Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in Sofia, Bulgaria your home away from home

Sofia, the capital and largest city in Bulgaria, lies at the base of the Vitosha Massif Mountain, and is one of the oldest capitals in Europe, dating back to the 8th Century BC, and is rightly claimed as the cultural capital of this beautiful country. A Sofia apartment rental is perfect for all types of holiday, as the beauty of the city is combined perfectly with the delightful atmosphere, dramatic scenery and wealth of leisure options.

Things to do on holiday in Sofia, Bulgaria

Walking around the city, there are a huge number of fascinating districts, buildings and monuments to take in. The town centre is neo-classical Stalinist, surrounded by a belt of fascinating yet eerie Socialist housing, which is a real shock if you have not taken a Sofia holiday before. The true beauty of Sofia lies in the old commercial centre, where idyllic tree lined streets, exquisite balconied buildings and beautiful churches provide a beautiful backdrop to the activities of daily life, from those enjoying the open air cafes, folk music and stalls selling the finest local produce.

Sofia is a great holiday destination for family holidays, couples or mixed groups. The family attractions of the huge Sofia Zoo, founded in 1888, and home to over 240 species, Boris Gardens, Sofia Land Amusement Park and the Natural History Museum all kept holiday accommodation in Sofia doing great business.

The proximity of Vitosha makes a holiday rental in Sofia perfect for hiking holidays and skiing holidays in the winter. Vitosha has been declared a national park, and a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, and are a favourite hiking centre for many visitors to Sofia. A large number of trails and trips take place from the Golden Bridges.

The pool and sauna were great and used every night after skiing. The walk to the gondola was easy and the manager, Kristina, is very helpful. Bansko has a charming old town as well as a more modern area near the ski gondola and I would recommend it as both a ski resort and a place to experience welcoming Bulgarian hospitality.

Real warm and comfortable Chalet. Small Shop and spa in complex.
