Interaction with guests
We are only next door so if you need anything, we are available. Guests can join in activities such as collecting eggs from the hens; feeding the animals; taking the goats to pasture; and yoghurt and cheese making. There are also opportunities to meet local people through our organised activities such as a ride on a horse and cart; foraging; an evening of Bulgarian music; and learning to cook a Bulgarian meal. Kids love it here - there is so much freedom for them to play! We have a large box of games and art materials and there is endless fun to be had on the swinging beds, hammock and with the animals.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Palamartsa is a traditional village, off the beaten track, where you will experience Bulgarian rural life. You can visit the cultural display in the centre or just wander around the village and be greeted by friendly locals who often want to show off their gardens in summer time. The village is surrounded by open countryside and there are lots of places for walking. We have created a number of self guided walks for our visitors and provide maps. We also have a weekly group walk on Saturday mornings and guests are welcome to join. There is a fishing lake and a Roman fortified archaeological site 5 km away. In summer there is an outdoor public pool about 7km away, beautifully located among the hills. Popovo is our nearest town, 8 km away. It has a daily fruit and veg ma... more

There are several buses to Popovo, the nearest town, 8km away. Popovo also has a train station. We also have several adult bikes available to borrow.
