I had a really great and relaxing time staying with Graham and Faz who were fantastic hosts. My friend and I decided on Bulgaria as it offers good value and a culture we'd never experienced before. It certainly gave us that, staying within the village near Sandanski you get to see the real Bulgaria. The home is of very high quality build and has a cool and airy environment fantastic for the hot weather. The view of the mountains, land and big vegetable patch is wonderful. We even had a go at making organic cider which was great fun. Most of the food is home grown and I recommend the fig jam! I will definitely be back!
