Country village home near Sevlievo Gabrovo
from £20 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Escape from the modern world to the village of Lovnidol in Central Bulgaria. For the ultimate getaway from the noise, stress and bustle of everyday life. Situated in the foothills of the Central Balkans, our accommodation consists of a self contained double bedroom with a modern ensuite bathroom, plus a small dining/kitchenette. A welcome pack of basic food items will be provided for you. Our property is in a very quiet position out of the way on the side of the village, on an unmade road leading to fields.
Lovnidol is approximately three hours from Sofia and Varna, three and a half hours from Bourgas, and 45 minutes from the old capital of Veliko Tarnovo. Ideally situated in the very centre of the country. Our nearest towns are Sevlievo, 15 minutes away, and Gabrovo, 25 minutes away, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants.
You can experience life in a rural village, waking up to the sound of cockerels and birdsong, where the passing traffic is a tractor or the occasional donkey and cart. There is a limited bus service to Sevlievo if needed, but your own transport would be better for sightseeing. Accompanied trips can be arranged, if required. The village has 2 small general grocery shops, a post office and a typical village café/restaurant.
The main house has a large garden with flowers and vegetables around, where you can just relax in the sun, or for the more active there is a good fishing lake on the outskirts of the village, with plenty of opportunities for walking and sightseeing in the area. There is WiFi access if you can't be separated from your computer.
We are a retired English couple enjoying the peace and tranquility village life has to offer and we look forward to welcoming you to Lovnidol. If you decide to stay with us, we will do our best to ensure you have a holiday to remember.

The Gabrovo Province region
The region consists of miles and miles of unspoiled countryside with a few villages in between 2 or 3 small towns. There are mountains, lakes and many opportunities for walking, fishing, sightseeing, or just relaxing. There are small shops and some nice restaurants in the nearby towns.
Summer temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius in july and August with very good weather from May to September. Of course the weather can't be guaranteed these days, but generally we have a wonderful climate. The coast is a 3 hour drive away.
There are several monasteries, historic villages, a castle and other interesting sites within an hour of our village. A trip to the Black Sea would take 3-4 hours depending on your destination. A good fishing lake lies on the outskirts of the village and costs about £1.00 a day.
