Stay in our authentic eco friendly holiday cottage on our small farm in rural Bulgaria, voted Tripadvisor number 1 in Bulgaria. 

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 his flock to pasture.

We have tried to make this a truly sustainable holiday.

Kids love to feed our pig, collect eggs from the hens and take the goats to pasture.  Guests help themselves to organic fruit and vegetables from the garden and there is fresh milk from our goats.  You can pre-order a hamper full of home-made goodies.

Your home will be a solar powered traditional village house with stone and mud plaster interior. It has a unique and peaceful atmosphere.  


at Wild Thyme...the owners have done up the houses with such feeling for rustic sensuality and spacious living, we didn't actually feel like going out....

Of all the Green Lodges we've seen, Wild Thyme is the most ecologically committed and spiritually inspired: it's truly a labour of love and ingenuity.
