Once back in England it was finger twiddling time for a few
weeks waiting for the property company to post the plans on their web site, and after a few phone calls and e-mails it
appeared somewhat later than expected.
We then set about choosing the one we wanted based on m2 of
the apartment, accesibility, and design. We chose the ground floor because of the large patio and the fact it had a balcony
that went right round from the bedroom to meet that patio (Something which later nearly didn't happen)so you
could walk right round the whole of the outside whilst still being on the balcony.
Not much happened in the ensuing weeks/months and we were
not due to go out again till June so it was just a case of looking at things to buy here to take over there such as duvets
and covers, things we knew we could buy over there but didn't like the colours of.
Time however passed quite quickly and we were soon off again
this time flying to Bourgas direct from Birmingham and staying in an apartment outside nessebar which we were somewhat dismayed
to find when we got there in the middle of the night had no curtains on any of the windows.
An oversight by the furnishing company? We were told they
would be fitted whilst we were there but that never happened. It's amazing how forgetful you get and by the end
of the week I was amazed not to have been arrested for flashing.
We had arranged to meet the property company to go and
have a look at progress & to be quite honest I was a little suprised to find only the footings had been done and thought
then that if this is going to be done on schedule then I'm a Dutchman. (My name's not Hans)
So as we could not see what they were going to be looking
like we asked to see one that was nearly complete and were taken about half a mile away to another small complex exactly the
same as Sianella. The build was good quality, we liked the look of the whole thing and were quite happy.
We wanted to see a kitchen but could not be shown one so later
that week went looking for one and found a place in St. Vlas that sold Italian kitchens at quite a good price & they
designed it there and then on the spot for us, then the owner took us to see some properties he had furnished and fitted
out with kitchens.
They were excellent quality so we decided to go with
them. No money changed hands at that point only business cards for us to contact them later on.
