About Michael

Originally from New Zealand my wife and I now live in Yorkshire with our 3 children. We both work and love to relax in our Bulgarian ski apartment, where you can find friendly service, good food and affordable skiing!

Michael purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Michael chose Bansko

The apartment "Paprat kŭshta" (Fern house in Bulgarian) is just across the river Galzne from the main streets of Bansko where you will find ample restaurants and shops to browse during your stay. Gondola and ski hire are 5 min walk away so you can either store your gear at the apartment or the hire shop. Skiing in Bansko is friendly and very affordable with excellent child to adult ski schools available. Bansko is about 1 1/2 hr drive from Sophia by taxis or hire car. At the apartment you can also enjoy the indoor heated pool, gym and games room. English TV.

Clean, central with everything needed for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this 1 bedroom apartment (sleeps 7) for our first family skiing trip and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation.

The cost was extremely reasonable for an apartment located just a short 5 min stroll from the main gondola station and the town centre.

The apartment was equipped with fresh clean bed linen and plenty of towels, and the kitchen had all the appliances and utensils you need to cook from home (we didn't as ate out every night).

The pool, sauna and steam room were an added bonus after a hard days skiing, and I'm sure the gym/games room would appeal to families too, my boys didn't make use of these as they collapsed in front of the TV each night too tired to do anything else.

The free shuttle service to the gondola each morning and evening was extra service we used occasionally.

The owner in the UK was always quick to respond to any questions I had, as were the management company in Bulgaria who are very friendly.

I would highly recommend this apartment to any family looking for a convenient base in Bansko.
