Luxury ski chalet providing ideal accommodation for either family holidays or for groups of friends on a budget. Cheap skiing and excellent ski tuition in Bulgaria.
The best place to stay is our 119m2 ski chalet with 2 double size bedrooms and 2 shower rooms surrounded by forest and lots of snow. It is a very popular location with the children who think they have come to Narnia. Have a winter sport holiday or a Multi-Activity holiday in summer. Or relax in our rural retreat with outings to places of scenic or cultural interest. Summer weather is usually reliably sunny and 18-22C.
The benefit of staying in a chalet includes a separate room for the kids and a living space for you to chill out in the evening. You also have a kitchen area and all the comforts of home but with an onsite restaurant and bar.
There is nothing worse than taking the kids on holiday and being stuck in a hotel room while they are sleeping/lights out early/having to be quiet...
Small chalets are a good option with parents able to chill out by the cosy, romantic wood burning fire with the kids asleep upstairs and in a separate bedroom, but still close enough to hear.
There is a ski shuttle service at minimal cost to get to the slopes.
Interski Pamporovo are our preferred provider for all your skiing needs - tuition and equipment - and give a 100% best price guarantee.
The Ride Spot can provide all your snowboarding needs. These are both at Ski Centre 2 Hotel Marcony.
Ski School Steve at Studenets at the Middle Ski Station is our nearest school and best place for hire of any equipment.
Visit our Hansel and Gretel place. Not a Gingerbread House but a secluded ski chalet village in the middle of a wood. In summer combine visiting this fairy tale place with a week on the Greek Aegean - we are within 100km of Kavala or the island of Thassos is a lovely island.
For those wanting to see more of Bulgaria, consider taking a week in Pamporovo and a week on the Black Sea coast. If you would like a 2 centre holiday with a week on the Black Sea at Bourgas (Sunny Beach) Sozopol or Sinemorets, the last section of the A1 Motorway has now been completed and so as a consequence, you can get across to the coast in about 3.5 hours.
