This package holiday to Hotel Lion in Bansko, Bulgaria departs Saturday 24th February 2018, 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.

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 ...

"We preferred our holiday to Flaine but the hotel was fine"

Michael Schofield, Nottingham
4/ out of 5
The hotel was fine. We had full board and the food was alright. It was buffet style, you could help yourself to as much as you wanted and there was enough variety to always find something to eat. There was plenty of it, although it wasn’t always warm. The New Years gala was lovely and they seated people of the same nationality together which worked well. The rooms were nice and they were comfortable. The lounge was OK. The internet access was a bit on and off – when too many people tried to access it in the evenings it stopped working. You also only got internet reception in the bar area. The hotel is well placed near the slopes and the staff are very friendly. We wouldn’t go back to Bulgaria because it’s not as snow sure as Flaine and other European resorts.
