Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the neighbours were noisy - its not usually a problem as the chalets are pretty sound proof (I don't think I've ever heard them, but there's always a first!). Always worth speaking to the people who manage the chalets to have a word if it ever is bad. Glad you like the chalet though, and thanks for the review.

Great time in the chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time. Loved being private and all together

Oh and for the ladies there is a great hairdryer down stairs in the bedroom.

So close to all restaurants . Also at the Samakov is great for target shooting. Swimming . Great gym and wonderful massage . Everything is so cheap. Everything you need is in the chalet. Even a coffee plunger

We loved our time and will defiantly book again.

Wonderful Chalet

  • 4 of 5

You cant go wrong with this Chalet. Daily maid service, Lovely and warm, Very clean and lots of space a joy to come back to after a days skiing. Set in the trees with lots of snow looks just like the pictures on the web site. Had a Fantastic time and really did enjoy the chalet, much better than staying in a Hotel.

Spent a very comfortable week in this chalet. Very clean, good facilities and good maid service. Very near the main gondola but note it is a further walk uphill to the learning slopes. Some basic cooking equipment and hob if you wish to self cater but also near bars which serve good food. Linked to Hunters ski hire and airport transfer which the owner helped us arrange. Overall very pleased with the stay for the price we paid and would happily stay again.

The sauna is a great bonus and the cleanliness and maid service was excellent.. From the booking to the end of stay I was kept well informed by the owner. All in all a great place to stay, highly recommended!!

Gorgeous chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd skiing trip to Borovets for a long weekend and we decided to stay in a chalet rather than an apartment and we were not disappointed. The chalet was clean, warm and comfortable with the added benefit of a sauna. It is located just off the main street that runs through Borovets near a supermarket and a good choice of restaurants (we loved the Happy Duck, great food and staff were brilliant). It is a 5-10 min walk up to the slopes. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again when we return next year.
