The picturesque Botev Houses are located near the rural village of Mirovets in a gently sloping landscape in the North-East of Bulgaria.
The two charming holiday homes, standing on a private property of about 1 ha, have been refurbished in traditional Bulgarian style with all mod cons, among which a swimming pool.
Each of the holiday homes has a magnificent view over the surrounding landscape.
What more do you need to leave your daily stress behind and enjoy a glorious 'dolce far niente'.
Mirovets offers magnificent views of Lake Beli Lom, which is more than 9 km in length, attracting numerous water birds.
Locally, the village is known as the 'stork village'. Each spring, the storks alight on their nests high on top of the lantern poles, which tower over the roofs of Mirovets. All summer long, you will be able to observe these graceful birds glide through the valleys or high in the sky. A true joy to watch!
