Probably the largest and best equipped apartment, in one of the few five star complexes in Bansko, this must be one of the best places to stay this year!
The most important consideration when you're looking for a ski chalet is how close it is to the ski lift, and Bansko Royal Towers is less than 150 meters from the main gondola station. No waiting for buses, struggling to carry your ski gear or walking miles in ski boots!
This apartment is stunning, with 2/3 bedrooms and two large bathrooms; at 145 sq/m it has a wonderful spacious feel and attention to detail that makes your stay an experience to remember. Better still, unlike the majority of apartments, if there are six of you staying, there is no need to use the living room as a bedroom, or sleep on a sofabed!
After a hard day skiing you can swim in the pool, relax in the jacuzzi or relieve those muscles in the sauna or steam room.
The main supermarket is next door, the restaurants and bars are accross the river, and Bansko Royal Towers even has a bank on the premises!

Why is this apartment so special? Firstly, developers in Bansko tend to put the same kitchens, bathrooms and furniture packs in all their apartments, so if you book through a large tour operator, all the apartments will be the same.

Set on the edge of the Pirin National Park, Bansko is the largest ski resort in Eastern Europe, and boasts the longest runs and the most modern lifts and facilities. It is also a beautiful place to visit in Summer, with its golf course, hiking trails, fishing, riding and spectacular scenery.
You can climb the peak of Vihren - at 2,914 metres the tallest of the Pirin mountain, or relax around the pool and soak up the sunshine.
There are plenty of excursions around Bansko, including Mineral Baths and the Bear Sanctury, so you'll have plenty to do whatever the time of year.
Bansko was built nearly 600 years ago, and until recently was predominantly a market town. In the centre of town is a pretty market square, punctured with fountains and statues with a very Russian feel to them, and locals sitting outside cafes sipping small dark coffee. Running south from this square to the Gondola, and the new part of Bansko is Pirin Street, which is full of restaurants, grocery stores and ski shops.
Outside of the ski season, there are a number of events which take place through the year, including the Bansko Jazz Festival and Pop Concerts. Nearby Banya is known for its 27 thermal mineral springs. In summer there are plenty of hikes available from a couple of hours to several days. If hiking tires you out, then journey by mountain train (the oldest in Bulgaria) to Velingrad for lunch, or visit the Bear Park, Rila Monastery or Yagodinska Cave. You can even take a day trip to the Greek beach resort of Kavala.
If you're feeling energetic, then hire a bicycle and take one of the many cycling trips, or play tennis, go horse riding or fishing. If this all seems rather tame, then try river rafting or rock climbing, then do an off road Safari by Jeep or Quad Bike.
