/ FS -3 bed house in the Vratsa climbing region, BG
We are selling our 3 bedroom (sleeps 5), countryside house with walled garden (plus Volvo car) located in the Vratsa region of Bulgaria, an upcoming, cheap place to live and climb to your heart's content.
We thought about advertising 'generally' but seeing as there has been a very keen influx of climbers stay with us in our Airbnb to explore the area's almost limitless climbing, we thought it better to advertise on here.
The Vratsa region has a very good guidebook (which we'll throw in gratis!) of local routes and a great website: www.climbingguidebg.com/cdb.php?f=placeinfo&idPlace=1&lang=en
We made a sale website that we hope provides as much info as possible -

Life in Bulgaria is a slow, simple one and is very important to understand what it is like living in Bulgaria from one season to another.
Summers can reach 40c, winters -25c so the climbing is great as is the skiing/snowshoeing.
It's hard to find a perfect Bulgarian house, made of modern materials by expert tradesmen. They used to build their houses with local materials, piece by piece whenever they could afford it.
With that in mind, note that this is a brick house, made locally and uses cob mortar.
It is fully connected to the water and electricity supply but sewerage in the villages is via individual soak-aways so we are always aware of what chemicals we use, choosing natural products as often as possible.
A Bulgarian house will keep you learning, it's a living breathing house (literally), during the winter time you will need to be smart, planning food supplies if the snow arrives and keeping wood stocked for use in the burners.
A interest and ability in DIY will be useful for any prospective buyer.
The selling process is also different to the UK, we arrived on a 2 week road trip and owned after just 2 weeks but more information on that can be shared to any interested parties.
Any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask.
Interested in the above, but need further details. Have you got a contact number etc.
We have a contact form and number on our sale website, but I have also emailed you directly.
Hi. It might just be me but the website doesn't appear to work(?)
Following this week's avalanche fatalities on Ben Nevis, mountain safety bodies have put out a reminder to walkers, climbers and skiers that enthusiasm should always be matched by caution.
