Further details outdoors

The Watermill complex is built in a traditional Bulgarian style and opened in Summer 2005. The pool and integral children's pool are at the centre of the landscaped gardens and are conveniently located infront of the restaurant which serves breakfast, drinks and snacks as well as full meals.

The restaurant is frequented by both locals and tourists and is popular with families as the children can play safely in the complex play area whilst the adults enjoy a relaxing meal and drink.

The complex is part of the Dinevi resort and as such the facilities of other complexes are available for use including swimming pools, tennis courts, internet cafe, piano bar and several restaurants.

About this location

The Burgas Province region

Bulgaria is situated in the Balkan peninsula on the western shores of the Black Sea.

The Black Sea Coast has an average temperature in the summer of 28 degrees Celsius. There are more than 240 hours of sunshine in May and September and more than 300 in July and August. A refreshing breeze comes off the sea making even the hottest days feel comfortable.

Many of Bulgaria's beaches, including Sunny Beach, have been awarded the EU Blue Flag and the waters are calm providing safe conditions for swimming.

Sveti Vlas

St Vlas is a coastal town situated at the foot of the Stara Planina Mountain range. The natural presence of the mountain, forest and sea together provide for a healthy and relaxed atmosphere. There are three sandy beaches all within walking distance of the apartment.

The nightlife in Sveti Vlas is centred around eating, drinking and relaxing. For a livelier nightlife the clubs and bars of Sunny Beach are a 10 minutes bus or taxi ride away.

A 5 minute stroll from the Watermill takes you to the main street to Sveti Vlas Town Square. Along the way there are numerous tavernas offering local cuisine at very reasonable prices as well as small shops and several mini markets.

The recently built Marina is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment. From here you can set sail on a morning or evening cruise around the bays of the Black Sea. Full day cruises are also available. Water taxis sail every hour across the bay to the ancient town of Old Nessebar.

Catch a bus 100m from the apartment to the resort of Sunny Beach. Here you will find plenty to entertain the children and adults alike. Wander the mainly pedestrianised streets and shop in the market, commission a portrait from the local artists or simply relax in the local bars and restaurants. Sunny Beach is “exactly what is says on the tin”, 7km of fine golden sand which has been awarded an EU Blue Flag. A promenade divides the beach from the main thoroughfare so no cars drive around the beach area.

Take a taxi, bus or water taxi to the ancient town of Nessebar. Wander around the cobbled streets and admire the historical architecture of the ancient building and churches. Shop for souvenirs in the street markets or purchase local crafts from the outdoor market.

There are three water parks all within a 20 minute taxi ride of the apartment. The closest of these is at Elenite which is a 10 minute journey up the coast, the others are near Sunny Beach and Nessebar.

The cities of Bourgas and Varna are accessible via the coast road and offer good shopping facilities. In June Varna holds the International Theatre Festival and later in June and July the Varna Music Festival.

Further afield are the country's 10 National Parks the closest of which is Strandzha Park. Other places worth a visit are Sozopol, Sofia and Veliko Turnovo (the old capital of Bulgaria). Two-day trips can also be arranged to Istanbul from Sunny Beach.

Scuba Diving, thermal and mud spas as well as horse riding, quad bikes and other sports are available in several towns on the Black Sea Coast.

We tried river kayaaking in 2012 which is run by a couple from the UK. Highly recommended. They will collect you from the apartment and transport you to the river. Really enjoyable and you can also do a quad bike trip on the same day as they are close by and work with the company who run this.

travelled to this apartment in july for a fortnight, this was sold as luxury apartment ?? "far from it" we were told we would have tv ? wifi ? and apartments were managed ? .after waiting fo… More

I have only just read this review and am shocked an upset by the comments made. I tried to contact the reviewer to discuss his issues but was completely ignored. Whilst the comment about the lack of TV and wifi are to some extent valid (the advert has now been updated to clarify that the TV is only provided for use with the DVD player and wifi is available only in the communal areas of the apartment) the reviewers other comments are totally unjustified and I believe are as a result of us withholding some of the damages deposit due to extra cleaning following the state the apartment was left in by these guests. We have rented this apartment out for years and NEVER had any complaints nor have we every seen the need to withold any damages deposit. I would ask that if you have been influenced into not booking our apartment by this UNFAIR review that you contact me so I can hopefully give you some reassurances.
