Discover the acclaimed Melnik wine region and visit local wineries, vineyards and cellars, all within a 30-minute drive from Zornitza. Take a tour of Orbelus, Kapatovo Gardens and Villa Melnik, which is a family-owned estate with a 200-year-old history of wine-making, and has 30 hectares of vineyards as well as a modern winery.
Learn about Melnik’s history in various museums or explore the unique architecture of the houses in the town: visit the most popular houses, like Litova House and Bolyarska House, which is the oldest standing house in Bulgaria, and see the stunning waterfalls and sand pyramids of the area. We recommend the lovely hike from Melnik to the Rozhen monastery, via the pyramids - stop for lunch afterwards at a traditional Bulgarian restaurant in Rozhen.
Take a one-hour trip to the Greek beaches or to one of Bulgaria’s top ski resorts, go horse riding or enjoy a rafting trip on the Struma River. Also close by are biking tracks and eco trails, or treat yourself to the memorable experience of a hot air balloon flight over the estate, with unbeatable views from above of your beautiful location.
