A group of 22 Germans have settled in the nearly derelict village of Odrintsi in Southeastern Bulgaria and live there "without electricity, but with 230 goats," Reuters writes in a report.

Leaving their lives behind, the German group moved in 2007 to Togo where they "built a hospital, taught orphans and offered healing and natural medicines to the locals," but later decided to buy a dozen crumbling houses in the Rhodope Mountains village which prior to their arrival had a population of five.

A 37-year-old former nurse is quoted as saying: "We just want to live a life that is as close to nature as possible."
