A traditional Bulgarian peasant's mountain cottage lovingly retored, with traditional character but a modern bathroom.
The whole timber framed house is available with many traditional folklore items and features.
It has a paved patio and balcony for open air dining with pleasant views.
The 2000squ m garden is private and surrounded by forest close to the mountains.
The walking is spectacular.
There are nearby restaurants. The nearest (3km) has swimming pools (small fee) and a play area.

The space

There are wood burning stoves in each room. Logs are provided.
Try an open fire in the huge hearth to relax in the evening.
The paved patio is sheltered by an old stone wall and sun loungers are available. It is spectacularly quiet as the road is screened by trees and close enough to be convenient but not close enough to be heard.

Guest access

The whole house and 2000squ m of garden, the balcony and patio is exclusively yours for your stay.

Interaction with guests

I am available in nearby Kravenik some of the time and am always available on the telephone for advice and translation.

Other things to note

Walking and restaurants the White house.

The best restaurants are in Ostrets.
Drive to the square and turn left. First left again up hill leads to 2 good restaurants.
Alternatively continue past the left turn and a restaurant is signposted to the right. Follow the signs. It is very good. It also has a swimming pool. Most of the restaurants have internet.

This road from Ostrets also takes you into the mountains. It gets a bit rough but keep going and you follow a river which is on your right. There are excellent places for picnic where you can cool off in pools in the river.
There is good walking straight from the white house. Just take the track back in direction Tabashco and explore. I have seen wild boar in the forest higher up and there are also bear. These are not as dangerous as the Bulgarian drivers.

The location of this characteristic house is beautiful, great experience. However, the beds were very basic.

This is an old country house that has been renovated and sits on a quiet hillside near the village of Kravenik. Even though secluded there is one other house next door and I spent a nice evening with the neighbors who told me all about their lives (in a mixture of Bulgarian and Russian) and even invited me over for dinner and took me for a walk to see the mountain views nearby. The house has some interesting features of its period like the big open fireplace. There is also a large balcony and a patio. The best part about my stay here was the local walking - absolutely fantastic scenery, beautiful forest and river, highly recommend this area if you enjoy nature and quiet.
