The picturesque Botev Houses are located in the outskirts of the rural village of Mirovets: a slanting, hilly landscape in northeastern Bulgaria.
All of the three houses were renovated in a traditional Bulgarian style, though all of them provide contemporary comfort. The Botev Houses are embedded in a 1-hectare private property with a swimming pool.
Each of them has a wonderful view of the surrounding landscapes.
It's the perfect place to trade tension and stress for a refreshing share of 'sweet doing nothing'.
Mirovets has a view of the Beli Lom Lake, which is 9 km long and forms an attraction pole for a large variety of waterfowls.
The village is known as 'the stork village’: every spring storks arrive to build their nests on the lamp posts that tower above Mirovets’ rooftops. All summer long, you can see these majestic birds floating with graceful wing beat, through the valleys or high in the sky. A feast for the eyes!
