LUXURY 3 BED VILLA (SLEEPS 6-8), OWN POOL, A/C, GARDEN, VILLAGE LOCATION, BY SEA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Varna - Villa Korona

Self catering, 3 bedrooms plus sofa bed in lounge, family freindly, village shop

Constructed and renovated (2007) substantial detached villa. Set in secluded, well stocked, walled gardens with outstanding summer kitchen, extensive terraced areas and 8m x 4m lit swimming pool. Fully self catering and well equipped. This is a quiet getaway but only a few minutes drive from a marina development and beach (Balchik), 2 golf courses, the extensive beach resort of Albena, the city buzz of Varna or natural headland (Cape Kaliakra). This is a luxury getaway, refurbished to a modern, high and comfortable standard. Ideal for families, friends or that romantic break.

The property is located in a quiet, quaint farming village with 2 shops . It has no immediate neighbour and is not overlooked. The house has a very large garden area with lots of terraces, areas and space.

This is a rural retreat, only a short drive from activities and attractions of the Black Sea coast and a good base to explore from. The Danube and Istanbul are both within 1/2 a days drive for excursions

Balchik and Albena: Balchik (15 minutes) - marina resort and small beach, great friendly restaurants, boat trips, small museum, shopping, Queen Maries Summer Palace and Gardens (a must!). There is a new Marina development and this lovely town, set into the side of the cliffs, is set to tastefully expand. There are 2 golf courses located on the edge of the town (approximately 10/15 minutes from the villa).

Albena (25 minutes) - full beach resort, fantastic beach, watersports, restaurants, horse riding, football, go karts, bowling, cinema, spa(s), massage and shopping. Albena is a purpose built resort with excellent clean and maintained beaches. Albena offers a busy bar/ restaurant scene but it is not overdone. The Bulgarians have been careful to control building and expansion to protect the feel of the area. There is also access to a small nature reserve. All this northern coastline has safe sandy beaches, clean sea waters and plenty to see and do.

Varna: Varna (40 minutes) - Bulgaria's 3rd city, vibrant cafe society, lots of shopping, beach, aquarium, dolphin show, parks, fantastic museums and art galleries. This is a great city to visit, it has a fascinating history and a rich cultural heritage. There are attractions and interests for all ages and you could visit for a whole week and still not see everything! Not as 'pretty' as other European cities but the Bulgarians have a friendly and youthful outlook which makes it a safe and comfortable place to explore (and get lost!)

Natural and Historic Attractions: Cape Kaliakra (35 mins)- historic headland and park. Roman ruins and defences, dolphin and whale viewings, outstanding natural beauty. This is one of many natural or historic attractions within 45 minutes drive of the villa. Other attractions to look out in the region for are the 'stone forest', roman museums, ancient cave monastery. There are also nature reserves with protected bird species and a wide mix of flora and fauna.

Bulgaria is famous for its roses and its honey.....the Valley of the Roses is 1/2 a days drive from the house and is a really good trip in the summer you get to see some amazing scenery and old villages. It is also famous for its sunflowers, grown on a vast scale for the oil . You will see massive fields full of flowers.

Pottery, wood carvings, wool and leather goods are also very popular.

Great holiday

  • 4 out of 5
We loved this place. The villa was spacious and the pool and barbeque area were fab. There was a much needed welcome pack upon our arrival and once you realise that you are within a 20minute drive to an excellent beach (Balchik) and 15mins to the nearest 'Penny market' supermarket, you appreciate the tranquillity and seclusion of this villa. Kevin (owner) and Katya (based locally) were both very helpful and more than prepared to answer/resolve any queries we had. The locals were friendly and the wildlife, sunflower fields and copious amounts of watermelon sellers, all made for a very memorable holiday. We would recommended this villa and Bulgaria without hesitation. The great weather, cheap cost of living and beautiful countryside enabled us to fall in love with this country. If it helps, my son recorded a video on youtube... Lewiscuff Bulgaria 2014.

