Yes great place, not a great deal of snow. Back to Ausria I think
We had a brilliant time. Loved being private and all together
Oh and for the ladies there is a great hairdryer down stairs in the bedroom.
So close to all restaurants . Also at the Samakov is great for target shooting. Swimming . Great gym and wonderful massage . Everything is so cheap. Everything you need is in the chalet. Even a coffee plunger
We loved our time and will defiantly book again.
You cant go wrong with this Chalet. Daily maid service, Lovely and warm, Very clean and lots of space a joy to come back to after a days skiing. Set in the trees with lots of snow looks just like the pictures on the web site. Had a Fantastic time and really did enjoy the chalet, much better than staying in a Hotel.

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.
Chalet Rachel is in a convenient location to all the facilities in Borovets. The property has everything you need for your stay. The sauna is a great bonus and the cleanliness and maid service was excellent.. From the booking to the end of stay I was kept well informed by the owner. All in all a great place to stay, highly recommended!!
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.
Borovets lies at the foot of Mount Moussala (2925m) in the pine forests of the Rila Mountains, at an altitude of 1350m. It is only 70 km from Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria and 126 km from Plovdiv.
Golf: The Ihtiman Golf course is a 20 min drive away
Ski: Borovets ski area is situated in the Rila mountains at 1,300 - 2,560M. The chalet is a 4 min walk from the main Gondola. The season runs from mid December until April.
