The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
The complex is situated 1530m above sea level offering a wonderful view to the highest peaks of the Rhodope Mountain in southern Bulgaria - Perelik 2191m, Kuzuyatak 2100m, Snezhanka 1926m and Orpheus 1826m - and is surrounded by beautiful pine trees and meadows. The area benefits from a sunny year round climate - with no less than 270 sunny days per year; coupled with plentiful snow between mid-December and mid-April the area offers exceptional conditions for skiing.
A new 6-seater chair lift, the quickest in Bulgaria, has been opened in Stoykite (December 2008) giving access to all the pistes in Pamporovo, Europe's sunniest ski resort, including 2 new pistes (7km) linking Snezanka Tower to Stoykite itself and passing 100 metres from the apartment. As well as offering excellent skiing in winter, the area provides opportunities for walking, biking, fishing and pony trekking in the summer.
The charming country town of Smolyan is only 14km away and Bulgaria's historic second city, Plovdiv, - the Eternal town on Three Hills -with its enchanting old town, Roman amphitheatre and splendid restaurants is only an hour's drive away. On the way to Plovdiv lies the famous Bachkovo Monastery, founded in 1083 and dedicated to Our Lady. 6km away is the attractive heritage village of Shiroka Laka with its cobbled streets, traditional Rhodopean architecture and fine bar/restaurants. A new highway is being built that will give the area easy access to the Aegean coast - a 1 hour drive will get you to the sun-baked Greek beaches.
Pamporovo is an excellent place to learn to ski; the 20km of piste include an excellent long green run for beginners as well as good blue and red runs. A couple of black runs - including 'The Wall' will tax the most experienced skier. The resort has excellent ski schools, our 4 year old son received a 2 hour private lesson for about £20. Many good and inexpensive bars and restaurants are found on the slope itself offering both Rhodopean fare and less extravagant, but equally tasty, fast-food.
Planning has now been granted for the 'Perelik Project' a massive development to link the separate resorts of Pamporovo, Chepelare, Smolyan and Perelik into one major ski area. The new resort will have 55km of ski runs, 25 ski lifts and snow guns as well as recreation, sports and entertainment to encourage year round tourism. A new 6-seater chair ski lift (the biggest and fastest in Bulgaria) has now opened in Stoykite, linking you straight into the enlarged ski area.
Excursions are available to local geological wonders such as the Uhlovitsa cave, the Devil's Throat and the Wonderful Bridges. You can take a bike tour to Mechi Chal peak and the Observatory at Rojen. Walking tours with a local guide can be arranged to Snejanka peak and the Seven Lakes of Smolyan. The ski lifts run throughout the year for the more independent explorer. Access to swimming pools is available at many of the resort's hotels - including the new Perelik Palace right next door to the Panorama complex. Also, pamper yourself with an affordable massage at the Orlovetz hotel.
