Go downstairs to a large open plan kitchen/dining area that is fully fitted with fridge/freezer, cooker, hob, microwave and dishwasher. There is a seperate utility area with washing machine. The dining area leads into a comfortable seating area with TV/DVD with etc which is double aspect so the views can also be enjoyed from inside. There are blinds on every window to maintain a cool temperature plus air conditioning in every room.

There is a second lounge area to to left of the kitchen. Again there is TV/entertainment centre. Both TV's can be used to watch DVD's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just come back from our holiday in Balchik, Bulgaria. The villa was fab,with plenty of room(there were 7 of us) lots of light and airy space and amazing views across the Black sea.The pool was absolutely fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the swallows and swifts swooping over it every afternoon. The location is quiet and very restful, Our flight was 1 ½ hours late but Michaela was fantastic and bought pizzas and chips which were keeping warm in the oven when we arrived ,( Very useful when you have ravenous teenagers with you !), The villa was very well equipped and the welcome pack of groceries excellent as we arrived on a late evening flight so could not get shopping until the next day.

Michaela is an absolute diamond, with excellent local knowledge and was really helpful and welcoming. We did hire a car, although we didn’t use it very much, as we are keen walkers even though the area is very hilly and we all came home with very well toned leg muscles! It’s worth knowing that Dimex car hire prefer to be paid in Euros not Levas. Then you won’t take too much Bulgarian money home with you as you receive your deposit back at the airport.

Overall we’ve had a great holiday and have come home well rested and relaxed .If you want to go to Balchik on holiday, then I recommend that you stay in Villa Viola

The most fabulous relaxing holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Villa Viola earlier on this month for 1 week with my boyfriend and 3 friends and all I can say is WOW! Stunning villa, views and location, I couldn't recommend a more beautiful, chilled place to go on holiday.

The villa is very spacious, all bedrooms rooms have ensuits. The kitchen and pool area is great for entertaining, the pool is a decent size so perfect for large family's or groups.

The Villa is about a 15 minute walk to the harbour, bars and restaurants but there was a couple of days I couldn't walk it due to being pregnant so we called a taxi which was so cheap.

Balchik is a great location, very clean and we all felt extremely safe :)

We are definitely going to book up next year for 2 weeks as a week just wasn't long enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we welcome all comments and reviews, as they help us understand and improve what our guests most look for in a holiday. I fell in love with Balchik and built the villa in 2007. 10 years on more and more visitors are finding the Varna region of Bulgaria a hidden gem and visitors numbers are growing. We would very much enjoy seeing you again next year. We are already receiving enquiries for 2018, so please try to reserve your dates early.

The perfect relaxation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa Viola is situated in a beautiful position up in the hills overlooking the sea coast. Well maintained and in fabulous condition, all the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable all with en-suite bathrooms and two have private balconies. Have just come away from a fantastic week with friends chilling by the pool, fabulous BBQs and delicious meals from some of the local restaurants nearby. The villa is also walking distance of the bars and restaurants on the sea front, and Balchik Botanical Gardens. I couldn't recommend highly enough, and we would love to return again next year.

VillaViola - beautiful - calm and bright.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here.I travelled with my son & daughter neice and nephews 16/19/23/25 age brackets,all loved the place,spending hours just enjoying the pool which was very refreshing and essential.The whether was perfect sun for 10 days continuous and we enjoyed fantastic BBQ's on the terrace.

The interior is stylishly decorated and just nice homely touches around you - loved the DVD selection.

Pool lights glowed and the little birds that would just skim the water and fly off at a certain time of the afternoon were very sweet.

Peaceful and delightful - appeal to all ages and types.

From beginning to end we were looked after very warmly and with a really sincerely helpful attitude.

Everything was made easy from flight advice to pick ups, car hire etc - all taken care of.

Total relax from start to finish -

Well - i was reluctant to write this as now it's going to get booked up and I'll miss my slot :-)....................

WOW!!!! What can I say? We have just returned from a two break at Villa Viola and had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived when we were greeted by Michaela to the moment we left at 5AM when again Michaela was there to bid us goodbye it was perfect. the welcome pack was first class with plenty provisions to get us through till we could go shopping the following day. The villa itself was the best I have stayed in and I have stayed in many!!!! The views were stunning and watching the sunset from the balcony every evening what a perfect way to end the day. From the oldest member of the group 64 years to the youngest 2 years old everyone had a brilliant time. The pool kept us all entertained and the sunbathing was ideal. Thanks to all for making our holiday such a memorable one

First class place !

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our vacation Villa Viola a few weeks ago and we are so pleased we chose this villa for our family reunion with our extended family from the USA and Romania.

There is plenty of room, the kitchen is huge and has everything you need, and the pool is absolutely gorgeous. There is wifi, TV, air conditioning, a grill, microwave, etc. - there isn't anything we were lacking for. A couple of days we just sunbathed in the back yard and dipped in the pool and grilled in the afternoon - absolute peace and seclusion.

The views of the black sea are tremendous. Having your first cup of coffee in the morning and sitting on the balcony and staring out over the sea just made my day. If you want something that is pretty private and you just want to relax with your friends or family this is the place.

Finally, all of our interactions with Neil (the owner of the property) and Michaela ( who manages the property) were superb. They wanted to make sure that everything was taken care for us and that we were happy. Its a first class place, but more importantly, its run by first class people.

Thanks Neil and Michaela for making this such a wonderful holiday and family reunion for us. Thank you !

Wonderful stay at Villa Viola

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented quite a few vacation houses and apartments in Western Europe and the US and I have to say Villa Viola in Blachick, Bulgaria is probably the most beautiful house we ever stayed in. Where should I start: the view and the pool are absolutely fantastic, the house is sparklingly clean, quiet, very well kept, tastefully decorated; its layout was perfect for our extended family (6 people). On arrival we found milk, cheese, bread, wine, cookies, etc. waiting for us at the house. It was such a pleasure to meet Michaela, she was gracious and helpful at every step; my husband mentioned in passing that we will be celebrating a birthday during our staying and that day we found a surprise gift from Michaela – a box of Cadbury chocolates ( the best chocolate in the world –in my opinion). I also mentioned that my 7 year old daughter loves dogs and Michaela brought over her adorable cocker spaniel – the two of them had a blast.

Overall we has a wonderful experience; we hope to be back at Villa Viola very soon! We very highly recommend it!

An experience not to be missed!
