At Wild Thyme …’the owners have done up the houses with such feeling for rustic sensuality and spacious living that we don’t actually feel like going out’, Guardian Travel feature by author Kapka Kassabova, August 2013

‘Such an amazing place with a huge sense of hospitality! Those 6 days offered us to discover a little place of heaven where people really live in harmony with what they believe in…this is proof that is possible, and so enjoyable!’  Camille, Aug 2012

A stay in Palamartsa is a step back in time, where horses and carts pass outside your window and you are woken by the sound of the village shepherd taking the flock out to pasture.  Surrounded by rolling hills and an ancient landscape you can relax among folk still using traditional farming methods.  There are also many interesting places to visit locally and activities to enjoy.

‘We arrived in the night to this hot village.  Then we discovered this amazing house.  It was so amazing to live during 6 days in Wild Thyme.  Thank you for welcoming us.  It inspired us to make our movies.  I hope to see you again in the future.’   Sebastien, Paris, Aug 2012

We have sympathetically renovated a traditional village house into an eco holiday cottage powered by solar panels.  Its stone and mud plaster interior give it a natural and unique atmosphere.  We have tried to make this a truly sustainable holiday.

”Wild Thyme!’ You make us have such a good time..!! I deeply appreciate your place and way of living….and making it a place to accomodate other people with such hospitality and generosity…it’s just wonderful! Merci.  With love’ Paul, France, Aug 2012
