This package holiday to Hotel Ela in Borovets, Bulgaria departs Tuesday 20th December 2016, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Ski on deep, fresh powder at the top of the Mount Musala before making your way back to the charming village, meandering through pine forests, and you’ll understand why Borovets keeps bringing people back.

Do you dream of skiing down the same mountains where Bulgarian Kings of old once hunted? Oh, right. Just us then. Well how about a ski holiday at a snip of the price you’d pay in France or Switzerland, with exhilarating views, booming après ski and large doses of sunshine? That’s more like it. Here in Borovets you’ll experience a resort steeped in tradition and culture, and of course the fantastic skiing opportunities you’d expect to find at Bulgaria’s 1st ski region. In the charming village centre yo...
Young skiers will love Borokids Park, where the magic carpet, carousel can help them get to grips with the snow. The message to beginners from the lovely people at Borovets’ Chili Peppers bar is ‘more beer = less fear!’ however we’d highly advise against skiing under the influence, and instead suggest lessons with one of the local ski schools like Hunters and Yanakiev and the Sitnyakovo Royal Residence Ski Way’s wide, gentle slope for some cruisey confidence building. Each of the 3 ski areas offer int...
In spite of Bansko’s up and coming popularity, Borovets remains the party capital of Bulgarian ski resorts, with vibrant nightlife guaranteed as soon as you’re off the slopes. The ever friendly bar hosts at places like Bobby’s and Samokov offer unbelievably cheap local beer, and once the Bulgarian Rakia shots start flowing, you’ll understand why people are back in Borovets year after year. However, in spite of the après ski festivities, Borovets is far from just another ‘lads holiday’ ski destination. I...

"Good value"

Rob, Wiltshire
3/ out of 5
I had a very good week away and the holiday was good value for money. I wasn’t expecting a lot from the hotel, but the rooms were fine and clean, and the bar area was fine. The food – put it this way – wasn’t gourmet… I tended to eat a decent lunch in resort, then have soup and salad in the evening. This worked fine as there are plenty of places to eat in Borovets and I didn’t pay a lot for the hotel anyway. The location is good as you’re literally a couple of minutes’ walk from the gondola. With regards to who I’d recommend the hotel to – it’s probably better suited to a group of lads, it’s not a great family hotel or for people who are expecting luxury or higher quality food.
