World-class skiing without the high prices
It's the hidden costs of a skiing holiday that catch you out. But not in Bansko. The standard of equipment is no different to what you'd find in the Alps, with the same leading brands and high levels of equipment maintenance. With ski instruction and dining on the mountain as affordable as our apartments, SJI Ski Retreats can offer you the perfect venue for your next skiing or summer mountain holiday.
Exceptional quality, exceptional value
Bulgaria enjoys a very reasonable cost of living, coupled with a refreshingly unpretentious attitude to food and drink, service and prices. The food is top quality, freshly cooked and healthy. The excellent local wines are superb value, and the local taverns have great charm and character. Whatever your appetite after a day on the slopes, you'll have no trouble satisfying it in style.
