“Lovely villa, great hosts, highly rated.”
Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Villa Rosen is lovely holiday rental. It's located in a small village a few miles away from the black sea coast, so it's out of the way of the main tourist hubbub. This was one of the main reasons we chose it in the first place: the beach can be nice, but sometimes you just need a bit of space to stretch out and relax, and this is a good place to do just that. The pool area is just about perfect. There are a couple of shady areas, one on each side, so even when one is catching the sun, the other is sheltered; there's a good permanent barbecue, plenty of seating, even two sets of tables/chairs so you can choose whether to eat in sunshine or shade. There's also a semi-enclosed patio on the upper floor which is a nice cool place to sit in the evening. Overall plenty of space for the family to stretch out.

The hosts are really helpful. David pops round every day or so to check the pool is OK; Michelle is always willing to help with things like trip bookings or advice for outings etc. There was a nice welcome pack waiting when we arrived which got us started.

In terms of practicalities, there are some facilities within the village but they are limited. There are a couple of 'supermarkets' and a small bakery (closed Sunday, don't leave it too late to buy breakfast on other days) which I would class more as corner shops: they stock the basics but the selection is not wide. We made quite heavy use of them for 'spur of the moment'-type meals but you'll probably need to go to Sozopol or Burgas where there is more choice. There's supposedly a pizza restaurant in the village too, but our one attempt to eat there was not successful: we sat around for 15 minutes being studiously ignored by the people behind the bar (who may have been staff, relatives, customers, who knows): we ended up having a BBQ by the pool instead so a good result, but not what we had planned. Apart from that, there's not a lot in the village, and I'd suggest you probably need access to a car in order to get around unless you're happy sitting by the pool for the duration of your stay. Also note that Rosen is a working village, so it's not always quiet. There are a few mosquitos around in the evening: it's not swarming with them and they're not a major pest, but if you don't use repellent or cover up, you're going to pick up a few bites so bear that in mind.

Coming from the UK, we found this part of Bulgaria was excellent value: food (including eating out) and drink approximately half the price you might expect here. If you do hire a car, watch out for the road surfaces for the first couple of days as in places they are terrible. You get used to spotting the worst of the potholes quite quickly. Parking in the larger tourist centres can be challenging: but if you listen carefully to Michelle's advice you should be OK (we always found somewhere). And, while the main tourist beaches can be a bit intimidating, if you have a car you can drive to much less packed locations. We tended to go to a beach where you can actually park on the sand. No facilities (including no lifeguards), so perhaps not one to use when the surf is up or if you want lunch in a cafe, but it was quiet and served our needs. Weather in August was wall-to-wall sunshine.

In summary, we thought it was great, the villa was lovely, we felt that we'd had excellent value for money and a really good holiday.

Hi Richard & Sarah, we would like to thank you for taking the time to provide a detailed review of your stay with us at the villa, the village and the surrounding area and to share some of your experiences. We were sorry to hear of your experience at the local pizza restaurant which was disappointing for us to hear. The owners only recently opened the restaurant by literally a few weeks and were only able to provide a menu in bulgarian as the village do not have many english speakers. I am sorry you were not able to be served and as I know the owners I will seek to address this, in order future guests do not have such an experience. We are both delighted you enjoyed the villa and pool area and were able to relax on your holiday with us, thank you for your kind comments. We wish you all the very best and once again thankyou for coming to stay with us here at Villa Rosen in Bulgaria, we loved having you! Kind Regards, Michelle & Davidx

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Wonderful villa, spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. Very generous welcome pack and excellent assistance provided by Michelle and David, always on hand but never intrusive.
Plenty of variety on offer, great beaches, restaurants to suit all tastes and great value for money, quad biking, kayaking, wave boarding, water parks, even the car hire went without a hitch!
Big thanks to David and Michelle for a relaxing, stress free holiday.

“Very nice villa close to the Bulgarian seaside”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Large perfectly maintained villa in the centre of village Rosen (about 20 km from Burgas). It has private pool with sunbeds and big covered BBQ area which our party of nine (two families) enjoined extensively for a week. The temperature never drops under 20 degrees during the summer in Bulgaria (even the evening it rained heavily!) so you can stay out as late as you like in your shorts - priceless. Tip: The local mosquitoes are harmless but use repellent to avoid annoying bites.
The villa itself is fully equipped with two kitchens, few bathrooms, air conditioning, plenty of kitchen stuff, all sorts of towels, linen, and everything you might need in a self catering villa. It has WiFi as well (a must have nowadays) which worked OK in the villa. The signal doesn't extend to the pool area but that was fine by us because the kids were forced to lift their faces from their mobiles ;)
The lovely owners Michelle & Dave, who've settled and live near by, are really enjoying their Bulgarian venture and have thought of everything. They met us at the villa and showed as around. Even welcomed us with a cold bottle of Prosecco and stuff - very nice touch.
There are few local shops meters away from the villa with everything you might need for your stay. Burgas, Sozopol, and local beaches are only 15-20 mins drive.
Michelle and Dave, you met and even exceeded all our expectation!
Big thank you and all the best
Efrem, family, and friends
