Looking for the best places in Bulgaria available to rent on Airbnb? Bulgaria might not be a big or popular tourist destination, although it is home to some really beautiful places, stunning mountains and charming towns like Veliko Tarnovo.

Did you know that Bansko is one of the upcoming digital nomad destinations in Europe? Or that Plovdiv, the second-largest city after Sofia, is considered the oldest inhabited city in Europe?

We have visited Bulgaria several times over the years and we can also recommend a few days spent on the Bulgarian coast, relaxing on the beach and swimming in the Black Sea. Stara Zagora is another small town where you can stop for half a day or you can come to the Festival of Roses, which is one of Bulgaria's most well-known events. 

We have selected some of the best villas, apartments and places to stay in Bulgaria, available to rent on Airbnb from reliable hosts (with Superhost status on Airbnb). All the places on our list also have Wi-Fi, which can be useful if you plan to work remotely from Bulgaria during your stay.
