Activities

Swim

Popovo Pool

If you like wild swimming, try the fresh water resevoir at Razgrad, a 30 minute drive away.  It has a beach and a beachside bar open from late June to late August.  It's also possible to wild swim in the river at Rusenski Lom Nature Reserve.

Opaka Pool

Our nearest outdoor pool is in Opaka, 7km away.  It is in a beautiful setting with views over the hills and drinks and food are served at the pool.  It's a 10 minute drive away or there's a stunning 2 hour walk through countryside to get there.  There are also outdoor pools in Popovo (8km), Razgrad (20km) and Targovishte (25km).  The pools are only open from mid June to early September.

Walk

Palamartsa hillfort, Bulgaria

The area is an undiscovered beauty where you can walk all day without meeting another person, passing archaeological sites and collecting herbs and mushrooms.   Just outside the door, there are some superb walks through local hills, forests and along tractor trails.  Enjoy the beautiful wildflowers in Spring or stroll past fields full of sunflowers in early autumn. There are no restrictions on where you can walk.  We provide guests with directions and maps for a number of self guided walks in and around the village.
