The joys of Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro have to be seen to be believed: traditional values of exceptional hospitality combine with modern infrastructures and amenities.
These glorious countries offer pristine, uncrowded beaches, peaceful, crystal clear lakes and mountains for walking, winter skiing and snow pursuits, interesting cities with history and culture. Food and wine are very important in these countries, so you will be spoilt for choice here.
Mature travellers are especially well served in Bulgaria by the ‘Spice of Life’ programme, which offers excellent value for money, half board accommodation, many extra treats and the chance to share holidays with people of a similar age, who have shared interests.
The cities of Plovdiv, Sofia, Varna and Bourgas in Bulgaria, Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb in Croatia or Ljubljana in Slovenia are absolute delights, with outstanding architecture, fabulous museums and art galleries along with good quality restaurants at very reasonable prices. The cities are steeped in history telling the story of European civilisation and its multi-layered past. You will be surprised and intrigued!
Slovenia offers the beauty of Lake Bled, with good hotels, superb hiking and trails for relaxing strolls, as well as being a training ground for Olympic rowers from Britain!
If you prefer the sea, Croatia’s coast is charming, dotted about by islands of rare beauty. The Adriatic sea and the shoreline are well known for being the historic playground of European royalty and aristocrats, it is easy to see why. Central Dalmatia and Istria have much to share with the discerning traveller too.
This region is just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed, whatever you would like from a holiday, you are sure to find it here.
