A beautiful. peaceful, safe and relaxing base with excellent facilities that I would highly recommend. I have stayed here 4 times. The villa offers stunning views across to Albena and the terrace receives sunshine from early morning through to late evening. Inside the villa all rooms are decorated and clean and have everything you require from comfortable clean beds to kettle and toaster. It is a home from home.
Balchik and Albena are lovely resorts offering fantastic restaurants, bars and beaches and no hassle from locals or touts. The local roads and prom offer training routes for any cyclists and runners amongst you. This is the only place I have returned to several times in Bulgaria and it is one I will continue to return to for all of the above reasons.
I have stayed at this villa for the past four years. The villa itself is bright and spacious with views across the Black Sea coast. The villa is fully equipped with kitchen facilities, TV etc. Bedrooms very light, each with their own balcony. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony each morning for breakfast taking in the view. The villa is in a quiet location but within walking distance to the beach and local shop. The nearest stretch of beach is very tranquil and some days you get the beach to yourself, it does get busier at the weekends but never packed. It’s a short bus trip into Balchik to enjoy lunch or evening meal in one of the many restaurants overlooking the harbour. Food and wine in the restaurants are very reasonably priced and of a good quality. For those laid back evenings back at the villa, the balcony provides the perfect setting for a bbq where you can sip wine and watch the sun set. The area has a laid back feel to it and you really feel like you are away from the busy pace back at home.
Arrived for the first time in Bulgaria on a late evening flight. After a short trip of approx 25 mins from the airport we arrived at a well lit property and opened the door to a lovely cool reception room . It was so late we all chose from one of the lovely four bedroom.s We all woke to our own balcony and an amazing view of the Back Sea. Now for breakfast on the terrace. We found everything and more that we needed in the Villa from a helpful proprietor to amenities near by. Local shop and excellent bar/ café. Only a short bus or taxi journey to the local town is a must. So many choices of great places to eat we tried some where different nearly every night. The beach is 20 mins walk all down hill..yes you do have to walk up a hill to get back but its well worth it .As the beach is soft sand , crystal clear water and shallow in many places. Lots of places to visit by car/taxi for shopping/beaches/sight seeing steeped in local history. We will be booking to go again next year, we were all pleasantly surprised how much Bulgaria has to offer and very friendly :)
Had the pleasure of staying in a wonderful villa the views of which are fantastic especially at night overlooking the Black Sea. The villa itself is extremely spacious with four large bedrooms . The town of Balchik is a 5 minute drive by car or you can catch the local bus .

This was the first time we had been to Bulgaria so were a little unsure what to expect - we needn't have worried! Villa Izgrev was perfectly situated for us - a 20-25 minute drive from Varna airport and in close proximity to the beach and local amenities. Local people were friendly and the owner was very helpful too.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we are going back this August!
