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

Sozopol is a beautiful beach resort town on a rocky peninsula that juts out into the warm waters of the Black Sea in Bulgaria. Sozopol is a resort for the independent traveller, free from the crowds of tourists associated with mass tourism for much of the year, yet filled with facilities and attractions of the highest quality. Taking a self catering villa in Sozopol is the perfect way to experience the best of Bulgarian beach holidays.

Things to do in Sozopol in Bulgaria

There are a fantastic range of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs in Sozopol, serving everything from traditional cuisine to international dishes, but all at prices much cheaper than many international resorts. Just touring the old town, carving your path through the wooden houses and ancient cobbled streets is a pleasure, especially when you stop at a timeless little café and indulge in a plate of midi, (locally raised mussels) which are an absolute delicacy. The churches of The Holy Virgin and St Zosim cannot be missed and there are a great range of galleries and museums to explore.

However, the beaches are of huge appeal to visitors. There are two beaches in Sozopol, lined with golden sands and perfect for both lazy days stretched out in the sun and for more active breaks, swimming, sailing and kayaking. A little to the south of Sozopol’s beaches is Dyuni Beach, an upmarket beach backed by a stunning area of marshland known as the Arkutino Swamp, where floating lilies decorate the water, and wildlife thrives.

Touring the coastline, whether on foot or from the sea by kayak, small boat or ‘boat taxi’, is a wonderful experience, especially if you head southwards towards the fjord like bays and cliffs of the Bulgarian coast. There are some amazing views to see, especially from some of the dramatic sea caves found among the bays and inlets.

It was exactly as described on the website and came up to all expectations. It was extremely well equipped and had excellent facilities. The garden was also spacious with large pool, plenty of garden furniture, tennis court and barbecue. The staff were wonderful and looked after us very well. The owner was also very helpful. Thank you from me and my family for a wonderful holiday!

A large number of Bulgarians come to Sozopol along with Russians, Germans and Scandinavians. The apartment is on the top floor with excellant views from both balconies. There was plenty of room and the amenities were very good with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. There was only one occasion when all the sunbeds were in use by the pool but most of the time there were plenty available. There is a small shop right beside the apartments which has all basics and a further two supermarkets further along the road. The centre of the new town is a 30 minute walk away with the old town a further 15 minutes away. We really enjoyed walking around the old town after our evening meal and there was entertainment in the outdoor theatre most evenings. There are plenty of shops, market stalls and fantastic restaurants where you can eat really cheaply. The standard of food was excellant and our favourite was Urani Bistro although a bit difficult to find it is worth it. We would certainly recommend both the apartment and Sozopol and we had a lovely relaxing holiday.
