Holidays to Bulgaria 2016 / 2017
Bulgaria has shaken off decades of rule behind the Iron Curtain to become one of the top cheap holiday destinations in Europe. We at Coop Travel have bargain holidays to Bulgaria throughout the year, allowing you to experience this beautiful and enigmatic country for yourself.
Boasting some of the longest beaches in Europe, and bathed in Mediterranean sunshine for much of the year, the resorts of the Black Sea coast are undoubtedly the biggest lure of Bulgaria package holidays. Once the haunt to high-ranking KGB officials, Bulgaria holidays are now largely taken by bargain-seeking tourists, who flock here for the warm Mediterranean sunshine, golden swathes of sand and family-orientated activities.
Most cheap holidays are taken at modern, purpose-built resorts like Elenite, Sunny Beach and Golden Sands, all within easy reach of Bourgas airport. Other popular resorts include Pomorie, Burgas, Nesebar and St Konstantin. While modern tourist developments have transformed the Bulgarian coastline, they have been restricted to key areas, so there is still plenty of unspoiled beauty on offer. Look beyond the high-rise hotels and tourist beaches and you’ll find picturesque coves, lush cascading cliff tops, timber-framed villages, Balkan monasteries, Roman remains and cultural gems from the Ottoman Empire.
With warm temperatures and long hours of sunshine from April to October, last minute Bulgaria holidays are increasingly taken in the spring and autumn months, with half term a popular time for families. During the winter, the Balkan ski villages come alive, meaning there’s never really an off season for late deals to Bulgaria. People visit as much for the wildlife and culture as the beaches and water sports, and every resort has its own special flavour.
In or out of season, Bulgaria holiday offers are packed with adventure, from jeep safaris to nature reserves, to pony treks in the mountains, to Balkan wine-tasting sessions. Wherever you go, you’ll find friendly, hospitable people and old-fashioned charm.
