It was my first trip to Bulgaria and it certainly wont be my last! The location of Lovnidol is beautiful and perfect if you want to step out of the 'rat race' and embrace real Bulgarian village life. A modern coach runs from Sofia to Savlievo, and then a 15 mins trip to the beautiful village of Lovnidol. The accomodation is clean, fresh and perfectly equiped for my stay. Waking up every morning to the sounds of nature - birds, chickens and the local cockrel - just perfect! The villagers are friendly - and basic Bulgarian is much appreciated. I would suggest hiring a car if you wanted to visit neighbouring villages and towns, but there are lovely walks locally and over the mountains from Lovnidol. Thanks Pam + Will for being perfect hosts!
