About the Owner

We live in York, England and have 3 children - Oliver aged 11, Amelia aged 15 and Will aged 20. We love skiing and after visiting Bansko a few years ago we decided that it was such a lovely family ski resort that we would like to buy an apartment there. We usually manage to ski in Bansko at least once a season as it's such a safe, friendly experience without the hassle and excessive cost associated with other European resorts. We also love to visit Bankso in the summer when we go mountain biking and make use of the lovely outdoor pool.

This is one of the best apartments I have stayed in for skiing in Bansko. Located very close to the Gondola and with a ski hire shop just below. From leaving the apartment it takes 10 minutes to collect our boots and skis and arrive at the Gondola. So nice not having to drive and park. Natasha from Barrow was very helpful, showed us around and helped us park the car in the car park. Supermarket and small shop just a few minutes walk. Will stay again.

Spacious accommodation close to the gondola

  • 4 of 5

Good contact with the owner prior to departure and then with agent in resort. Spacious property suitable for family of 4. Perfect location close to gondola and good bars/restaurants. Plenty of hot water for showers and the property is very warm without the need for much heating. Access to the pool, sauna etc was a good addition. Twin beds in the bedroom made into a double. Could do with some fitted sheets as the flat sheets tended to come away from mattress. (the only adverse observation). Overall a good stay and would use again/recommend.

Bright, clean and spacious.

  • 4 of 5

Great location as just 2 min walk to lift. Very helpful booking-in staff who are able to resolve any issue quickly.

Clean and good sized apartment (we were 2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 10). Plenty of facilities in kitchen to cook, but we found this unnecessary as so many places close by to eat cheaply.

Swimming pool in fitness suite (1 min walk) was great for kids to have a splash and the sauna was a welcome sight for the adults at the end of the day!

Highly recommended.

From the Owner

We chose to buy a property in Bansko after visiting the resort a few years ago and falling in love with it. We soon realised that this resort was moving very fast into becoming one of the best ski resorts in Europe. It offered value for money whilst providing excellent brand new modern lift facilities and well designed and managed pistes. The Bulgarians are investing heavily year after year in making Bansko an excellent family ski resort. We also loved the contrast between the modern ski area and the very quaint old town of Bansko with its cobbled streets and churches, you really feel like you are stepping back in time when you take the short walk to the town square.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Mountain biking is becoming ever more popular year on year thanks to a dedicated group of MTB Expats who are carefully mapping and grading trails and downhill runs throughout the region and local area.

Good quality full suspension bikes can easily be hired, contact us for information on costs etc. The owner, Roger, and son Will tried some of the marked downhill routes on hired full suspension MTB in 2014 - best downhill ever ridden!

Will is part of the Newcastle University Cycle Club.


Looking on a map, our apartment is a very long way from a beach but it does have a lovely heated indoor pool and a heated outdoor pool for summer use.

When we use the apartment in Summer, we usually take a few days out and drive down to Kavala in Greece for a few days by the sea. Its only a 2.5 hour drive.


The main airport servicing Bansko is at Sofia International, a 2 hour transfer from Bansko. Flights are available from the UK with the following Airlines:

Easyjet - Gatwick, Stansted & Manchester,

Wizz Air from Luton,

BA from Heathrowe & Glasgow,

FlyBe from East Midlands,

Bulgaria Air from Heathrowe.


Sofia Airport is 95 miles.

Plovdiv Airport is 80 miles.

Thessaloniki Airport is 120 miles.

2 hour transfers from the airports can be arranged with English speaking drivers or you can pick up a hire car and drive to Bansko. It's a pretty straight forward drive and Sat Navs are now available for Bulgaria to assist.

Further Details:

You will be met on arrival buy our English speaking representative who will show you to your apartment and answer any questions you may have. The apartment is a 10 minute walk down into Bansko Old Town where you will find plenty of traditional Bulgarian Mehanas where you can eat and drink with the locals. The best and liveliest apres ski bar is the Happy End bar near the gondola station which has live music on weekend nights. The Pirin mountains have a range of mountain bike trails that are being developed for summer use.

From the Owner

The Bansko Royal Towers was our first choice of apartments to buy primarily due to its great location to the ski slopes. You can practically ski door to door. With all the other facilities that the complex offers we feel it makes for a fantastic holiday. We also enjoy the short walk into the old town of Bansko and eating at one of the many Mehanas, prices in Bansko are very reasonable and we feel there is no better value holiday in any other of Europe's ski resorts. Every year there are more and more quality bars and restaurants set up and the majority are within a 5 minute walk of the apartment.
