Location

The villas are located in the village of Tzareva Polyana, (King’s Meadow, at the foothills of the Eastern Rodhope Mountains, 21 kilometers from the City of Haskovo and 30 kilometers from the City of Kardjali. They are both easily accessible via highways from Sofia International Airport (250km or 2 and ½ hours via car).
The village has a permanent population of approximately 250 people. The working population commute to Haskovo or are farmers, the rest are retirees. There are a few shops, one of which supplies groceries. It is also recommended to try the locally grown products such as eggs, milk, cheese, chicken and beef as well as all sorts of vegetables and fruits.

The village of Tzareva Polyana has some local attractions. There is a renovated church, a newly built chapel on the hill overlooking the village called St. George, an older chapel and a small isolated chapel in the nearby forest. Visiting these Christian sanctuaries is recommended by foot or bikes which can be used free of charge by our guests.

Also we offer All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) which are again 4x4s so they can be used in any type of weather, snow, sun or rain.

The area surrounding the villas is extremely quiet and offers unique experiences in any type of season. You can take a dip in the pool, spend time in the sauna and hot tub, or enjoy the gym. In the evening, you can cook your own dinner or ask us to cook it for you and dine in your own villa. There is also barbeque located in the backyard.

Seasons

The view from each of the bedrooms is spectacular during all seasons. The snow and the mountains during the winter provide an excellent opportunity to try out the fireplace which heats up the radiators in the villa. After April, the green color starts to return while the grass starts to grow, the trees blossom, the birds start to come around and the storks can be observed from your balcony. As mentioned before in the summer time when the weather is fine, or so the song goes…, the pool is just outside your doorstep and the privacy of having your own pool and sharing it only with residents of the other two villas enables you to swim and sunbathe. In Autumn, the view outside changes dramatically. The trees, grass, the hills and the meadows all turn brownish, while the weather still is warm, providing an opportunity to jog, walk, cycle or just watch the spectacular hills outside. You can also enjoy the weather outside while having breakfast, lunch or dinner on your own porch or at the backyard barbeque.
