Explore each province to find your perfect holiday or dream home. Taking you off the beaten track on a journey through welcoming communities and unchanged landscapes of past eras, these pages will constantly be updated as I find the hidden treasures of Bulgaria.

Whether you are looking for winter sports, mountain walks, city life, glorious beaches or somewhere in-between Bulgaria has something to offer everyone and you will not be disappointed, unless you purchase a rural house in a Bulgarian ghost village. This may suit you but it’s not for everyone so definitely do some research first.

It is sad to see what was once a thriving village now left to decay – the younger generation leaving villages to find work in the cities and the elderly eventually leave too.  An unoccupied village may be surrounded by more villages with only 1-5 residents so there may not be a shop for 10 km or more although a mobile shop may visit with essentials.

However, a ghost village may still be a great business investment to bring a sleepy village back to life and provide jobs for the few remaining residents. Maybe an exclusive yoga/meditation retreat or a luxury spa resort, the opportunities are there.  The Gabrovo province seems to have many unoccupied villages.

I will update this this area regularly, adding properties, rentals, tradesmen and much more……