Lovely villa with gorgeous gardens & pool

Cannot vault this villa - lovely and clean with excellent customer service. Villagers were very friendly and the two local shops in the village sold everything you would need until you were able to get to a supermarket. Pool was wonderful and was maintained on a regular basis by an extremely friendly gardener/maintenance man. You would definitely need a car whilst holidaying at this villa but the two nearby towns of Dobrich and Balchich had everything you would need such as parking, good restaurants, markets and supermarkets. Would definitely recommend this villa for someone looking for a lovely relaxing holiday in the sunshine and to also experience the real Bulgaria rather than just the tourist areas.

Lovely Bulgaria

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was lovely and exactly as per the website. Welcome pack was very welcome, and meant we were able to settle in for the evening after the travel,a nd find the supermarket the next day. Village is small and rural but very friendly and close to airport, beaches/resorts/supermarkets etc.

Would recommend a hire car for trips to supermarket and nearby resorts - Balchik (traditional coastal town with restaurants/bars/shops), Albena (resort town with gorgeous beaches, lots of hotels, restaurants,shops and bars), Varna etc. We also took an overnight trip to Nesebar which I would highly recommend. It was very beautiful,and is a world heritage site.

The weather was glorious, and pool helped us to cool down after lots of sunbathing on the very sturdy loungers. We enjoyed many barbecues in the well equipped, well-stocked, outdoor kitchen. Bulgaria definitely surpassed my expectations, and I would heartily recommend this holiday to anyone.

10 days in July 2012 - Norwegian family of 4.

The house is exactly as described. Popgrigorovo is a very small, nice and quiet village surrounded with fields of sweetcorn, melons and sunflowers and not to forget nice people. It is located close to Dobrich, a town not visited by many tourists. However it is very close also to Balchik which is much more crowded with tourists. Pick your choice. We preferred both.
You will find nice and good restaurants both places. It is a bit more expensive in the tourists areas. However, as used to Norwegian price level, we found the prices in Bulgaria extremely cheap. Anywere!
You will benefit with a rental car if you choose to stay in Popgrigorov, but you will probably also survive if you choose not to. There are buses and taxies in the area, but the local shops (2) have very limited range.
My family, (2 kids -10 and 13 yr), visited the beaches close to Balchik, went shopping in Dobrich and Varna and visited Aquapark in Varna. We preferred both to visit local restaurants and also cook meal in the nice bbq house by the villa.

A garderner took care of the property during our stay and everything related to our stay was well organized.

We can recommend a stay in this nice villa if you are looking for a quiet place not far from central areas. Do not expect to meet other tourist in PopGrigorovo, and do not expect other languages than Bulgarian;)

Amazing Stay

  • 5 out of 5
As a first time visitor to Bulgaria my experience at the Villa Korona was astounding. From the villa itself with its spacious well maintained grounds with the luxury of pool and outdoor living area - providing plenty of of space to laze and play.
The house is welcoming and homely, finished to a high standard providing every facility one could ask for to feel truly at home (and the welcome pack was most welcome for a weary traveller arriving late in the evening). The villa is enclosed to give you all the privacy to feel comfortable but not so isolated as to not receive a warm greeting or wave from the friendly locals when out and about on our travels.
Getting out and about is a must too. I had a packed week and barely got to sample some of the attractions... The marina and restaurants of Balchik, the ruins and sights of Cape Kaliakra, beaches of Albena and a overnight stay (very affordable accommodation) at the beautiful Nesebar with its collection of antique churches and huddled cobbled streets and lanes make it well worth stepping onto the tourist trail.
With so much to see and do (or not if you'd rather relax by the pool!) with fantastic fresh local food at very reasonable prices (a disservice to call it cheap) either prepared for you or enjoyed in the house I would be more than happy to come back to enjoy more of what this wonderful destination has to offer.

Great Place to Enjoy

  • 5 out of 5
We (family with a 10 year old boy) found Villa Korona in perfect condition, just ready for relaxing holidays, embedded in the calm village of Popgrigorovo with a garden/pool offering great privacy. In app. 30 minute driving distance we enjoyed clean and nice black sea beaches, like Albena, Lighthouse beach and Balchik which is a friendly place with excellent restaurants. Kevin and his local staff were greatly supporting us from the preparation of the travel to arrval at the airport and during our stay for any request. We spent three fantastic weeks there and can absolutely recommend this property.
