We are looking to raise 10,000 $ to buy furniture for our holiday B&B guest houses. Using Indiegogo we hope to convert four 150 years old houses to become eco-tourism hot spot destination. By pledging small donations we will reward all investors with FREE ACCOMMODATION at the new guest houses and our apartments in Sofia, which we rent out via Airbnb. We will give you vouchers, which can be used in 2 years time! ... For larger donations we will organize unforgettable trips and give discount cards.

We are renovating four 150 years old houses in the beautiful village Golets in the Old Balkan Mountain Chain Stara Planina - Bulgaria. When we bought them - we decided to renovate them and turn them into guest house complex offering not only shelter, but also lots of outdoor activities and encouraging the eco-friendly outdoor lifestyle in the nature. In Golets complex we will grow our own 100% organic vegetables & fruits; buy our dairy products, wine, fish etc. from the local community and be as close to the nature as possible. All our guests will have the possibility to taste the local cuisine and use 100 % organic products during their stay. 

The complex has 4 lovely houses, awesome garden, 2 barbecues, sauna, steam-bath, river, fish pond, bridge, playground, open-air cinema, rose garden, fruit&vegetable garden, snow park etc.

Golets houses are 90% ready. But we need your help for the rest 10%. And being more specific we still need to buy: kitchen equipment, 2 washing-machines, 2 ovens, air-conditioners, bicycles and if we are left more money we would invest in equipment for the outdoor activities of our guests.

Because this is not our first project related to hospitality as we rent out flats in Sofia - we think that the best we could offer in return of your help is a holiday and free stay in Golets & Sofia! 

Help us to finish up the complex and revive this beautiful Balkan area! 

Golets is about 1 hour and 30 min drive from Sofia. The road to Golets comes out from the highway that goes to the sea-side city Varna. The area has had an intense and diverse cultural life. That is why it is an interesting place to visit. The Stara planina mountain is especially beautiful in the Teteven area, where is Golets. Lovech, Gabrovo and Veliko Tarnovo are interesing towns close by.

                                

House 1 is The Snowdrop house whose front side is facing the street called The Snowdrop Str. (in Bulgarian Kokiche). House 2 is The Walnut/The riverside house close to the river between two lovely walnut trees. From the bedrooms of the walnut house you have fantastic views and the beautiful sound of the river. The other two houses - House 3 and House 4 are attached houses and they are up on a hill offering spectacular views, therefore they are called the Panorama Houses. THE PLANS.

After an year and a half we have almost finished with the construction works and the reconstruction of the houses. We went slightly over budget and to speed up the finishing of the project and also as a marketing tool we thought that IndieGoGo campaign will be the best thing to do. In return of your help we would love to have you as our guests in some of our Sofia accomodations and of course in the Golets Complex.

Golets is close by to several beautiful historical towns - Lovech, GabrovoTroyan, Teteven and Veliko Tarnovo. There are spectacular monasteries in the area, which can be visited - Glozhene Monastery and Troyan Monastery. There are plenty of waterfalls and we even have our own private Golets waterfall, which is a must-visit if you come to Golets.



                          

The Snowdrop house (house 1) is really cozy and beautiful. If you are staying in house 1 or house 2 - it is where we will be meeting you at the first place. At the Ground floor of the Snowdrop house we will have a Cafe/Gallery - Reception facing the street.

The house can host 4-6 people. The bathroom is really spacious and beautiful, there is a steam-bath as well.

                          



                        

The Riverside/ The walnut House (house2) is marvelous. It has two fantastic bedrooms with the most interesting walls. We have preserved the original 150 years old hedge and the beams-columns. Each bedroom has spacious bathroom. On the ground floor the house has a restaurant/kitchen. If you prefer to cook yourself you can use everything inside. In case you would like to have something special prepared by our chef - you can be sure it will taste fantastic. The dinning-area on the Ground floor has amazing view to the garden with lots of roses in front of the windows. There is also a fire-place, which will keep you warm in the cold winter days. The river is just behind the house. Next to the house is also the well and the bridge from where you could go finishing. The house can host 4-6 people.

                        

                        


                      

The Panorama Houses (House 3&4) are located on the other side of the river up on the hill. They are called so, because they have this beautiful views towards the mountain. Next to the house is the barbecue, which is also fantastic place to dine with beautiful panorama. The house has also an office/reception. On the ground floor is the kitchen and the dinning-area. There is also a bathroom with sauna and shower. In the winter you can have a great fun in the snowy garden and get in the sauna. On the first floor are two apartments with bedrooms and living rooms. The house can host 8-10 people.

We really like nature and the sustainable way of living. In Golets complex we will try to be as eco-friendly as possible. This project is not only a construction project, but hopefully it will become also famous eco-tourism spot. We will offer only organic local products and cuisine. Stimulate the outdoor activities and the healthy way of living. We have two huge water tanks that will filter and purify the water that we will use. We will reuse the water to water the plants in the garden.

The industrialization has made villages like Golets underpopulated. We hope that our complex will make an impact on the village of Golets and the whole Balkan area. Bringing more people there and boost the local economy. Stara planina is not a touristy spot, but it is definitely a beautiful place to visit. The project is actually part of an European Union Program for Development of Rural Areas, which is a whole strategy of the EU to revive the villages and the provincial towns. 

We love the nature and saw great potential in the area. Stara Planina is lovely mountain and it is not as commercially developed as other mountain regions in Bulgaria. Golets is situated between 3 historical cities - LovechTroyan and Gabrovo. Close to Golets you can find many interesting sites to visit. Help us revive this beautiful area!


We have invested a lot in the complex, but we went slightly over-budget so we need some resources to finish the complex. Furniture is needed to be bought, some small finishing works on the inside and the outdoor equipment for our guests. 

If we reach the 10 000 $ goal - we will buy kitchen equipment, TVs, air-conditioners and sauna.

If we reach 20 000 $ - we will buy bicycles, trampoline, bows, crossbow, mountain board, build the playground, poker table, tennis table and other outdoor sport equipment.

If we reach 30 000 $ - we will make the open-air cinema and a snowpark on the nearby hill.

If we reach 40 000 $ - we will make a marketing campaign with real movie about Golets, better photos and improve the web-site.

If we reach 50 000 $ - we will jump happily and make an eco-path to the Golets waterfall and improve the area around it.

The best thing that we could offer to you in return of your help is a stay in Sofia & Golets. We hope that you will enjoy the perks we have come up with. If you want to have something different like an event or whatever else - let us know and you can use the custom-made voucher.
