Spent a very comfortable week in this chalet. Very clean, good facilities and good maid service. Very near the main gondola but note it is a further walk uphill to the learning slopes. Some basic cooking equipment and hob if you wish to self cater but also near bars which serve good food. Linked to Hunters ski hire and airport transfer which the owner helped us arrange. Overall very pleased with the stay for the price we paid and would happily stay again.

Gorgeous chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd skiing trip to Borovets for a long weekend and we decided to stay in a chalet rather than an apartment and we were not disappointed. The chalet was clean, warm and comfortable with the added benefit of a sauna. It is located just off the main street that runs through Borovets near a supermarket and a good choice of restaurants (we loved the Happy Duck, great food and staff were brilliant). It is a 5-10 min walk up to the slopes. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again when we return next year.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5
We found Chalet Rachel to be exactly as it was described. There was five of us who stayed and there was plently of room for us all. It was clean and warm and the chalet was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided if needed.

This chalet is ideally located, only a short stroll to the ski lifts, shops and restaurants. Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, we particuliary liked the Golden Nugget Restaurant and Bobbys' Bar.

We went with Hunters ski hire and Balkan PM for our airport transfers. Both come recommended from the owner of Chalet Rachel who was very informative with all our queries.

We hope to return to Borovets and will no doubt book to stay in Chalet Rachel. We would have no problem highly recommending it.

A cozy chalet among the pine trees

  • 4 of 5
Hi,
I want to share my opinion about Rchel’s chalet in the ski resort Borovets.
My family together with our friends’ family was there recently for three days – 4 adults and 4 children. There was enough space for all of us, as two of the children were very young and shared rooms with the adults. We’ve spent our New Year eve in this cozy small house. There were enough kitchen facilities to prepare our diner (keep in mind there is no oven only stove). We’ve had a marvelous evening as well as the rest of the time. It was snowing all the time and the snow around us made us feel as in a fairy tale. The adults had an unforgettable peaceful rest, while the children were skiing and playing the games which were left in the house by the owner.
The well kept ski slopes, pine trees, the mountain and the fresh winter air made us feel like in Switzerland. The wooden house was part of our winter miracle. It was clean (the cleaning lady visited us every day), warm and had all the necessary facilities in order to make us feel home.

Schönes Häuschen in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5
Es ist ein einfache Haus in einer ruhigen Lage Borovets zu finden, jedoch nicht ist man in wenigen Minuten "Ortszentrum". Im Haus gibt es alles was man braucht, so wie es beschrieben wurde. Es ist einfach, aber für einen erholsamen Urlaub ausreichend. Wir verbrachten unseren Wanderurlaub dort. Im Ort gibt es genug Lebensmittelgeschäft und auch Gaststätten, wenn man mal nicht kochen möchte.
Beide Lift sind schnell zu erreichen und von dort kann man seine Touren starten, so wie wir es auch gemacht haben.
Es gab genug Handtücher (ein kleines und ein großes) und auch genug Platz.
Vor dem Haus ist genug Platz um Ball zu spielen.

Für Leute mit einfachen Ansprüchen ist es sehr empfehlenswert.
