We are an Irish Family also from county Down (coincidently).
We have a Villa in Balchik since 2006. we are near the Paris Hotel.
The Villa entrance on the left just before the Paris as you head into Balchik.
Again we are part timers and the boys ( husband and some work colleagues or relatives) usually visit in the spring to get some things done. while rest of us usually visit during school summer holidays. The boys sometimes visit again in September.
We are in our 40.s early 50s with two children one is 15 and the other is 20. The 20 year old rarely visits now.!
We would love to meet and get to know you.
The boys will most likely be back in the spring. So something could be arranged we are quite close really. There are quite a few English around Balchik that we know of.
Marymo would also love to meet you . I think perhaps our location in Ireland may be closer than that of Varna area. I recall that your husband mentioned to us on the forum, before that you are from Downpatrick and we are near kilkeel (Attical).
We would also be very interested in your advice and experience on driving over, as we would like to do that sometime soon too.
Weather here very very wet at the moment, with torrential rain at times. Imagine Varna area must be much nicer at the moment.
Regards to you both.
