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.
