“Brilliant service” We have stayed in this apartment for the last three sucessive years. The property itself is a one bed apartment , extremely spacious and well furnished. It has always been very comfortable, well heated with underfloor heating in the bathroom/wet room. It is centrally located approximately 100 metres from the gondola, close to all amenities. The whole holiday experience is enormously enhanced by the extra service provided by the owner Yvonne. Each time we have travelled she has organised taxis to and from the airport at a reasonable price. She has also organised ski school,equipment hire etc with the ski depot which is located in the basement of the Flora apartment building allowing us to hop in the lift each morning and be in our ski boots within minutes. we have always been met on arrival and in addition Yvonne has always met us the following morning and introduced us to to our instructor for that year. This is lady with tremendous organisational skills and what she says is written in stone. Deposits have been returned to our bank immediately upon our arrival home. This is a package vacation without the cost of a tour operator and far more efficient. We look forward to many more happy memories spent on the Borovets slopes.
“Great place off the beaten track” We spent a wonderful week at villa Laska in August 2012. The house offers everything you need – comfortable beds, nice bedrooms (one with balcony) very well equipped kitchen (with large fridge and freezer, microwave, ceramic hot plate…) washing machine and line as well as iron. There is no TV reception but you can watch your DVDs or choose from a large selection available. If you want to stay connected to the world there is a free WLAN in and around the house.
There is plenty of space around the house (2 terraces). And then there is the view over the Black Sea– just marvellous. I particularly loved relaxing on a long chair underneath the almond tree and enjoying the slight breeze (we had 32C+ during the whole week).
This is a perfect place if you want to be away from the big tourist resorts. It’s a bit remote (even though the traffic noise from the street behind ban be a bit annoying depending on the wind and the time oft he day), but only 5 minutes by car to the beach and the town of Kranevo where you find enough supermarkets, shops and restaurants.
The house is very well managed by a very nice and friendly English couple, offering any help or support you might need.
“What a fantastic holiday, will be back next year.” Had a brilliant holiday, complex and apartment were excellent. Booking this apartment with Diane was really easy, she also arranged transfers for us and gave us lots of useful information about the resort. The location of this complex is right in the centre of sunny beach. Enjoyed the holiday so much we've booked with Diane to return next year, will also be taking family members to stay in the barcelo with us. Look forward to returning next year.
Bulgaria, situated in Southeast Europe and occupying the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula, has become an increasingly popular tourist destination in recent decades. From skiing in the Rhodope Mountains to beach relaxation on the Black Sea Coast, a holiday in Bulgaria promises a wide variety of landscapes and places of interest. Rent a self catering ski chalet in a Bulgaria ski resort (try Bansko or Borovets), or stay in an apartment or villa in Sunny Beach or Varna for a more Mediterranean atmosphere, great night life and the famous Varna Archaeological Museum. For a city break, rent accommodation in the capital, Sofia – one of Europe’s oldest cities and, along with Bulgaria’s many UNESCO World Heritage landmarks, a must for culture vultures.

Lovely peaceful holiday
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in starfish accommodation the last two weeks in August. We had a lovely peaceful stay. The accommodation was clean and tidy with everything we needed. The pool and gardens were beautifully kept and very quiet, most of the time we were the only people around the pool. A lovely break with lots of lovely food and lots of alcohol !!
We will definitely be back xx …
Akratoria Holiday Apartments
Quiet, comfortable, well equipped, good location.
Location is good,
3 sandy, shallow beaches very close, one less than 5 mins away but a steep hill.
tip, the beach past the ferry has cushions on its sunbeds!
Old Nessebar just a short (65p) bus ride, bus stop 2 mins from apartment.
buses frequent (except the open top tour bus which advertises 24 hrs but operates 10-11 am and after 5pm)!
All other buses were pretty good, we travelled to Elinite, St Vllas, Sunny beach, Pomorie and Rada easily.
