"Our wintervacation in Borovets was just fantastic!"
Last week we returned home from our winterholidays in Borovets and I have to say that it was in one word fantastic!
We stayed in Borovets from the 29th of december 2012 till the 6th of january 2013 with the whole family and rented 3 apartments in the Flora Hotel
The grandchildren had ski classes every day and it was amazing to see how much they improved in only one week.
Although there could have been a little bit more snow also the big ones absolutely enjoyed skiing in Borovets.
We really enjoyed being together as a family and the location of the apartment so close to the ski pistes was just perfect, I could put the baby in bed in the morning and join the others for a nice lunch in one of the lovely restaurants, in the afternoon I brought the baby back to the apartment for another nap to join the others again for a coffee or cocktail later in the afternoon.
Snowdoves really takes good care of the apartments and the cleaning was just perfect.
The grandchildren already asked me if we can do it again next year and I can only agree with this idea, if all goes well we will certainly come back to Borovets next year and I already told some friends to go to Borovets for their winterholidays.
