There are mountain views all around, its situated in a fertile secret valley surrounded by forest, with its own micro climate of long dry summers and brief milder winters, with only 2 months when it may snow, and fed by a boulder strewn waterfall with swim holes, also a totally unspoilt river only 2 mins away..... Village life mostly unchanged for 100yrs, almost no traffic, lots of horsedrawn wagons , shop with all essentials & local produce, and 'Mehana' restaurant bar 1minutes walk away. Wonderful neighbours who love to make gifts of eggs and fetta, wine & rakia , vegetables & grapes. Many delightful Bulgarian children who school in village for summer hols. ...... There are free walking/cycling trails and 4x4 tracks off in every direction and you can ride a horse or even float to the sea, but beaches or fishing port are best reached by the winding and very bumpy mountain roads .........The Village is an amazing unique secret place with a fascinating history & we want to keep it that way, so we only pass on more specific information online to sincere enquirers. Nearest port Tsarevo 15mins. Sozopol a short drive & we are close to Sinemorets.

One beach by the estuary of the river Velika, is of the cleanest in Europe, with a freshwater lagoon where otters play next to a sand bar full of flowers. Free horses wander right up to the sea and a track allows you to drive on beach for a campfire right under the cliffs. Your view of the rugged park coastline has no building in sight!! ....Horseback tours let you swim in the sea with them & follow the river up to the village so you can tie up at the barn. River is not private its shared by the village and fishing licence is not needed WELCOME TO STRANDJA NAT. PARK, - EVERYWHERE YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ! * * * * * * * BARN CONVERSION: The lower barn is full of exposed beams, with its own large kitchen & wet room , esp. for larger groups or families staying together, but with their own independent space. This is all tiled so some pets permitted here. Finally in another village we have 'Orlov Balkon' (the Eagles Balcony) under restoration. Guests are invited to take a tour and experience this incredible place & its panorama....... **** We are often nearby or have bi-lingual trusted local friends to guide you & provide any assistance you may need **** FINALLY, SE Bulgaria is BY FAR the best BARGAIN in Europe, holiday expenses here are TINY, you may get cheaper flights elsewhere, BUT in the end your holiday will cost much more- South East Bulgaria has it ALL & saves money! TESTIMONIALS : (MORE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST, PREV. BOOKED VIA OTHER SITE). We had a very nice week indeed. The house was well suited for our purpose.The area is really beautiful. The kids wanted to go to the beach every day, but one came on a local bike ride. Fantastic. Good village, it felt safe. Nice bar – the old boys there were really nice to us when we went out to have a drink in the evening. We ended up spending most of our time at Arapya. Good, relaxed, nice café and kid friendly waters & friendly Bulgarians. Would we want to go back to the area? Absolutely. Would we recommend Pelican Farm. Yes. Rather there than a beach hotel . (Family group from Norway and Bulgaria.) 'Traditional, rustic and cozy Bulgarian property in a peaceful and scenic location.' We really enjoyed our stay,we found the villagers welcoming and friendly. The village is tranquil with only the sounds of nature and is a window into a traditional rural Bulgarian way of life. It was an ideal base to travel and explore the surrounding area, only 15 mins to the nearest small town and beaches. We would recommend a car for flexibility and convenience, although there was a bus service available. Visiting the nearby resorts and the old town of Sozopol, are a must. The location allows you to spend time in the quiet coves or time on the bustling beaches and nearby resorts.The key pick up was made very easy by the owners and their friend Dinko. (English Family)

Pretty house but for 8 people only
The pros: - It is a great house renovated with lot of charm and care taken. - The house is situated very close to wonderful beaches (20 mins to coast road) - Owner provided us with a number of valuable information wrt the stay and provided fast feedback to our mails The cons: - We were (quite unkindly) forced to sign a complicated contract that was sent to us after we had already left for Bulgaria (booking and full payment was already done at that time) - The garden was not usable: High weed all over the place when we arrived. It was cut after we told the owner, but the weed stayed there lying around - In contrast to what is written the house is only suitable for 8 (5+3) people: Not enough chairs, tables, limited kitchen equipment and quite uncomfortable sofas required a lot of improvisation from our side (using our personal camping equipment) The owner did respond and wanted to fix some of the things, but only after half of the stay was over. We decided to continue with what we had, expecting some reduction. A small discount was granted - in our opinion not adequate to the short-comings. Our overall impression is that it is a pretty house, but too expensive for only providing equipment for 8 people. Maybe some of the short-comings could be fixed for future guests.

We rushed to help this big family group with missing garden table & chairs,after a few days they said it was ok. We now have new tables, garden chairs sofas & more at the house. True there was not enough for 12 persons at that time. Sorry but the contract is a necessity for owners insurance. We have made changes & taken the advice of these guests to heart & thank them for an honest description of house and area.
