Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Bankso, Bulgaria your home away from home

Bankso is Bulgaria’s most popular ski resort. Located at the bottom of the Pirin National Park between three separate mountain ranges, Bankso is known for having very reliable snow cover and a great range of activities to try. Bankso is a delightful mountain town, which was famous as a tourist destination before the creation of Bulgaria’s newest and most luxurious ski resort, due to the town’s importance as a folklore and traditional gastronomic centre. Winter or summer, taking holiday accommodation in Bankso is a marvellous way to indulge in Bulgarian culture and reinvigorate your senses.

Things to do on holiday in Bankso, Bulgaria

Bankso is a newly built resort, and as a result, boasts some magnificent facilities for every level of skier, snowboarder and snow sports enthusiast. Both beginners and seasoned experts will find plenty of entertainment from a holiday rental in Bankso, and the pistes are beautifully maintained with artificial snow in the rare event that natural snow cover is poor. Situated on the slopes below Bulgaria’s two most famous ski areas, Chalin Valog and Shiligarnika, expert skiers are particularly well catered for, and the facilities in the resort are good enough for Bankso to apply to host the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

During the short summer (May until October), the self catering Bankso apartments and holiday houses are the ideal base for walkers to explore the glorious treasures of the Pirin National Park, including the lakes, caves and historical finds. The natural mineral water springs which erupt from the slopes surrounding Bankso make it the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes too.

Bankso is also known as having the best après-ski in Bulgaria too, meaning that the day doesn’t finish as the lifts close! There are a range of excellent restaurants and bars to unwind in, and if you do not feel like returning to your Bankso accommodation straight after your evening meal, there are some great little clubs to enjoy too.

Very comfortable for a couple, lots of space and light. Complex has much needed facilities after a day on the slopes-sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool. Prompt and helpful communication from owner. Thank you for a great holiday!
