Bulgarian Property: Hotspot - Best Villages

Where's hot?

Nothing can beat the romance and charm of an original property in a protected Bulgarian village where traditional architecture meets modern comforts.

Kotel - a very clean and tidy small town with all facilities. Surrounded by lovely mountain views from all parts of town, accessible all year with excellent roads, dynamic mayor, twice weekly market, school, doctors, shops, restaurants, hotels. The old quarter (galata), with the original houses, is the most sought-after place to buy, although some of the later town houses are really pretty too
Jeravna - a famed village. A bit like being in a living museum and a lot of 'grockles" during the summer
Katounishte - a really pretty hamlet, so very quiet but does have two small shops for day to day items, located alongside a river so watch out for potential flooding on low-lying properties
Medven - a wonderful approach to this small village, which has a traditional mehana. Sleepy little place
Ichera - stick to the part with the original houses, small hotel at end of village with pool. Small shop in the middle

.. and not so hot
Gradets - has a large quarter which is very run-down, although definitely buy all the beautiful and cheap local stone here for your home, wonderful for patios
Neikovo - rather agricultural in feel and fairly run down but if you are looking for off the beaten track could be for you

The best about this area

Under the municipality of Sliven, a progressive municipality with really excellent roads and infrastructure. Slivent itself is a delightful large town just like an "inland Varna" and very westernised. Fantastic daily fruit and veg market, with six day a week meat and fish market. There is also a golf course at Sliven.

Just over an hour on a fast good highway from the Black Sea coast and Bourgas airport with international flights.

Quality historic houses, many listed, making excellent family homes: protected so ensures no new unsuitable building and protects your investment. A centre of history and Bulgarian culture.

Tourism is healthy, good bus services, tidy and clean, wonderful architecture, breathtaking views
