Farm house overview - owner's description

Stay in our eco holiday cottage on our organic small holding in Palamartsa village

Enjoy freshly baked bread and home made preserves delivered to your door for breakfast while staying in our eco holiday cottage on our organic farm in northeast Bulgaria. Stay in a beautifully renovated farmhouse finished in natural materials. The house is full of period features such as original doors, windows and cob floors. Our eco-retreat won TripAdvisor People's Choice No1 Award in Bulgaria in 2016 and 2015.

The house will sleep 6 in two double rooms and 1 twin room. Two of the farmhouse style bedrooms lead onto a wooden veranda overlooking the guests' private garden. The library and family bathroom also lead onto the balcony. The third bedroom is in a separate annex in the garden with its own bathroom. There is an open air barn space, bbq, fire pit, hammock and hanging bed under the trees in the garden. Guests can help themselves to organic vegetables. For chilly months, there is a wood fired central heating system and wood burning stove.

Downstairs, what was an old Tailor's shop and barn, have been beautifully converted into a comfortable living room, modern kitchen and dining area, with exposed beams and lots of windows for light.

A stay with us promises to be an authentic eco experience and features include solar power, solar heated water, rainwater recycling, an external eco composting toilet (in addition to two flushing toilets), recycling and the use of eco products.

Join one of our activities to learn how to make cheese, preserves or salami; have a self guided walk through wildflower meadows in spring and autumn; or take a horse and cart ride.

The village has a rich cultural life with its own band of singers, dancers and musicians and there are lots of festivals in the summer months. We can arrange an evening of Bulgarian music and food at Wild Thyme or a small concert of traditional Bulgarian singing at the local bar/cafe.

The region has many amazing historical places including 3 World Heritage Sites, one of which is the painted medieval rock monastery at Ivanovo. We are archaeologists and have created a number of guided excursions which guests can choose from if they wish.

There is an outdoor summer swim pool in a local village; a fishing lake and we are within reach of the cities of Ruse, Veliko Tarnovo and Shumen with their unique and rich heritages. For that extra bit of relaxation, you can have a reiki therapy or we can arrange a massage or beauty treatment in the local town.

It is very cheap and efficient to travel on public transport in Bulgaria. Wild Thyme is only 8 km away from Popovo which has a direct train link to Sofia and Varna. We are only 3 hours south of Bucharest and we can arrange a taxi pick-up at a very reasonable price from the airport or advice on travelling by public transport. We are also on route between Istanbul and Bucharest.
