Gorsko Kosovo is located in 50 km of Veliko Tarnovo. It is a little village right next to the Alexandar Stamboliiski reservoir with a magnificent wild nature.
Eco Village "Joy" is a place for people who value their health in every sense of the word, taking care of it, in harmony with nature and animals. This is a place for those who care for each other as they care for themselves. Here live people who have strong morals and values and we realize that where we live depends on our attitude towards each other, by kindness and helpfulness that his offer. Here live people who generously give - time, energy, ideas, labor, understanding, wisdom and love and are open to receive generous gifts of the Creator coming in every possible way and by every guest.
We believe that the path of people living in the 21st century is the path of non-violence so do not consume alcohol, tobacco and meat / which is violent to themselves or to others /. We strive to live simply and in close contact with nature. Our joys and pleasures are communicating with animals, nature walks, horseback riding, picking herbs and tea, yoga, meditation, gymnastics, clean eating, nice quiet music and intimate conversations that nourish the heart with joy, and mind with wisdom.
Eco village ”Joy” has three renovated houses. They are equipped with all amenities including constant hot water, washing machine in each, WI-FI. Located in a common yard of eight acres, with lots of flowers, trees and benches, as two completely renovated. In front is a large playground with swings, climbing frames and other children's entertainment.
Our 4-person canoe is available for those who want to keep their muscles and breathing in a good condition.
