About the cottage

Elena Balkan district is situated in the northern parts of Stara Planina in the Pre-Balkan. It is characterized by its mild relief, many pastures and meadows, deciduous forests and many springs and rivers. The average altitude is 500-600 m.

Miro’s Cottage is just to the north of Elena, next to Yovkovtsi dam. It is situated at a peaceful and sunny spot in the romantic and lively village of Tarkasheni – with a breath-taking view to the Central Stara Planina crest, perfect for relaxation and a starting point for cultural tourism. The village lies 3,5 km north of the centre of Elena. There are at least 3 parking spaces in the yard of the cottage. The cottage consists of a ground floor and a basement floor. Guests use the ground floor and can reach it via stone staircase and then through a solid oak door. There is a spacious verandah, a hallway, three guest-rooms, a living-room with a kitchen box, bathroom and a toilet at the ground floor. At 2009 Miro’s Cottage has been entirely reconstructed by the infamous craftsman from Elena – Petko Lazarov, who kept the original elements of the life of our ancestors and used characteristic architectural elements from the building tradition of Elena – for example the “saray sachak” at the roof construction, stone walls, port with a roof, stone flaggings and characteristic wooden details. The original hearth has been kept inside, as well as the wooden coating of the ceiling (karatavan), original doors with antique hardware, heating systems consisting of warm air moving through ducts (dzhamali).


The atmosphere in Miro’s Cottage and Tarkasheni is enhanced by the nature and the local people living around. A tit, starling or a lark will wake you up in the morning, swallows will be arranging their nests all day long, you will hear how the bell of the village church echoes and leaves a footprint through the ages and in your soul. During the night you can watch the Milky Way intoxicated and unbelieving that you can almost touch the sky.
