“Old traditional Bulgarian village house, wonderfully renovated by the hosts. You still feel the old atmosphere and spirit, but with the comfort of a new house, all needed amenities and stylish touches and details everywhere. The yard, garden and outside barbeque are also great and well designed and maintained. Overall a great place and very kind and nice hosts. Communication was good, they waited late in the evening to assist with check-in and werw very helpful and kind at all times. Definitely recommend Milena's place to anyone visiting Apriltsi. It's the best acxomodation you can find there, especially if you want to feel the magical atmosphere of the "old days". Thank you and all the best!”

“The house of Martin's mother is very typical of the Bulgarian hinterland, if you want the authentic, you are at the right place. The house is rustic but it makes the immersion even more enjoyable. Small flat if you want a "private" house. It is more of a "collocation" with the inhabitant than a whole and private housing. But once you're familiar with it, it's very pleasant.”

“First of all, it was pleasure meeting Kalin and Maya. They are young intelligent family, which renovated this typical Bulgarian house in beautiful region in the Central Balcans. The area is absolutely calm, the air is pure and the view is splendid (from inside and outside the house). The night sky is breathtaking. Our family of 5 spent there 2 enjoyable weeks. The house inside is in traditional Bulgarian style, so cozy and all details have been carefully thought. Maya and Kalin were nice to bring us a couple of times fresh cheese, yogurt milk and vegetables from local producer. There are a lot of small villages and monasteries to visit, river to swim, very nice bar on open air next to the river and a lot of hiking paths. We experienced also a water infiltration in the kitchen due to abundant rain in the first 3 days, power block for some hours per day for 3 days, since there was a cable replacement, lack of water for one night due to water-pipe rapture. However in all occasions Kalin, Maya and some neighbors were there to assist with all necessary. And we even did not feel any inconvenient, being somehow all these part of natural lifestyle. The place is also perfect for a long or short-term retreat. It would be nice from you if you bring biodegradable washing products to respect all this beautiful surroundings. ”
