th of August- but you can stay couple of days after that.
Preferably, you have previous experience with farming/manual tasks or repairs. In the summer months there isn't much to do in terms of wine-making, so we'll focus on renovation, gardening, painting and the like.
As per WorkAway standard rules, we offer free accommodation and 3 meals a day, in exchange of 25-hours a week schedule. It's very hot right now, so the work schedule is mostly before lunch and spread over e.g 6 days. You'll have the afternoons free.

You'll get to try our wines from previous years, as well as Bulgarian (or other regional) wines. You will learn about the whole wine-making cycle, the fermentation process, local grape variaties and various wine terms.
You’ll meet our fellow villagers (both Bulgarian and foreing) and experience the local folklore.
We like long dinners, good conversations, comparing cultural experiences, discussing world and national politics and recent history.

We have a lot of renovation, gardening and clearing tasks : wood chopping, vegetation control and landscaping (digging, moving earth, removing pebbles and broken roof tiles from the earth). Other practical tasks outside (moving things, arranging construction materials we want to re-use) and inside (painting, clearing, etc) will also come up.
Let us know if you are extra handy with power tools or have carpenting, etc experience, and we’ll easily find you a project. We really like recycling/upcycling, and we have loads of reclaimed wood, and many other materials.
Plus, there might be a few demolition/stripping old paint projects, or plastering/masonry (if you’re good at that?)
Farm-type/rural accommodation in a separate house (from ours) with an inside toilet and shower.
If you have asthma or allergies (dust, hay/grass, lime paint) or are afraid of house spiders or bugs, etc, please consider well before coming (we are really out in the countryside).
There is a mobile (3G) internet modem that is limited to around 60 GB per month, so your digital habits/consumption need to be coordinated with the others staying in the house 😉. We can provide you with an old TV and a DVD player, and a range of films, as well as we can lend you some books in English. Please, bring your own tablet or laptop, and of course, download beforehand whatever films or series you can, as streaming many films/series won't be an option.
Eating arrangements: As a rule, we aim for joint dining at our house (breakfast and lunch) or you can have your dinner “to go”, if you want to eat earlier (we're keeping Mediterranian time/style with dinner around 20.30-21.00 o'clock).
We are meat-lovers ourselves, but if you have special preferences, we’ll make sure to provide other choices or agree with you to take care of your own cooking (and bring food to the common meals).
If you are vegans or smokers, please stock up before you arrive, as the choices in the local shops are limited or non-existent.
The village is on the Danube, so visiting the beach of walking along the river bank is a nice past-time. The river current is very strong, so consider well before going for a swim!
There are two shops in the village (no cigarettes sale, though). There is no ATM in the village and the nearest one (in the neighbouring village) doesn’t always work, so plan your cash situation before you arrive.
On your afternoons and days off, you could plan excursions in the area. We'll lend you an old/well-used bike for daily use. The dirt streets in the village don’t make for a pleasant ride (and often further damage the bikes), but it should be good enough for short rides (within 5-10 km radius).
If you want to do picnics or BBQ/camp-fire at the beach, we can help with with some equipment.
In Novo selo (5km away) there is a municipal sports complex, with a tennis court and a basketball court (you can lend the sports equipment from us) and a swimming pool.
The distance to the Serbian boarder is only 12 km, and afterwards it's 25 km to Negotin, which the closest provincial town on the Serbian side.
Vidin, which the district town on the Bulgarian side (30km from the village), offers several sightseeing options, including the Baba Vida Fortress and the Konaka town museum. There is a nice town garden/alleys along the river, with restaurants (including fish restaurants on the water).
We go often to Vidin for shopping or eating out, so we could definitely give you a lift, if you are flexible with working around our schedule. Otherwise there is a bus line 3 times a day on week days and two times a day on weekends.
A bit longer distance but definitely worth visiting in the Vidin district are Belogradchik (a small town surrounded by stone formations and a breathtaking 360˚ view from the medieval castle) and the Magura Cave.
