I had a great experience at Rayne’s place.
You should definitely come if you’re in search for a calm isolated place to get in touch with nature and permaculture.
Connection to other towns won’t be an easy task, but you’ll be able to disconnect from society easily while there. Mainly you’ll be able to have conversations with Rayne, which can teach much about her field of knowledge. Also you’ll have 2 super friendly dogs that will tag alone with you wherever you go for a walk or run to make you company. I recommend this experience, but don’t hesitate to ask me for details 😃 thanks Rayne!

Rayne was a very welcoming and knowledgeable host (as were her dogs), and we felt at home during our visit. She helped us immerse ourselves within the local culture and people, and we were lucky enough to be given opportunities not often available to tourists. We learnt a number of various skills and would recommend this host to anyone looking to learn more about permaculture and Bulgaria itself.

Rayne welcomed us with open arms, providing us with 3 delicious meals a day, so encouraging us to help ourselves to the kitchen whenever we wished.
We gained about permaculture and sustainability. Rayne was an excellent teacher, we learnt a variety of practical skills, including using a chainsaw, felling trees, harvesting seeds, creating dead hedges, transplanting trees etc.
Rayne immersed us in local culture, offering experiences with Kirilovo clothing, Kukeri masks, and a visit to a village with healing stones.
Rayne's place offers a unique blend of learning, culture, and furry friends.

Nuestra experiencia con Rayne fue complicada. Al principio la convivencia fue buena, pero a los pocos días sentimos un mal trato de parte de Rayne. Nosotros nunca fuimos groseros con ella y aún así nos dio un trato muy diferente después de un malentendido respecto a un trabajo.
El trabajo era Justo y como se había acordado pero nos sorprendió que después de trabajar 5 horas solo nos diera de comer una sandía. Rayne nos pidió que nos fuéramos y así lo hicimos ya que nos sentíamos incómodos con el trato de parte de ella. También. Nos sorprendió que no nos diera opciones de cómo irnos del pueblo

Nuestra estancia con Rayne fue complicada. Los primeros 2 días iban bien, estábamos emocionados por trabajar en nuestro primer voluntariado. Después de esto hubo un malentendido respecto al trabajo que debíamos hacer y a partir de eso sentimos un trato distinto de parte de Rayne lo cual nos hizo sentir incómodos. Nosotros en ningún momento le faltamos al respeto o fuimos groseros con ella, y después del malentendido nos pidió que nos fuéramos. El trabajo y horario de trabajo eran flexibles y justas como se habían acordado, pero una sandia no compensa las 6 horas de trabajo del día…
