Our family run, modern, luxury apartments are located on the shore of Lake Kardzhali. With construction finished in 2017 we are happy to welcome couples, families and large groups (up to 12).
Take a dip in the lake or plunge pool in summer to cool off or take a kayak or rowing boat out. Free breakfast is included. We organize trips to many nearby natural & historic sights. Free parking is available as is free wifi throughout the estate. Guests have access to a self-service bar at the lakeside.

The space

The estate is surrounded by forest on one side, grassland on the other and a lake at the front. The area boasts numerous natural and historic sights of interest and is largely unvisited by tourists. We organize trips to Perperikon (affectionately known as the Machu Picchu of Europe), Tatul (Orpheus' tomb), Thasos (Greek Island) and many more, please see our website for more on this. Boating trips in a zodiac and fishing opportunities can be arranged for guests as well as transfers from Sofia, Kavala, Plovdiv & Alexandroupolis airports or other locations if needed. The entire estate is fenced off and not open to the general public so privacy is assured.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire estate. It is fenced and not open to the general public so privacy is assured. The lake is directly accessible. A rowing boat, kayaks, bicycles can be hired for a small fee. There is a plunge pool located on the property as well as a self-service bar at the lakeshore.

The apartment itself consists of 4 bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin and one bunk) as well as a studio & large living room with kitchen and 2 large balconies with views of the lake.

Interaction with guests

There is always someone available on the estate if needed. We speak English, Dutch, German, Bulgarian & Turkish fluently as well as basic Spanish, French & Russian.

Other things to note

The apartments are located somewhat off the grid and although they can be reached with normal cars we advise an off road vehicle if possible (for the last 2 kilometers which is a dirt road).

John's place is in a stunning and private location right by the lake. The apartments are super spacious, clean and well equipped. And John could have not been more helpful and hospitable - he sorted us out with a BBQ by the lake, transport to Plovdiv, and even a trip to the Perperikon. We had a really relaxing stay in this little-visited part of Bulgaria. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a tucked away spot to kick back.

John is very hospitable. Every day we had fresh food, amazing handmade bread etc. Also hosts kindly brought us what we wanted to have like candles etc. The views from the windows are really inspirational. If you find a quiet place for the total relax - it's the best!

This is a spot we would like to keep for us because it is so special but we can't do this to John... He is so friendly and generous with his guests. This place looks like PARADISE. Situated in the middle of the nature, the view on the lake is wonderful. Appartement is new and spacious. Our best stop in Bulgaria! Un endroit fantastique pour ceux qui veulent vivre un tourisme différent. Au bout d'un chemin qui semble ne mener nulle part, la magnifique maison toute neuve aux belles terrasses sur le lac. Un accueil très chaleureux de John et sa famille. Il nous a permis de faire du kayak sur le lac et était particulièrement attentif à ce que nous passions un excellent séjour. Il fournit un copieux petit déjeuner compris dans le prix. Une toute bonne adresse en Bulgarie! Sans hésiter!

We loved our short stay at Lakeside! It is well and truly off the beaten track, about 30mins into the hills from Khardzali. John's instructions were excellent, and he was very welcoming, helpful and friendly, providing plenty of food and drink including fresh bread and eggs in the morning! The views were great, the house was spacious and clean. The drive down the track is very steep, but we managed OK despite the rain. We'd recommend taking supplies with you, rather than go up and down the track a lot. There's loads more to do in the area, so we'd love to return and stay longer!
