was to find a luxury apartment in Bulgaria, somewhere to come and hide from the day to day stresses of normal life. Bulgaria really is an undiscovered gem and Sozopol is hidden away on the south eastern coast of the country.
So in June 2007 we took a trip to see what our money could buy and was pleasantly surprised! Of course the resort of Sunny Beach is becoming more and more popular, with all the building work that comes with it, but for us looking for somewhere away from the crowds, Sozopol ticked every box.
We viewed several options, but the Byzantium development just north of the centre of Sozopol, overlooking the beautiful Black Sea coastline and the fabulous beaches, made our decision very easy!
A two bedroom apartment, sleeping up to six, and with access to the developments own shop, restaurant, gym, swimming pool and Turkish bath (!), will be a luxurious base for anybody looking to holiday, relax and explore Bulgaria.
Here are our pictures of the early building work....,
together with an artists impression of the finished site.
