About this listing
For a great ski holiday you cannot do better than our apartment. Cozy and warm, it provides a welcome retreat after a hard days skiing. Located near the ski lift and a short walk from bars, restaurants and shops, you are right where you need to be.
Relaxing & comfortable, this apartment provides a cosy retreat after a hard day's skiing. The two level layout provides ample storage as well as a generous living area. While within walking distance of the Gondola, restaurants, bars and the Old Town, the apartment lies on the edge of the Pirin National Park with beautiful mountain views. The main gondola station is a short walk (300m) from the apartment.
The apartment is well-equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD, comfortable furnishings, hot refreshing showers (fully enclosed cubicles, not wet bathrooms) and warm central heating. The Pirin Height facility has an heated swimming pool, bar area, sauna and friendly English-speaking staff.
Bansko is nestled in the Pirin and Rhodope mountains at an elevation of 872m. As well as a quaint Old Town, with cobbled streets and small cosy bars, Bansko has an exciting mixture of well prepared ski tracks, modern lift infrastructure, many attractions, beautiful nature and warm hospitality that suits young and old, beginner or expert.
Bansko offers 75km of great ski runs, split 30% beginners; 40% intermediate & 30% expert, with the highest elevation at 2600m. In 2010 & 2011 Bansko hosted FIS World Championship ski races. Ski facilities are well organised and efficient with plenty of apres ski in the evenings, traditional and international restaurants, shops, museums, churches and many other sightseeing opportunities.
In the summer Bansko is an ideal location to explore the surrounding mountains and experience a wide range of outdoor activities: biking, mountaineering, rafting, fishing and walking.
Pirin Heights is ideally located close to the gondola lift on the edge of the forest, yet within short walking distance of bars, shops and restaurants - near enough but not too close.
This is indeed a cozy and nice warm apartment with plenty of space for four persons. Perfect for two couples or a couple with two children. Communication with the hosts and arrival/departure went smoothly. We spent a great week in the apartment and found everything to be according to the description.
Please note that in the building, the nice warm swimming pool is not co-located with the sauna, and at the pool there are inadequate shower facilities for washing before/after swimming.
A lovely apartment. Had everything we needed to have a great few days skiing. Comfy bed and nice hot showers. We had a nice smooth check in with the friendly guy on reception too. Didn't use the kitchen as there is lots of restaurants serving great food for very little money but all the facilities are there if you want them. The apartment is about a 10/15 minute walk to the gondola down a pretty steep hill, not so great in boots on the way back but you can get storage facilities for a few levs by the gondola. All in all a great trip and a nice place to stay.
It was wonderful vacation! Apartment is amazing . It has everything you need . Close to the city centr and to gondola lift. Bad wifi inside of apartment but on 1st floor it was ok. We are really appreciate David and Jane to let us spend our vacation in their apartment. Thank you David and Jane !
Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Apartment big, clean and very nice. Towels was provided and also they have hairdryer. Good plus is collection of DVD movies and games. Nice pool and spa especially after all day skiing.. Nice atmosphere, excellent location for ski trail and for the restaurants and bars. Internet connection not working in apartment but in restaurant area or in lobby it works good.
Big thank you to the girl at the reception, She is very friendly and helpful!
Appartement sympa, bien situé à moins de 10mn à pied de la Gondola. Sauna et piscine de l'immeuble agréable.
Concerning the apartment, please note:
1. The photos are exactly representative of what you get - new furniture - fully equipped, 100% perfect.
2. The heating in the apartment and the building is excellent (i.e. very hot).
3. The location is great just a couple of minutes walk to the ski road that leads/skis down to the Gondola.
4. The room was not ready when we arrived, and was done later that day, (cleaning is not Bulgarians most strongest point).
5. The internet reception is very weak in the apartment and thus I had to use the lobby on the 1st floor to do my evening work, but the very sweet and helpful girl at the reception (Ani) gave us the password from the royal bansko building - as that signal seemed to be stronger
In general a great place to stay, we strongly recommend it.
Thank you, Jane and David
My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. The listing and photos are true to life. The apartment and the location are great, short walk to the main gondola station and nightlife. Although it was quite cold outside during our stay, the apartment was very warm and cozy. Great DVD collection, which comes in handy after a long day on the slopes. Jane and the management company onsite were extremely responsive. If I'm back to Bansko, I'll definitely stay here.
