                                  Lovely property very well located.

                                  4 of 5
                                  We stayed here over Christmas 2016,we had a wonderful time plenty of snow. The apartment was in a great location virtually on the main street with lovely views. Its modern and well equipped and was kept regularly cleaned. Spacious and comfortable for a Bulgarian built apartment. Its on the fourth floor with a lift right out side the apartment door.We would recommend both the apartment and the owner (who is based in Britain) and is very nice. A quick note the deposit on arrival is £200 or 400ish lev refundable straight away on departure no problem. We recommend you pay this in pounds as get it back in pounds as its costs you a fair bit to get any spare levs you don't use changed back into pounds.

                                  Cosy, spacious chalet with nearby bistro & pool.

                                  5 of 5
                                  The property was spotless, warmly and welcomingly decorated and really comfortable. The accommodation was perfect for our families; 2 young (kids age 5 - 11) families of 5 fitted in with ease. We really enjoyed going to the pool and bistro, and found the convenience of the shop a God send. The shuttle service to the resort worked well, and we absolutely loved Borovets. The ski package was excellent value with the quality of instruction such that the kids were all competent to excellent by the end of the week. The little ones got on well in the ski kindergarten too. Overall, just simply fantastic. We feel very lucky to have had such a wonderful holiday.

                                  Fab Family Ski Holiday

                                  5 of 5
                                  We were a party of 8, made up of two families with mixed skiing experience. Although there was a lack of snow which was unprecedented, the Bulgarians coped well with the help of snow cannons and we were able to ski every day. Gilly and Charlie were brilliant at making all of our arrangements with the ski school and transfers etc before our arrival. The only trade off was that we arrive with The Telegraph and its crossword puzzle ! We arrived at the Rila Mountain Lodge to a warm welcome from Gilly and Charlie and a welcoming bowl of soup and fresh bread. The lodge was warm, clean and cosy with plenty of bathrooms for everyone. There was a lounge and kitchen in each apartment but we preferred to gather downstairs in the bar/snug. Gilly and Charlie couldn't do enough for us and treated us like family. The food was delicious and plentiful. We sometimes felt we were letting Charlie down by not finishing his huge breakfasts! The children were especially fond of his chocolate pancakes. On returning from the slopes in the afternoon, it was lovely how Gilly and Charlie invited us to go for a walk with Tam and Tukka (the dogs). The company was great and we never felt the need to go out or leave the 'honesty' bar in the evening, It just felt like home! We can't recommend this lovely holiday home enough and am sure we will return again and again.
