Omaya Holiday Village
Omaya is a one-of-a-kind holiday village hidden deep in the forests of the Rhodope Mountains some 19 kilometres away from the town of Gotse Delchev and right next to the Greek border. The signs on the road will take you straight to the mysterious gates of this eco haven which sprawls on an area of 120 acres of land, forest and fishing lakes. The access is, of course, limited, but that's only done to make sure all the village's guests will get the rest they deserve in the most pleasant and peaceful atmosphere possible. What you will see inside this complex is so utterly amazing that it can hardly be described in plain words... still let's give it a try.
There are seven unconventional houses spread all around the village awaiting you. Each one flaunts a unique design and is made of natural materials such as clay, stone and wood. The trick here is that there aren't any maps or directions providing information about their location, i.e. you have to explore the village and discover them on your own. Once you find your place you will realise that the houses are built so far away from each other that you may not see any of the other guests at all... and this is always an important prerequisite for a relaxing holiday. The inside of your house will impress you just as well. It is equipped with all the amenities a 21st century person needs, including a modern bath, king-size bed next to large windows offering beautiful views of the ancient coniferous and deciduous trees outside and even a TV for those who cannot break away from civilization... no Internet connection, though. But you certainly won't miss it as Omaya provides heaps of other exciting surprises.
First come the cool, majestic woods of the complex that are perfect for leisurely strolls, herb gathering and picnics and the two lakes where one can spend hours fishing or boat riding. Then there is the luring swimming pool with the comfortable deckchairs and fluffy pillows whose inviting liquid tranquility mixes exquisitely with the songs of the birds and the ancient magnificence of the surrounding forest and evaporates every drop of tension or discomfort. Alternatively, you can simply order a sweet cocktail and hang out in the nearby bar.
Food is also a highlight at Omaya. Just go to the little restaurant at the village's entrance and tell your kind hosts what you are hungry for. They will transform your desire into a delicious meal which you can enjoy either at your house or in the restaurant
