I totally agree Liliana,maybe I phrased it wrongly as, when we moved out here we didn't expect to get health cover direct from the country.

We were told that we could pay into the Bulgarian health system even though hubby and I were told, after 2 years of paying into it, that we weren't supposed to a...

As I said previously we DID buy a very rural property off Ebay & were lucky because it was exactly as described. I quite agree that a lot of the 'buy now' prices seem to be inflated & personally would stick to the auctions and make sure before you start that you agree, with yourself, what you want t...
