The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
The town of Bansko is located at 925 metres above sea level, and its skiing area is 2000-2500 metres above sea level.
Bansko is the all new Bulgarian ski resort, recently discovered by the foreign skiers and tourists, but well known in Bulgaria. Bansko provides a superb combination of the virgin nature of the Pirin mountain with state of the art ski lifts and a well planned ski area, whilst still retaining the atmosphere of the ancient Bulgarian small town.

Bansko's nightlife is excellent with several bars, nightclubs and restaurants. The traditional taverns 'Mehana' offer great local cuisine and folk music. Nightlife goes onto the early hours of the morning.
The town itself also attracts visitors to its numerous cultural monuments, its museums and exhibions. The Holy Trinity church with its 30 m high bell tower and clock, splendid murals and woodcarvings can be found in the centre of town.
In the summer Bansko is host to a traditional Summer Jazz Festival,the Bulgarian Folk Festival and many other cultural events. The town also provides a great base for white water rafting, horse riding, walking, biking and a soon to be opened golf course designed by Ian Woosnam.

"Alpine quality at a fraction of the cost!"
We recently spent 5 days at the Pirin Mountain Residence and had an amazing holiday. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, very well presented and can easily cater for 6 adults without feeling over crowded. It has great views across town and over the mountains where all the action takes place. Location wise the apartment couldnt be in a better spot just a couple of minutes walk from the gondola station and a short walk from all of the best bars and restuarants. We were a mixed group of skiers and snowboarders and all found the quality of the slopes and the infrastructure (lift system etc) to be on a par with anything that we have experienced in the alps, this was of course helped by some of the best snow conditions that any of us have ever seen. I have been going on sking holidays accross Europe for 10 years plus and would strongly reccomend Bansko as a resort and this apartment in particular.

"Top class apartment, in great location with good views both of village and mountains"
Excellent location for the comfortable apartment few hundred metres from the gondola, local amenities (supermarket, bars, restaurants) in attractive setting.
Great base to return to after a day skiing. Warm, with baths and showers. The balcony looking up the mountain reminds you of the fun day out, even if the muscles are sore!

"Winslow Appts- Modern, Comfortable and a Great Location."
The Appt is very modern and comfortable. 2 very good sized bedrooms, one ensuite, and a relaxing lounge/ kitchen that has the option to sleep a further 2 if neccesary. 2 balconies, both over looking the slopes are great to hang out during the evening. Proximity to the cable car and the town are the real boon. Literally, just a couple of minutes waddle to the lift and the same to all the local amenities. Once you are in Bulgaria it is pretty cheap and there are stacks of options for eating out. Bottom line, is that if you want a reasonably priced ski holiday in a good location then this is the appt for you.
