A mountain called Stara Planina separates Bulgaria in two major parts. It goes from west to east. On the north side it borders Romania, to the south Turkey and Greece, to the west Serbia and to the east the Black Sea. You will find temperatures in the south much hotter than the north with temperatures on average in summer 30°C. Most of the houses we sell are in the south centre around Sofia with flights daily and the motorway leads direct to all the villages and large towns. Most of the houses are only one-hour drive away and close to the towns of Pazardzhik, Plovdiv, Pamporovo and Borovets. You will have plenty to do in any of the places you buy, as the south is the most developed part of Bulgaria.

The coastal resorts are on average 200 km from the central part of Bulgaria. There are very large lakes in the south with great fishing and things to do for adults and children.
