Bulgaria, a gateway to the Balkans

With cosmopolitan cities, soul-stirring scenery and centuries of history to discover, Bulgaria is quickly emerging as one of Europe's most captivating destinations. Golden beaches keep sun seekers happy, while snow-dusted ski resorts ensure that winters are on point. You'll also find ancient fortresses, a chic cafe culture and some of Europe's best religious art. Whatever makes you tick, Bulgaria vacation rentals promise a local experience in this slice of the Balkans.

Unforgettable adventures in Bulgaria

Fringed by sandy beaches and turquoise water, Bulgaria's Black Sea coast reels in sun seekers galore. If you're a luxury traveler, there's no looking past Primorsko, a seaside resort studded with upscale Bulgaria vacation rentals. There's no better way to start the day than with a dip in your sparkling swimming pool. Walking tours are a great way to discover cities like Sofia, Varna and Plovdiv. Why not throw in a cultural show for an authentic taste of Bulgaria's colorful folk heritage? Intrepid travelers can horseback ride in the mountains, hike around glacier lakes and explore the countryside by bicycle.

City breaks in Sofia, Bulgaria's captivating capital

Sofia, Bulgaria's elegant capital, is a natural starting point. It's easy to fall under its spell, with tree-lined boulevards, lavish gardens and world-class museums. The city's Orthodox roots run deep, with a string of onion-domed cathedrals, red-brick churches and ancient monasteries to explore. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral trumps them all, with gilded domes, intricate mosaics and a cavernous interior. Planning a city break in Sofia? While there is no shortage of hotels, Bulgaria vacation rentals raise the bar with stylish apartments in the heart of Sofia. The best treat guests to boutique decor, well-equipped kitchens and sunny terraces.

Hit the ski slopes in Bulgaria

Bulgaria attracts most of its visitors in the summer, when the country enjoys long days, warm weather and plenty of sunshine. Spring and fall can be rewarding times to visit, especially if you're in search of quieter beaches or cooler hiking weather. Things don't slow down in the winter, when Bulgaria's ski scene swings into action. Bulgaria vacation rentals showcase a fantastic selection of properties in top resorts like Bansko, Borovets and Pamporovo. You can hit the apres ski scene or settle down for a night of wine, cheese and banitsa pastries by a blazing fireplace.

From Black Sea beaches to snow-dusted mountains in Bulgaria

Beyond stunning Black Sea beaches and photogenic cities, Bulgaria cradles wild landscapes. The country is home to 7 mountain ranges, which means you'll encounter snow-dusted peaks, shimmering glacier lakes and alpine forests. If you're hiking, keep an eye out for wolves, bears and lynx. Bulgaria is 7th heaven for nature lovers, with highlights including hut trekking in the Stara Planina range, summiting Mount Vihren and birdwatching in Pirin National Park. Even in Sofia you can still connect with nature, with easy access to Mount Vitosha and the cascading Boyana Waterfall.
