Food: a fully equipped kitchen and barbecue are available, as well as supplies of lasting products such as salt, cooking oil, sugar, onions, etc. You need to bring any perishables that you would like to cook with you. If you have not bought products in the city that you are departing from, you can do it in any of the towns on the way (Chepelare or Devin), or, as a last stop, in Shiroka Luka. Smaller settlements in the Rhodopes might have no milk in the stores.
New Service: Since the beginning of March, we offer customized menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner and prepare traditional local dishes to satisfy your taste and desire. In addition, our guests have the opportunity to purchase flavor homemade food products such as eggs, milk and yoghurt. For further information on our new service, please contact the host of the house Atanas Karadjov – tel. 0889 969 106.
Note: We do not welcome pets in the house unless you have a special agreement with the owner. Please contact him at: 00359 510 061.
Banks and money: the nearest ATMs are in Pamporovo, Devin and Shiroka Luka. You cannot count on electronic cards in the region, so you need to have enough cash and change on you. For banking that is more complicated or other administrative services, you would need to go to Smolyan or Devin.
First aid: the nearest hospitals are in Smolyan and Devin. The one in Smolyan is larger and has more specialists available.
Transportation: public transportation in the region is poorly developed and it would be best if you could rely on your own vehicle. There are several buses every day from Sofia to Smolyan, departing from Tsentralna Avtogara (Central Bus Station). There are buses from Sofia to Devin on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in 17:00, departing from Avtogara Yug (Bus Station South). There are several buses every day from Plovdiv to Smolyan and Devin, departing from Avtogara Rodopi (Rhodopes Bus Station). There is a bus line between Smolyan and Devin, which stops at Shiroka Luka. Hitchhiking is a typical way of getting around in this part of Bulgaria.
