I'm looking for a practical independent person or couple to spend time in the Bulgarian Mountains. Ideally suit a creative, contemplative type who needs peace and quiet and values natural beauty. Also, someone who likes dogs! If you have gardening and DIY skills, even better...I'm particularly looking for people with time to stay for a few weeks at least, hopefully longer.

This placement is a bit different - I am away in the city of Sofia for at least half of the week, so you'd need to be able to cook for yourselves then and work away at some gentle-ish tasks or other, then when I'm back, we can do more work together and I'm a pretty good veggie cook ;) So, it's somewhere you could use as a base and explore the country and this is what volunteers have done before. Obviously, as I'll be away part of the time, you need to have some gardening/DIY skills and be able to work unsupervised. There's nothing back-breaking or particularly gruelling though, just jobs around the place that I'd love to have the time to do myself......also, I have a 4 yr old daughter who comes every other week or more, so hopefully you enjoy children a little too.

The house is on the edge of a village, so there are quiet neighbours 100m away and a couple of shops within 6 minutes walk. There are further shops and medical facilities 6km away, an easy cycle or hitchhike with the friendly villagers. It's a very safe place to stay.

The whole area is full of stunning, unspoiled forests and mountains, all highly accessible! The guest house where you'll be staying is cosy, with a log stove and a modern kitchen and bathroom. There is wi-fi.
Sofia is an hour away, which is where I work, returning to the village whenever I can. We'll be in separate houses though, so this won't disturb you and guests also use rooms in the guest house occasionally.
