New 4 Bedroom Villa covering 230sqm, south facing and sleeps 8 people. With four large bedrooms and three bathrooms all on one level, it makes it ideal for families of all ages sharing, as well as couples. The bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioning and the lounge has a log burner, with the property benefiting from electric heaters throughout, making this property suitable for rental all year round. It has commanding views from the enclosed south facing terrace and is situated within a small complex over looking the valley 5 mins walk from the traditional village of Obrochiste and close to the resort of Albena, Balchik and Kranavo with Varna being approx 40 mins away. There are several international golf courses within 30 mins drive. Transfer time from Varna Airport is approx 30 minutes.
My wife and I work in the UK and have two sons 19 and 21. We both work and look forward to our holidays in Bulgaria, where we have made many really good friends, who either live in Bulgaria or holiday as we do within the Complex and beyond. Every body is so friendly, no matter what you want somebody will help. It is a real community.
Simon Parker purchased this villa in 2010
We came to Albena on holiday in 2009 and stayed in the villa adjacent to the one we purchased. We instantly fell in love with the Bulgaria and the resort of Albena and its surrounding resorts, in particular the beaches, the culture and the people, so much so that within 6 months we had purchased our Villa.
With Bulgaria being outside the Euro, the cost of living is approximately 50% of the UK, so you can eat out, or enjoy the entertainment, without it hitting the pocket and the quality of the food and beverage is excellent.
This Villa had everything that we requied and within minutes became our home for 17 days. It is far enough away from the pool to be private without being to far away. The views from the front of the villa are a delight day and night. We travelled with my parents and having their own ensuite room away from the main sleeping area made for a very good set up. Our boys then split between the two twin rooms with ourselves in the master. Having an additional two bathrooms helped when we decided to all get ready to go out at the same time. The kitchen is fully equipped and we made good use of all the beach equipment. As villas go we had everything we needed and much more, it was very clean and the bedlinens fresh.......I'm also pleased to report that all the beds had good mattreses and everyone enjoyed good night sleeps. Working in Property Managment I can be hard to please but at no point did I pick up on anything that I would in my line of work.
This is our second visit to Bulgaria and I can honestly say we have fallen in love with the country there is so much on offer you just have to go out and find it. The benefit of this villa has to be the neighbours!! They helped to point us in the direction of fab places and special resturants with helpful maps and local knoweledge.
All in all we are all sad to be back but we will return.....to stroll along the sea front in Balchik, enjoy the delights of the beaches, scream and laugh on the rides at the water park in Albena and eat fabulous food in the many local resturants. Bulgaria and the Villa made a perfect combination with heaps of happy holiday memories made.....Holiday blues have hit us hard.
This is a great villa and location for a family holiday. We are a family of 4 plus 2 in laws and there is more than enough room for us all. Very clean and well equipped. A car is a must for the holiday we ate out every evening as prices so cheap in Bulgaria, balchik was our favourite location for evening meals only 10 minute drive along the coast road. Great food and prices everywhere we ate. Pool was great for kids on the complex as so hot every day we were there. Thanks again to Simon who was always helpful for any information we needed before we arrived. Would highly recommend this villa.
I just wanted to thank Simon and his friends Alison and Terry for making our holiday so fantastic. The villa is beautiful and very well maintained with all the comforts of home. I can not recommend it highly enough and we would definitely book it again. Bulgaria is a lovely place to holiday, great places to go for days out, Albena and Balchik are a must. Our daughter is wheelchair bound and getting her around was a challenge as the roads and pavements are not the best but we managed. What a great holiday!!!
Sorry Simon I meant to post this weeks ago but time has flown by, your villa is perfect, we (a family of four) stayed with friends who are a couple and with the setup you have it was simple to have our own areas whilst sharing the common central rooms. Everything is spotlessly clean and really well equipped. We are from Cornwall & often when away find the beaches to be less than what we are used to but the Albena resort which is 2 minutes down the road is brilliant, just big enough to keep a family with various ages happy without being too big or noisy to spoil a relaxing holiday. I would recommend it to anyone.
What a lovely villa. It was everything we hoped it would be. Simon was most helpful answering questions before we left the Uk. We bumped into the next door neighbour as soon as we arrived so we knew where he was if we wanted him. The villa worked very well for our families. Myself and husband (no kids) had the ensuite double off the lounge. This meant our friends ( a couple and 2 children had the other 3 bedrooms and 2 baths which they could actually close off behind a door providing in effect their own wing. Great covered terrace. Used BBQ 3 times. Pools were lovely and lightly used. Restaurant at the complex gave us one of the best meals we had and we travelled the whole of Bulgaria. Could not fault Simon's service or the villa. Would love to go back. Please book this villa - you won't regret it.
Having made arrangements for our holiday, Simon contacted us to advise further help and assistance that was available, airport transfers, local and reasonable car hire(a Must) and a wonderfully stocked fridge of the essentials(including Beer).
we arrived at the airport and our transfer was waiting, a short journey from the airport we arrived at the villa(wow) we arrived late in the evening but the owners of the whole complex were advised by Simon of our late arrival and had the kitchen staff on standby to feed us and the bar was open (what a welcome)
The Villa was extremely well appointed, comfortable and homly made so by Simon and his family with a guide folder of what to do when to do it and where to go whilst in Bulgaria. The Villa was spotless, modern and very very comfortable.
I and my family would not hesitate to recommend this Villa to anyone that wants a comfortable, modern and relaxing holiday.
The only thing left to do is say THANK YOU Simon and his family.
