This package holiday to Hotel Lion in Bansko, Bulgaria departs Saturday 9th March 2024, 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 2024 was between €1 and €3 per person, per night.

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 blues, ...
A living and breathing town, Bansko is the liveliest of the Bulgarian resorts so you can bank on vibrant après ski here. Le retro will give you a little piece of France. If you want a taste of the Orient go to the Kempinski Hotel’s sushi bar and Teppanyaki grill; but for an authentic taste of traditional Bulgarian grub, head for one of the many ‘Mehanas’ in the village. A Mehana is a Balkan take on a ‘tavern’, easily spotted with their homely feel, lively violinists, and of course fantastic food, all 3 ...

"Impressed - great value"

Sarah, Hampshire
5/ out of 5
I was actually really impressed with the quality and standard of the hotel in general. For the money we paid, I can’t see what more they could have done for us. It was great value and the people who worked there were nice. The facilities like the pool and sauna were ideal after a day on the slopes. We were a group of 4 in 2 twin rooms which were both absolutely fine, ours had a chaise lounge, table and desk with plenty of space to keep my snowboard bag etc. The standard of food for a half board buffet was quite good – there was a decent selection, so if you weren’t keen one on dish (or had no idea what it was, which happened a couple of times!) there’d be something else to choose. Getting to the slopes was walkable and wasn’t bad at all in snowboard boots. A couple of our group were skiers so we tended to take the minibus which was very reliable and got you to the slopes in a couple of minutes.
