We have a new home in Bulgaria in a village called Palamartsa, with a small amount of land - both in need of lots of care and renovation. We have 2 dogs, one child at school and a friend staying with us. My wife and I are both South African and moved here after 10 years living in the UK.

We have breeding pigs and rabbits and the vegetables are growing. We also have loads of fruit trees - so later in the season - we will be making jams, juices, preserves and Rakia (the local home brew brandy) .

We need some help with everyday tasks, including building, painting, carpentry, planting, animal feeding and care and general outdoor cleaning of the land and fencing repairs.

You can try your hand at stone wall construction, mud brick wall building and renovation, clay plastering and even some strawbale construction is on the menu.

You don't need any specific experience, just a willingness to try your hand at the hundreds of tasks that need doing.

We have place for 2 people at a time - for 1 to 2 weeks, possibly longer. Accommodation is a large tent, with bathroom facilities indoors, and an area to relax in the evening with a campfire. The property is very much a work in progress.

The local village has pubs and shops, post office, and plenty of beautiful walks and wildlife. There is fishing at local lakes, or just relax in the sun.

The closest town Popovo is 7km away, with regular buses and boasts coffee shops, banks, pubs, restaurants, a swimming pool and plenty of shops and the local market. The national bus and train network works from here.

Feel free to email any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
