Beautiful chalet with a mountain view! We have just returned from a week skiing in Bansko (2 families, 8 of us in total aged from 45 to 12 years) and found the chalet larger than the photos. Natasha has thought of everything from a wide range of books, latest movies and PlayStation. The chalet is very well equipped so if you do want to cook everything you need is available. We stopped at Lidl on the way to the chalet and wished we had purchased more food for dinner as the supermarkets near the ski run are minimal. Dinko the driver was great, charged us 50 lev per day into bansko (roughly £23 for a return trip for all 8 of us). We hired our equipment through Tsakiris (walking distance to gondola) and Yota and the team were fantastic, would definitely recommend. We got our passes through Johnny Bulgaria (he's on Facebook) and he made sure they were with Natasha when we arrived.
Tsakiris also do daily trips up the mountain so for 10 lev each you can avoid the gondola, we used this every day.
This was our second trip to Bansko, stayed in the centre last year, but although a 15 min drive this year, the extra space and hot tub better suited our needs! You just need to remember that you are in Eastern Europe and the town of Dobrinchte is a typical residential area with unused buildings but you just need to see past this! And, the local restaurant serves great food so you do have some where to eat within walking distance that is excellent and very authentic.
Natasha who owns the chalet is fantastic, always on hand with advice. My son was ill while we were away and she personally took us to a local doctor.
Big thank you to Natasha for making our holiday so enjoyable
Stayed at the Pirin Chalet with family and friends over the Christmas period . The Chalet was great and well equipped, coffee machine was a massive bonus, hot tub was great after a day on the slopes. The upside down design works well and makes the most of the views. The village of Drobrinishte didn’t have much to offer to be honest and the drive into Bansko to the gondola then back again to go out for the evening soon became tedious to say the least as it is a good 15-20 minute each way .
We had a mixed group of beginners, experienced and non skiers so driving back and forth 3-4 times a day , however we can only blame ourselves for not thinking more about the location . The poor quality pirate films ( had to have volume up to 100 to hear ) and lack of Christmas films did spoil it a little for us but on the whole was ok . Would go back to Bansko but stay more central.
We booked this place for a work Ski trip. Everything was better than we hoped. The location is beautiful - views from the veranda of the mountains are breathtaking. Hot Tub was a main attraction and didn't disappoint. The house itself was large, warm and very inviting after a long day on the slopes. Sitting around the large wood burning fire with a G&T is perfect. Will be booking again next year.
A real gem of a house in Dobrinishte, about ten minutes drive from Bansko.
We stayed eight people ages 14-45 for a skiing trip in the first week of February.
The house is newly decorated, had plenty of room for us, and the amenities were great. Excellent rooms, kitchen and bathrooms. Wi-fi is fast and stable.
Mrs. Bamford met us on the night of our arrival - which was rather late - and showed us around the house. We were set up with lift passes and ski-school and equipment in advance, and we got really good tips on where to go for dinner and the famous thermal baths.
It all made for a very pleasant and relaxing stay, and we won't hesitate to recommend this Chalet very highly.
We have just returned from a week staying in this beautiful chalet in the lovely town Dobrinishte, there were 5 adults and there was more than enough space.
The hot tub was a lovely addition even though we were there in minus 20 we still managed to get some use out of it, and the log burner was fantastic!
Natasha was incredibly helpful, from getting our ski passes to supplying a welcome basket which provided out breakfast the next day.
We will definitely be returning to Dobrinishte and will be using Bamro.
This chalet was great. Plenty of space, easy to find (signs lead you through the town), very new and comfy inside and Natasha has thought of everything. When we stayed the weather was -18 but the bird feeders outside were kept full so that in between using the hot tub, skiiing and eating at one of the great local mahahnas we could watch the local birds.
Food for breakfast the following day was provided in the form of eggs, juice and bread, as was a coffee machine full of beans. All one could ask for from a chalet, and Natasha was more than helpful for everything outside the chalet, helping our group to organise ski passes and hire.
Could not have asked for more.
The memory of our first family skiing holiday outside the UK in Bulgaria will stay with me always
My son Michael booked this holiday and he did well finding Natasha and her wonderful Pirin Chalet
The resort of Dobrinishte with its thermal mineral springs and daily ‘goat herding’ is great to enjoy the local life as well as being well located to the Bansko ski area
With our family of 9 of 7 adults including two infants aged 6 month and 3 years to five young adults to two 54 year old’s this holiday was marvellous for us all
We all enjoyed looking up at the stars in the Hot tub / Jacuzzi- our granddaughter asking when are we going back!
It was lovely to relax in the open plan living room with stunning mountain views
As grandparents we miss the balcony outdoor sitting area with the grandchildren
The wood burning fire for cosy evenings after busy days out skiing ,skating and swimming
The whole chalet is lovely , well stocked though one recommendation would be to add a mirror to the bedroom with the two single beds as one of my daughters loved the room but needed a mirror!
Natasha you are a lovely lady thank you for looking after us and please pass on our good wishes to the skiing school (M&G) who looked after us so well and fell in love with our grandson
