Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Lorraine,



We are back from the nightingale house and we really wanted to let you know how we enjoyed our stay there.

Difficult to say what pleased us most as everything was simply perfect : the view, the calm, the comfort, the swimming pool, the information provided, the helpfulness of Jane and Dave, the possibility of making excursions without having to do long distances.

It was our first stay in Bulgaria, a country really unknown for us till now. We surely want to go back, as our holiday made us discover a real paradise.



Thank you for everything!



Lieve and Luc

COMFORTABLE HOUSE, QUIET VILLAGE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The house is comfortable, clean, well equipped and exactly as described in the listing. Lorraine was very helpful prior to our arrival and provided a lot of information and easy-to-follow directions so we had no difficulty finding the property. During our stay Dave was likewise very helpful and informative, making us feel very welcome in this delightful village. The local bar/restaurant provides good simple meals at very affordable prices and has the advantage of being within walking distance. Other restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions are within half an hour's drive. We liked the traditional villages of Bozhenitse and Tryavna, and the beautiful mountain scenery. Veliko Tarnovo is in a stunning setting and well worth a visit. There are plenty of walks close by and the wild flowers, butterflies and birds are wonderful at this time of year if you are a nature lover. We would love to return one day. Owen and Carol

STUNNING PROPERTY WITH A LOVELY (FENCED) POOL

  • 5 of 5
An idyllic week in a beautiful property with lots to do close to the property.

Property is well maintained, well equipped, comfortable and clean.

Veliko Tarnovo is worth visiting as are the lovely towns of Tryavna, Arbanasi and Bozhenitsa. The boys enjoyed the Go Ape challenge (£2.50 each) a little further on from Dryanovo Monestery and the restaurant (£33 for the 5 of us inc drinks and 2 courses!) there is first class as well.

What is so good about Bulgaria and Eastern Europe generally is that you don't need to think twice when the children ask for a drink or an ice cream. With ice creams around 70p each and a drink in a mehana around £1 spending your spending money is something of a challenge!

Most of the younger generation speak English and are glad of the opportunity to practice. A knowledge of the Russian alphabet is useful when driving along country lanes where signposting tends to be in Cyrillic. Main road signposts show both alphabets,

Thanks to Dave and Jane for all their help particularly the welcome pack which was very welcome after a long day.

We would certainly recommend both the property and the area to anyone wanting to explore some of the nicest parts of inland Bulgaria.

VILLAGE, HOUSE, VIEWS, PEOPLE, COUNTRY = BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for 2 weeks from 29th June - 13th July 2013. Lorraine was very helpful before we went and emailed us lots of information and advice. We had a fantastic time in Slaveykovo. The house is beautiful - the views are amazing, the pool is perfect on a summers day/night and the house has everything that you need. Great little bar at the bottom of the hill which serves cheap food and drink. Dave who looks after the house couldn't have been more helpful - even gave us a lift to the supermarket when we first arrived and gave us some great tips of where to visit, where to eat etc. Plenty of caves, monasteries, waterfalls, towns, villages to fill your time or just laze around the pool and take in the wonderful views of the mountains. Will definitely be back to visit sometime in the future. Thank you :)

GREAT NEW YEAR HOLIDAY

  • 4 of 5
We spent our New Year holiday in this beautiful villa.
When we arrived, the house was worm and cozy.The property is well maintained and looked after.The house keeper Bernie was very friendly and helpful.The surrounding areas are very beautiful and you can enjoy the beautiful nature.The village is very quiet and we really enjoyed our escape from the city.
The only thing that can be improved is the satellite TV. There were just a few channels to chose from.
We will definitely return for a spring or summer holiday in this beautiful place.

WUNDERVOLLE WOCHE

  • 5 of 5
Das Haus ist absolut ruhig und wunderschön gelegen, mit einer phänomenalen Aussicht - trotz der anfangs infernalischen Hitze bis 40 Grad Celsius konnte man es (auch nachts) gut aushalten - um die Supermärkte in Dryanovo haben wir allerdings einen großen Bogen gemacht, wir fuhren nach Veliko Tarnovo, dort gibt es Billa,Lidl,Penny etc. - Bernie hat uns immer weitergeholfen, auch als der Strom mal ausfiel - wir werden bestimmt noch mal wiederkommen!

IMMER WIEDER

  • 4 of 5
Waren bereits zum drittenmal in diesem Ferienhaus. Ruhig gelegen, wunderbare Aussicht, zweckmäßige Einrichtung.
Das Haus war durch den "Housekeeper Bernie", der jederzeit erreichbar war und einem hilfsbereit zur Seite stand, in einem sauberen Zustand übergeben worden.
Im Dorf befindet sich ein kleiner Einkaufsladen (vormittags nur an bestimmten Tagen geöffnet) in dem man in den frühen Abendstunden immer wieder auf englischsprechende Personen trifft, die bei einem kühlen Getränk, einem hilfsbereit mit Tips und Ratschlägen zur Seite stehen. Auch erhält man dort die ein oder andere kleine Mahlzeiten für wenig Geld.
Mit dem Pkw benötigt man knapp 10 Minuten nach Dryanovo, wo man in 2 "Supermärkten" sich mit dem nötigsten eindecken kann und bei sommerlichen Temperaturen das Freibad besuchen kann. Größere Supermärkte sind etwa 25 km entfernt vorhanden.
Pkw zwingend erforderlich, es sei denn man will die gesamte Zeit nur auf der wunderbaren Terrasse verbringen. Für Familien mit Teenagern nicht unbedingt empfehlenswert, da es für diese keine Freizeitangebote im Ort gibt. Ansonsten ein Ort um sich vom stressigen Alltag perfekt zu erholen.
Wie es so aussieht, werden wir wohl auch noch ein viertesmal unseren nächsten Urlaub dort verbringen.
