Bulgaria Village Hotels

Shiroka Luka


The village of Trigrad with its awesome gorge and caves, is the star attraction in the southwestern Rhodopes, 30 km south of Devin. The Trigrad Gorge is one of the most spectacular vistas in Bulgaria, its sheer walls overhanging the foaming Trigradska river, which disappears into the fantastic Devil's Throat cave, accessible via a 150-metre-long tunnel. The thunder of water can be heard long before you see a huge waterfall that through the enormous Roaring Hall vanishes into the canyon; objects swept into the cave are never seen again. The wild karst terrain surrounding the sprawling village of Trigrad, abounds in caves - 102 found so far. One of them, Haramiiska cave is of great interest. Trigrad is a starting point for horseback riding, biking, and hiking to the village of Mugla and the Yagodinska cave famous for its unique cave pearls and other formations, as well as for the yielded 7000 years old Neolithic implements.......see hotels


The town of Apriltsi is a municipal economic, cultural and administrative centre. It stretches out for 12 km along the Vidima and the Ostreshka rivers. The climate is moderate continental, with typical mild winter and cool summer. The combination of crisp air, sweeping woods and absence of industrial plants makes possible a year-round recreation and tourism in this attractive town tucked away in a sunny valley in the mountain. Apriltsi has an ancient history. Several mounds testify to the past existence of a Thracian settlement. Still discernable are the remains of an ancient sanctuary on the top of Ostrets.......see hotels

Located four kilometers northeast of Veliko Turnovo, the village of Arbanassi has a splendid view over the Medieval castles of Trapezitsa and Tzarevets. The village has its specific style in house-building.

Another architectural treasure of the village is the existence of five churches and two monasteries. The oldest and the most interesting one is "Rojdestvo Christovo"/"Nativity"/ church.......see hotels


The Bojenci Architectural and Ethnographic Reserve is lying roughly between Gabrovo and Tryavna,14 km northeast along the Dryanovo road. Its cluster of two-storey houses with stone roofs and wooden verandahs will take you back to the time of 18th-19th century Bulgarian village. The houses are built in the typical style of the Bulgarian Revival period when Bojenci grew prosperous through  the enterprise of its smiths, potters, and local merchants who traded as far as Hungary and Russia. There are well over a hundred listed buildings in Bozhentsi, but the main highlights are the Kashtata na Doncho Popa, the Baba Kostadinitsa House, and the various workshops used by village artisans.....see hotels
