Hello! We are looking for trustworthy, responsible sitters who will enjoy quiet, rural living in a beautiful house on the edge of a rustic Bulgarian village. Responsibilities will vary on the season, but the main thing will be to look after our home, garden and friendly cat and dog.
During 2018 we are open to offers from housesitters. We have used sitters to suit our needs in the past, so why not offer our house to suits yours!? (We also need a good excuse to go on holiday!) If you are in Bulgaria and want to experience some rural, country living then let us know and we may be able to work something out! (Due to work commitments it will probably not be a long term offer.)
We are a young British couple who moved to Bulgaria in early 2015 to live the simple life! People who would like to experience this kind of living would love it here!
Feeding the cat and the dog is the biggest priority as well as taking the dog for walks as often as you care to in the surrounding countryside. In spring/summer there will probably be a little bit of work to do in the garden (if you fancy it) and in the colder months you will need to keep the house heated with wood-burners.
The house is situated on the edge of a rustic Bulgarian village surrounded by forests and hills. The village is beautiful with stone houses, wood fires and very friendly locals. There are many fantastic walks in the surrounding countryside straight from our doorstep.
The local town (10km) has a variety of shops and supermarkets that sell everything you may need. There is also a local fruit and vegetable market every Friday which is wonderful.
We are located in southern central Bulgaria and to explore the rest of the country from here is easy. There are a number of tourist attractions within driving distance, including the city of Plovdiv which is renowned for its beautifully preserved Roman ruins and cultural centre.
The house is a traditional, stone village house which we have recently renovated as it was uninhabitable when we bought in 3 years ago. There is 1 room which we have not yet finished and at the moment there are only the traditional outside stairs to the upper level. The bedrooms and living room is heated with wood burners (wood will be chopped already for you, although you're welcome to chop more!) and the kitchen is with a large gas heater. It is a very quiet village so may suit people who want sometime to write or paint or just wish to relax with local wine in a beautiful area of the world!
The house itself is newly renovated with all modern conveniences including fast internet connection.
