|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Located in the charming village of Rogachevo this delightful villa is an ideal location to enjoy all the experiences that a holiday on the black sea coast can offer.
Ideally located to offer both a very relaxing peaceful holiday within a countryside setting and yet only 10 to 15 minutes drive away from the bustling resorts of both Albena and Golden Sands the location is a superb base to offer all options.
In addition there is also the excellent towns of Balchik and Kranevo to supplement the overall holiday experience with their places to eat, shops bars and the marina at Balchik where you can organise sailing days up the coast to Cape Kaliakria.
The villa has 3 bedrooms, 1 double and 2 twins, it has a large family bathroom and a separate toilet upstairs and another toilet downstairs next to the main lounge.
It has a main dining area set-up for 6 main guests and a well equipped kitchen with fridge-freezer, washing machine, microwave, oven and hob.

The main lounge an all bedrooms have full air conditioning.
The private pool has its own pool side bar with 6 large loungers and there is an outdoor patio area for dining alfresco in the evening looking over the fields to the Black Sea in the distance.
Varna airport is approximately 20 minutes travel time and there is also the option of flying to Burgas and travelling up the coast which is approximately 2 hours.
A new option for 2015 is the introduction of a new flight service from London Luton airport to Constanta in Romania which is just over 1.5 hour travel time to Albena and offers significant cost saving than flying to Varna
For 2016 there is a new direct flight from Balkan Holidays from Glasgow which flys on a Saturday direct to Varna airport.

We have been going to our property in Bulgaria since 2008 and have had the most fabulous holidays there ever since. We have met many great friends and look forward to getting back at least twice per year to relax and enjoy all the great things the villa can offer.
Robin Prior purchased this villa in 2006
We believe we have found the ideal location to enjoy the fantastic weather and experiences that Bulgaria can offer with our villa. It can be the most relaxing place ever to de-stress from daily life and yet when you want to enjoy the beach or the close bye resorts its literally right on the door step.
Detached 2 story villa, own pool, UN-restricted views to sea, charming village location, close to village shops and 2 restaurants, peaceful setting, easy access to resorts.
This was our first time at the Bolt Hole and it was the perfect retreat for a quiet family holiday. Clean, well presented and perfect in every way. The nearby supermarkets were well stocked and the restaurants in nearby Balchick provided great food and service on a nightly basis. It was the most relaxing holiday that we have had for many years. I cannot speak about the nearby beaches as we stayed by the pool for a fortnight! Mihaela, the lady who manages the property was always on hand to solve any minor queries.
Highly recommended provided that you have a car. We will return.
The Villa was excellent, exactly as advertised. It’s location is very tranquil with local shops an easy walking distance away. The pool was fantastic, the highlight of the holiday, highly appreciated by the whole family, it was perfect for just spending the day at the villa, enjoying the sunshine and then cooling off by taking a dip in the pool! The BBQ was well used and loved by all, perfectly placed on the outside patio, allowing alfresco dining with a nice glass of Bulgaria wine. The Villa was clean and nicely furnished, a real home from home. We particularly enjoyed the upstairs balcony with unobstructed views to the sea and a cool sea breeze. A car is a must, if you want to visit the local resorts or the pretty water front cafes of Balchik. Recommend a visit to the Palace and the Botanical gardens with its locally made speciality wine and free tasting. Local expats Ian and Michaela who help to service the Villa were on hand for any questions or help if needed. The Villa made our holiday and we left feeling relaxed and re-energised. All in all an extremely relaxing two week holiday.
I spent a week with my daughter at the end of May.This was my first visit to Bulgaria and was unsure what to expect however i was very impressed.The villa was most welcoming-a home from home-with many extras like free wifi access making for a great stay.The rooms are spacious and well appointed they all lead onto the balcony that overlooks the pool.The outside space is large and allows for eveyone to get a good spot to soak up the sunshine.Michaela who looks after the property was extemely helpful and there is a comprehensive manual left by the owner with suggestions and tips for you to enjoy your stay.I loved the day up at the golf club Black SeaRama where we enjoyed our lunch overlooking the course with spectacular views over the black sea and down the coast to Albena and Golden Sands.The beach at Albena is a short drive from the villa and you can enjoy a stroll along the lovely sandy beach before having a leisurely lunch or afternoon cocktail to refresh yourself.Food and drink is so cheap its hard to spend your money.All in all a great place to have a relaxing break and would love to go back.Would highly recommend a visit!
A fantastic villa with fantastic fascilities. This is the second time that we have had the pleasure of enjoying a two week stay here. The villa is very clean and well maintained by the owners, who have clearly made every effort to ensure that any stay there is relaxing and enjoyable. There is no problems staying in touch with home or elsewhere, as the owners have thoughtfully included wi-fi, which also gives access to a multitude of internet based TV chanels for when yu wish to hae a quiet night in. The villa is set in a quiet location and has unobstructed views out to the Black Sea. A car is a must for exploring and there are numerous restaurants in the local villages which serve excellent food at hard to beat prices. The owners have also employed the services of a uk expat (who resides in a local town) who oversees the maintenance of the property and who can be contacted in the event of any problems. All in a fantastic spot to lie back and relax by the pool, will hopefully return again soon.
