We are creating an exciting new Wargaming experience here in Northern Bulgaria set in 2 acres of landscaped gardens in the grounds of a 200 year old Bulgarian manor house.  

We are an English run business based in Northern Bulgaria with a passion and a wealth of knowledge of the Napoleonic wars.

 We are ideally placed to cater for wargamers from all over Europe and welcome guests from continents all over the world to come and experience this unique venue.  

The wargames retreat will have a playing surface of 42ft x 15ft, which is considered the largest in Europe and is available for all wargaming enthusiasts. With the use of authentic hand painted military figures, replicated down to the finest detail, following vast research of each regiments details. The walls of the retreat will be decorated with military memorabilia and pictures of famous battle scenes from the Napoleonic era. There will be a sophisticated sound system in place, orchestrating actual battle sounds to create an atmosphere that will make you feel you are actually part of the battle. The wargames holiday retreat will offer to cater for small groups 2 to 4 players to make the experience more personal and to larger groups up to 15 people. Most Battles will be played from the Napoleonic era and we will be able to cater for special requests and events for groups and individuals. We offer our wargamers not only a unique experience to play on one of Europe's largest wargaming areas but also we offer all guests accommodation on an all inclusive basis, serving Bulgarian and English traditional cuisine drinks and alcohol with full use of all facilities.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges we see in this project are timing of the build, this we see as a challenge but have project managed a schedule to deal with this.
We have previously managed renovations in the UK, so this should run fairly smoothly.
We have fully researched building regulations and specifications here in Bulgaria, to assist with all stages of this build.
Another challenge we have come across is the language barrier, of which we have taken Bulgarian lessons recently to improve our communication skills.
