We stayed for two nights at the beginning of July 2013. We have a house in Bulgaria and have travelled widely, in the country and stayed in many small hotels. Kovachevitsa is one of the highlights of our travels. It is an historically interesting village of period architecture, nestling in hills above a dramatic, forested river valley.
Sylvana, our host, is a delightful person and she impressed us by sending us an e-mail before we arrived with detailed instructions to the house. This is important as the village streets are very narrow and the original paving stones are not good for cars. She advised us to park in the quiet village street and take a few minutes walking down to the house.
The house is gorgeous and is only two years old but has been built with meticulous detail, using quality materials and copying the older houses. The views from the garden are superb.
There are four guest rooms. Ours was most comfortable. There was one other friendly family staying. There is a pleasant balcony on the first floor and a pleasant garden. Meals are taken in a pretty garden house. Sylvana is an excellent cook and provides superb breakfasts and if you want an evening meal, you tell her at breakfast and she will tell you what she is cooking (always wonderful) and you advise how many courses you want.
The village is very quiet at night. There are wonderful walks from the house which give great views of the Pirin Mountains.
A truly memorable two nights and we are recommending this to our friends.
