Bansko is a mediaeval town nestled in the basin of the Pirin National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site. It's a charming town that has beautiful architecture, churches and Mehanas (taverns). The town is steeped in history, but has adapted well to the development of a ski and summer resort.
The new town is lively, fun and varied. Bansko is perfect for partying with friends or as a sophisticated retreat for couples. There are clubs, bars, restaurants, spas an ice rink and bowling alley for family entertainment.
Skiing in Bansko is varied. Ideal for beginners and children (there is a safe sectioned ski kindergarten) as well as advanced skiers and snow boarders. There are 70km of pisted runs in Bansko and the highest point is 2,800m at the top of Todorka. Bansko is a snow-sure resort and the winter season runs from mid-December to mid-April. All lifts, gondolas and chairs are less than 10 years old and there are plenty of places on the mountain for lunch and refreshments.
Summer in Bansko is busy too. The National Park attracts a lot of adventure walkers, fishing, horse riding, golf and several hotels open their spas and swimming pools. Also, in August every year, Bansko hosts a Jazz Festival.
If you are flying into Sofia and require transport transfer I can recommend Bansko express for transfers. Reliable, cheap (£24 return) and generally comfortable. The transfer is 2 hours.
Excellent time in the snow, perfect house for a ski trip
The apartment is great, well located, and very spacious for a ski rental.
The Wellness centre facilities (sauna, steam room and hot tub) are free, readily available and run by a helpful and efficient house staff.
There is also a free laundry room.
The hosts are friendly and answered all our questions very quickly in the run-up to our trip.
We (four persons) stayed at Nathan and Jo's apartment for 13 days this winter. Our stay was absolutely wonderful: apartment is bright and well warmed. After a day of skiing we could enjoy health center (whirlpool, sauna, steam-bath) and then spend rest of the evening playing board games by the fireplace. Or to go out to enjoy nice Bulgarian cuisine - plenty of mehanas (small Bulgarian restaurants) are available in walk distance. Gondola station is also in a walk distance, what makes this apartment a nice place for skiers. Very friendly and qualified concierge, cozy lobby with wireless internet and laundry with dryers are finishing touches that make this apartment a great choice for a winter (and for a summer as well) holidays in good company.
Nathan is very friendly and responsive host - all of our questions, he answered operatively and exhaustively. Recommend!
