Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Neon is a superbly located apartment complex and this is one of the best apartments in the building. Spacious and well appointed, it allows a family or large group to enjoy a relaxing holiday with home from home comforts. The kitchen is well set up (with a proper oven) and all the furniture is hand made from local wood. The apartment has two bedrooms separated from the living/dining room by a large hallway which means the grown ups can enjoy apres ski whilst little ones catch up on their sleep.
Whilst many advertisers say their apartment is close to the gondola, ours really is. You can check how busy the gondola is from the balcony and be at the foot of the mountain in two minutes. When the snow is good you can ski all the way home! The apartment is peaceful and cosy, but only minutes away from night life, bars, restaurants, ice rink and all of Bansko's exciting night life. Big hotels with excellent spa, pool and gym facilities are in walking distance as are shops, pubs and cafes.

Furniture is hand crafted from local wood giving the apartment a warm feel. A large entrance hall provides storage for mountain bikes and skis. There is a bathroom with bath and shower, and separate toilet. A wet room houses the washing machine and dryer. The two bedrooms are at one end of the hall and the living space at the other meaning that children can sleep peacefully whilst adults enjoy their evening. The kitchen is set up for those who like to cook and there is enough crockery and glassware for ten people. The sofa beds are comfortable and all linen is of very good quality. There is plenty of storgage for clothing and suitcases. Living room features a surround sound TV/DVD player. We have had five adults and two children and a baby stay in the apartment without it feeling cramped. The apartment is warm in winter and the views from the living/dining room picture windows are stunning.

The complex is in a quiet street just off the main thoroughfare. Cars pass but you are just as likely to see a few horses or cows wandering along! There is a small balcony with great views of the mountains. The apartment has its own garage space available to renters. There is a communal barbecue area and jacuzzi and sauna are due to be finished soon. The building has security on at all times and there is a working lift.
We can provide a welcome pack if you wish, and an English speaking representative can be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. Mid-stay cleaning and linen change is available.
The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
Some 160 kms from Sofia and only a short drive from the Greek border, the Pirin Mountains provide excellent hiking, biking, fishing, whitewater rafting and horse riding opportunities in summer and over 70km of ski runs in the winter. Bansko has the longest ski season in Bulgaria with snow on the pistes from mid December until the end of March, sometimes April. The region is very rural, with farming and wine producing the main industries. There are many interesting towns and tourist attractions nearby to visit, including the Rila monastery, thermal springs, the wine town of Melnik and a bear sanctuary.
Bansko itself is a UNESCO world heritage site featuring a medieval church and interesting post-Soviet and traditional statues and architecture. It retains a unique identity despite the tourist trade, and is small enough to be able to explore properly on foot. Bansko is well set up for self catering tourists and the Sunday market sells everything from fresh vegetables to cow bells and locally produced knit wear. It has traditional festivals throughout the year and an internationally recognised jazz festival in August. Despite increased development to the ski zone and general improvements to the infrastructure of the town, Bansko retains a rural charm through its cobbles narrow streets, timber lined restaurants serving delicious meals and local wine, where elderly women in traditional headscarves carrying heavy loads of vegetables and herding donkeys nod hello to skiiers in the latest gear on their way back into town for apres ski.

Bulgaria is one of the cheapest destinations in Europe, but that that could all be set to change. In preparation for the currency the 'lev' being ditched for the euro (which is tentatively planned for 2012), general prices have started to rise, but not enough to prevent you securing a bargain break. A good cost-effective option is a private villa or apartment. And don't forget that Bulgaria has plenty of budget options for those intended to hit the ski slopes, with Bansko being a great cheap ski destination - and that's before you've sampled the budget priced après ski. Simply put, visit Bulgaria now before it enters the eurozone.
