"Excellent spacious apartment, brilliant location"
Apartment was fabulous and very spacious and Anoosh who owns the apartment couldn't have been more helpful. The location was brilliant, close to the slopes but in a nice quiet location. Would definitely stay here again, fantastic.
Thank you Anoosh

"Great location, lovely apartment - and that friendly touch!"
Borovets is a lovely town, with great facilities both on and off piste. The area is clean and I felt completely safe at all times (some reviews will mention ladies of the night etc, but we had no such issues!). the Locals are friendly, and food etc is cheap, especially if you go to local restaraunts, rather than piste bars. Although a lot of the snow had melted, there was still plenty of choice, with many runs still open, and generally good snow. Ski hire is reasonable, and the ski schools seemed excellent (even tho we didnt need them!). If you are considering a summer holiday, then there are plenty of other activities, such as mountain biking, walking, etc, and some lovely scenery.
The apartment complex is modern and well presented, with adequate secure parking. It has all of the facilities you would expect from a european 4 or even 5 star hotel/complex, without the price tag.
the apartments themselves are immaculately clean and well maintained, with every amenity you could ask for, and more besides.
the location is superb, being a 5 min walk to either the gondola (top slopes), or bottom skiing areas.
The main thing that sets this above anywhere else we have stayed, is the personal touch.
Anoosh was very helpful, and nothing was too much bother, even recommending restaraunts, places to walk, things to see, as well as questions about Bulgarian culture, money, etc.
the family who own these apartments, really care about them, and care about the service they offer, rather than just making money, and this shines through, from the attention to detail, good maintenance and excellent facilities in the apartments to the personal touches and service when you are staying.

"Spacious and comfortable apartment with excellent service from owner."
The apartment is very comfortable, spacious, warm and light and we had everything we needed. Flora is in a central location and we had lots of places to choose from to eat out at night. The owner was very helpful with all our questions and organised our transfer from the airport and ski packs at Borovets. Everything went according to plan. It was an excellent holiday.

"Excellent, spacious, comfortable apartment. Great location"
We were very happy with this apartment, it met all of our needs. It was near to everything which made it very convenient. It was cosy and warm at all times which was wonderful when coming off the slopes. We made use of the pool at the basement of the apartments (small cost) and ate in the restaurant one evening. Best of all, was the organisation of our transfers, lift passes and ski equipment by the owner Anoosh. Everything went smoothly which is a great relief when you book an independent holiday. I couldn't fault this apartment and would highly recommend it. We are very likely to go back to Borovets next year and we would definately stay in this apartment again as I don't feel the need to look anywhere else.
