Zornitza Family Estate - Melnik, Bulgaria
The family mansion Zornitza Family Estate (Relais & Châteaux) was born out of a dream – to create a complex in which luxury and nature are in perfect harmony. So we chose this location, because of the feeling of peace, beauty and tradition. So we decided to make it a family type – in order to feel good with your closest friends. Hospitality is transformed into philosophy, and our attitude to food and wine quality – raised in cult.
