We are an English couple living in the South of England on a small farm. We love the countryside and first visited Bulgaria in 2004 where we fell in love with the area surrounding Cape Kaliakra. We were entranced with the countryside and the simple way of life of the locals and farmers. We first bought a lovely old Bulgarian house in a village that we renovated and now consider our second home. We then purchased Villa Rosa in the lovely village of Balgarevo and we have had many great people staying there including families, couples and friends abd bird watchers. We hope to be able to go on holidaying in Bulgaria for many years to come and to continue to meet up with the friends that we have made over the years.
Jacqueline Seaton purchased this villa in 2006
Villa Rosa was built about 2005 and we thought it would be ideal for holidaymakers and near our own holiday home so it was the ideal choice for us not only for holidaymakers but for our families as well. We have made friends here in Balgarevo as well and we love Kavarna town. When shopping all the shopkeepers remember us and are almost like old friends.
Villa Rosa is such a lovely house and as soon as we saw it's spacious open plan design, little balconies and garden pool surrounded by a patio and lawns we knew it would be the perfect place for visitors to just chill out and it is only a 6 minute drive to the sea. The village is so typical of many of the villages in the area with old stone cottages and friendly locals.
Thanks Jackie for a great holiday! The villa is just as it looks on the website. Light and airy with plenty of room. The pool is was loved by all in the hot weather. Jackie is full of advise being very quick to reply to the many emails I kept firing at her! The homecare company were very helpful just a phone call away when needed, they spoke very good English and were able to help with Hire cars, taxis etc. the pool was checked daily to ensure it was clean. The air con in the bedroom's made sleeping very easy during the hot nights. A great family villa close to good beaches and plenty to do for family days out within an hours drive. Thanks again Jackie for a cracking holiday!
Our holiday was great ! The villa is very nice - the description was 100% true. Villa Rosa is comfortable, holiday home. The pool is perfect for children (although it's better for bigger children - 7-8 years' old). The garden is well maintained and outdoor grill and patio is just perfect to eat and spend time with whole family.
Everyone who needs silent and tranquil surroundings will be happy there. This is excellent location - close to very nice beach ( Bolata Beach) which is not crowded and has "tawern" where you can eat fresh and cheap moules :)
Also Cape Kaliakra is the "must see" place. People are friendly so you feel welcom and in Kavarna you will find everything you need.
I have to admitt that the Owner - Jacqueline Seaton - is one of the bests I had pleasure to contact with. I travel a lot with my family and we usually rent villas so we do come across different owners and I am telling you - she is the best.
Splendid, fast and easy contact. She is very helpful and she looks after her hirers.
We are very, very happy that we were able to spent our holiday in villa Rosa and that we could saw how beautiful Bulgaria is. Thank you very much and best regards :-)
Villa Rosa is lovely - very well laid out with nice sized rooms, it was very clean and the gardens and pool were exceptionally well maintained, with frequent attention (although unobtrusive).
The village of Balgarevo is ideal, if you want to stay in the non touristy part of Bulgaria. There are several restaurants nearby and as we hired a car (definitely recommended, so you can explore the area!), we could easily go into Kavarna for dinner - lots of choices there!
The owner, Jackie, was extremely helpful throughout and even popped in to see us while we were there.
This is a wonderful location in a beautiful country and you don't need a fortune to enjoy it fully, everything is very reasonably priced.
Thank you - we all enjoyed our holiday tremendously.
Four of us stayed here for a week in late April 2013. We used it as a base to explore and birdwatch the beautiful coastline of North East Bulgaria. The Villa was spacious, modern, comfortable and very well equipped. Also the Wi-Fi was a real bonus. It was great to return after a full days birding and relax in the garden with a cold beer at dusk listening to Scops Owls and nightingales. We spent a lot of time at Cape Kaliakra, only a 5 minute drive away. Spectacular in itself for the views, dolphins and porpoises but the birding here was absolutely superb as it was a magnet for migrating birds. (Other holiday activities are available!)
I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return soon myself.
What a wonderful villa and great location. We have just returned home after a relaxing week at Villa Rosa. We have two young children who loved the pool and took my parents with us; who are in their late sixties and thoroughly enjoyed themselves taking long walks exploring the village, where you were made to feel welcome by the locals.
The property itself is a dream to stay in, being well maintained and having all you need for a relaxing holiday for all the family. This villa would suit families of young children and people in the older age bracket, who likes to have peace and quite as well as culture and seeing the traditional side of Bulgaria.
Jackie was great in sorting out transport from the airport in Varna to Villa Rosa for us all as we did not want to hire a car during this trip. My only recommendation would be to hire a car for a few days so that you can see more of the beautiful area, as it is a bit too far to walk to the local beach with two young children; we will do so next time.
We have all returned back from our holiday thoroughly refreshed and planning our holiday for next year to Villa Rosa. Thank you Jackie and Kieron for sharing your villa with us all.
The villa is beautiful, well kept and very comfortable! The pool and garden were great and felt very peaceful and private.
The villa is in a gorgeous village and close to a lovely beach, very suitable for little children to play and swim at. The nearest 'big' town - Kavarna has everything you need in the way of shops and restaurants, and also has a lovely beach.
We had everything we needed despite the party including 2 teenagers and a baby!
Booking, arranging, deposit refund and the management in general was easy and organised !
Would highly recommend !
