What do you look for when booking a summer holiday? Great weather, sandy beaches, good quality hotels, a low cost of living and unbeatable value for money for the holiday itself? If the answer is yes to all of these take a look at Bulgaria as this beautiful Balkan country has it all.

Set in south eastern Europe, Bulgaria really does have it all including over two hundred miles of coastline along the Black Sea, a wide choice of resorts from Sunny Beach, the biggest and busiest resort to small towns and villages such as Nessebar, a UNESCO world heritage site that gives you a taste of the real Bulgaria.

Bulgaria also has a wide choice of very high standard hotels from locally owned and managed hotels to international hotel chains such as Iberostar, Hilton, Barcelo and Melia. The cost of living in Bulgaria is very low too and Non-Euro, for example, you can buy lunch for £3, a bottle of beer costs under £1 and a three course evening meal is approximately £10. Indeed, Sunny Beach came top in a recent ‘cheapest resort in Europe’ Post Office survey.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the cost of a holiday to Bulgaria offers exceptional value for money, especially with Balkan Holidays, the UK’s leading tour operator to Bulgaria. As a specialist for the last 50 years, they offer the widest selection of flights, resorts and hotels, you can choose from 5 star all-inclusive hotels to smaller two or three star hotels offering bed and breakfast, whichever you choose you will find it hard to beat Bulgaria and Balkan Holidays for value for money.

Balkan Holidays operates flights from 18 UK airports including Newcastle, Manchester and Glasgow and all their holidays are bookable through your local branch of Cumbria Travel who can advise you of the latest prices and which holiday will suit you the best.

In addition to Bulgaria Summer, Balkan Holidays also specializes in Winter Ski and Board Holidays to Bulgaria – with weekly flights from 7 UK airports including both Manchester and Newcastle. Like the Summer Resorts, the Bulgarian ski resorts of Bansko, Borovets and Pamporovo offer excellent value for money both in terms of food, drink and the skiing/boarding. Balkan Holidays offer Learn to Ski Packs starting at just £115 per person – which includes everything you need for your Winter Sports holiday (Tuition, Lift Pass and Equipment Hire).

Not forgetting – as the specialist Tour Operator to the Balkans, Balkan Holidays also offer a variety of holidays to many other Balkan countries including Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Macedonia. The Balkan Holidays Discovery brochure offers a wide selection of Special Interest holidays including Lakes & Mountains, escorted tours, river and Adriatic cruises, walking and golf holidays.
