About the property

Penthouse Ski Apartment in Bansko, Bulgaria - Quiet Location, 400 Metres From Ski-lift. Convenience store And Pavement Cafe Next Door

This good-as-new, fully-furnished 52 sq.m. penthouse apartment is 13 minutes walk from Bansko town centre. It has easy access to the Pirin Mountains (400 metres from the gondola lift for winter skiing and snowboarding and summer hiking) to Pirin Golf & Country Club (15 minutes away by cheap taxi) and to the numerous attractions of Bansko itself: 1000s of years of history, shopping, mehanas (taverna-type restaurants - some with live music), extensive street markets, bars and museums. There is a convenience store/pavement cafe next door. Nearby hotels offer other facilities to non-residents. Bansko International Jazz Festival takes place in August. Pirin National Park, its entrance only about 1.5 km from the apartment, is 274 and a World Heritage national park. Numerous lakes and the old pine woods make it a popular area for recreation. Bulgaria offers great value for money and Bansko is one of its highlights.

About Neil Roth

Neil is a Londoner who has travelled to over 70 countries around the world, including most of those in Europe, and has skied in Finland, France, Germany, Switzerland and the US as well as Bansko.

Why Neil Roth chose Bansko

I was so impressed with Bansko on my very first trip to Bulgaria that he immediately paid a deposit to buy this apartment off-plan: it has a sunny, south-facing aspect and wonderful views of the mountains. It is located in a quiet side street, only a short walk to the gondola lift base station and to Pirin Street, for shopping and restaurants. I come back here every year.

What makes this apartment unique

I love the wonderful views of Bansko and the surrounding mountains from the windows in the apartment and find its location very convenient for the numerous amenities Bansko offers

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another couple who spent a week in the apartment said simply:

"Thanks! We had a great time."

A third couple said

"We had a great time in Bansko and the apartment was ideally placed and very cosy, so thank you!!.....We'll hopefully be in touch for next year!!"

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment during the summer. The apartment had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped. The bed was nice and soft. There is a fantastic view out the window. The apartment is on the 5th floor and there is no elevator- so expect a workout. There are small markets nearby and several restaurants. During the summer, much of the town is deserted, many shops and restaurants are closed. The center of town is about a mile from the apartment. There is no public transportation in the town but there are cheap taxis, but we usually just walked through the charming streets to get to our favorite coffee shop and bar. There was a week long jazz festival and a three day opera festival which were held for free in the town square while we were there that livened up the sleepy town. The people are very friendly and many speak English.

Owner's Response: True there is no lift/elevator but the apartment is only three and a half floors above the entrance hall (not on the 5th floor as stated in the review). The apartments at one end of the building are half a floor above those at the other end, because of the sloping ground.
