What You'll Do

During this 6-night retreat the focus will be to immerse you in the healing power of nature. You will have total freedom to do as much or as little as you like, allowing nature to do its work.

Location Information

The retreat is located in a traditional village called Pungovtsi, nestled in the northern slopes of the Central Stara Planina Balkan mountain range. Nearby is the picturesque historical town of Tryavna, with its cobbled streets and famous for its typical revival architecture.

Here you will be transported back in time, to a quieter and simpler version of life. An area renowned for its clean air, pine forests and far-reaching views. Home to less than 20 residents, makes this ‘hidden gem’ of a village the perfect place to retreat.

Pungovtsi is located in central Bulgaria, with good access by road and nearby train and bus stations.

Transfers from Sofia and Bourgas airports can be arranged on request.

There is a regular bus service between Sofia to Tryavna.