From Old Nessebar there is a road train (posh tractor thing) which goes to Sunny Beach for £2 or frequent boat taxis.
Boat taxi from nearest beach to apartment to Nessebar was fun.£5
Boat taxis go from Pomorie to islands.
Old Nessebar was lovely, cobbled streets, loads of restaurants looking out to sea.
street vendors and various artists, there was a singing completion final held over 3 days in the old theatre which was free and good to sit and watch for half an hour as the sun went down, singers came from all over Bulgaria for this final. Musician was playing a bag pipe thing at the entrance the the old city. Violinist busking too.
All good fun and lovely to walk past in the cooler night air. Loads of shops too.
I guess the council will organise events in the old theatre to attract tourists from nearby sunny beach etc.
Apartment was spacious and clean. Very well equipped with plenty of towels and linen. Cannot fault it, even a parasol if you want to go and lie on a towel rather than hire a sun bed on the beach, they were about £15 for 2 beds plus parasol for the day.
And comfy beds- a must if going for 2 weeks like us!!
Pool area was clean, pool was lovely and as this isn't a big complex I was often the only one swimming.
A lovely touch was the washing up liquid and dishcloth provided.
We reported a minor repair and it was sorted quickly.
If you are looking for a quiet place to have a holiday yet within easy reach of good restaurants, places to visit, with a nice pool and lovely beach nearby this would be a good choice.
If you are wanting action packed promenade with hire bikes zooming around, happy hour adverts every couple of yards and crowds of people, this will not be a good choice! …
We have just had a wonderful holiday for 2 weeks, in the lovely surroundings of this villa. On arrival we had an extremely warm reception, food made for us and drinks from our two fantastic hosts.
The hosts live on site on the bottom floor of the villa, but they never encroached on our holiday- they were wonderful and would do anything for us; took in our washing, made loads of home cooked food for us, kept everything tidy and clean and helped out with advice.
They didn’t speak a word of English and vice versus but we managed!
On our departure they presented my little toddler with a teddy, a box of chocolates for us all to share and coffee’s for all.
The villa and pool were lovely, the kitchen facilities were fairly basic- with an outdoor bbq, gas burner and small oven.
The area of Balchik is fairly quiet, but a lovely town, loads of restaurants at the marina and a cocktail bar.
Overall we had a fabulous holiday and sad to be home!!! …
3 Bed Apartment overlooking pool, sea views
Nessebar view complex apartments
Tim was an excellent host, apartment was clean with full air conditioning in each room. Essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, toilet rolls etc.. were at the apartment on our arrival. Complex was quiet and peaceful. Short drive to sunny beach, not far from Kosharitsa. Bulgaria is a lovely country with so much to do and See. Highly recommend that a car is hired to really take in the sights that the country has to offer. Very affordable place to live for the EU …

Kalia apartment A9 Sunny beach Bulgaria
Just arrived back from a wonderful first stay in Bulgaria, It was a last minute booking, and it didn't disappoint. The apartment is a true home from home, very clean, spacious, light and airy and has everything you may need for your stay. Two large balconies which have the sun for most of the day as does the pool.
The complex and pool area are kept clean and very well presented, comfy sunbeds too and always available. It has key fob entry and the added benefit of 24hr security staff who always acknowledged us as we went in and out. It is in a great location, a few restaurants the Bolero across the road was superb and supermarkets on the doorstep, but only 10 mins walk to other restaurants and the beach is just a short walk also.
A visit to Nessebar is a must, very scenic and some lovely restaurants, The Old Sailor being my favourite and many shops to browse in . You can catch the local bus ( bus No 1 is best) just around the corner it cost 1.50 LEV for both one way, or you can walk along the beach, catch the noddy train or open top bus.
Tony was quick to respond to any questions and arranged our transfers.
We had a fabulous stay, very quiet and relaxing just what we needed, thanks again Tony for all your help with the booking, we would love to return.
Regards Diane & Andy …
