The lounge - a great place to flop after exploring the area
The lounge has a dining table for 6 and comfortable sofa and chairs,  the view is brilliant
The large kitchen has cooker fridge-freezer and microwave as well as a view over the valley
For chilly evenings the snug has a wood-fired stove and heats the central heating system
Sinanitsa is just one of many stunning peaks up in the mountains within easy reach
The views from Sinanitsa are simply breathtaking
Sinanitsa lake is fed by melting snow and provides water for the town of Kresna far below
The snow line in spring is alive with thousands of purple aconites
approaching the White House through the black and white pine trees, a lot of birds live in them
The White House in the snow, but in winter you will need a 4x4 to get there!
The views in the mountains are beyond spectacular - the most beautiful in Bulgaria
On the road to the White House the views are breath-taking
Especially on a clear day
A nearby stream carries water from high in the mountains past The White House
In spring and summer there's an amazing profusion of butterflies, here there are no pesticides
If you are lucky you will see a rare fire salamander!

Sunset over the valley to Macedonia

“Excellent for exploring nature and mountains”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The White House is located amid forest to the southwest of the Pirin mountain range.
It is accessed by vehicle from Kresna, on the road and rail line from Sofia to Greece, though experienced (fit) trekkers will be attracted by arriving from Bansko, having taken advantage of the hut network to explore the Pirin National Park (Guide recommended).
The air is clean and gentle - benefiting from a Mediterranean and an alpine climate.
There is superb nature all around, and artists should pack a sketch pad.
There are other holiday homes here - all Bulgarian owned - and others under construction.
The house itself is renovated from a concrete construction common in the last years of Communism. It is a mix of the modern - such as the kitchen and excellent extension with high sloping roof - and the quirky - with access to the bedrooms and toilets from an external staircase at the rear of the property, and water via an electric pump - although all worked well during my stay.
The service is good from the people who look after the property, with initial contact and key drop-off working fine.
Well before the end of my 12 day stay, I felt relaxed and privileged to have experienced this superb natural environment.
