The village of St.
Vlas, located next to the holiday resort of Sunny Beach- Nessebar,
is one of the fast growing communities in Bulgaria. Sunny Beach is
a resort area, comprised of numerous hotels, night clubs, shops and
restaurants. The beach at the resort is 8 km (5 miles) long and boasts
fine sand and a developed area with sunbeds and umbrellas. South of
Sunny Beach is located the ancient “island village” of
Nessebar. Now connec-ted to the mainland by a man made causeway, the
town’s origins began around 72 AD as a Roman garrison. In the
2nd Century AD, a town was built by the Thracian civilisation which
was called Mesambria. In 510 AD, the Dorians coloni-zed the town and
in 680 AD the town came under the rule of Bulgarian Byzantine emperors.
In 1956 the town became an architectural and archeological reserve.
Still standing are the original gate and fortifications from the 3rd
and 4th Centuries AD. There are a number of Byzantine churches still
standing from the 5th and 6th Centuries AD. Hou-ses unique to the
Black Sea Coast were built in Nessebar during the Bulgarian Revival
period after 1878. Nessebar has become one of the most popular tourist
destinations in Bulgaria over the past 10 years.
St. Vlas has rapidly become the “villa centre” of the
Sunny Beach-Nessebar region. A number of villa complexes are already
built in the area, with demand far exceeding supply. It is estimated
that approximately 70% of all units which are currently being built
are sold “off plan” before construction has even begun.
St. Vlas is by far the premier spot to build holiday apartments on
the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast at this time. If Bulgaria is to join
the European Union as expected by the end of 2007, considerable appreciation
is expected throu-ghout the Bulgarian real estate market, with holi-day
apartments expected to lead the way and appreciate the most in value.
