The mountain Villa ARTE
is set in a quiet part of BOROVETS resort in old pine woods in Rila
mountain, hidden from the daily noise and commotion, at an altitude
of 1250 m, only 70 km southeast of Sofia.
The villa was built in 1941 by the famous Bulgarian
architect Bitchev, who successfully created - like Antonio Gaudi did
in Spain - an esthetical unity from the doorhandle to the fireplace. At
that time the impressive wall painting was created by the famous
Bulgarian artist Prof. Obreshkov.
In 1944 the first meeting of the Bulgarian high
ranking anti Nazi politicians took place in the house, which
initiated the negotiations with the allied forces.
