Have just returned from a fantastic stay over the New Year period. In total, there were 5 adults and 2 children, and I couldn't recommend Pirin Chalet - or its incredibly helpful owner, Natasha - highly enough. After a hard day on the slopes, it was the perfect place to come home to. Comfortable, spacious, and equipped with all mod-cons (decent Wi-Fi, SmartTV, bluetooth stereo, hot tub, well equipped kitchen...). The place is immaculate with breathtaking views and although it would have been difficult to find alone, Natasha met us at an easy rendezvous spot when we arrived to show us the best way to reach the property.
As for Bansko, although a bit of a journey from Sofia, it is well worth the trip, and the ideal place for a group of fairly inexperienced skiers to practice!

I stayed in Pirin Chalet between Christmas and into the New Year with my 2 children and some friends. We arrived around midnight, yet Natasha came to meet us at the entrance to the village to ensure we found the chalet. She gave us lots of useful info, made sure we were settled and had left a great welcome hamper. The chalet itself is amazing and suited our group down to the ground. We had sufficent space to chill in the evening after a day on the slopes and sit together for an evening meal. It is really well equipped too! Easy to reach the main ski center in Bansko yet with the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle. Natasha had thought of many small details that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable, such as leaving 2 local mobile phones with key contacts on, USBs with many films on and access to UK iPlayer and Netflix. Would 100% recommend and will almost certainly return!!

7 of us recently stayed at Pirin Chalet, the chalet was great, more equipped than we could ever imagine, Natasha (owner) was also so helpful & on hand at all times. The chalet was spacious & very clean. Would highly recommend & will already planning on coming back!
This snow skiing trip was my first time travelling to Bulgaria. The ski resort near the chalet - Bansko, was great. Bulgaria offers a fun, different and very cost effective skiing holiday.
Our host Natasha was absolutely fantastic - anything we needed from translations and bookings to general information was handled by her, and she was a huge asset to our trip.
The chalet is a 15 min taxi shuttle away from Bansko town center, about a 25 Lev journey. Most apres ski, restaurants, bars and nightlife festivities happen around the center, so this is something to keep in mind.
There was an amazing restaurant walking distance from the chalet in Dobrinski, which I would highly recommend as a "must do" in an authentic Bulgarian Mehana (Tavern).
The chalet is really well cared for and looks just like the pictures or better! Great hot tub, full kitchen appliances and equipment. Fully self catering.
Before we even arrived at the Chalet we had a small car accident, Natasha was down in minutes to help us sort this out with the Bulgarian police, this helped us a great deal. The house was amazing, the perfect place to chill out and relax in after an energetic day. The open feel of the lounge, kitchen and dining room was great for social purposes. The hot tub was a true blessing! The whole week was totally amazing; I would defiantly recommend a stay here.
