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.

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.

It was a clean, well equipped apartment which was both spacious and comfortable. It was well located to bars restaurants and amenities. I would be happy to stay here again if I return to Bansko

On site staff were very helpful in arranging bookings and transport. Excellent customer service. The door to door airport transfers were very good too and flexible, as we were delayed an hour on the way out. Having 2 bathrooms was a real bonus in a 2 bedroomed apartment.
