Orlovo Gnezdo (Eagle Nest) Gela
Eagle Nest welcomes us with a sweet slogan 'Welcome to Gela - the Valley of bells and songs'. Indeed this is one of the most appealing places in the beautiful Rhodope mountain, a place, where traditions and authentic Bulgarian spirit still rule.
Eagle Nest Villa is situated in the upper end of the village and features 7 rooms and 3 apartments. All rooms and apartments have private facilities and balconies with beautiful views of the mountain and village. The apartments have kitchenettes. It is possible to rent a room or apartment only or the whole villa (total number of beds 20-25).
The surrounding area offers a huge choice of sightseeing and activity options - there are interesting archaelogical sites, pleasant hiking trails, picturesque caves, a ski-lift and more.
The biggest attraction, however, is the Saint Iliya Day Festival which takes place in the first week of August. This is when bagpipe music competition is held and local customs, food and drink step forward to put a 'forget me not' spell on all guests and visitors.
