Places of interest:
- Balchik (about 12 000 population) is a charming town, located 47 km north of Varna city. It is like an amphitheatre on the very seashore. The Royal Palace, the Botanical garden, the churches, the Museum of History together with many other attractions make Balchik one of the most visited resorts on the Black sea coast. The Balchik port played an important role in the town's development, being the third sea-side port in terms of significance after the ones in Varna and Burgas. The unique nature and the ancient history make the today's romantic charm of Balchik - a constant source of inspiration for artists, poets and artists.
- The Royal Palace and the Botanical garden in Balchik. The official name of the palace was the Quiet Nest Palace. It was constructed between 1926 and 1937, during the Romanian rule of the region, for the needs of Queen Maria of Romania. Attracted by the beauty and the romanticism of the seaside town, inspired by the centuries-old trees, the wild flowers and the bird species in the region, Queen Maria of Romania selected Balchik to build her summer residence.The palace complex consists of a number of residential villas, a smoking hall, a wine cellar, a power station, a monastery, a holy spring, a chapel and many other buildings, as well as most notably a park that is today a state-run botanical garden. In 1955 the Balchik Botanical Garden was established at the place of the palace's park. It has an area of 65,000 m² and accommodates 2000 plant species. One of the garden's main attractions is the collection of large-sized cactus species arranged outdoors on 1000 m².
- Kaliakra cape is the longest cape on the Bulgarian coast. The picturesque cape is located about 30 km north from Balchik. Kaliakra cape stretches 2 km deep into the sea and consists of 60-70 m high limestone rocks, the inaccessibility of which has been the main reason for the construction of an ancient fortress named Tirisis there. According to local tradition forty girls, the sole survivors of a Turkish attack, tied their long plaits of hair together and jumped to their deaths, rather than be raped by the victors. Nowadays Kaliakra is a nature reserve, where dolphins, shags and a numbers of typical steppe birds can be observed, it is one of the very good birdwatching sites in Bulgaria.
- Kavarna town is one of the relatively bigger towns along the Black Sea coast with its population of a bit over 12 200. On the high hill of Chirakman, which is 3 km away from Kavarna, still can be seen remains of Roman fortresses and medieval town. Kavarna, recognised today as the Rock capital of Bulgaria with so many concerts of world famous bands and artists like Apocalyptica, Deep Purple, Saxxon, Ronnie James Dio, Scorpions, Accept, Destruction, Gamma Rey and Victory, turns into an attractive place for a holiday, combining the modern comfort with a unique atmosphere, at the same time preserving its tranquility and charm.
- Durankulak and Shabla lakes - The Durankulak lake was declared a protected area in 1983 as part of the measures for the preservation of endangered species. It is also where one of the two major birth migration routes passes - the so-called “Via Pontika”. Near the lakes of Shabla and Durankulak there are law-protected damp areas of international importance. These territories are the most significant winter quarters in Europe for many water birds. The Shabla Lake is one of the biggest habitats of the White Water Lily and Yellow Water Lily in Bulgaria. The lakes give shelter also to the Otter, which is a rare animal species in Europe.

England01.02.2014"A holiday house for a comfortable and relaxing time"
The interior of the House is very lovely. We have been there already two times and would spend our holidays there again at any time. There are nice places of interest like the Botanical Garden and Cape Kaliakra. The location of the house is very quit, so we had a relaxing time. The house and the outdoor facilities are very well-kept and not forgetting the private pool - simply great.
At the Marina in Balschik are nice restaurants, so we enjoyed several tasty meals for little money.
We just felt very comfortable there!
England15.07.2014"Beautiful Holiday in an beautiful House in Sokolovo"
We had a great and relaxing holiday in Sokolovo. The house is beautiful and offers plenty of space and nothing was missing. It is very modern and has a sore beautiful pool. The garden invites you to relax.
The neighbors are all very nice and let us enjoy our holiday vacation.
For bathing, we mostly used Albena beach or the goldenbeach, which can be reached both by car from Sokolovo.
Shopping and eating we have been mostly in Balchik, the neighboring town of Sokolovo with his beautiful harbor promenade.
The house offers space for grilling, if you want.
For young people: a visit to the Goldenbeach in the evening can be very funny, this is the party area Bulgaiens.
In Bulgaria there is internet in every restaurant and at every gas station.
I would book again and again the house for family holidays as well girls holiday excellent. Bulgaria has a lot to offer. The sea is gorgeous, the beaches great, the people friendly and there is a lot to discover.
Thank you to the owner for the very friendly contact and easy rental. It was great. We wish all the best and will come back.
