About the property

Botev Houses

The picturesque Botev Houses are located in the outskirts of the rural village of Mirovets: a slanting, hilly landscape in northeastern Bulgaria.

All of the three houses were renovated in a traditional Bulgarian style, though all of them provide contemporary comfort. The Botev Houses are embedded in a 1-hectare private property with a swimming pool.

Each of them has a wonderful view of the surrounding landscapes.

It's the perfect place to trade tension and stress for a refreshing share of 'sweet doing nothing'.

Mirovets has a view of the Beli Lom Lake, which is 9 km long and forms an attraction pole for a large variety of waterfowls.

The village is known as 'the stork village’: every spring storks arrive to build their nests on the lamp posts that tower above Mirovets’ rooftops. All summer long, you can see these majestic birds floating with graceful wing beat, through the valleys or high in the sky. A feast for the eyes!

Tourism in north-eastern Bulgaria:

Sreburna UNESCO biosphere reserve (west of Silistra)

The reserve contains some wetlands and a freshwater lake, one kilometre south of the Danube River. It is one of Bulgaria's main wild bird habitats. The species living there are, amongst others: ducks, herons, cormorants, spoonbills and Dalmatian pelicans.

Balchik and Kaliakra (north of Varna)

Balchik is a romantic costal town with picturesque alleys and houses. A bit more outside of the town lies former Romanian queen Marie’s palace, surrounded by a beautiful botanic garden.

Not too far from Balchik you will find Kaliakra: a rocky point with red limestone cliffs, sticking out 2 km into the sea. Ruins of a fortress that throughout history was controlled by Greeks, Romans, Bulgarians and Ottomans, still remain.

Nesebar (north of Burgas)

The old town of Nesebar, located on a rocky peninsula, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its origin dates back till the Thracians. This town with its traditional and historical houses, churches and monuments, breathes a unique atmosphere.

Thracian tomb of Sveshtari (west of Isperih)

The tomb (dating from the 3th century CE) was not discovered until 1982. Its murals and caryatids offer a unique view on ancient Thracian architecture.

Madara (east of Shumen)

Madara is a historical village at the foot of some sheer cliffs. On top of one of these cliffs, the remarkable 8th or 9th-century relief of the Madara Rider (UNESCO World Heritage) watches over the village.

The Tombul Mosque in Shumen

With its understated courtyard, the Ottoman Tombul Mosque is the biggest in-use mosque of Bulgaria.

Veliko Tarnovo

According to many Bulgarians Veliko Tarnovo is the most authentic Bulgarian city: it represents the country’s rich past. This city wonderfully located up in the mountains and offers beautiful architecture and a wealth of historical sites. Moreover, Veliko Tarnovo is cosy yet vivid during both day and night.

Bozhentsi (east of Gabrovo)

Bozhentsi is located in the middle of the forests, at the foot of the Balkans. It is a small village –also included in the monuments list – and displays clinker streets and stone tiles. Over 100 restored houses now serve as a museum, shop, guesthouse or inn.

Etara (south of Gabrovo)

Etara is an ethnographic open-air museum where one can get acquainted with traditional Bulgarian architecture and furnishing, old water techniques and handicrafts.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house full of character in a lovely setting with a great pool. Wifi was good around the property. You can go on a horse and cart ride as it shows you the local area, village, lakes and storks. The owners were really helpful and full of fasinating local knowledge. We have teenage children so goi to popular beeches was a must and it was an easy 1 hour drive to the coast. We also visited some of the local towns in the area.

We had a fantastic five day stay on or small tour of bulgaria and would fully recommend this place.

An emotional holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Mirovets was magnificient. I am really thankful to you for repairing Botev houses. Thanks to you, we had a chance to stay in the houses of our grandparents. We were really emotional. . Botev House II was very clean, the rooms were decorated beautifully and the beds were very comfortable We couldn’t swim in the pool because of the cold weather but my husband did. We want to stay there again sometime when it's warmer. Thank you very much Dominique.

Excellant séjour en Bulgarie Authentique

  • 5 of 5

Très bon accueil par Dominique et Jean les propriétaires qui parlent français et peuvent vous donner tous les renseignements utiles.

Boteve 2 est une ancienne maison typique toute restaurée et très bien équipée.

Belle piscine et jolie vue.

C'est le point de départ pour de très belles promenades à pied ou en voiture proche d'un lac.

A recommander pour une découverte de la Bulgarie Authentique...

Een prachtige vakantie op een pracht locatie!

  • 5 of 5

Met hele gezin van 7 personen zijn wij 10 dagen verbleven in dit prachtige vakantiehuis. Het was een vakantie om gauw weer over te doen. Met het prachtige uitzicht, mooi zwembad en goeie locatie waren wij van alle gemakken voorzien. Het huis beschikte over alle faciliteiten zoals 2 toiletten en 2 douches wat met zo'n grote groep geen overbodige luxe is. Het huis was netjes en schoon. Mirovets ligt prachtig gelegen tussen 3 grote steden waardoor het makkelijk is om er even met de auto een dagje tussenuit te gaan. De hoofdstad van Bulgarije Varna is te bereiken met de auto wat ongeveer anderhalf uur rijden is, een echte aanrader! Hier is het ook mogelijk om een hotel te boeken zodat je een paar dagen aan zee kan vertoeven om vervolgens weer heerlijk terug te keren naar de rust in Mirovets.

De eigenaren waren vriendelijk en - ondanks dat wij laat aankwamen - hebben zij ons het huis laten zien, zodat wij van alles op de hoogte waren.

Een fantastische vakantie die we gauw weer keer over gaan doen!

terug in de tijd op een magnifieke locatie

  • 5 of 5

Botev is een unieke ervaring voor wie van natuur en rust houdt. Dit plekje is zeker niet toeristisch maar eerder een thuiskomen in het leven van 100 jaar geleden. Het huisje is comfortabel ingericht in de stijl van de streek. Op een half uurtje rijden kan je echter een moderne stad vinden waar alles voorradig is.De natuur is wondermooi, het uitzicht vanaf het zwembad adembenemend. Dit een ideale plek om te ontstressen en te herbronnen. De plaatselijke bevolking is erg vriendelijk en als je het geluk hebt dat de eigenaars ter plaatse zijn krijg je ook heel wat tips voor bezoekjes en evenementen in de wijde omgeving. Met onze oudere kinderen deden wij heel wat uitstapjes die de moeite waren. Een etentje in een plaatselijk restaurant is zeker aan te bevelen, het is lekker en niet duur.

Wij hebben enorm genoten van deze vakantie en komen zeker terug!
