Bulgarian locals 'make expats feel welcome'
Friendly locals and lower cost of living make Bulgaria
a firm favourite for many British expats, according to a source.
A report by the Sun aimed at uncovering the reality of leaving Britain
behind and relocating to the country surveyed the opinions of one couple who have spent two years in the country, in Yambol
Darren and Nikki Weeks suggested that, once they had beaten the language barrier and learned to cope with unfamiliar insects, they instantly felt a part of the community and experienced a better quality of life.
"Scary" driving on busier roads was offset by the fantastic and empty village roads, they said, while Bulgaria also boasts "really tasty" local produce and "wonderful" local traditions.
"I know in my heart I want to stay here," Mrs Weeks wrote.
Last month, Quest Bulgaria property magazine recommended that buyers could find "much more substantial" properties at affordable prices by turning away from popular ski and beach resorts to more rural locations.
