Property for sale in Bulgaria

Currently one of the least populated European states, Bulgaria is approximately the size of England, but with a population of only 8 million people. Not only enjoying 354km of Black Sea coastline with 10 blue flag beaches, the country also boasts 37,000km of mountainous hiking paths, a series of Roman, Greek and Thracian historical attractions, including nine UNESCO world heritage sites and a blossoming ski culture.

Property in Bulgaria

Bulgaria has captured the imagination of British bargain hunters in recent years. With housing stock ranging from seaside apartments and villas on the Black Sea coast, to ski lodges in resorts like Bansko and Borovets, traditional village homes inland, and flats in the capital, Sofia, the country offers property to suit all tastes, at prices way lower than in most of the rest of Europe. Off-plan developments in the Black Sea regions have proved particularly popular with investors hoping to capitalise on Bulgaria's entry into the EU, although some pundits forecast an eventual over-supply of property, and point to poor quality construction and lax planning controls.
