    There is no much in the way of places to go from here, we are quite remote in the mountain, but it is peaceful and very quite, a place for beautiful walks, sky at night is so clear you will see so many stars, listen to bird song day and night. Because we are quite remote, we are happy to pick you up from Elena or Veliko Tarnovo