This villa made our holiday. All the rooms are finished to a high standard and even with five girls we all managed to unpack with more than enough room. The service from Robin and Michaela (who will meet you when you arrive) was faultless and the extra hints and tips were amazing. The pool, bar and BBQ space were so lovely for hanging out at the villa and the balcony gave us a great venue to watch some of the thunderstorms we experienced during our stage. Thank you so much for having us, we are looking forward to coming back to stay as soon as possible! Would recommend to groups or families, fantastic!!!
We stayed at Villa Ecosse during the last 2 weeks of August 2013, this was our third trip to this villa over the last few years. What a fantastic villa it is with an amazing outlook to the Black Sea and all the benefits of being located in such a charming village which is close to everything you would want from a holiday.
The villa itself is one of 4 similar located on the south side of the village will clear uninterrupted views towards the Black Sea over open fields. Rogachevo, is located on the main route to the resort of Albena, a 30 minute drive from Varna airport. The village itself has three shops and English bar and a Bulgarian restaurant oddly called St Patricks all an easy walk from the villa.
We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the villa with the privacy that it offers yet everything is very close at hand, one point of note is that this is a village and the road to the villa whilst on the level is a little rough or the last stretch, however by Bulgarian standards this is perfectly acceptable.
The villa has a real charm about it and very homely with very good quality of furniture and fittings and there is ample entertainment options with Satellite TV, free internet access, DVD player and CD players for inside and outside whilst we were at the pool.
We really appreciated the air conditioning in the main lounge and the bedrooms as the temperature on some days was in the mid 90's
We didn't have a car, although they do advise this, and used the excellent services of local taxis to get to the local resorts of Albena, Kranevo, Golden Sands and Balchik and back to the airport at Varna for a very reasonable cost.
The pool is uniformly deep at 1.8 mtrs and a good size to cool off and the closeness of the poolside bar and the exceptionally large fridge freezer in the outhouse as a welcome way to cool off on the excellent recliners that are provided.
We loved doing our own thing on certain days with the outside BBQ area and often had breakfast and dinner outside meeting the neighbours from Dublin.
We are all agreed that this is the most beautiful place to have a relaxing and entertaining holiday in such a lovely villa and we are already making plans to return this year.
The Villa is located in the village of Rogachevo which is very close to the resorts of Albena, Kranevo and Golden Sands. The village itself has 3 shops and 2 restaurants (English and Bulgarian) which are both within walking distance and are very good with a wide selections of food and drinks available.
There are 4 villas of this type all together at the south side of the village with open outlooks toward the Black Sea and have a high degree of privacy. Each of the 4 are owned by UK owners and all are maintained to a very high standard.
The villa itself has unlimited broadband connection, satellite TV, full air conditioning in all rooms, 3 separate bedrooms, 2 toilets and a large family bathroom, a poolside bar, an outhouse with a large fridge freezer for daytime drinks, a large outside patio area with table and chairs and flood lit good sized pool which is 1.8 metres deep ideal for cooling down during the long sunny days of summer.The villa is looked after for us by Ian and Michaela an english couple who will greet you upon arrival giving you any relevant information about our villa and the facilities it offers.They would be your first point of contact in an emergency and can offer help and advise if needed.They would be happy to organise pick ups and drop offs at both Varna and Bourgas airports if required.
The village is a good mixture of local Bulgarian home-owners and international owners from the UK, Russia, Germany and the rest of Europe this adds to the community feel of the village and you can often meet the local major in the village shop at night having a beer.
On of the local shops and the English Bar (Elbar) offer a low cost taxi service which you can use if you don't want to hire a car on your holiday and can also offer airport drop off and pick up services if required.
The city of Varna is about 25 minutes by car and has all the attractions Bulgaria's 2nd largest city can offer. Large shopping malls, bars clubs restaurants and a host of tourist attractions and things to do. There are a large number of historical museums to visit a cathedral and the opera house. The beach at Varna is a bustling place both day and night with a host of bars and restaurants to suit any taste.
The shopping malls are large and include all the usual fast food outlets that are available in any large city, indoor bowling and movie theatre's showing all the latest releases in English with Bulgarian subtitles
The villa offers both the option of an entirely peaceful holiday away from it all or an ideal location to visit three bustling resorts with some of the best beaches in Europe on your door step.
Whilst it is not necessary to rent a car it would be advisable to be able to have the flexibility that the villa offers. There are many interesting places to visit within a short travel time
There is a water park at Golden Sands, a fantastic beach and lively nightlife attractions, its a great place to visit for shops souvenir's and clothing.
Albena is very close and has excellent beach bars, restaurants shops and activities that will suit all members of the family, perhaps the biggest attraction however is the beach. With its warm water and the golden fine sand it is a ideal safe beach to swim and enjoy a host of attractions including jet ski, pedalo boats, fishing trips, paragliding etc. This is supplemented by many other activities within in the resort that covers a wide range of other sporting activities.
At night the town of Balchik has a number of very good restaurants which are well worth a visit, Hemingway s specialises in local caught fish and there a number of excellent places to eat out located all along the seafront that come alive at night.
The small town of Kranevo offers its excellent beach and a number of beach bar's which are both interesting and excellent value for money, there are a number of excellent BBQ type restaurants which appeal to the large number of students that have their holidays in the town.
