This spacious double house is located in Galata, the historic district of Kotel (1850-1900).

“Niric” is a mixture of a small family hotel and guest house. Part of the house was destroyed by fire in the past but has been rebuilt back in its original style. This house has played an important role in the history of Kotel as the “Atanas Karaj Ivanovata home”. There even is an especially traditional song about this particular house. Once there ran a run-away from the house with an escape route to the mountains. Now the house is adjacent to the ethnographic complex of the city of Kotel.

The house is fully equipped for up to 12 guests and has one 3-person apartment with private bathroom, three 2-person rooms (two with private shower) and three 1-person rooms, salon, living and fully equiped kitchen. Wifi available. There are a total of 4 showers and 4 toilets, a large central lounge with veranda and a beautiful panorama view of the mountains, a huge walled garden with fruit trees and vegetable garden from which you can pick your own fruits, tomatoes and cucumbers and a large terrace. The rooms can be heated with a wood-fired stove or CH. The guest house Niric is normally offered by room but can also be rented as a whole for groups of up to 12 people. This house was purchased by us in 2006 and renovated in 2007/2008. In Niric the well known Bulgarian singer Galina Durmushliyska will be your host. Next to Bulgarian, Galina speaks "charming" Dutch.

Prices for season 2015 are: €13,- per person per night, including your € 1, = contribution to the "Clean Kotel fund”. Prices for the whole house with branch on request.
