This is an old stone house but with modern furniture and facilities. There is one double and one twin bedroom for guests and guests have use of their own living room, with TV and coffee and tea making facilities. The living room also has a bed setee which can be used to accommodate one extra person.
There is also a terrace and balcony, which guests are welcome to use and a picnic table on the bank of the river.

The space
The house is on the banks of the Arda river and only a short walk from the popular Aida Restaurant.
There are many activities possible in the area...hiking....caving....horse riding.....fishing, both in the river and at a nearby fishing pond and I will be happy to share local knowledge of interesting places to visit.
Day trips to Greece are possible from here, the lively University city of Xanthi is a two and a half hour drive away.
I am English and speak basic Bulgarian...so if you need to call me and speak in Bulgarian, please be patient with me and speak slowly. Thankyou. :)

Guest access
Guests have access to their own living room with satellite TV and coffee and tea making facilities and a fridge and also to the balcony, terrace and picnic area. You are welcome to use the kitchen and I will make sure that there are ,muesli, milk ,bread,coffee and tea that you can help yourselves to for your breakfast. There is a bakery in the village which makes fresh banitsa daily, except for Sunday and you are welcome to bring back banitsa nd eat them at the house. The Aida restaurant on the other side of the river also can prepare breakfast food, to eat in or take away. By all means prepare any other meals you like as long as the kitchen is left as you found it please.

Other things to note
Guests should be aware that there is a dog living in this house. Her name is Melek and she is a playful and friendly girl and spends most of her time outside. She does not go in any of the guest rooms.
The house is on the main road into the village....this gives easy access to all the village facilities but also means that there is some traffic noise.
