About The Eden Retreat
Nestled amongst the hills of a timeless landscape, The Eden Retreat offers you the opportunity to become at one with a life that welcomes the seasons as friends and is respectful of nature; in a place where the rumble of modern traffic is replaced by the pastoral melodies of the horse and cart. Set in a glorious valley in idyllic North Eastern Bulgaria, The Eden Retreat is an oasis of tranquility where you wake to the sounds of exotic birds; pick your own fresh fruit for breakfast and experience a night sky so clear it almost feels like you can touch the Milky Way!

In The Eden Retreat you have two magnificent bedrooms, your sundeck and a beautifully maintained, private 5m x 3m pool. With an acre of meadow all to yourself, a chill out “glamping” tent and a huge downstairs kitchen / dining and lounge area, it’s the perfect place to be if you’re looking for that peaceful “special somewhere” where your mind can be free to wander, wonder and wander some more.

The Eden Retreat can be reached by hire car from Varna airport (closest), or Bourgas, Sofia or Bucharest airport. The retreat can arrange pick up at a cost but it is probably most fun to hire a car so you can explore more of Bulgaria (car hire is not included).
