About this listing
F14 is lovely. On the fourth floor in a complex set above the town F14 has magnificent views of the mountains and valley from its two balconies.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms each with 2 single beds which can push together and the larger can take a camp bed and cot. The main room overlooks the valley and has a double sofa bed, flat screened TV, DVD player and a selection of DVDs, books and games to while away a pleasant evening. The kitchen is well fitted with 4ring hob, oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave etc and plenty of utensils and crockery. We have grandchildren so there are extras to help with them.
Bansko is an all year resort. In winter it is a World Cup ski resort with 75km of runs and a longest run of 16km. Excellent for beginners and intermediates it also has off piste to challenge the adventurous. F14 is just a short walk of 200m across from the slope for the short ski down to the gondola station.
In summer the Pirin National Park just meters away from F14 is a UNESCO World Heritage site with short and long distant hiking and all the usual mountain pursuits. While in quaint Bansko there are many events such as the International Jazz festival.
Bansko has over 100 places to eat many being local mehanas or taverns. There are also lots of little shops and museums to explore.
In winter the Mountain Dream hotel is open and in 2011 the restaurant was excellent. In summer the nearest good restaurant is just 50m away.
This is our holiday home so please treat it with respect. Thank you.
About the Host, Valerie
Hi, I am a retired health visitor who still has a passion for mountains, skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. A few years ago we were lucky enough to be able to buy an apartment in Bansko, Bulgaria. Bansko is the top ski resort of the country and an entry to the UNESCO recognised Pirin National Park which contains some 50 peaks over 2500m. Our apartment is at the entry to the park and close to the skiing. It is a great place to be at every time of the year. We love our apartment and have tried to make it as comfortable as possible. Generally we visit twice a year once to ski and once to enjoy the high mountains in the hot summers.
