The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
Nestled between the Pirin, Rila & Rhodope mountain ranges, the ancient town of Bansko is located at the foot of the Pirin National Park - this unique environment is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural and National Heritage site. The beauty in this area can be enjoyed during all seasons and offers a variety of activities.
Winter: Skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing
Summer: Hiking,cycling, fishing, horse riding, sight seeing, white water rafting, golf
Pirin is noted for its rich flora and fauna. Much of the area is forested, with the best conifer woods in Bulgaria, holding important populations of the Balkan endemic species Macedonian Pine, Bosnian Pine and Bulgarian Fir. Animals include the Wolf and the Brown Bear.
The Bansko / Glazne area
Bansko is the newest and the most rapidly developing ski resort in Bulgaria. 40 million Euro has been invested creating state of the art ski lifts, electronic ski pass system, snow canons, and new gondola, whilst still retaining the atmosphere of the ancient Bulgarian small town. Fantastic, child friendly (English speaking) ski and Snowboard schools for all levels of ability. Bansko has the best snow record and the longest ski season (mid Dec - mid May) of all Bulgarian ski resorts. Snow cannons (there are 160) cover most of the slopes and make the ski season last even longer. The slopes offer runs and tracks for all types of skiers and will suit both beginners and experts.
There are 14 pistes totalling 65km, including a unique 16-kilometre uninterrupted skiing, starting from Todorka Peak at the highest point of the ski centre all the way to base station of the Gondola, a 7km floodlit run direct to Gondola, cross country and excellent off piste skiing. Top class snowboarding facilities including a funpark and halfpipe.
Bansko provides an interesting combination of natural beauty mixed with the unique atmosphere of an ancient Bulgarian town with old cobblestone streets and traditional taverns (Mehanas). Apres-ski is friendly, Bansko's nightlife is excellent with nightclub, bars and restaurants. The Mehanas offer great inexpensive local cuisine (grilled lamb, sausages and delicious shopska salad) and live folk music. There is even a casino, bowling alley and ice rink.
Bansko is a great place for families. The resort offers a ski and non-skiing kindergarten located by the bottom station of the Gondola lift. Children from 3-6 yrs. inc. are welcome at the club, where supervised activities are provided. For children 4-7 years, the package includes daily tuition (2 hours per day), skis, boots, lift pass (to the snow club only) and daily activities including outside snow fun!
Bansko is not only a great ski resort, but in the summer hosts one of Europe's largest International Summer Jazz Festivals, Bulgarian Folk Festival and many other cultural events. During the summer months Bansko is popular with visitors for white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding, mountain biking, horse riding, walking and trekking, mountain lake fishing, and shortly opening a golf course designed by Ian Woosnam. The nearby village of Banya, located only 5 km from the town, is known for its 27 thermal mineral springs.
South of Bansko is the Pirin National Park which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and hosts bears, wolves and many rare species.

I travelled alone with three children, and having nothing but good things to say. Ger so helpful in giving information, management services met us a property to give keys, caretaker was so helpful at giving us lifts to the gondola station, the apartment spotless clean, washing machine clean smelly ski boot socks. The town centre was really close with really good food at silly cheap prices, the property was very close to Bansko's biggest supermarket for those needs of fussy eaters. Having the bath was great to ease all their aches and pains.
Really glad you enjoyed the apartment and your holiday over Easter so much. We do try our best to ensure our guests have a hassle-free stay in a comfortable and well equipped apartment. Hopefully we see you again next year!

Glad the apartment was to your satisfaction and that you enjoyed your stay. As you say it is perfect for a small family as it is well equipped and in a quiet but central location. We've taken your comment on board about the bathroom and will be adding to it over the summer.
