It was our first time in Bulgaria and having two small girls (4 and a half years and 21 months), we decided that renting a house for a few days was the best option to visit (and feel) the country. We were really surprised when we finally found the house: it was smaller than what we thought it would be and the terrace wasn't adjacent to the house (this was a annoying as we had to watch after the girls all the time). We had no hot water but Elena and John helped us from England to solve it quickly. Finally, we loved staying in this house: we had everything we needed, the mattresses were really good (except for the camp bed) and the nature around is gorgeous. The pool of the Romantica hotel had a lot of succes with our kids (10 minutes by car). Nights on the terrace were nice too... We could hear wild boars eating apples in the forest nearby and we even saw a badger in the garden. We would definitly recommend this house but suggest that Elena and John find a way to communicate directly with a local person since international calls (Belgium- Bulgaria-England) have cost us a lot.
