Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Knights Lodge is in a prime location only 400m from the main gondola station and only 200m from the start of the old town (please see our map in the photo gallery). It is in a quiet residential area but right between the gondola and the old town (restaurants, bars etc).
Please note: Cheaper properties may be some distance away from the gondola and the old town and/or exaggerate distances. Ours is genuinely as stated. There is no need to have to wait for or rely on shuttle buses - it is only a short walk to and from all the facilities.
This is a luxury one bedroom apartment with quality furnishings. The apartment is on the third floor (see photo below) and there is a lift. It has a double balcony and lovely views out over the mountains.
The Knights Lodge complex has 55 apartments with a 24 hr reception/security. It has it's own bar and restaurant on the ground floor - the Irish Bar which is very popular locally for its live music and excellent pizza. Great if you can't walk too far after a hard day on the slopes!

The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
Bansko is the best ski and snowboard resort in Eastern Europe - according to the Financial Times who said It combines modern skiing facilities with the charm of a 10th century town and has preserved its history well. Bulgaria is becoming increasingly popular among Britons keen to go skiing but not wanting to pay Zermatt prices.” (Jul 06)
Over 130 million euros has been spent since 2003 on new mountain facilities including the new Austrian made gondola lift which takes skiers up to the mid mountain area of 1725m. A network of smaller lifts takes you to the highest point of 2560m giving a huge vertical drop of 1570m; the run back to the valley is 17km long. The final 7km is floodlit and covered by snow cannon.
Bansko has an electronic hands free lift pass system and Bulgarias first terrain park with half-pipe for snowboarders.
Bansko has a long winter season which usually runs from late December to early April. Skiers of all abilities are well catered for as Bansko has over 70 kilometres of marked ski runs which are easily accessed by the gondola lift - situated just an 8 minute walk from Knights Lodge. For full details of the skiing and ski hire/lessons please see http://www.banskoski.com/index.xhtml.en.
The facilities in Bansko will impress any skier who appreciates modern lifts, the latest in ski and snowboard equipment as well as low prices, especially when compared to the Alps.
During the summer Bansko is a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Pirin mountains on foot, bike and horseback, with white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding and mountain biking available. The town has more than 100 architectural and historical monuments of culture. Also in summer the town hosts a week long jazz festival, a Bulgarian folk festival and other cultural events.There are numerous warm mineral water springs with proven healing properties in nearby villages. The climate is Mediterranean (summer temps 25 degs+) with the Greek border only half an hour away.
A new Ian Woosnam designed golf course has been built just outside Bansko (4kms) and offers quality facilities at a fraction of prices elsewhere in Europe.
Bansko is a unique combination of a modern ski resort and an old town with cobbled streets and pretty old buildings. Apres ski is centred around local 'Mehanas' - friendly taverna style restaurants serving traditional Bulgarian cuisine and drinks, often with roaring log fires and live entertainment.
Knights Lodge is located in the up-market Gramadeto district, just a 5 minute walk from the old town where there are around 100 mehanas.
For those who wish to party there are plenty of options such as the Happy End Disco Bar and the Nightclub Amnesia.
All the 5 star hotels in the town are located in the Gramadeto district – their fabulous spa and pool facilities are available to non residents at very reasonable rates.
Eating out is very cheap as well with an evening meal for two with wine costing only £15-£20.

"A Nice and Pleasant Place to Stay"
This was the 4th time to stay in this complex. I liked the apartment. The rooms were large enough, kitchen was well-equipped, bathroom looked ok, the staff was nice and everything was clean. The gondola lift is close enough although it is a bit hard to get to it using the ski shoes if the road is icy. There are plenty of shops and supermarkets nearby and the area is quiet.

"Great apartment in a superb location"
Apartment was rented by 4 lads for a one week ski holiday. Apartment is in a great location (near to all the shops, bars etc) and a VERY short walk to the main gondola to access the slopes.
Apartment itself is modern, clean & tidy.
Furthermore the communication from the owner, John, is superb. That itself is very reassuring considering this was my first trip to Bansko. And I've just re-booked again!
if you're looking to stay in Bansko, I'd definitely stay here. I can't fault it.

"Great location, great apartment, great property manager and great value for money!!"
This was my first time in Bansko and I wasn't really sure where to stay. I knew I didn't want a hotel as an apartment is more comfortable for a 7 day stay...
I took up this place on a recommendation from a Bulgarian friend and it is absolutely fantastic so I sure plan on being back there myself again.
It is close to the main ski lift, it is like right in the town center, the place is great... and when the snow is great too (like it was when i stayed) it pure enjoyment :-))
And finally also worth mentioning that the property manager and owner are very kind and helpful.
