This large property has the advantage of offering family sized accommodation and the opportunity to provide an income. It is situated in the pleasant village of Ekzarh Yosif which is only a 30 minute drive from the beautiful city of Ruse and the river Danube. Ekzarh Yosif is a well organised, clean village with a Post Office, small zoo, museum, 2 shops, 2 bars, hardware store and a library. There is a meals on wheels service and an active pensioners club and on Monday’s there is a small market in the centre. The property is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre which holds many events on festival days. A bus service goes regularly to Ruse and the surrounding villages.

The property has been extended with all the correct planning applications to provide a bar done to European standards. This was a popular venue for the Brits and the locals but has since been converted to a 2 bed annex. Returning this section of the property to a bar would be a simple matter or it can be used as bed and breakfast accommodation, either would provide an income.
