Welcome to our lovely house - and new pool - in Merdanya.
Enjoy our brand new pool. (Our kids lived in it last summer). This is the view from the balcony.
Our lovely open plan two storey holiday house (with great views)
Welcome! The gate opens to reveal...
Our open plan dining and kitchen area - very social and relaxed.
We've kept some of the original stone walls from the old outbuildings.
When the pool gets too exhausting, there's always the hammocks.
The second double bedroom upstairs.
The main bedroom upstairs with French doors closed to that great view...
...but if you open the doors, this is what you get.
Morning coffee view.
Chill out zone
Another chill out zone :-)
That light. That water. That sky...
If you're an early riser, this is the daily sunrise view from the balcony.

Meal time. An important part of any holiday. The fresh produce you can buy here tastes amazing.

Hello! Love hanging on the balcony.

About the neighbourhood
Our house is set on the edge of Merdanya village, with wonderful views out across the foothills. Merdanya is a traditional and authentic working Bulgarian village. Expect some wattle and daub buildings and the odd pothole along with herds of goats and the occasional horse pulled cart. Nearly every villager grows their own food so the gardens are full of proudly tended corn, peppers and vines. On the town square there are two little grocery/general stores which are good for food basics. Other shops include an ironmonger, several cafe / bars and a fish shop. The fresh supplies are local, seasonal and delicious.

How to get there
It's easy to fly to Bulgaria from the UK with regular flights from carriers such as Bulgaria Air, British Airways, easyJet and WizzAir. Ryanair fly from Stanstead to Plovdiv.

From Sofia or Varna, we recommend organising a personal transfer with our agent, Neil. This costs around £90 and Neil will let you in the house and show you around. He also has child car seats and a cot for hire. Contact us and we can help you arrange this. Otherwise, there are excellent regular coaches to VT, which take about 3 hours and leave from the central bus station. There is also a train, which takes longer (around 4 hours) but is very scenic.

Car hire is available in VT or at Sofia airport, starting at around £20 per day. Taxis are also plentiful and inexpensive. Our local English speaking taxi driver...
