Villa in Borovec, near Asparuhovo Beach, Varna, Bulgaria
Trevor & Elizabeth
About Trevor & Elizabeth
My wife and I live with our two children in Manchester England. We have travelled extensively throughout Europe and fell in love with Bulgaria after it was recommended to us by a friend. After several holidays in this beautiful country we decided to purchase some land on the Black sea coast. and build our own villa. We now have our dream holiday home which we hope that other people will enjoy it as much as we do, With its Child friendly swimming pool as the shallow end is 3ft 3inch and the deep end is 5ft (1300-1500) so great for non swimmers and good swimmer alike which allows family’s to play pool games all together knowing that the pool has a UV light which guarantees the water will be 100% clean at all times.
Trevor & Elizabeth purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Trevor & Elizabeth chose Varna
Bulgaria has many beautiful locations one of which is the Borovecs, Varna, near Galata, with panoramic sea views and rolling countryside and a fantastic transport infrastructure. Travelling on the local bus is the easy and cheapest ways to visit all other resorts and locations. Our villa is built to EU standards and is totally accessible for all including wheelchair users. The airport is LESS then 25 minutes away, Varna City centre is less then 15 mins by car or bus. Beautiful beaches are in close proximity. The Villa is great for families and designed in such a way, that those who want to read a book in a quiet area can always find somewhere on one of the three balconies or in the garden under the apple tree, or at the pool side.

A lovely stay in a beautiful Villa
We spent 10 wonderful days in this lovely place in August 2018.
The villa itself lived up to all our expectations. It was clean, spacious, fully equipped with everything and more you would need for your stay. The location was good for access to shops, bars and restaurants, although we would highly recommend car hire as it is quite remote and nothing is really 'walk-able'. There was plenty of information available to guide you towards local restaurants and beaches, all of which were lovely to visit.
We had a day out in Nessebar Old Town which was lovely, and we included a visit to the Aqua Park.
Top Tips - take teabags! I noticed this tip on one of the pages on the owners direct app and we were glad we did as they are hard to source in the supermarkets.
Thank you to Trevor and Liz for allowing us to hire their beautiful villa. We will certainly be recommending you to friends and family
Hi Lorraine and family.
Thank you for your lovely review which is very much appreciated, we are very happy to know you enjoyed the villa and Bulgaria. Good tip about the tea bags as they only have mostly herbal tea, so thanks for that.

Beautiful Villa and pool, Very well equiped
We had 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 kids and the Villa gave us all the space we needed. Lovely Pool, Sun all day long and 3 separate outdoor areas to eat, .drink etc.
Very impressed how well equipped it was, games, books, inflatables, tons of kitchen equipment and more info about the local area and Bulgaria than I could read in my 8 days. I also appreciated all the little helpful things like soap in all the bathrooms, plenty of adaptors and an electric mosquito repeller in every room.
Personally I would recommend having a car as the village is quite isolated if you're on foot and buses seemed a bit erratic at times.Taxis were very cheap and reasonable but the address was difficult to convey by phone so getting back to the villa was easy, but getting a taxi to come to the Villa proved difficult. However once I hired a car everywhere was a short easy drive.
The area is lovely, the local beaches great and Varna is an exciting vibrant place with all you expect from a City.
The owners were very helpful and responded immediately to any requests and queries and were very accomodatingl and flexible concerning times and transfers.
In summary this is a beautiful Villa in a great setting and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone (I like)
What a lovely review and what a lovely family you have, thank you so much for booking the Rising Sun Villa and for your excellent review. We try very hard to make our guests feel welcome and your review makes it all worthwhile. This new mega highway being built through Varna right next to the bus depot could be the reason why the buses are not as punctual as they usually are, so hopefully that will resolve itself soon.
Lovely large villa, good amenities and facilities
First time holidaying in Bulgaria, wasn't disappointed, people are very helpful and accomodating
Thank you for your review, it was so nice to know that you and your family enjoyed the villa and beautiful Bulgaria. Especially as it was your first time in a country that has so much to offer.
Superbly equipped villa in quiet village with easy access to beaches, restaurants, shops and city.
We loved the Rising Sun Villa, it was spacious and comfortable for our family group of 7.
The pool was clean and big enough for all of us to swim, play games, and cool down.
There was plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots, pans etc. and the dishwasher kept it all clean.
We watched a couple of DVDs and the wifi meant that everyone could get their own entertainment.
Small local shops are a few minutes walk and everything else is a car or bus ride (no.46) costing 1 Lev for any journey.
The air-con in each bedroom meant we slept comfortably.
The air-con in the main room allowed us to escape the heat of the day when required.
The apartment at the top (1 bedroom + shower) has a separate front door so we could chill but we did allow the others to visit and share the great view. :)
Three toilet/shower rooms and one with a bath was plenty with no need for fights or long queues.
Service was great, we were met at the airport with keys and the pool man visited mid-stay.
We even had a minor water leak but the plumber was there within 30 minutes of a call to the owner and it was fixed in an hour.
The washing machine enabled us to return home with most of our clothes already clean.
The owners allowed us to match our stay to the best flights rather than insisting on saturday-saturday.
The local people were friendly, I just wish I had learned a bit of the language.
Thank you for your articulate review of our villa, which is very much appreciated. We really enjoyed having you and your family at the villa, and it is nice to know that you all embraced Bulgaria by getting the best out of everything it has to offer.

A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday in a superbly equipped and presented property.
We had a wonderful family holiday staying at the villa. The layout of the villa ensured everyone had plenty of space however also allowed everyone to get together for meal times. It was wonderful to be able to escape the family in the apartment room!, Everywhere was very clean and while we were there the pool was cleaned twice. The outdoor space was fantastic and many happy hours were spent in the pool.
We used public buses and taxi's and managed to get around the area. Eating out was extremely reasonable and we were made to feel welcome to Bulgaria
What a fantastic review, which is very much appreciated. We are constantly looking out for new ideas to make the villa even better, and your comments are very important to us. Your family have been great guest so thank you for coming to our villa in Bulgaria.
