“Branta Birding lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I staying for 3 nights in the Branta Birding Lodge in April 2013. It is a great place to be and of course watching birds. Form the lodge is has a beautiful view over the lake and the black sea behind it. I was at that time the only guest in the lodge but that was not a problem I never felt alone because I was treated as a "family" member.

Great place, best help and advise for traveling in the area. Perfect for everybody who loves birds or try to escape from civilization.

Room Tip: Look for the room with lake view!

It is nearly five years since I last stayed at Branta Lodge; the welcome
was just as warm and the stay no less comfortable due to Tatanya's excellent
cooking and Pavel's selection of wines. Indeed I count it one of the best
places to stay in Bulgaria both for comfort and excellent birding".

We stayed for six nights this early April. Birding is a hobby that gives us an excuse to see the countryside and get away from big city hustle and bustle. This is the ideal place.....a beautiful view overlooking trees, farmland, marshes and Durankulak Lake with the Black Sea directly behind the lake. The area is an important migration route as well as providing mixed habitat for a wide range of birds.
The rooms are spacious and clean with their own bathrooms. One room has it's own balcony. The other rooms share a balcony (sunroom) and common sitting areas both upstairs and downstairs.
Pavel & Tatania treat you like family. Breakfasts are filling, suppers are hearty and delicious . Pavel is a terrific, knowledgeable guide who will go out of his way to find birds.......worthwhile to hire him for a couple of days.
Note: this is a birding lodge, not a "lay on the beach" type of place. That being said, the beach is only a few miles away.
Highly recommend this place for birders or nature enthusiasts.

Room Tip: Room #9 has it's own balcony.

This year I was for 2 weeks (February) in the Branta Birding Lodge. It is a great place to be. Many birders form different countries (Belgium, Italian, Romanian, American, German, and of course Dutch). The rooms are good, the view is outstanding, the nature in the area has a lot to offer. We saw: two types of Dolphin, Jackals, Foxes, Otter, Long-legged buzzard, White-tailed eagle, Eagle-owl, Dalmatian Pelicans, Red Breasted geese ( over 3000), ..................to much
The owners speak many leagues-es (English, France, Russian, ....). They are very friendly (make you really part of the family) and Tatjana is a great cook. I already start saving for a next trip (spring?)

Room Tip: There are rooms with a view over the lake.............awsome
