Staying in Bulgarian countryside is something to remember. Living in a tiny quiet village, you might witness a passing era. Locals are breeding domestic animals, make their own yogurt at home and in September make winter supplies from fruit trees, grown up in their own gardens. The sound of a rooster crowing in the morning would remind you that the best eggs come from chickens who wander all day freely around.
Villa Lavandin has been inspired by the French country style holiday homes, where the simple living perfectly combines modern technology with rustic furniture and greatly complements the rural daily life. In this newly build rental home you will find all the best from past and present. Being so close to Albena resort, it makes it easy to pop into a shop, go to the beach, eat out in the evening, as frankly you might not be willing to go out of the villa at all.
The ground floor living room is spread out on more than 50 sq. m and combines an entrance hall, open plan kitchen, dining and lounge areas. Kitchen is fully fitted with refrigerator with freezer, oven, electric hobs, microwave, dishwasher, extractor, el. kettle, microwave, coffee machine and blends modern features with old-fashioned decor. Lounge area - somewhere to relax with a cup of tea or coffee and a good book - it is definitely your special space to unwind or to keep the children busy with some TV channels. On the same level there is a wet room with washing machine. On the ground floor you will find 2 bedrooms - a twin bedroom with adjacent tiny shower room opposite the corridor and en suite double bedroom - both with direct access to the patio and the swimming pool. Upstairs are the other two bedrooms located - a twin and a double one - both with private shower room. Every detail in Villa Lavandin is thought through to make the home as comfortable as possible.
All the bedrooms and the four simple shower rooms are finished with small details, which warm the rooms up and spreads the extra special country chic look throughout the villa. This holiday home is generously finished with a mix of antiques and it looks like as though each of these pieces has a story to tell you. The artwork on the walls and all the little things make this holiday home feel so lived-in. The bedrooms are furnished with comfortable iron beds for a peaceful night sleep, loads of sweet accessories and a chandelier overhead.
The undercover outdoor area is divine with a stone barbecue and table with garden chairs – stylish venue for your perfect alfresco dining. Relaxing on the veranda or front porch is one of life's great joys, especially if there is a good book involved. In the BBQ area - warm in the evenings and cool in the shade - you will find your special place away from the midday sun, to relax and enjoy some quiet time when children have their late afternoon nap after the beach. If they are too excited to be put to bed, you can keep an eye on the children playing in the kids' pool from the outside covered area.
Filled with the perfume of the lavender bushes in the garden, the breeze creates the never-to-be-forgotten Villa Lavandin feel.
