As an ancestor to the former Complex Experimental Station in Sandanski, the terrain is unique, comprised of interesting plant species and history. The terrain and the winery that accompanies the complex inspired to the vision of Tuscany villa.
An exciting and at the same time challenging task for the entire team on this project. Reconstruction started in September 2017 with approved construction permit. based on the layout, hotel Villa Sintica comprises of 23 double rooms and 2 apartments, guarded parking area, restaurant, wellness center with jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna, gym, massage and therapy room. The hotel has a central heating and cooling system. In addition, two outdoor swimming pools were constructed – for children and adults – accompanies by pool bar, children playground and large outdoor terraces for the main restaurant. Right next to the hotel building is Sintica Winery, home of one of the most prominent wines in Bulgaria and a patent owner of Melnik 55 wine sort.

In order to be successful, a hotel needs a great level of service and product, but also a great restaurant. We are very proud to have claimed the most prominent restaurant position in a very short timeframe. We invested in kitchen equipment matching the highest standards and quality as our restaurant policy is to prepare everything from scratch and finish most of the dishes with sous vide technology evident in Michelin stared restaurants.
One of the biggest assets of Villa Sintica are the large gardens and plant species. Over 20 acres which we enriched and planted to accompany the exotic species that have been a heritage for over 70 years from the former Experimental Station. The gardens are filled with olives, cypress trees, figs, pomegranates, bamboo forest and many more Mediterranean and exotics species.
Hotel Villa Sintica officially opened doors for its guests in September 2018. All of us that invested and contributed to realizing the vision of Villa Sintica, believe that the outcome is a unique place, conductor of positive energy and will very soon become the most sought after destination in the region.
