“We had such a wonderful week skiing in Bansko in January.. Toms penthouse apartment was perfect! Very comfortable and only 5 minutes to gondola by shuttle bus which left right outside the apartment, could not have been easier. Tom was a fantastic host who gave us so much information and amazing tips which we were so grateful for. Would really recommend Toms apartment and we would love to return. The skiing in Bansko was fantastic for January and there was such a great atmosphere all around. Really really great value for money too!! Thank you Tom, we left Bansko with treasured family memories Claire and Steve.”
Tom's reviewsAs a host (3)
“We had a wonderful stay at Tom's apartment in Bansko. The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a family stay. Tom was very helpful in arranging all of our ski hire and lessons, and gave some good insider tips about the best places to eat and drink. The apartment manager was there to greet us and on hand when needed. Thank you Tom for all your help with our trip and sharing your wonderful apartment with us.”
“What can we say this adventure was amazing for my family of four two adults a d two kids from the very first communication we had with Tom to our drivers drop off in Sofia . This trip was fabulous everything worked out perfectly. Toms place is so cosy and clean exactly what you want after a full day on the slopes. Once you mention the Ophrey Hotel all taxi drivers know your location. Very easy to get around and old town gives you a great insight into Bulgarian culture eat in the mehanas they are so reasonable and delicious. Our first experience of Bansko we have to say was fantastic everything we could have hoped for and more our kids did not want to leave the slopes . Tom is a super host 5stars. We will be back and that is a promise. We love Bankso.”
Where is it?
The town, which dates back over 800 years, boasts numerous bars and restaurants lining your route to and from the ski slopes offering fantastic food after a day on the slopes and facilitating your après ski en route home. The local and European cuisine is delicious and very reasonably priced with a fantastic collection of good quality wines and beers. Dominated by The Sveta Toitsa (Holy Trinity) Church built in 1835, the town still has a local population which provide the charm and atmosphere of 'old Bulgaria'. You will pass many taverns (called "Mehanas"), which offer typical Bulgarian cuisine and a good selection of Bulgarian wines as well as traditional live music and folklore programs.
BELL TOWER 1 is only a 5 minute walk from the main Bansko Town Square where all major concerts and ski presentations are held. There are also numerous cafes and restaurants surrounding the square. There are 3 large 4 star Hotels nearby. Next door is the Orphey Hotel http:// orphey.com/eng/index.html while the Gardenia http://www.parkhotelgardenia.com/?lng=en and the Pirin Hotels http://www.hotelpirin.com are only a 4 minute walk from BT1 and would offer the best in swimming and leisure facilities. Small fee payable at reception. The Gardenia is excellent for bar food and drinks if you are feeling peckish when you arrive back home from Apres Ski. The Pirin would have the largest swimming pool. Orphey, Gardenia and the Pirin welcome non residents.
A minibus leaves from the Orphey Hotel every 30 minutes to the Gondola Station (5 minutes) and returns from Gondola Station every day from around 4pm every half hour. Small fee applies from Reception.
