Momchilovtsi is located in the South East in
the Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria and in heart
of the Central Rhodopes. It is just a short drive
from the Pamporovo Ski Resort and its Municipality
Town of Smolyan.This Rhodope village is placed
high in the mountains with an altitude of 1070-1280m
and lies 240 km from the International Airports
of Sofia and 80 km from Plovdiv and 14 km from
the nearest town of Smolyan.
Getting to Momchilovtsi - A bus
service runs from Sofia Bus Station to Pamporovo
a couple of times a day. This bus also stops at
Plovdiv. With the recent opening of the new Plovdiv
Airport the transfer to Momchilovtsi has been
significantly reduced from the 4 hours from Sofia
to 2 hours from Plovdiv.
We can also recommend a reliable, friendly and
competive company who do airport transfers and
car hire for very competitive prices.
The journey by road is very straightforward
from both airports and is well signposted in both
English and Bulgarian.
The main route is from Plovdiv
to Smolyan. When travelling South from Sofia,
Plovdiv or central Bulgaria the mountain journey
starts at Asenovgrad and travels up past Narechenski,
Narechenski Bani, Hvyona, Chepelare and Pamporovo.
At the very top when you reach
the wide open space of Rozhen (about 5 minutes
from the right turn for Pamporovo) there is a
road junction. Carry on straight on down the mountain
road until you reach Sokolovci. Halfway through
Sokolovci is the left hand turning for Momchilovtsi
