    "The photo's are spot on, the apartment was very clean and if you need anything the owner is only a phone call or e-mail away and very quick to respond to needs or questions, terrific customer service. She met us upon arrival to introduce herself, show us around the apartment and ensure we were familiar with everything. This was my wife's 50th birthday present and the city of Florence didn't let us down, it really is amazing and you can do day trips to Venice via the high speed train, Tuscany via coach (which included Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano as well as a relaxing lunch at a Chianti winery overlooking the vineyards) without the need to rent a car and many other places, it's so central and the high speed train keeps everything so close. The apartment is walking distance to the train station and in Florence you can walk to everything. We based ourselves at this lovely little apartment which had everything we needed for two weeks and did day trips. This way we didn't have to pack and carry luggage. A trip to Rome probably requires three days to see most of what you want. It's about 90 minutes via the train and there's tours for everything and very reasonably priced. Take the tours as they get you to the front of the lines for not much more money. Florence is saturated with cafe's, restaurants, bars and bistro's. We sat outside and people watched at just about all our meals. The food is absolutely amazing and it's very common to have wine with all meals which suited us just fine:). It was all very reasonably priced. There really are restaurants everywhere and it seams like every other store is a leather store. Florence is the leather capital of the world and they have some beautiful stuff. I would highly recommend this apartment, if you're used to living in 5 star hotels this may not be for you, however if you want reasonably priced accommodation that gives you everything you need in an authentic building where you can really live like the locals in a beautiful ancient city this will not disappoint. My wife and I also had our adult son and daughter with us, the twin beds in the second bedroom were perfect for them and saved us looking for a three bedroom, although there is a sofa bed in the living room if needed."

  • Amazing Bansha Castle

    "Our group of ten people spanned three generations and we used Bansha as a base for travels. It's an amazing place with seven beautifully equipped rooms - each with its own bathroom. It's has a great culinary kitchen and dining room. The outdoor heated patio was a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a drink. John & Teresa are excellent hosts and offer great recommendations. Bansha is a small town but we walked to the pub for a freshly poured Guiness on many nights! We used a Bansha Bus (Noel and Richard) so we didn't have to drive. It was great having a local guide so we could enjoy trips every days. Bansha Castle is ideally located. We made trips to Galway & the Cliffs of Mohr, Killarney & Ring of Kerry, Cork & Blarney Castle, Kinsale & Old Head Golf Course (amazing), Waterford & Wexford, and local sites like the Rock of Cashel. Amazing scenery in Ireland. We would love to come back and would definitely use Bansha Castle. It's a unique opportunity to have your own castle for a week!"

Bulgaria Travel Tips

Travelers to Bulgaria Vacation Rentals

Bulgaria has an incredibly rich cultural and historical heritage. For those interested in ancient cultures, the Middle Ages and even modern history, you will love touring the sites of Bulgaria. There are few countries in the world that can boast of artifacts and relics from pre-Biblical times. It is a destination that captures not only your interest but also your imagination. As you hear the legends of old and walk the ancient tombs, you find yourself imagining what life may have been like all that time ago. For those with an interest in art and architecture, you will find many fine examples to photograph and marvel over in Bulgaria.

Seasons to Visit Bulgaria Lodging

Bulgaria has a cold continental climate with relatively long winters and mild, short summers. Like most of Europe, the most popular travel season is during the warmer summer months. The mild days allow for outdoor exploration of the many historic and cultural sites in Bulgaria. The season starts from June and runs until early September. The busiest tourist season is during the months of July and August when many European travelers take advantage of the summer vacation period.

Bulgaria Travel Attractions

Bulgaria has a rich history that is fascinating to discover. Aside from the many historic buildings and monuments, there are several excellent museums which provide insight into the culture, traditions and military history of the Bulgarian nation. Because of its location between Europe, Asia and the Middle East, history tells that Bulgaria has had many cultural influences. Its territory was part of and subject to mighty empires such as the Thracians, Romans and Byzantines.

Today, you can visit the tombs of the Thracian Kings which are decorated with ornate sculptures, reliefs and murals. Many of these tombs are found in the Kazanluk Valley and were only discovered in the 1990s. The Haskovo region also has two tombs of notable interest, namely the Mezek Thracian Tomb and the Alexandrovo Tomb. In the Bacho Kiro Cave, which is located near the Dryanovo Monastery, flint and bone implements were found that date back to the Paleolithic Age. Gold and copper items found in the Varna Chacholithic necropolis are believed to be samples of some of the oldest processed gold in the world. Almost every age made great contributions to the country's culture and architecture. Some buildings remain standing while others are merely ruins; however, all provide valuable insight into the history of the region.

Finding Your Way to Bulgaria

The primary airport in Bulgaria is just outside of the capital city of Sofia. The Sophia International Airport hosts flights from most major European airlines. For travelers from North America, there are limited direct flights to Sofia. Most often, you will need to route via one of the major European hubs such as Frankfurt, London, Vienna or Paris. From there, you should have little difficulty finding a connecting flight. Other major airports in Bulgaria are located in Varna, Bourgas, and Plovdiv. Bulgaria has an extensive railway system and good links with the rest of Europe. In fact, traveling by train is one of the popular ways to travel to Bulgaria. You can sit back and enjoy the scenery and see much more of the country as you travel to your vacation destination. If you plan to do lots of independent exploring, your best option may be to hire a car. There are rental agencies at the airports and in most major cities. You will need a valid international driver's license as a requirement to hire a car.
