Welcome to Runya Lodge.

A traditional old style Bulgarian homestead that is tucked gently away in the scenic village of Runya. This beautiful renovation is home to Petsy, Andy and Mario. Throughout the year they extend their home to welcome visitors with open arms, from near and far.

The main house and connecting old farm stone buildings wrap around the edges of a large grassy courtyard. Making this property a secluded retreat. 

Situated in the foothills of the dramatic Stara Planina mountains, you can expect to find your own little piece of heaven here. From sunrise to sunset, peaceful views over the valley invite you to slow down and embrace Bulgarian life.

Hello, friends!

“We are a family who loves entertaining our guests. It is our great pleasure to meet new people and make new friendships because that’s how everybody feels upon leaving us.

We go above and beyond to ensure that your holiday surpasses everything you could have dreamt of. All that nitty gritty plotting and planning is totally taken care of so you simply just turn up, relax… and, enjoy!

We look forward to you joining us.”

With love from Andy, Petsy & Mario.

Our House

This traditional Bulgarian house features 4 personally styled rooms, each is a unique mix of style, charm and practicality.

We offer exceptional hospitality. Indulging the adventure driven souls, the hopeless romantics and the weary traveller alike.

The land of the property is safe and secure with a large garden area and a swimming pool for those days when you fancy a dip!

Adjacent to the garden is our open summer kitchen where there is a large dining table to serve our delicious home cooked meals.

There’s something extra flavoursome about a mountain raised lamb slow-cooked in a fire oven served with organic vegetables. The kind of feast that melts in your mouth and is, in every way, worthy of you helping yourself to more. 

We do cater to all dietary requirements (pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan etc…)  and we use locally sourced produce for all meats, veggies and dairy.

There is an undercover BBQ area, complete with a pool table and darts board to keep everyone entertained as the warm dusks roll in.

We fantasised this space to be somewhere to kick back, relax and to enjoy yourselves.

And, we don’t stop there…

To perfect our easygoing paradise, we have a balcony area with knockout panoramic views. 

Chilling in the hammock surveying the Balkan Mountains with a refreshing beer in hand is simply magical. This space was designed for ultimate tranquility… offering yoga and meditation to those who enjoy this.
