Never visited Bansko in the winter before so didn't know what to expect but had a great trip. Bright sunshine all week so no fresh snow but the slopes were in good nick and enjoyable riding. The guys at the chalet really looked after us - fresh home-cooked, local produce, plenty of hot water and welcoming wood fires. It's a few km out of Bansko in beautiful countryside so a quieter place to stay, rural and calm, ideal for summer retreats too. The team handle all transport so no worries there. Recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chalet Levente comfortably sleeps 10 guests with 4 en-suite bedrooms. Delicious evening meals are served in the traditional dining room, and the log fire in our cosy lounge will always be lit to welcome you home from the mountain. In addition to free airport transfers we also offer a free 24/7 minibus service, meaning that getting to and from the piste every day is no hassle. Just give us a call using the mobile we provide and we will be there to collect you. The same applies for an evening on the town. To make things even better, wine and beer is unlimited during meal times, and you can always count on there being a bottle of the famous local Rakia for the more adventurous types. What's more, children under 2 go free and those under 15 can enjoy a 25% discount on the adult price. Our comfortable and private chalet is located in the historic village of Banya, which is just 5 minutes from the big resort of Bansko. This ideal location means whether you want to experience some of Bansko's legendary night life, prefer a quieter evening in next to our log fire, or want to unwind bathing in a natural, geothermal pool looking out for shooting stars, you have come to the right place. We run Chalet Levente as an Eco-chalet, which means that everything you eat is home cooked and responsibly sourced. We buy from local producers at the market each week, collect wild herbs for chai, make our own home-made jams, pickles and chutneys. This allows us to provide an exciting 3 course evening meals which are complementary to your stay. We locally source all of our produce and use fresh, seasonal, organic ingredients where we can. We really believe that a great meal can only come from great produce. A hearty, comprehensive breakfast is served every morning, with our homemade freshly baked bread, a daily hot option, all the porridge you can eat and all the usual things you would expect, to set you up for another day on the mountain. ... more less
