and Black Sea Coast Apartments
The Stara Zagora region and Kazanlak area are rich in history and cultural attractions as well as offering beautiful scenery and many sporting facilities and mineral spa resorts. You can visit Roman ruins, Neolithic houses, Shipka Monument and Thracian King Tombs, or walk or cycle the numerous mountain trails, go fishing, sailing and wind-surfing in the summer and skiing in the winter. You can visit Stara Zagora Mineral spa resort, Yagoda mineral spa pool or Pavel Banya for massages, treatments and soak in the mineral pools, world renowned for their healing properties.
TheRentalBug offers a couple of Bulgarian houses for holiday lets during the summer months and now an apartment on the Black Sea coast. By staying in a fully renovated Bulgarian village house you get all the creature comforts of home and modern living but at the same time can experience life in a typical Bulgarian village; watch the goats wander home early evening, BBQs on peaceful summer nights and generally unwind and get away from it all. Yet you are still only a 15 to 20 minutes drive from Stara Zagora city centre with all amenities like large supermarkets, numerous restaurants, Opera house, museums, fitness centres and so on and 15 minutes from Kazanlak and the Valley of the Roses and Thracian King Tombs.
The village where these Bulgarian rental properties are has a couple of shops selling the basics, a small bar and local restaurant. The villagers are lovely and friendly and it is not unusual for them to give you a gift of a cabbage or tomatoes or fruit from their garden. Or maybe some homemade wine or Rakia.
In the summer, you can spend your days around one of the many mineral spa pools close by, having BBQs, walking and cycling in the mountains and visiting Lake Koprinka, fishing, sailing and more. Within half an hour's drive you can visit the Neolithic houses and museum in Stara Zagora (some of the oldest dwellings in Europe), take a private tour of the Thracian tombs around Kazanlak, have fun at the water park, relax by the mineral spa pools in Yagoda or just pass the time sampling local dishes in cosy little Mehanas (restaurants).
The area is ideal for artists and photographers - take the chair lift up to the top of the Blue Mountains at Sliven and wander amongst the many flauna and forna up there, visit the lovely municipality town of Magleesh and see the traditional rug washing area and wander up the waterfall.
The Stara Zagora region is relatively undiscovered by tourists, despite the wealth of historical and cultural attractions and the fantastic scenery of the Balkans and Sredna Gora mountains close by. Why not experience a different kind of holiday and a different area of Bulgaria, away from the noise, over development and over crowded places like Sunny Beach, Golden Sands or Bansko. Days trips to Plovdiv, Veliko Turnovo or Burgas or Sofia are all easily possible from here by car or coach or train.
And now we can offer a lovely studio apartment sleeping 2 to 3 on a fabulous complex just 6km from Sunny Beach. There are 6 swimming pools and a regular bus to the beach.
Why not combine your rural Bulgarian holiday with a week at the seaside - spend a few days in the countryside and a few days at the beach. Or if you are looking for somewhere to stay for a few weeks or couple of months over the summer then we can offer furnished, renovated houses for 250 Euros a month including bills (water and electric - internet extra).
If you do not wish to hire a car we can arrange an airport pick up or you can jump on the coach or train and we will pick you up from the station.
