Yay, so I returned to Bansko at the weekend! And wow what a fun couple of days we had as a big group!! I’m going to keep this one short and sweet, and share some fun pictures and great places to stay and eat!
There are so many different places to stay in Bansko… the last two times I have been, I’ve stayed in St Ivan Apartments and Spa. Out of the way from the lively town, the apartments are a great way to get some resting time away from the lovely buzz of the town. The apartments are modern, and have all the cooking facilities you would need. Not to mention, the heating is amazing, and turned on ready for your arrival – even if you get there at the dreaded time of 4am like us!
There is a shuttle bus which leaves for the slopes every hour or so (approx 3 min journey), and costs €4 each way if you require a personal journey out of skiing hours. The walk, although a little harder on the way home, is a beautiful 10/15 mins to the town. There are some areas which could do with a little tidy up, however, the back drop of snowy mountains is sure to make your eyes wander!
The staff are friendly and helpful, and the cost per night is around £35 for a double room. Bargain!
Restaurants and bars:
We spent most of our two nights I’m Euphoria (drinks and fun) and the Log Cabin for food (breakfast and dinner). Both have friendly staff and are very accommodating for large groups.
On our final night we ate at Zehtindjieva House, down a little side street off the main road through Bansko. The food was an absolute dream!!! The Salads and Meat dishes were some of the best I’ve tasted! We all had a fab time, and the staff were great. Highly recommend this place!
There’s not much to put here other than, AMAZING! We were so blessed with incredible amounts of snow – even if a tad on the foggy side. It’s great here for beginners and groups. We didn’t queue once! Not ever for a ski lift.
The resort has 18 slopes of varying difficulty. (Check out my last post on Bansko for slopes, hire, ski lift details).
Here’s some pics of the snow!
