I recommend Izvora for a number of reasons: first of all, it is situated in the attractive settlement of Arbanasi which has preserved its unique 17-century architectural monuments and has become a resort; secondly, because the hotel complex is a great combination of an old building with a 150-year history and two newly built architectural ensembles.
And if you happen to be there by chance or on purpose, then you should know that the hotel offers a restaurant with one summer and two winter gardens, a car park, an outdoor pool, a spa center, quad safari, a children’s playground and even a small zoo. To cut a long story short, you can have fun, relax, or go to a safari while your kids are in the playground.
But this is not all. If you’ve come here not just to enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, but also have some business to do, don’t hurry to change the place, because the “Ilarion Dragostinov” community center is on the territory of the complex. Its 120-seat conference hall is perfect for business seminars, conferences and business meetings. This tourist landmark is well equipped and offers unique authentic atmosphere with its 300-year cultural history.
Anyway, let’s get to the point. On 1 November 2006 the hotel was awarded the prestigious “Authentic Bulgaria” quality mark for hotels, meeting the requirements for authentic and original tourist product. The hotel has 1 single room, 13 bedrooms, 8 double rooms, 4 double luxurious rooms, 1 studio, 1 panoramic luxurious studio, 2 suites and 2 luxurious suites. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, cable TV, minibar, personal safe and telephone.
If you want to experience the atmosphere of the famous Bulgarian movie “The Peach-Garden Trespasser”, then you should come to villa Izvora, where the movie was shot. This is not all, the villa has plenty of tempting offers - rooms with 2, 3 and 4 beds, as well as a gorgeous yard in the authentic Arbanasi style. To put it shortly, this is the place for real connoisseurs.
And because every pleasure carrying the “Authentic Bulgaria” quality mark has a price, fill your pocket and start the car.
A night in Izvora costs between 100 leva for a single room and 320 leva for a suite. And if you have decided to rest like a king, then for 600 leva you can hire the whole villa with all extras and indulge yourself in the unique Arbanasi atmosphere.
