Make a holiday rental home, or villa in Bulgaria your home away from home

Bulgarian holidays have the opportunity to be incredibly diverse. Boasting sunny beaches on the Black Sea, lush hills and valleys in the centre, pine forest covered mountains in the southeast and many ancient cities; Bulgaria is a fascinating holiday destination. Holiday accommodation in Bulgaria can be an apartment on a beach, a chalet in a top class ski resort, or a luxury city centre apartment.

Thing to do in Bulgaria

There is such an incredible diversity in Bulgaria that any suggestions made here are merely the tip of the iceberg. The skiing in Bulgaria is sensational. Miles of pine covered mountains, with serene, unbroken snow conditions provide hours of entertainment for skiers, snowboarders and cross-country skiers.

The 378km of sunny beaches on the edge of the Black Sea are separated by fishing villages, secluded vineyards and romantic peninsulas. The beaches are safe for children, with no currents, gently sloping beaches and blue flag accreditation.

There are also some great spas to fully recuperate. The natural waters at Serdica (Sofia) and mud of the black sea have given rise to 500 spa centres in Bulgaria.

Places to holiday in Bulgaria

Again, with so many possible destinations and rental properties in Bulgaria available, this section is the briefest of summaries.

Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, is one of the oldest cities in Europe, believed to have been first inhabited in the 8th Century BC. As a result, there is some fascinating architecture, history and culture to be found here, with many buildings making it onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, including the 10th Century Boyana Church, and the gold domed Alexander Neuski Cathedral. Sofia also has a range of exhibitions and galleries; the National Gallery of Foreign Art and the National Archaeological Museum are two which stand out. Whilst in Sofia, it is recommended that you cap your visit by popping into a tavern to sample some of the folk music and traditional dancing!

Burgas and Varna two of the largest cities in Bulgaria, and are both situated on the Black Sea Coast. During the summer, they are blessed with around 11 hours a day for sunbathing, as there is little breeze, and temperatures remain high. Varna is an ancient city too, and there are fine examples of ancient, medieval, renaissance and modern architecture all integrated into the city seamlessly.

Plovdiv, the fourth large city in Bulgaria is rich in folklore, and the magnificently decorated churches are awe-inspiring.

Bulgarian Weather

Bulgaria's climate is split into four distinct seasons. The winters are cold, with average temperatures for January hovering around the 0°C mark. The summers are obviously much warmer, allowing for beach holidays. The temperatures are less than the stifling heat of the Mediterranean, rarely breaking 30°C, so are perfect if you d not like it too hot!

Travel to Bulgaria

Cheap flights to Bulgaria are available all year round. There are now four international airports, one in each of the major cities, Sofia (SOF), Bourgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR), and Plovdiv (PDV)

                                                                                                  Sveti Vlas is beautiful location and is an ideal area for a family holiday. We are a family with two young children and they had a great holiday. The apartment is a great size with two good sized bedrooms, two shower rooms, two balconies overlooking the pools getting the evening sunshine and a good sized kitchen diner. We purchased wifi from the complex which worked really well and was accessible at the apartment, pools, beach and even along the marina via the different hotspots. We stayed for two weeks and opted to pay for a linen change after week one which was a good choice. The apartment had buckets and spades and other toys for the children to use, along with a cool bag to bring drinks to the beach. The apartment was equipped with washing machine, kettle, coffee machine, toaster and microwave along with the two hob cooker and oven. The swimming pool was a very short walk from the apartment (which is on the first floor -14 steps only!) and there was never a shortage of sun loungers. The beach was a couple of minutes stroll and offered a free beach area or you can hire the sunlouger and umbrella for the day. The marina offers a nice evening walk, some very nice restaurants, Casino and a steady stream of Ferraris, Bentleys, Porches etc. The town centre offers the usual holiday shops and plenty of restaurants to chose from. Old Nessebar is a must as a day trip, we took the water taxi from the marina. It offers antique shops, historical sites and excellent seafood restaurants. Sunny beach is a short taxi or very cheap bus ride away and is buzzing with nightlife. Although it wasn't ideal for walking around with young children, I can see how this could be appealing to young couples etc. Therefore this location offers you the best of both worlds, quiet and relaxing and/or nightlife. Heather was always on hand to answer any questions I had before going on holiday and gave us peace of mind when choosing here.

The guys who manage it there were really helpful and gave us some great local information. The Villa is very close to a wonderful beach and a short drive from Sozopol town (10 Mins). Best restaurant by far was the Veranda Restaurant looking over the very left hand side of the beach in Sozopol new town ( Left as you look out to sea.) We would definitely recommend this villa and the area although it is a quiet picturesque local resort.
