Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just come back from our holiday in Balchik, Bulgaria. The villa was fab,with plenty of room(there were 7 of us) lots of light and airy space and amazing views across the Black sea.The pool was absolutely fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the swallows and swifts swooping over it every afternoon. The location is quiet and very restful, Our flight was 1 ½ hours late but Michaela was fantastic and bought pizzas and chips which were keeping warm in the oven when we arrived ,( Very useful when you have ravenous teenagers with you !), The villa was very well equipped and the welcome pack of groceries excellent as we arrived on a late evening flight so could not get shopping until the next day.

Michaela is an absolute diamond, with excellent local knowledge and was really helpful and welcoming. We did hire a car, although we didn’t use it very much, as we are keen walkers even though the area is very hilly and we all came home with very well toned leg muscles! It’s worth knowing that Dimex car hire prefer to be paid in Euros not Levas. Then you won’t take too much Bulgarian money home with you as you receive your deposit back at the airport.

Overall we’ve had a great holiday and have come home well rested and relaxed .If you want to go to Balchik on holiday, then I recommend that you stay in Villa Viola

Stunning views from this beautiful spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely stay in Villa Viola in June 2017. This was our first summer holiday to Bulgaria and we were not disappointed.

We had transfers from Varna airport, this was extremely efficient and hassle free, these guys are polite and friendly which made us feel we were in safe hands.

We arrived at the villa at night time. We were welcomed by Michaela with a lovely welcome pack.

The villa was beautiful even in the dark. The lights in the pool were simply amazing.

The villa was clean and so so so spacious. It really had a lot of character.

The bedrooms were staggered across different levels and were all huge and en suit.

The real hub was downstairs where the kitchen and seating area was. This worked well for meals and using the huge infinity pool as well as grabbing shade.

We had some lovely meals out. This included "Sylvia's" which served great steak with exceptional service.

We also visited the water park in Albena which is a worthwhile day out!!!

I would recommend car rental for this location as this made popping out to supermarkets and the seafront much easier. (The villa is up a steep road, which helps the views but not my feet)

I would definitely return! Thank you.

I would recommend Villa and Location. Good Beaches. Looked after very well by Michala who looks after the villa.very friendly and has a wealth of knowledge about the area nothing was too much trouble . You don't really need a car as Taxi are so cheap. Albena Beach is great and the water park at Golden Sands is worth going to. The Verroni restaurant us a must . A very relaxing stay which was great for all .

The most fabulous relaxing holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Villa Viola earlier on this month for 1 week with my boyfriend and 3 friends and all I can say is WOW! Stunning villa, views and location, I couldn't recommend a more beautiful, chilled place to go on holiday.

The villa is very spacious, all bedrooms rooms have ensuits. The kitchen and pool area is great for entertaining, the pool is a decent size so perfect for large family's or groups.

The Villa is about a 15 minute walk to the harbour, bars and restaurants but there was a couple of days I couldn't walk it due to being pregnant so we called a taxi which was so cheap.

Balchik is a great location, very clean and we all felt extremely safe :)

We are definitely going to book up next year for 2 weeks as a week just wasn't long enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we welcome all comments and reviews, as they help us understand and improve what our guests most look for in a holiday. I fell in love with Balchik and built the villa in 2007. 10 years on more and more visitors are finding the Varna region of Bulgaria a hidden gem and visitors numbers are growing. We would very much enjoy seeing you again next year. We are already receiving enquiries for 2018, so please try to reserve your dates early.

The perfect relaxation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa Viola is situated in a beautiful position up in the hills overlooking the sea coast. Well maintained and in fabulous condition, all the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable all with en-suite bathrooms and two have private balconies. Have just come away from a fantastic week with friends chilling by the pool, fabulous BBQs and delicious meals from some of the local restaurants nearby. The villa is also walking distance of the bars and restaurants on the sea front, and Balchik Botanical Gardens. I couldn't recommend highly enough, and we would love to return again next year.

VillaViola - beautiful - calm and bright.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here.I travelled with my son & daughter neice and nephews 16/19/23/25 age brackets,all loved the place,spending hours just enjoying the pool which was very refreshing and essential.The whether was perfect sun for 10 days continuous and we enjoyed fantastic BBQ's on the terrace.

The interior is stylishly decorated and just nice homely touches around you - loved the DVD selection.

Pool lights glowed and the little birds that would just skim the water and fly off at a certain time of the afternoon were very sweet.

Peaceful and delightful - appeal to all ages and types.

From beginning to end we were looked after very warmly and with a really sincerely helpful attitude.

Everything was made easy from flight advice to pick ups, car hire etc - all taken care of.

Total relax from start to finish -

Well - i was reluctant to write this as now it's going to get booked up and I'll miss my slot :-)....................

An experience not to be missed! Villa Viola is perfectly situated in a quiet area above Balchik, with the Black Sea and marina a 25 minute walk away down a meandering path through the village past interesting typical Bulgarian homes.

Balchik is an historic seaside/harbour village with a selection of typical Bulgarian shops and an upmarket seafront promenade which offers a wide variety of traditional and stylish bars, restaurants, hotels & attractions. Other places of interest include the Royal Palace and Botanical Gardens with its 2000 plant & cactus species.

Above the villa are country walks to the top of the mountain past more Bulgarian homes offering amazing views both inland & towards the sea.

Albena resort is a short drive away, with its sandy beaches, water sports & children entertainments plus a selection of bars and restaurants and a Water Park.
