Villa Gella offers an authentic and luxurious experience in the wilderness of the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria, an area of outstanding natural beauty, steeped in history and culture. Nestling in the sleepy hamlet of Gela, the birthplace of the legendary musician Orpheus, this restored six-bedroom villa, at an altitude of 1,700m, commands magnificent mountain views. Surrounded by peaks and pristine lakes, nature reserves, deep canyons, historical sites, and close to Bulgaria's second largest ski resort Pamporovo, Villa Gella has something for everyone, depending on the season: hiking, horse riding, biking, skiing, bird and wild animal watching, exploring caves and traditional villages, discovering the area's diverse heritage, haunting folk music and invigorating dance, or just relaxing and enjoying the tranquility of the mountains. Four of the nine Bulgarian UNESCO heritage sites are within visiting distance. Villa Gella has six distinctive en-suite bedrooms, each enjoying spectacular views and providing a luxurious bed, ample space for relaxation and the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace in every room. The spacious living and dining room is at the heart of the house, a place to enjoy superb cooking by the villa's private chef, afternoon tea brewed from local medicinal herbs, or get-togethers with local musicians, historians and archaeologists. A small cozy library offers seclusion from the outside world - or access to it via Internet and TV. The Spa and wellness floor below has an indoor swimming pool (10x3.5m with a jet), massage area and steam room, a yoga corner and a small gym for rigorous or relaxing exercise. The terraced gardens provide additional seasonal options for sun bathing and sports. 6 en-suite bedrooms (2 with Jacuzzi), Outdoor fireplace, Garage, Library with satellite TV, computer, Wi-Fi, radio/ I-Pod player, Wood-burning fireplaces in all rooms, Utility and laundry rooms, Professional chef, Daily cleaning, Caretaker, Laundry services, Half board (breakfast and three-course dinner including wine).
