According to the real estate agencies in Veliko Tarnovo, the main factors behind one such tendency are the calm and peaceful life in Veliko Tarnovo villages, the fresh air and the stunning nature, as well as the good infrastructure and the reasonable prices of the rural properties.
The migration process is likely to continue given the large number of projects that are to be developed by big investors. There are already about 50 approved plans for building “satellite neighbourhoods” in the suburbs of Veliko Tarnovo.
And another interesting thing that has been noticed, this time in relation to small towns: a drift towards villages has been registered there too, and it has a lot to do with the cost of living. The flow from small towns to Veliko Tarnovo villages has become a common thing due to the opportunities for agriculture, animal breeding, etc. The idea to produce their own food attracts people and they choose the villages both for organic farming practices development and the chance for lowering the expenses on food.
An example in this respect is the new villa zone that has started to develop near the small town Debelets. The first luxury houses are already built and expecting their new owners. A similar process is observed in Pavlikeni, Svishtov, Suhindol.
And last but not least, a good reason for delving into the “rural adventure” is the nature factor, the peace and serenity of the country life. Veliko Tarnovo villages have a lot to offer in this regard: plenty of eco paths ( Emen eco-path, Hotnishka eco-path, the eco-path to the Preobrajenski Monastery, leading to Kartala falls and revealing a panoramic view of the old part of Veliko Tarnovo ), the stunningly beautiful Hotnishki , Emenski and Kapinovski waterfalls, the big reservoirs Stamboliisky and Yovkovtsi where one can go camping, fishing, waterskiing, sailing or simply enjoying the gorgeous nature.
