Make a holiday rental house or property in Varna, Bulgaria your home away from home

Varna is the third largest city in Bulgaria and the country’s summer capital, turning into a bustling seaside resort in the summer, with glorious beaches along the coast of Black Sea. The ancient monuments which adorn the tree lined boulevards of the city mingle perfectly with medieval, renaissance and modern architecture. Varna properties probably don’t spring immediately to mind when you think of beach holidays, but summer holidays to Varna really do rival many of the more famous Mediterranean resorts, and the Varna holiday properties really do match up to the luxury of those on the Mediterranean.

Things to do on holiday in Varna, Bulgaria

During the height of summer, the sun allows full 11 hour days of sunbathing, as the city is on the same latitude of some of Europe’s more famous resorts like St Tropez. The beaches are at the end of the huge Varna Bay, and are safe for bathing, with no currents and calm waters.

Aside from being a prime beach resort, Varna is a cultural stronghold too. The city boasts many fine museums, galleries and important cultural buildings like the Balchik Royal Palace and the protected historical site of the Aldazha Monastery.

During the winter, the holiday houses in Varna are not empty. Not only do the city’s huge cultural attractions still keep drawing visitors to the villas and apartments in Varna, but those wishing to recuperate and relax in the undeniable luxury of Varna’s balneotherapy facilities. Warm, mineral rich waters spring up in Varna, and their curative properties have long been recognised, causing people with a range of aliments (and those just looking to be pampered) to take holidays to Varna for centuries.

A lovely, spacious villa ...perfect family holiday

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in the Retreat. It is very spacious, with a twin bedroom downstairs, opposite a big shower room and 3 bedrooms upstairs. the master has a shower room and the two twin rooms share a bathroom with a bath. The water pressure is lovely, especially in the downstairs shower!. The villa was clean and tidy on our arrival and we were met by George, who was very helpful. George left his number should we have needed it during our stay. We had one interruption with the internet connection, which George got fixed straight away. We hired a car so didn't require any excursions or taxis, but the visitors book shoes that this can be arranged. The kitchen was well equipped. The lounge/diner is huge! We ate in local restaurants or cooked on the BBQ in the garden. The balcony/terrace area is a perfect size. The children (12.10 and 8) loved the pool. A perfect size and well maintained. The only addition i'd add is a parasol or two for around the pool, and some cushions for the loungers. I have fair skin, so like to stay out of the sun most of the time, but enjoy being with the children around the pool. We bought some inflatables and left them in the storage room for others to enjoy. The pool isn't overlooked and the views across the fields towards the hills is beautiful. We spotted a pair of eagles circling the fields most days. Housemartins and swallows are regular visitors to the pool, swooping down for a drink throughout the day. The beach is a 5 minute drive. It is possible to walk, and we saw people doing this from the village, but in the heat and with young children, a car is recommended. The beach has a few lovely restaurants and bars and there is one large hotel. There are sun-loungers and parasols to rent and there was never any trouble getting one. The beach is visited by locals and the hotel users so it was never overcrowded. A short walk along the beach and you could avoid people quite easily. For a relaxing holiday, away from the noisy Brits, then this is perfect. Plenty to visit by car too. We went to water park , visited Varna and drove south to explore Nessebar. Gina was very helpful and provided plenty of information before the holiday to make the journey and stay easy. We will be going back!

An oasis of peace and tranquillity

5 of 5
A real gem of place, ideal for those wanting to recharge their batteries or "chillax" if you're a former politician. If relaxation is about a safe, comfortable, quiet location, far from the madding crowd, in the heart of the countryside, then this could be for you. Don't expect bright lights, relentless bars and clubbing, neon-lights and muzak. There's none of that: no inquisitive neighbours or even agricultural machinery in the surrounding fields; just blue sky and birdsong and time to catch up with yourself. It really is that quiet. If you are interested in "being seen at all the right places", don't bother - nobody is there to see you and no-one is looking (although I suspect you will eventually realise)! Rather, this is highly recommended for more discerning families and groups able to make their own entertainment. The villa is well-equipped with a very pleasant, walled garden, pool and separate outdoor kitchen (incl. bbq), although any more than four adults and (max.) two children would arguably be straining capacity. We would happily return and will start compiling a reading list for future visits.
