About the neighbourhood
It is a few kilometers from the town of Apriltsi which is a tourist center for Bulgarians not yet well known to western tourists. (Try googling Apriltsi) Here there are many good restaurants and swimming pools. The nearest restaurant and pool (About 1 Euro per day) is 15 min. walk or 3 min. in a car. (Hotel Romantica which has a web site)
There is good road access without road noise and ample secure parking. A very quiet, beautiful, secluded and private location close to the village of Kravenic which has a bar and well stocked grocery shops.
Public transport is available from Savlievo.
The surrounding country is stunning with rivers mountains and forest in which there are deer, bears and wild boar. Much of it is national park. The walking is spectacular and with few people. The forest...

How to get there
Airport: Sofia: 185.0 km
Railway: Gabrovo: 41.0 km
There is a direct bus Sofia to Apriltsi where we can pick up or to Savlievo where there is a local bus to Kravenik. We can arrange Bucharest to Kravenik with a stop over in the beautiful city of Ruse for £90 each way. From Kravenik shops turn left up hill past the church. Stay on this road past the turning for Hotel Romantica and over the river. Keep going about a kilometer and the house is on the left just before a sharp bend left. The number 214 is written on the house wall. GPS co-ordinates are available.
