Villa in The Vineyards Resort, Nr. Nessebar, Bulgaria - The Vineyards 5 Star Resort, 10 Minutes From The Beach
- english, french
Striving to make my guests enjoy as much as possible their holiday. For the fifth year of renting out the villa, I only received very nice feedbacks, but I keep trying to improve it!
Corinne purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Corinne chose Aheloy
An unknown but culturally very rich and interesting country with a beautiful landscape. The proximity of the sea, the countryside and the mountains makes the location very pleasant. The resort is close to very popular and famous places, but still remote enough to enjoy the quietness and the numerous migrating birds.
What makes this Villa unique
Staying at the property is incredibly relaxing and the setting, with the view on the countryside and on the sea is beautiful. At the same time, when people (my young adults children for example) want to have fun, they can also have it in the resort and on the nearby beaches.

Lovely Spacious Villa
With it's pleasant peaceful location Corrine's villa was an ideal base for our 9 day stay near the Black Sea coast which we booked primarily to observe autumnal bird migration along the 'Via Pontica' route.
Thank you, David and Anita. I was delighted to have you as guests and to benefit from your bird expertise.
Perfect for small families
Well-located and well-appointed, this villa ticks all of a small family's ‘holiday boxes’.
The pool is clean and a perfect size for a small family, maintained to a high standard by being cleaned at least twice a day (!). The inside of the villa is spacious and comfortable, the open-plan kitchen / dining / living area offering a relaxed and practical area for a lunchtime escape from the heat or a relaxing family dinner. As for the neighbouring villas then yes, they are quite close, but the one downhill from us was long-term unoccupied at the present and the uphill one was host to two friendly family groups in our eleven days there. You may however occasionally hear the quaint traditional sound of the Dutch boys’ stag do arriving home from Sunny Beach as it permeates your dawn slumbers.
As for the food and drink in the environs then a short drive (or taxi) to Nesebar Old Town or Medovo both work very well, as does the two-minute walk to the smaller of the two onsite restaurants. Our favourites were Old Andromeda in Nesebar and the exquisite Crystal Bar in Medovo (try the rabbit). Slightly further then Sveti Vlas offers a selection of ‘Sunny Beach +’ dining options, mostly around the marina, and Burgas is only a short drive and probably worth it in the end, although cities will be cities.
The Thursday market in Kableshkovo, despite much hype, was a tad naff. Our adopted taxi driver for the week, Danny from Moss Side, described it perfectly as a ‘car boot with a few bits of fruit’. Still, if you are still searching for that reconditioned four-valve 6.5 HP Kohler OHV engine for your old trusted lawnmower then you just may find that perfect bargain.
Having the larger communal hotel pool, bars and restaurants on site was one of the draws that took us to Aheloy, and it worked out OK in the end. The smaller of the two restaurants was very good, so much so that we patronised it three times. The larger restaurant is undoubtedly of lower quality but still palatable. As for the pool and bar area then we only went a couple of times as it wasn’t what we were expecting, but don’t take our word for it, who knows, you may be the sort of person who is entertained by the old dear in the wheelchair in ITV’s Benidorm.
All-in-all, a fine holiday, one of our better ones most likely, all garnished with friendly and efficient communication with Corinne. But don’t just take our word for it as the other positive testimonies on this site convey.
Thank you, Phil, for your exhaustive and colourful description of your Bulgarian experience :) This will for sure be very useful to future guests !
I hope to have the Opportunity to welcome you again in the future.
We found the journey from the airport straight forward and were greeted with the keys on arrival.
We selected this villa so we could enjoy the peace and quiet that villa accommodation allows but also so our teenage girls had access to the extra facilities the hotel provided. We enjoyed the pool bar and both restaurants as well as treating ourselves to massages.
The villa was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. We were able to pick up supplies from the hotel shop for the first day and then we got a taxi to the nearby supermarket for 30LV.
The private pool was great and was cleaned regularly although a little cold for me the kids loved it. There was a basket full of floats to lounge on.
We didn't hire a car as we fancied having a few drinks in the evening but managed to get cheap taxi transfers to Nessebar (which is gorgeous) and Sunny Beach (good for shopping, clubbing, cheap meals and drinks).
Overall this was a great holiday, very relaxing and Corrinne was great to deal with.
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure hosting you.
Lovely well maintained villa in a peaceful location within easy reach of Nessabar and beach areas.
This peaceful villa property with pool situated on the outskirts of the Vineyards Resort overlooks fields of sunflowers, the town of Nessebar and the sea in the distance and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. Lidl supermarket is a short drive away from the resort where you can buy any groceries you may require during your stay, (Taxis are very cheap). The resort’s amenities are available to use if you want. Thoroughly recommended.
Dear Anne and Bob, thank you for your review and for choosing to spend your holiday at 18 Cabernet again.
I am looking forward to welcoming you a fourth time in 2020 ! ;)
This villa has everything we could possibly need for a wonderful week in Bulgaria.
The pool was very clean and the friendly pool maintenance chap came everyday to keep it spotless. Our children 4 and 2 loved it.
Outide there is also a great bbq and loads of seats. The gardens are well maintained. Bulgarian roses everywhere.
The villa was very well equipped with everything we needed.
We had a car and so easy to do the 5 min drive to Lidl for supplies. Easy access to the beach by car and 2 waterparks just down the road.
The only unfortunate aspect was that the villa backs onto a field of sunflowers and they will definitely bloom next week!
Thank you so much for your kind comments, Jo.
I hope to welcome you again next year,...so that you could see the sunflowers blooming ;)
