Bulgaria’s ski apartments offer up some of the cheapest ski holidays out there. Eating out is so affordable over here that most who ‘self-cater’ rarely use their cooking facilities at all – choosing instead to try out the local restaurants. If you’d prefer to make your own meals, you’ll find kitchenettes with simple facilities like fridges and cookers. Sometimes it’s possible to upgrade your holiday to a half board package, which includes breakfasts and suppers in one of the nearby hotels.
Apartments connected to luxury hotels and spas make for a comfortable week away, combining the perks of having your own pad with pools, Jacuzzis and steam rooms just moments away. Bulgarian luxury is incredibly affordable, with 4 star properties costing what 2 and 3 star properties would in other countries.
Supermarket chains like Carrefour can be found in most of the resorts, though they tend to be quite small so it might be worth packing essentials like tea bags before you set off. If you’re hiring a car, it’s worth stopping off at one of the bigger supermarkets in the valley before you head up to the resort – there’ll be a lot more choice and prices will be lower too.
