"We enjoyed the catered five-course Gourmet Wine Tasting Dinner – part of our reservation ‘package' – the likes of which I can honestly say I have never had in Bulgaria. Each course was accompanied by a different bottle of wine. The wines' qualities were explained to us by Ognian Tsvetanov, an internationally renown sommelier who speaks excellent English. Ognian helped us discover the true taste of each one and made us look at Bulgarian wines with new eyes."~ Excerpts from Article in March 10, 2003 edition of Sofia Echo.

Jamadvice Travel's Monthly Travel Guide: "It would be no exaggeration to say that the Villa Stresov would be equally at home in the most exclusive ski resorts of France or Switzerland. It is pure unashamed luxury. Owned by the Nielsen Family, no expense has been spared both in the design and building of the villa as well as in the furnishings and appliances within it. From sauna to the whirlpool tubs in the bathrooms to the state-of-the-art kitchen; the villa is quite simply second to none."
