Visits & Tours
Enio Bonchev is operating the oldest, built in 1909, still fully functioning Rose oil distillery in Bulgaria.
Over the years people from all over the world have been very interested and eager to come visit us, witness the unique rose and lavender production and experience the spirit and fragrance of the Rose Valley.
At our old distillery people are able to observe the traditional ways of distillation dating back to hundreds of years ago while at the same time learn about the new trends and production practices.
Rose harvest in Bulgaria happens only once per year - from mid-May till mid-June. During this period of time we receive guests and visitors who want to learn new and interesting facts about the cultivation of Rosa Damascena, Rose Alba and Rose Centifolia, the rose distillation process itself, rose picking and why the Bulgarian rose oil is so valuable, how it is used and what is the effect of the rose products on our body.
One of the biggest attractions is to take part in the rose picking at our own rose gardens and after collecting flowers to make Rose water using the old-fashion, traditional method of distillation.
Guests can also visit our family museum and gift shop where they can buy genuine traditional souvenirs furnished with our own production of Natural Bulgarian Rose and Lavender essential oils and floral waters.
Everyone is welcome to visit us! We have developed close relationships with numerous Bulgarian and international tour agencies which organize group visits throughout the year.
