Lovely Villa, Great location
About Lesley Dodds
Hello, We are Lesley and Jimmy we are both retired and have been married for 42 years, we have two sons and four grandaughters. We are from the Northeast of England. We came to Bulgaria for the first time in 1994 and fell in love with all that it has to offer; hence when we took early retirement 12 years ago and bought land on the hillside of Inzaraki, St Vlas, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and built our properties which we are very proud to present for rental. We are sure you'll enjoy your holiday as much as we love living here.
Lesley Dodds purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Lesley Dodds chose Sveti Vlas
We bought land and built our properties in this location for the panaramic views of sea and mountains and the fact that it is so convenient for the resorts of the tranquil St Vlas, Lively Sunny Beach and the historic town of Nesseber. We are close enough but also far enough away from the hussle and bussle of Sunny Beach making it easy to retreat and relax. The locals are very friendly and always happy to help. We have a very good relationship with the local taxi drivers who always give our guests a great service. The air in the area is so pure which helps anyone with breathing problems, I suffer from asthma but only when back in the UK I dont have to use my medication when I am here. Sorry but unfortunately the properties are not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

Where do we start?! The taxi picked us up from the airport which Jimmy arranged for us, smooth journey to the villa, we arrived to a warm welcome from Jimmy who had also got us some essentials from the supermarket for when we arrived, we settled in and he took us on a tour of the surrounding area, also waited for us while we went to the supermarket!! He recommended a few restaurants and places to go which we took full advantage of.
The villas were perfect, clean tidy, modern with a lovely pool area.
If we ever needed anything, Jimmy and Lesley were on hand to make our trip as enjoyable as possible.
There were 2 families (4 adults 2 infants) and we hired one villa. More than enough room.
If you are thinking of renting this villa then I can’t recommend this enough.
Thankyou Jimmy and Lesley you were perfect hosts, we are gonna miss you... until next time...😁😁😁😁😁
Jimmy was excellent couldn't have been more helpful
Unfortunately nowhere does it say that you got to pay for electric and water on top of the cost to rent property, this is usually within price. Also the location is half way up a big hill without any tarmac roads, footpaths, the walk is on unmade tracks only. And every house on the walk back from sunny beach once you come off the main road has got big dogs that run free in there grounds and bark like mad as you walk pass making the kids scared.The dogs also are left out overnight and were always barking through out the night so dont go there if you want good nights sleep. Apart from the neighbouring properties with there dogs the property itself was perfect.
It was lovely to meet you and your family and great to hear you all had a great holiday. The water and electricity policy is clearly noted on the full HomeAway website advert, I’ve just checked and for whatever reason it doesn’t show on the mobile app. I will take this up with HomeAway, thanks for pointing that out. We do clearly state that the property is on a hillside and the roads within close vicinity of the property are uneven/gravel tracks therefore and unfortunately not suitable for people with mobility problems. Bulgarians are pet lovers and dogs are common in most households, there’s strict rules against letting dogs roam free so it’s good to hear all dogs you come across were behind gates. I’m sorry if you were disturbed by any dog noise, we’ve not had any complaints regarding dog noise before, I will monitor and address if required. Thanks for your feedback and hope to see you again, Lesley
Best holiday ever!
Only booked a week before we left and it was soley on the previous reviews. So glad to say that the holiday was amazing in every way. Hosts, accomodation, setting, weather were all 5 star. Lesley and Jimmy are the ultimate hosts. Any questions were answered before we left. Sorted airport transfers for us, and our taxi driver was lovely giving us his card which we used a great deal. Had a personal tour of the town and surrounding area when we arrived and gave us lots of advice on places to eat and visit which were incredible. Definitely planning on returning next year as Bulgaria ticked all our boxes and our hosts made it for us.
Villa Lucia was the ideal location for our first visit to Bulgaria
Villa Lucia is ideally situated for the beach, the local restaurants and amenities in Sveti Vlas and for walking in the foothills of the Eastern Balkan mountains.
The property is spacious and well equipped and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome with temperatures in the low 30C. Outside the swimming pool and covered seating/eating area were ideal after a day on the beach or walking in the hills.
Jimmy and Lesley went the extra mile to be helpful, getting groceries in for us on arrival, giving us a conducted tour of the local area and eateries and booking taxis when needed.
Overall a super holiday in a clean and well equipped villa in a great location.

When we arrived we were driven around the area by Jimmy, who even waited while we did a shop at the local supermarket.!!!! He managed to get us tickets for the show at the Tent restaurant, which was well worth a visit. He also had a lot of local knowledge, which came in useful. as we were out and about a lot of the time. The villa was very spacious airy and clean, and everything you needed was there making it very comfortable indeed. The pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds around it. The surrounding area was nice and quiet, and even the track down to the supermarket
was quite easy to manage. Jimmy and Lesley have a really lovely villa and they are very helpful and friendly as well. Even on our last day, when we found out our flight was to be delayed by 22 hours, we were offered another nights accommodation if it would make life easier.!!!! If we return to Bulgaria it would certainly be to this villa.
