Rila Mountain Lodge is situated in the rural mountain village of Govedartsi, known as the Gateway to the Rila National Park.(featured by Michael Palin) The main ski resort of BOROVETS with beautiful scenic ski runs, bars, restaurants and nightclubs is just 20 minutes way - you will be driven there each day. Govedartsi has its own ski slope as does Malyovitsa, which are within the National Park. Plenty of opportunity for having fun in the snow! The mountain walks , along well marked paths, are peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. For lovers of mountain biking its a must! After all that adventuring there are some wonderful spa's with indoor and outdoor pools- all fed by warm mineral water. The pace of life in the village will charm and relax you, and time spent in local cafes will afford you the opportunity to watch the world go by as it has done for centuries! In the nearby town of Samokov the bars and restaurants are less expensive than Borovets, with plenty of choice. There are also many individual shops and market stalls offering the opportunity to 'buy something a little bit different' at prices that will astound you!

Other Activities: Wake boarding, jet ski,mountain biking, hiking

About: Charlie and I have been together for 11years now and we are still working on several projects! Love adventure - Charlie is a huge sailing fan, has his own racing boat and sometimes, when the weather is good (calm no big waves) I will join him on a trip to France. Personally I prefer to ski, and made him learn just a couple of years ago. Now I can laugh at his antics! We love Bulgaria it is such an unexplored place and such big spaces with few people in it. Great place for families to learn to ski and the house is big enough for everyone to have a good time together or just sit and quietly read. Come and join us!

Why Bansko:
Its good for big groups and families. Away from the commercialisation of the ski resorts and great for getting to know the local way of life.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
You can see the mountains from every room (except some loos!) The rooms are spacious, we are child friendly, we feed you well, we have our own bar stocked with inexpensive drinks, games to be played, books to read, movies to watch. What more can you want...oh yes we are not too pricey.
