The Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria is famous for fields of perfumed old-world roses, producing rose oil as it has for thousands of years. During late May and early June the valley is filled with the perfume of millions of roses, song & dance.
The people of the valley dress in traditional costume & celebrate harvest with days of festival. All is set amongst the stunning scenery of mountain and the Valley of the Roses.
BULGARIA IS A HIDDEN TREASURE TROVE OF HISTORY –
LETS GO BEFORE THE TOURIST HORDE FINDS IT
Ancient villages in the Valley of Roses, have historical treasures from thousands of years of history. Life goes on here as it has for centuries. We explore Plovdiv – Europe’s oldest town, with continuous settlement for some 8,000 years, as well as other ancient towns & villages set amongst stunning natural scenery, wildflowers and traditional Bulgarian life.
WE LOVE THE WILDFLOWER MOUNTAIN PASTURES
& “MUST SEE” UNTOUCHED RURAL LIFE OF ROMANIA
In 2017 an intrepid band of us jaunted up into the wildflower meadows, ancient towns and untouched rural villages of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania. We loved it.
So in this holiday we are venturing even further afield in the mountains of Romania.
There is no where else left in Europe like it.
It is a “must see” before it is forever lost.
