Villa Gella is an exclusive retreat situated in Bulgaria's gorgeous Rhodope Mountains. Open year-round to allow visitors to make the most of the region's famously agreeable weather and wealth of activities, Villa Gella is just one part of a memorable adventure.
Villa Gella comprises just six luxurious bedrooms, each ample in size and distinct in design and decor. Impeccable styling by designer Marja Walters features fine art plucked from the private collection of the owner, interspersed with photographs and artifacts that trace the family history of the owner. Floorplans of the six suites combine living areas, en-suite baths, and private terraces in differing sizes and configurations. The constant theme throughout is one of a private stay in the home of a familiar friend. Groups traveling together will find Villa Gella perfectly accommodating: the sprawling Oriental Room on the first floor includes two separate bedrooms and a private Jacuzzi, while the Glass Room and Terrace Room are connected by a private hallway that can be opened up to create a splendid two-bedroom suite. Though all unique, each suite welcomes the outdoors through the large windows and unobstructed views, and guests stay cozy warmed by a fireplace.
The ground floor is the heart of Villa Gella and is a natural gathering place for guests. Indulge in freshly-prepared fare in the dining room with the gardens and mountains ever in view. Dishes are rooted in local tradition, hearty and savory creations enhanced by Terra Tangra local wines and homemade pitka bread. Comfortable couches surround a wood-burning fireplace and create an ideal place to converse with fellow guests over warm herbal teas. The shared facilities also include a library finished in wood and stocked with a poker table, satellite television, a variety of books and magazines, and plush furnishings. An indoor swimming pool anchors the wellness facilities, including free weights for fitness and a steam room for relaxation.
The Western Rhodope Mountains are practically at the doorstep of Villa Gella, and all of the culture and beauty of the region is easy to explore. Embark with a picnic lunch prepared by the Villa Gella chef and visit the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites on scenic day trips through the region. Hiking, caving, and seasonal skiing at the Pamporovo ski resort are all possible from the luxurious confines of Villa Gella.Request Information
