Zornitza Family Estate
Nestled off the beaten track among the vineyards of southern Bulgaria, Zornitza Family Estate presents a luxury wellness hideaway for discerning travellers.
Private and intimate, the charming oasis boasts 15 luxury rooms and villas, surrounded by sweeping vineyards, organic farmland and orchards bearing cherries, apples and citrus fruit. The volcanic soil of the Melnik region has endowed the rolling hills with juicy grapes, producing over 300 wine varieties to sample during your stay. Mineral-rich mud is blended into healing treatments showcased at the luxury spa, as well as honey, terroir, lavender and olive oil from the gardens.
As a member of Relais & Chateaux, gastronomy is a feast for the senses with fresh ingredients and playful dishes. Get out and explore with refreshing mountain hikes and cycle between the 13 neighbouring vineyards and wineries. Grape harvest season is a special time to visit when you can get involved whilst learning the art of winemaking with the local sommeliers.
Sustainability sits at the heart of the eco-friendly estate, with extensive organic farming and an impressive tree planting project taking place in the grounds. Natural produce in abundance, so everything prepared in the kitchen and spa treatments is as local as can be.
