Bulgaria is one of the countries with most mineral springs in Europe making it an extremely attractive spa destination with centuries-long traditions in spa treatment and balneology. Bulgaria is one of the acknowledged leaders in the sphere of balneology and that is why to buy or rent a property in a spa resort is a very lucrative investment.
Bulgaria has more than 600 mineral water springs with a flow over 5,000 liters per second. The healing qualities of Bulgarian mineral waters have been known from ancient times, some of the most famous balneotherapy sanatoriums date back to Roman times. The mineral waters in Bulgaria are known for their varied chemical composition and temperature. In the Northern Bulgaria there are mostly cold mineral water springs (up to 37 degrees Celsius) and in the Southern Bulgaria - warm springs (from 37 to 60 degrees Celsius) and hot springs (over 60 degrees Celsius). The warm and hot mineral water springs are located mainly in the valley of the Struma river and Mesta river and the northern foot of the Western Rhodopes Mountain. The hottest mineral spring in the country is set in Sapareva Banya (101.4 degrees Celsius).
The combination of mineral water and healing mud is favourable for year-round recreation, treatment and rest. The best known spa resorts in Bulgaria are Velingrad, Sandanski, Banya, Hisarya, Devin, Sapareva Banya, Tuzlata, Pavel Banya, Kyustendil and Pomorie.
Properties for sale and rent in spa resorts in Bulgaria are yet to become popular as considerable investments are planned to be made in this sector. What one must have in mind is that the regions connected to balneology and spa tourism are not seasonal but year-round tourist destinations, which means property buyers can enjoy their property in a spa resort all year long.
One of the main factors which buyers take into consideration when buying a holiday home in a spa resort is the infrastructure and whether the flat is a part of a development offering a variety of amenities and services.
