Treat Yourself and rent this Chalet

  • 5 out of 5
We were a party of 8 peopletaking the whole chalet. 4 children and 4 adults.Kids ranging in age from 3 to 12.We stayed at the chalet from 28th Dec 09 to 4th Jan 10 and were there for the skiing.

FIrstly i do not usually leave reviews for any trips or hotels that i stay at.But i felt on this occasion i had to leave a review as Nick and his family deserves a very big thank you for all there efforts to make our stay an enjoyable one.This was no small task as we had booked this as a New Year treat and was our first Family ski trip and guess what NO SNOW!First time in 20 years Nick informed us.

The Chalet is exactly as described and to be perfectly honest better than described.Nick looks after you from the minute you get off the plane when he picks you up to the minute he dropped you off for your flight home.I did read all the reviews which were already posted and thought that they couldn't be all true but they were.It is as good as all the posts say it is.

Nik organized everything ski's, lessons ,where to eat on a night and everything inbetween.

A normal day for us was Breakfast made by his lovely wife mariana,off to the slopes for limited skiing due to the lack of snow,Nick would then help us with passes our ski's etc and when we were ready would set about giving all in the party who want help lessons then lunch and a drinks break before more skiing and more lessons for all from Nick, when we were aching and tired back to the Chalet for an Apres coffee and cake and after a rest and relax and a couple of beers from the honest bar it was a off to a restaurant in samakov for a fantastic (and cheap) meal,then a lift back to the chalet.

Due to the lack of snow this first ski holiday could have been a disaster.However due to nick and his families hospitality it was a great holiday enjoyed by all.We'll be back next year for more of the same and this time hopefully with some snow.

The chalet was also kept immaculatly clean.

I cannot reccomend this chalet enough.As i said at the top treat yourself and rent this chalet.

Great chalet with outstanding service

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of families with children and this was our second group trip to Nick's chalet and yet again we were not disappointed.
Nick and his family cannot do too much for you and nothing is ever a problem. They arrange transport to and from the airport, provide skiing equipment and tuition, drive you the 10 minute trip to and from the slopes, can provide packed lunches for a small charge and will book restaurants as required. Boots, skis and helmets are all available from the chalet basement so there's no need to go searching elsewhere and lug all the equipment around. Nick was a fantastic instructor for our both our children and any more advanced skiers. He is also able to arrange extra instructors if your group needs it. Snow was patchy in a some places by mid-April this year, but it was fine the previous two years and a couple of feet is forecast later this week.
I would rate Four Seasons Chalet very highly as the service is fantastic.

Fantastic place!!

  • 5 out of 5
We are a group of 13 people and this was our second stay in Nick's chalet. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything lived up to our expectations. There is no need to say how amazing Nick and his family are. You shouldn't worry about snow conditions because there is always artificial snow and Nick's family will try to do everything to make your stay unforgettable. We will all definitely come back to the chalet.

Amazing Easter holiday!!

  • 5 out of 5
I'd never thought that skiing in April will be so good. You might not believe it but snow conditions were great for this time of the year. There are other advantages of skiing in April - there is a discount of the list passes and there are fewer queues on the lifts. There is no need to say anything about the chalet itself. Everything said in the reviews is completely true. Nick and his family will do anything to make your stay perfect. If you are thinking whether to book or not, don’t! Just do it!!

5 Star Standard. All reviews are genuine.

  • 5 out of 5
All reviews are genuine. The stay is really this good.

Your 5 star hospitality has made my first ski holiday a memorable delight and we will be sure to come again and recommend this stay for years to come.

A holiday experience in which the host bends over backwards to provide you with the best vacation possible. The chalet is kept immaculately clean. REAL coffee and a tasty breakfast is served to you daily (plus a handy packed lunch if you choose). Nick is a patient, friendly and skill full ski instructor. The bar is continually stocked. The beds and duvets are incredibly comfy and the chalet kept perfectly toasty.

Really couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Nick & family. You deserve the best review I can give.

Fine chalet and lovely hosts ensure great holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
The reason we initially selected The Four Seasons chalet for our first skiiing holiday was that it was one of the few places that could accommodate fourteen people at a reasonable price. However, we committed to choosing it because it only had fantastic, five-star reviews on this site which demonstrated a genuine warmth for the the host, his family and the chalet itself. We booked, paid our deposit...and a year later flew out to Bulgaria.

We were not disappointed! From the moment we were met at Sofia airport by Nick's daughter, we were looked after. Nothing was too much trouble: we were greeted with an unexpected welcome drink and snacks; a friendly face fed us a hearty breakfast each day and the cheap honesty bar in the cosy lounge was kept well-stocked (it needed to be!). We were also advised on some excellent restaruants for the evening, or could order take-away meals if we preferred. If ever we had any queries, Nick was always available to answer them, but was never intrusive. This was invaluable for a large group visiting a country and doing activities most of us had very little knowledge of!

At a time to suit us each morning, we were driven to Borovets for skiing, snowboarding, sledging, walking, shopping or just relaxing by the slopes - there was pleanty for different group members to do each day. When skiing, we were treated with courtesy, patience, good humour and interesting conversation on the slopes, as Nick took it in turns to give each person specifc skiing advice to the individuals in the group. How he must have despaired at our slow progress, punctuated by probably far-too-frequent breaks! But he never showed it, nor made anyone feel inadequate. The degree of challenge was right for each person, without putting anyone at risk or in danger. This was all due to Nick's expert knowledge of the slopes, weather and his own skiing ability, of course.

Like everything else in Borovets, the lift passes, equipment hire, ski instruction and transfers were very good value. These items could be bought as needed, so suited both the novice and expert skiers/snowboarders amongst us. The flexiblility and choice was what made this holiday so easy to organise and enjoy. The range of rooms and facilities in the clean and attractive chalet meant that there was plenty of both space and privacy for a large group.

Would we go again? You bet! I'm just off to make the booking now...

Four Seasons Ski Chalet is just 10minutes away from main ski resort of BOROVETS in the Rila Mountains. Within walking distance of the centre of the town of Samokov.There are many restaurants, bars and nightclubs with prices well below those of Borovets. Samokov is a bustling town with both a daily market and larger weekly market where you can buy locally grown produce. Check out the small shops selling any number of interesting items at extremely good prices. The Rila Mountains, within the National Park, are a haven for wildlife, plants and fantastic walks. Rivers, fed by the mountain waters provide a magical place for barbecues and picnics. The famous Rila Monastery is well worth a visit. For those who love music, cafe society and designer shopping a visit to Sofia is a must. The journey down the winding mountain road will take you past Lake Iskar with its beautiful mountain backdrop which you can enjoy whilst sipping a local beer. Winter snow, summer sun and all at a small price!

Other Activities: Guided mountain walks. Wake boarding. Jet Ski-ing
