Mountain bikes can be hired in order to explore this beautiful region. Local companies can organise trips in the mountains e.g. white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding. For après ski the traditional Bansko tavern ('Mehana'), with their exceptional charm and style offer local atmosphere with their cuisine and good selection of Bulgarian wines. Most of the local 'Mehanas' even offer live folk music. A visit or two to these is a must! Discos and night clubs work without time limit, and usually close early in the morning.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

I must let you know what a fantastic summer break I had in your chalet 41. I cannot describe how wonderful the views were. The hotel was excellent value, unlimited buffet for only £8 and the spa prices were less than half UK price! I enjoyed the Zagorka lager at less than £1 per pint. Chalet and hotel facilities were excellent quality at amazing prices.

SKI/BOARDING TRIP

  • 4 of 5
A group of five us decided last minute to go to Bulgaria skiing and boarding for a week at the beginning of March 2013.
The connection from Sofia was a couple of hours by private minibus, and we arrived at the resort in time for dinner. The chalet is simple and stylish, the rooms well appointed with a lovely spacious lounge with log fire (we didn't actually use it as it was warm enough). The kitchen has cooking facilities and a table to have dinner.
The hotel (you have access to all the spa facilities and swimming pool for free by dint of staying in the chalet) is lovely with views of Bansko and the slopes. The spa facilities themselves are lovely, clean and not too busy. They even have table-tennis, and bowling in the basement, both of which we used (and tennis which we didn't).
I would definitely recommend the chalet as it is excellent value for money and the spa is ideal after a long day of skiing or boarding. Bansko is big enough in terms of variety of slopes for a week (although there is very little off piste), and I think they are expanding.

REGULAR USER

John & Kim I should have reviewed your property years ago. Sorry.

I have stayed regularly at your chalet over the past three years both with and without my children. Being a resident in Bulgaria for over four years now, I can honestly say that Katerino is without a doubt the best managed resort I have stayed at anywhere in the country. The location is fantastic, facilities superb and of course the chalet itself is clean, well laid out and comfortable for a family of four.

I will definitely be returning soon.

Cheers

Scott

BRILLIANT HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
I had a great holiday staying at your chalet. I was surprised at how large it was and there was plenty of space for our group, it was well equipped and spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed the log fire! The chalets private garden would be great for sunbathing.
The hotel and spa was excellent and all staff were very helpful.
Bansko is a great town to visit, with a mix of old and new. We just could not believe how cheap everything was. We got the free hotel bus to the slopes which was very convenient and it was a relief that the slopes were not too crowded for a good weekends skiing & snowboarding. We hired all our equipment from the hotel which was substantially cheaper than anywhere else. Some of our group had lessons which was good value.
Thanks for being so helpful John & Kim. I will be skiing & renting with you next year, and hope to try your chalet in the summer to explore the Pirin National Park.
All the best
