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.

Places to visit on holiday in Sozopol in Bulgaria

The city of Bourgas (Burgas) has a huge amount to see and do. Burgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria, and is filled with museums, galleries and attractions of the highest quality. Folklore is particularly rich here, much of which is explained in the International Folklore Festival in Bourgas. The saltwater lagoons and national parks that surround the city are also well worth exploration on foot.

Weather in Sozopol, Bulgaria

Daily peak temperatures can be expected in the mid 30’s (˚C) with wonderful regularity between the end of May and beginning of September.

A real alternative to a package at Sunny Beach

4 of 5
Overall your place has a lovely rustic appeal and offers great value for a relaxed stay. I certainly recommend it to others. We appreciated the starter kit of food and drink. The bedrooms are great and it fantastic that four can be comfortably accommodated at such a price. You will probably need a hire car to get the most of the local area. Fortunately driving in Bulgaria is straightforward and vehicles are cheap to rent. It is a great base to explore the local region, with several great beaches pretty close. The nearest large town, Bourgas, is largely overlooked by tourists from Western Europe, which is amazing as it is a fantastic town. If you want a real alternative to a cheap package deal at Sunny Beach, this is it.

Great Vacation, aReal Home Away from Home!

4 of 5
The 7 of us truly enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything was great! The pool was amazing to come home to, the kitchen was perfect for us and the rooms were all good also. Its about a 15 min drive into Sozopol, which was convenient and also a short drive to a few different beaches in the area. It was the perfect place for us to spend a week in the summertime. The road is a little bumpy and the ocassional whiff of the neighbors Cattle can be a tad annoying as well as the roosters. I recommend Sonja gets a fan for each room also. But, we still would rent here again and recommend to ours friends. We all had a great time here! The outdoor BBQ area and poolside were awesome! Overall, this is a great vacation rental for the price and the space. Its a perfect place for a group of friends or family to enjoy a vacation together and still have personal space. The number of bathrooms and bedroom are a huge bonus. Sonja's dad was great and check in and out were smooth. we loved it here!
