Having released our prices in April we are getting booked up very quickly! Please get your group together early to avoid disappointment. Only 4 weeks left of 16 total in Chalet Isabella now.
The winter season in Bansko officially starts on 12th of December, announced the mayor of Bansko, Mr. Ikonomov.
With a surprising first dump of snow last week (half a meter!) the mountain looks all white and sparkling. Temperatures are low, so hopefully this snow would stay as a perfect base on all the slopes.
Everyone in resort is getting excited, ski slopes being prepared, snow cannons tested, hotels and chalets cleaned and painted, restaurants and bars opening, little cafes already buzzing with life.
WINTER IS COMING… and it looks like a promising season is ahead of us!
“Ride hard, party harder” – Horizon Festival is back to Bansko for the third time.
The festival takes place in Bansko, located at the foot of the stunning Pirin Mountain Range. Venues are located in town, as well as on the mountain.
The resort has top of the range skiing facilities – 8 chair lifts, 9 drag lifts, 8 man Gondola and 75km of pistes (80% of which are covered by snow cannons guaranteeing excellent skiing conditions).
The town itself has a unique friendly atmosphere – traditional taverns with live music and crazy Bulgarian dances, busy streets and cafes, buzzing night life – countless bars and clubs at reasonable prices (a pint of beer for £1,5), with friendly atmosphere.
We still have our Chalet Orbelus available for the festival week!
7th-14th March, B&B for £247 a person!
For bookings made before the end of October – get a group of 13 and you as the organizer go for FREE!
We can also book festival tickets for you in advance and advice on cheap flights to Sofia.

The mayor of Bansko was pleased to announce in an interview (for Focus news agency) that the summer season in Bansko has been very successful. The town has mainly been visited by Bulgarian, Greek, and Serbian tourists.
All over Europe, Bansko is famous for great skiing, but few people living west of the Balkan Peninsula have actually had the chance to appreciate its potential as a summer tourism destination. In recent years local hoteliers, National Park authorities, and Bansko Municipality have put a joint effort in attracting tourists to come and enjoy Bansko ’s charm and beauty in summer.
And there are so many reasons why!
The old quarters have kept the unique spirit and culture of this place with charming cobbled streets, and beautiful old houses behind thick stone walls and wooden gates (left from the 18th century, the times where bandits would attack rich people’s houses in search of gold and jewellery).
The town square is alive with numerous cultural events throughout the summer – Bansko Jazz Fest, attracting tens of thousands of people, the Opera Fest, many concerts and shows. Museums and exhibitions attract history and art lovers, the main street is buzzing with people shopping or relaxing in the little cafes in the sunshine.
Local taverns tempt the visitor’s senses with mouth watering views and smells of traditional Bulgarian specialties.
The area is a paradise for outdoor and adventure lovers. Pirin Mountain Range offers endless opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, and climbing. The natural beauty of the area attracts not only the keen mountaineer, but also families, rare plant and bird watchers, and picnic lovers.
The Gondola is open in the busy periods and gives people easy (and environmentally friendly) access to the mountain to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, the sounds of the birds, mountain streams and the odd bumble bee!
So we, as a part of the local community and local tourist businesses, have also had a very successful summer and could not be happier about how things are going!
Well done, Bansko!
