Compass swimming pool February 2010 - brrr!

Fancy A Swim? The photo above shows what our swimming pool at Compass looked like in the first week of February 2010!  We found a very cheap flight with  wizzair – think it was about £80 each return from Luton airport – yes, return! Wish it was that sort of price...


Now Where Did I Leave My Ferrari (I wish!)

Are You A Car Enthusiast? If you are, then St Vlas is the place to go to see some pretty amazing cars.  Many of them are owned by the Dinevi brothers.       Vlas’s Very Own Car Rally Each year (I think it may be early May-ish), Vlas Marina takes...


Open All Hours

Best Of Both Worlds! What do I mean by that?  Well, the good thing about having an apartment in St Vlas is that you literally can have the best of both worlds.  If you want peace and quiet, a relaxing walk, slow stroll along the beach or a mooch in...


Complex Admiral

Complex Admiral Sveti Vlas

Can’t Wait! This is one of the latest developments to be built by the Dinevi brothers,  It’s located between the building housing Gloria Mar supermarket and apartments and Watermill complex. I think it’s possibly going to be one of the best complexes in the area with its excellent facilities (including...


Old and New Nessebar

Nessebar is split into two areas – “old” and “new”.  Old Nessebar is set on a rocky peninsula connecting it to the mainland and New Nessebar. It’s A Must See! Whatever you do, if you go to this area you must go to Old Nessebar.    Just a little south of...


Sea Taxi

Sea Taxi Sveti Vlas Marina

During the summer months – and weather permitting – a sea taxi runs from the Dinevi Marina over to Old Nessebar.  It runs hourly during the day and costs about 15 leva (although this may obviously change).  It’s a lovely alternative to catching a bus or taking a taxi or...

  What A Treat! This has got to be one of the most interesting places we have ever visited.  Jam packed with history, Old Nessebar must receive thousands and thousands of visitors throughout the summer months.  If you go to this area of Bulgaria please do your best to visit....


Flights to Bourgas

Balkan airplane

During the main holiday period (May to September) it’s very easy to get to Bulgaria from nearly all UK airports.  The main airlines are Thomsons, BH Air (Balkan Holidays) and wizzair.  Bourgas airport is the closest one to Vlas and Sunny Beach (about 30 to 40 minutes drive) but there’s...


Getting About Bulgaria Quickly and Cheaply!

One of the best (and cheapest) ways to get around is by public bus.  During the holiday season (May to September) the buses run very regularly.  If you want to go to Sunny Beach from Vlas there are two buses you can get on – no. 5 and no. 8....



Marmalad Restaurant in St Vlas Marina

This is one of the restaurants along the Marina at St Vlas.  When I say “restaurant” it’s actually where you can have a meal or just a drink and maybe a slice of cake – there’s a huge array to choose from – or an ice cream – yet another...
