Well it must be close to 30 degrees and I am sat looking out over a beautiful bay in Greece. This is our half way stopping point back to Bulgaria, where we now have a caravan and spend a couple of weeks here on the way to and on the way back from Bulgaria at the start and end of each summer.
In a few days we leave for our house in Bulgaria and will no doubt spend the first week or two getting the gardens under control and cleaning.
Then it will be off to the coast as we have an apartment there to furnish for a friend and other issues to deal with. The main one being we may need to sell or exchange the two apartments we bought close to Sunny Beach over the last couple of years. This is a real pity and we are hoping we might be able to avoid this and are consulting lawyers. Basically before we bought our main apartment there we looked at many on different complexes in various places but settled on Sunset Kosharitsa because it is fairly rural, being 6km outside of Sunny Beach, its nice and quiet and most importantly there were no rules stopping us taking our dogs. We even stayed there with one of the our dogs in a rental apartment and no-one said a word. So we went ahead and bought a large one bed apartment there which we absolutely love and we love the complex, with the 6 pools, the fact we can walk the dogs in the countryside around and have peace and quiet, yet can get the bus into Sunny Beach for more
'life' there if we want. With this in mind we bought a second apartment there last year as well. But now because of a few small-minded Brits on the committee and others who own a holiday apartment there and come for one week a year and think they know it all, we are being forced out. At the last AGM towards the end of last year it was voted to ban pets. Effectively this means we cannot use or enjoy our apartment.
But for work and other reasons (helping the Nessebar dog charity) we want to keep a property in the Sunny Beach area. We are looking to exchange our main apartment (and possibly the studio) for another apartment or small villa on a managed complex that do not have a problem with dogs. There must be a pool and should be quiet and ideally more rural than central Sunny Beach. We would consider slightly south of Sunny Beach or up to 15 to 20 mins inland but NOT Varna way. So if anyone has a small villa or a decent sized apartment on a quiet, smallish complex and would like to swap for a very nice one bed apartment on Sunset Kosharitsa please let me know. Value wise our apartment is around 26,000 to 28,000 Euros. We could offer the studio as well (15,000 E) if your place for worth more, or would take a cheaper apartment and cash. Both our places are furnished. We would also consider selling both or one or the other as a package.
The studio will be available to rent through out the summer from just 90 Euros a week and our renovated village properties for similar. If you are thinking of coming to Bulgaria, why not come and stay for a week or two and we can show you around and you can see what you think.
Or if you have a place close to Sunny Beach or down towards Sozopol that you would like checked on over the summer or any small jobs doing then let me know and we can help you.
And we still have our renovated villa close to the city of Stara Zagora for sale for offers around 22,000 Euros. Or we are looking for a small motorboat (up to 30 HP engine) with trailer or a moped if anyone has anything like this and could get to Bulgaria for a part-exchange.
