Guestbook comments from the manager

'What a superb summer location - setting amazing, plenty to do including horse riding, mountain biking, bar-b-ques and outdoor pool - what else could you want'

"We didn't realise there were ski resorts still offering such good value for money, so picturesque and a brilliant location".

"Stylist accommodation and fantastic setting and location. We didn't realise there was accommodation like this available in the ski resorts - will certainly be returning next year".

With the restaurant and facilities onsite, we had everything we needed and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this picturesque resort". Have already booked for next season.

Having our own 4x4 was certainly a bonus as we could explore the area as well as ski.

Superb in every aspect

  • 5 of 5

This year we decided to book our first family skiing holiday and having two young girls 7yrs and 5yrs we were naturally a bit nervous and anxious that everything was right for them. We chose Pamporova as reviews said it was a great resort for families and beginners. Once the resort was chosen we then set about finding accomodation. For us hotels are not an option so we looked for private rentals. From the very first enquiry I made, Diane the owner put me at ease and after a conversation with Diane I booked straight away. Diane then went on to help me organise transfers, car rental, and the whole ski hire package in literally a matter of days. Upon our arrival at Sofia we were met and taken to our accomodation which was warm, spacious and extremely cosy. There was somebody on site at all times to help with any queries we had and everybody from the site to the ski resort were fantastic. The resort itself is safe and relaxed and perfect for families. For value for money i dont think you could beat Pamporova.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first ski holiday and without doubt it was down to Diane form the very moment we booked, we even received a complete pack about the resort and recommendations of places to eat and visit. This is a superb resort with first class accomodation and we will definitely be returning next year!!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Plovdiv at 85 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : On site Nearest Ski : Studenets at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Winter. There are lots of additional activities such as snow tubing, ski-doos, horse riding, quad bikes etc. Tried and tested - absolutely fantastic driving through the snow covered pine forests. There's also a husky dog ride for the children at the slopes, sledge hire, climbing and walking locally. And well worth a visit our new Spa Centre, with thermal baths, treatment rooms, etc - take the opportunity to chill out after a day on the slopes

During the summer months its a holiday with a difference - as well as beautiful scenary you can take part in activities such as trekking with a guide, fishing and hunting, outdoor paintball, horse riding and alpine climbing. The ski slopes are converted to mountain bike tracks and you can hire cycles there.

You can also relax at the villa and make use of the outdoor pool and jacuzzi, with the beautiful surroundings of the pine forest around you.

Food and drink is very cheap as leva is still used in Bulgaria and not the euro.

Coast/Beach:

Pamporovo is an ideal summer destination. Fishing, horse riding, mountain biking, walking/hiking, quad biking, canoeing, hunting and bird watching. Places of interest include rock formations (the Miraculous bridges near the villa of Kosovo, the 'elephant' near Devin and 'the maiden' resembling a standing woman on the outskirts of Shiroka Luca. The Yagodinska Cave/Yagodina and the Buinova Gorge. The Trigad Gorge is the most impressive natural site in Bulgaria.

Travel:

Fly direct from most local airports to Plovdiv during the winter months – 85k from Pamporovo. Alternatively save money by flying direct from your local airport, Manchester or London to Sofia (220KM from resort). Book online at Easyjet.com, Bulgaria Air, British Airways. Flights from Luton to Sofia are fairly cheap with Wizz Air. Airline Network.Ryanair from Stansted to Plovdiv starting August 2010. We can collect/return you to the airport or provide directions if you prefer to drive yourself.

Distances:

Smolyan is the nearest village outside of Pamporovo, full of superb restaurants and many shops and is approx 20 minutes. Ancient Plovdiv (approx one hour drive) is contemporary to Troy and there are Roman ruins and Roman roads. The Roman Amphitheatre is still in use today. The lovely old town has been restored to its mid 19th century appearance. Plovdiv is definitely worth a visit. Ask at reception if you would like to book an excursion.

Further Details:

WINTER. The hot thermal baths (with snow all around you) are a welcome break mid week as an apres-ski activity. Apres-ski in Pamporovo is fun and inexpensive compared to other ski resorts. With BJs bar in the lobby of Hotel Perelik, Dak's Bar on the ground floor of Hotel Snejanka, Night Flight in the Hotel Rojen (new and largest disco in Pamporovo). Party at The Spider Night Club at the White Hart Pub in the centre of the resort. There's also the local folk restaurants that serve traditional local specialities with some extremely palatable Bulgarian wines. Pamporovo is for the future (as well as today): Recently plans have been put in place to link Pamporovo's Perelik peak with Smolyan and its lakes. There are also plans to link Pamprovo with Mechi Chai, the nearby ski resort at Chepelare. For those wanting to ski on longer red runs this will be a great bonus. Advanced skiiers and snowboarders can already ski/snowboard to Chepelare (wtih a guide/instructor). It is a short drive away. It is hoped this will transform the Rhodopi mountains into the biggest ski area in Bulgaria. We can also arrange winter fishing

For those wanting to see more of Bulgaria, why not consider a two centre summer holiday with a week at Pamporovo villas and a week on the Black Sea Coast. We can arrange your car hire.

SUMMER. We are not far from the Greek Aegean coast. A new road has been built through the mountains to Xanthi (via Zlatograd) which has reduced the journey time to just 90 minutes.

This is becoming a very popular summer destination and some of the new activities we can offer are caving, white water rafting, nature and wildlife tours, off road driving, bird watching, mountain biking and hiking (eco trails).

A new mountain bike park has just opened in Pamporovo. Mountain bikers will be able to cycle down some of the prepared ski runs. The runs also include a number of jumps and challenges. An approximate cost of a day pass to use the chair lifts is 20 levs per day.
