The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region

Summer temperatures can reach mid 30s and cooler in mountains for walking.

The village, set at an altitude of 1936 metres, with views of mountains around every corner, is peaceful and full of charm.

The many shops sell souveniers, clothes, crafts and the antique shops have some very good war memorabalia.

Dont forget the coffee shops, or the village square, with its fountains and rug sellers., lots of places to relax and see the real Bansko.

Belista Bear Sanctuary is worth a visit, 33 kilometres from Bansko in the Rila mountain range, this was opened with the support of Briget Bardot and houses many dancing bears rescued from all over Europe. It is in many acres of woodland so is a perfect day out for all the family.

45 km will take you to the Rila Monastary. This is one of the most visited places in all of Bulgaria. It was

founded by the famous hermit, and Patron Saint of Bulgaria, St John of Rila.

The interesting wine village of Melnik is well worth a visit, the wine has been famous since 1300s !

For anyone wanting an energetic holiday Bansko is the place, whether in summer or winter.

Summer brings a list of holiday past times equalling and perhaps out shining many other holiday destinations.

Hiking, fishing, mountain climbing, mountain biking etc..

Archaeology, rare flowers, its own wine

Something for everyone and with plenty of charm.........

Bansko

During the winter Bansko is primarily a ski resort. The apartment is 5 minutes walk to the gondola.

The ski season, from December to mid May is one of the longest and best in Europe.

Bansko announced as the best value ski resort for UK winter sport lovers

Post Office Travel Money’s latest Family Ski Resort Report has pinpointed Bulgaria’s Bansko as the best value winter resort destination for UK travellers. Offering by far the lowest prices for ski-related and day to day living costs such as cups of coffee and meals out, UK skiers visiting this destination will be pleased to find that their foreign currency stretches further than in many other resorts.

The village caters for all ranges of skiers. There are lots of ski schools and ski rental shops. You can also hire everything at the gondola station.

The Ski Event Timetable

First off is the European Cup for Slalom on the 12th and 13th February 2012. Second is The World Cup Mens Slalom and Giant Slalom on the 18th and 19th February 2012. Thirdly we have the Womens World Cup Downhill and Giant Slalom on the 25th and 26th February 2012.

All ski sports fans will have the chance to cheer the man's slalom elite which will flock to Bansko for the FIS Alpine Ski Europe Cup. Both competitions will start at 10:30. Don’t miss the exciting races.

Watch out for other events....remember last year we had famous people including Lindsay Vonn! and most of these famous faces stay at the famous Strazhite Hotel right next door!

A bonus for the skier is the 7 kilometers long lighted ski - road between Banderishka polyana and the town. Some of the pistes offer wonderful conditions for night skiing, which is available for everyone from 18.30 until 21.30.

You can enjoy hot mulled wine and a nice meal in the apres ski which are up on the slopes.

Still nothing beats skiing straight down to the village and entering a warm menhana with a glowing fire and the smell of your meal beckoning!

There is an ice-rink and ten pin bowling within 3 minutes walk.

The medieval village of Bansko is packed with the Mehanas (restaurants) .If anyone could tell me how many there are, I would be very grateful! These eating houses are wonderful. With locally produced food at very reasonable prices.

Local meat dishes, served by costumed waiters costing around £5. Kebabs are a must as they arrive on skewers with flames! The restaurants offer children a choice of smaller adult meals as well as a menu of their own.

This is very often to the accompaniment of Bansko muscians who definitely play to their audience!

There are also many modern night clubs for the young at heart although these do not take away from the charm of the old village.

Bansko village is alive with traditional churches, architecture and shops. These range from clothes to souveneir and real bulgarian craft shops. There are over 110 monuments in the old town alone.

The village itself is a little peaceful haven, just a quiet walk down one of the many cobbled streets and your worries will be gone. Stop at a coffee bar, or outside a Mehana for a delicious dessert......... then on to the shops maybe for some bargains, from the many ski, outdoor clothes and craft shops, or from the market square where you can buy any thing, or mostly anything, and at great prices.

If you want a holiday which wont cost the earth then Bansko is for you.

The locals are friendly and helpful, Blagodarya ( thankyou ) goes a long way.

There is a steam room, sauna and gym in the building, these are free for people in the apartment.

The famous Strazhite hotel is just 2 minutes walk away. Use of the pool, gardens, steam etc is available for a minimal fee.

We can give details of local churches etc.
