The house is literally perched on the edge of the mountain at the top end of a small mountain village. The village, Kosovo (means Blackbird and not to be confused with the country!), is 50 kilometres south of Plovdiv, off the main road towards the well known ski resort, Pamporovo, a further 50 km south. The nearest small town (6 km via the mountain road or an hour and a half walk) is Narechenski Bani, famous for it's mineral water springs. Primarily of interest to walkers, bird watchers and those seeking to really get away from it all, the area also offers a wealth of historical and archaeological sites. Bachkevo Monastery is within easy reach as is the Kormishosh Reserve (bear, deer, wild boar) where horse riding is available.
Guests are supported by English-speaking Bulgarians who can collect you from the airport (either Plovdiv or Sofia) and also organise trips, guided walks and a range of activities.
