A Unique Stay!
Welcome to life life in rustic rural Bulgaria, we wanted to create an authentic experience that was welcoming and diverse. So we have blended sustainable ethos and the Bulgarian mountain way of life, that connects you to the land and mountains to create a place where you can relax and enjoy time with friends and family, find your own life work balance with the support of our daily self practices or join in with our community life and become part of the family.
We offer both fully inclusive (Community Guest), Digital Nomad (Long Stays) and self catering options in the RisingSoul Lodge. The property is a traditional Bulgarian Village House restored with the charm of the cosy homely Irish country cottage, that I grew up in. Our guests say “its a place that takes you back to childhood memories and immerses you in nature”.
In the winter we close the volunteers house and old stable accomodation so we are only able to accept community friends. When we winter here we live as a family style community, in the main lodge so you can expect a busy atmosphere with puppies, log fires, retro CD’s and videos, books and board games, vinyl records, occasional nights of red wine and Netflix around the fire.
In the Summer its time for outdoor dining and chill out, fairy lights veggie BBQs and Bulgarian & Vegan/Veggie cooking workshops. We spend evenings around the camp fire as a community and have daily well being and spiritual practices in the meditation room and Yoga Barn, just check our daily schedule. In between retreats and group bookings, we function as a international community, with people dropping in from all over the world to rest or rejuvenate, work remotely, retreat or volunteer in nature. Its the perfect place to build your own self practices many of our volunteers share skills and teachings with our international nomads and of course as part of a rural Balkan community its a great place to soak up some local culture.
All our packages are available from May until October for out of season stays please get in touch so as we can best help you with your enquire. In the Summer you can stay at the lodge as a self catering guest, rent the whole lodge for a group gathering or private use, or stay fully inclusive eating community meals with us as a community guest.
