Working with time differences? just let the chef know if your schedule clashes with meal times and we will bring lunch to you or save you a plate.

With a community schedule including yoga, meditation classes and often other spiritual and healing practices there is always something you can join. You will join us for all plant based community meals taking away those precious hours of cooking and shopping allowing you more time to relax and join practices. You can also opt for a more independent option with the BalkanNomads self catering option as above.

Our first summer was an amazing mixture of location independent and freelance nomads along with travellers and volunteers. A big thank you to Jorin @ Economadia, Floasis who have been actively part of our first season. In our second season we were joined by an inspiring number of solo female digital nomad guests see our blog for more info.

If climbing is your thing, then you won’t have to travel too far there are a number of natural sites around the area and caving spots. Just 35 minutes north takes you to the climbing area around Veliko Tarnovo which is well rated with climbers.

Great crag with grades from 4-5a to 7b. The crag is in the sun and best climbed before it gets hot. Best time is in April-May and September-October. Some protections are with expansion bolts but most of them with chemical resin rings.
