About Barrie Robinson

I live in England with my partner and 2 children. My partner and I both work, and we fell in love with the little village of Bansko in 2005, when we first went out there to take a look. We love Bankso because it has a great feel to it, the people are lovely, the food, restaurants and pubs are warm and inviting. You can enjoy skiing in the winter, and mountain biking/hiking in the summer. The property is a few minutes walk from the ski gondola and a supermarket to stock up the fridge. We can point you in the right direction for ski hire, mountain bike rides, trail walks, and even white water rafting. It is still a very affordable holiday for the whole family, for all ages.

Barrie Robinson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Barrie Robinson chose Bansko

We have been going to Bansko since 2005, and have looked into a few properties, but unfortunately had a few issues with some of the developers, and the place we originally purchased fell through. But, we kept going back to Bansko, as there is something there that draws you in, and you just can't resist the lovely old Village, its history, the traditional restaurants, and the beautiful Pirin Mountain range

What makes this apartment unique

The property is very convenient for skiing/hiking/walking/mountain bike trails, as well as close proximity to all the restaurants, bars and the well stocked supermarkets, for all your local needs, such as bread, milk etc. We have recently refurbished the flat, and now provide ski rack for skis and boots. We are only a 5 minute walk to the ski gondola and we welcome all families to stay there. We are very child friendly, and can provide cot beds/travel cots if required

Another Great Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to Bansko and staying in Mel & Barrie's apartment.

Everything went really smoothly and as always Mel, Barrie and Tosh (local contact) were really helpful.

The place has everything you need for a skiing holiday, and the welcome pack is a really nice touch.

I am sure this won't be our last visit!

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bansko for a late season ski break with the family.

Mel and Barrie were very easy to communicate with making the entire process stress-free. Our contact in Bansko itself was also easy to contact and quick to respond.

The accomodation had everything that we needed, is only a short walk to the gondola, was warm, clean and safe and there are easy walks to a multitude of eating places.

If you are looking for somewhere that you can be self-sufficient I would highly recommend this.

Good apartment

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed in the apartment, not as close to the gondala as we had expected (10 minutes walk). Appartment was very clean and spacious near the shops and bars. Water heater only contained enough water for two to shower. Tea towels would be a good idea. Enjoyed our stay, warm, quiet, and well equipped. thanks

Fabulous apartment perfectly situated!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from 4 nights at Barrie and Mel’s apartment in Bansko (3 friends on a cheeky ski weekend). The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and the beds were so comfortable! We arrived to a very lovely Welcome Pack which lasted us the whole of our stay. The apartment is situated at the end of the Main Street which was perfect as it was so quiet. Barrie and Mel were fabulous in helping us arrange transfers and also ski hire and lessons. Can highly recommend staying here - we will definitely be back.
