Autumn colours of Geshaview

The carefully preserved trees around the Geshaview village in Bulgaria are producing a wonderful display of autumn golden browns and ochres.
The pictures, taken by Yana Dimitrova, show that as the village matures and the trees grow you really will be 'living embraced by nature'.

The Courtyard reveals its looks!

Although still under construction, the scaffolding around the Geshaview Courtyard is gradually being removed and it is revealing just how stunning it will look. 
The stonemasons have done an amazing job of combining a traditional Bulgarian style building with modern construction techniques. 
Although the picture shows only a small section of the Courtyard you can begin to get a feel of how impressive it will be when finished.

November Newsletter

Firstly, I must apologise for not posting the September and October issues of the Geshaview newsletters.
These can be found on our website, along with all the other back issues, at:
In the November issue you will find articles on how the lighting of the village at night might look and pictures of the first houses to be fully furnished. 
The newsletters are available to view as PDFs or as 'e-books'. Please click on the link above to view the newsletter.

Landscaping at Geshaview

After 3 years of careful and deliberate protection of all of the ground, trees and fauna on the village site we have finally started to create the ‘outdoor decoration’ of the village. 
 The levelling of the top soil and the sowing of grass seeds (1,000kg and 7 different varieties) is giving the village a green carpet that blends the houses to their surroundings. 
Geshaview is beginning to to look less like a building site and more like the tranquil, eco-friendly village envisaged from the start.
