Property in Arbanasi region for sale and rent
Arbanasi (or Arbanassi) is one of the most picturesque old settlements in Bulgaria. The village of Arbanasi is situated close to Veliko Tarnovo - it is only four kilometres away. It dates back to the 15th century and it is set on a plateau facing Tzarevetz and Trapezitsa hills. The picturesque atmosphere of the village is due to the unique architecture of the houses - each with high and strong surrounding walls and massive wooden gates.
During the XVI-th and the XVII-th centuries the houses in the village acquired their typical imposing appearance. Today, they look like strongholds with their high stone walls, but their outer facades contrast with their inside coziness and comfort. The ceilings, doors, furniture and windows are abundant in wood-carving and the walls in plaster ornaments.
The whole complex is a remarkable site. The famous Arbanasi houses are unique. The oldest buildings are similar with the Tarnovo boyar house. They are like small fortresses, completely made of stone. They have strong stone gates and sentry – boxes. It is not only the remarkable houses that are very interesting in Arbanasi. There are spectacular fountains with big eaves – Kokonska and Pazarska fountains and the seven Arbanassi churches are among the most – remarkable monuments of the Bulgarian art.
