Villa Vuchev – Secluded Luxury in the Rhodope Mountains

Velingrad, also known as the Spa Capital of the Balkans, has so much to offer to the tourist and the traveller – from hot, mineral water springs, criss-crossing the whole town, to drop-dead gorgeous mountain sceneries. However, if you are craving a relaxing stay at a secluded, yet luxurious, location, Villa Vuchev should definitely be on your travel radar.

The villa is a hidden gem nestled in the northern part of the town. It epitomises extravagant accommodation, scrumptious food, private mineral water pool, as well as something no other villa offers… but I’ll get to that later on.


The Rooms and the Interior

At arrival, guests are warmly greeted by the friendly staff who are very enthusiastic to guide you around –the villa, the lush greenery of the garden and the pool, and around the rooms.

The villa is rather small but convenient – it has 8 deluxe rooms. Each of them revolves around resplendence, elegance, and a style of its own. The bathrooms are intricately furbished, fluffy bathrobes of the finest Bulgarian cotton are at guests’ disposal, and luxurious toiletries are provided. Comfortable beds and big TV make sure you will have an unforgettable stay.

Villa Vuchev’s interior is richly decorated with beautiful paintings portraying the history of Velingrad, local delicacies, and traditional uniforms. The LED lights along the corridors are not only soothing to the eyes but are also environmentally friendly.

Plan your stay in advance as there are rarely any rooms for last-minute travellers.


Garden and Exterior of Villa Vuchev

The verdant garden of the villa is redolent with country flowers neatly arranged alongside the lawn. Part of the villa is girded with verdurous ivy which adds up to the sensation of being secluded.

The petite, hot mineral water pool is so cosy that you may end up spending a couple of hours inside. In any case, be advised that with a temperature around 40° C (104° F), staying for more than 15 minutes is not desirable. Of course, jumping back again inside, after some rest, is recommended for the healing water to dance your stress away.

Delectable Home-made Food and a Bar with a Rich Selection of Exquisite Wines

The owners of Villa Vuchev – assiduous entrepreneurs and avid travellers – have become fed up with being charged for coffee and tea at hotels around the world. Thus, reserving your stay at the villa presupposes an unlimited supply of coffee, tea, fizzy drinks, and beer. Breakfast is also included.

Knowing that food is an indispensable part of every stay, they went further by offering home-made food to their guests. It comes in abundance and at very reasonable prices.

From the traditional Shopska salad, made of the most succulent vegetables in Europe, and the fragrant porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis), which are a truly gourmet addition to any meal, through Sofenka bean appetiser (a local variety known for its gigantic size and rich taste) to fresh trout fish and tender, enticing sausages, your taste buds will be severely tantalised.

If that’s not enough to caress your gourmet palate, Villa Vuchev also offers home-made ice-cream, lyutenitsa, and yoghurt – all of which are pure drops of heaven.

What’s even more alluring, is the wide assortment of carefully chosen spirits, among which the best tequila in the world, and a fabulous selection of excellent wines. Bulgarian varieties are mingled with international brands to secure a regal feast.


What Makes Villa Vuchev Unique

Have you ever imagined having a whole villa for yourself? Villa Vuchev is a strict worshipper of personal space and knows that it is of paramount importance for a relaxing retreat. Therefore, despite the villa is a proud owner of 8 luxurious double rooms, booking one is enough to secure that your stay won’t be disturbed by anyone else, meaning that even one person is enough to book the villa for himself/herself. This truly makes the villa one-of-a-kind.


Winner of the prestigious award “Boutique Villa of 2015”, bestowed by the Bulgarian Hotel and Restaurant Association, Villa Vuchev does not sell beds – it offers emotions. If I had my druthers, I would stay there forever.

    Wow, seems so private and peaceful. I’ve never stayed in a villa (except once for work…with my boss, not peaceful). It sounds like an amazing place in an amazing location. Hopefully one day I will have the chance to visit and enjoy the local spas, food, and scenery.

    • Svet

      Yes, that’s the whole idea behind the villa – to be secluded, yet providing the luxury one may need. Everything is great in the town and comes at reasonable prices!

    Velingrad sounds like a great place to visit with it’s mountain scenery and hot springs. I would love to go on a retreat here.

    • Svet

      It is a beautiful place with a great climate – the sunniest place in Bulgaria (more than 250 sunny days a year). The hot springs have earned its fame as the “Spa Capital of the Balkans”. It will soon become Europe’s Spa Capital 🙂

    What a unique experience to have the villa pretty much all to yourself. The food looks delicious and I LOVE wine. As I was reading, I had no clue where this location was until I got to the end 🙂

    • Svet

      Yes, that really makes it unique! The food was mouth-watering and the wine excellent. I hope I made you consider it a location on the to-visit list 🙂

    I love the privacy that it offers – such a beautiful property would be perfect for a romantic vacation on our next trip! Thanks for the review – looking forward to experiencing the Balkans soon 🙂

    • Svet

      Yes, that’s the whole idea behind it. Romantic getaway and luxury all around. You are welcome! When is your next trip, Megan? 🙂

    This is my kind of luxury – private and tucked in the mountains. I’m not really a luxury person, being more of a budget traveler, but I don’t like busy resorts – I LOVE this though! Cheers!

    • Svet

      Absolutely agreed with you, Paige. I am not a big fan of luxury, but this one – I can live with 🙂

      I love going to remote huts too, but from time to time a little luxury won’t hurt anyone 🙂

  6. Bon-Bon

    Oh wow!!! That’s perfect!!! The food looks delish too… Would you suggest to stay there with kids? Not sure what’s their clientele like…

    • Svet

      Hello, Bon-Bon, the villa is incredible. Yes, you can go there with kids. As I have mentioned in the article – if even one room is booked, the whole villa will be for the people that booked it. So, you won’t be disturbed by anyone else 🙂
