The climate in Bulgaria in summer is a lot like what most of us will know from the popular holiday destinations in Greece and Turkey. An abundance of sunshine all summer, pleasantly warm already in May, and it will be hot in July and August. Luckily, on a coastline along a big mass of sea water like the Black Sea, you will have the advantage of a breeze that picks up whenever the land is a lot hotter than the sea. Therefore, the hottest days in July and August are mostly blessed with a good sea breeze.
There are more than 240 hours of sunshine in May and September and more than 300 hours in July and August. The area's average air temperature in summer is about 28°C, with the average water temperature at 26°C. In July and August daytime temperatures will peak at more then 32°C or even higher and the evenings will be well above 20°C. And of course, when summer progresses, the sea water warms up more and more. It gets to a significant 28°C sea water temperature at some places by the end of August! Can you imagine, your private pool, catching the sun all day long, how nice and warm that will be?
May is a wonderful time at the Bulgarian Riviera. Everything is green, lush and flowering, the sun is high in the sky and days are long. The average temperature is 23 Celsius in the shade and add another 6 - 8 degrees for how it feels in the sun. So that is seriously warm, but not as hot as having to avoid the sun or being hooked to the swimming pool for most of the day. May and September are possibly the best time of the year if you want to mix the pleasures of a beach holiday with the adventure of exploring new horizons and unspoiled local culture. Even April and November (dates and prices on request) are a perfect time to visit Villa Magdalen if your primary focus is not beach and pool-side leisure. Unlike other holiday villa's, in Villa Magdalen the air conditioning can be switched to heating. You can enjoy the delights of spring, or the lazy autumn days, without a worry about the odd cool morning or chilly evening.
