Sitting at the base of the mighty Todorka peak in the Pirin Mountains, lies Bansko, Bulgaria's newest resort which is quickly becoming one of the country's most popular ski destinations. Given the rustic mountain charm, fantastic skiing on offer and lively après ski, it comes as no surprise that the resort is continuing to draw in and churn out happy skiers. And in case this wasn't enough, you'll pay a fraction of the price of a similar holiday in France or Switzerland. Don’t let the resort’s popularity pu...
Bansko has in recent years been home to the FIS Alpine World Cup, which can go some way in demonstrating the quality of the snow and the condition in which they are maintained. If it’s good enough for the pros, it’s certainly good enough for us! Beginners are well looked after here, whether this is your first time skiing or you’re a couple of ski sessions left from the reds. New skiers, especially the little ones, can make the most of the Pirin or Ulen ski schools, before venturing out onto the gentle blue...
A living and breathing town, Bansko is the liveliest of the Bulgarian resorts, so you can bank on great après ski here, whether it’s the great local cuisine and wine or something a bit different if you fancy a day off the slopes. Le retro will give you your own little piece of France, or if you want a taste of the Orient go to the Kempinski Hotel’s sushi bar and Teppanyaki grill; but for a true taste of traditional Bulgarian grub, head for one of the many ‘Mehanas’ in the village. A Mehana is the Balkan ...

"A great Bulgarian hotel"

Lily, Greater London
5/ out of 5
We had a great week. The hotel was really good, we’d spoken to some people who lived in Bulgaria and they’d said this was a very good quality hotel, they were right! We went into other hotels to have a look around and ours was definitely one of the best. We had a half board booking and the food was really good: it was buffet dinners, for example every night they had four kinds of salads with two or three meals of chicken, meat, fish… All of a very good standard. They created a special program for New Year with dancers which was great. It’s worth mentioning that Bansko has such a variety of places to eat out (cheap prices and good food) you could book B&B. Everything was well organised and we found all of the staff to be very helpful. The location was by a small bus that was about a 5 minute drive to the ski lift. On the way back there were a lot of people queuing for the ski lift (being New Year, the resort was busy) but you can easily get to the hotel by skiing slope 2 which is a green – a nice and easy 5-7km ski down. They only had wifi in the lounge area on the first floor but all the rest of our stay was really good.
