Bansko is a picturesque town located in the foothills of Pirin natural reserve. Its beauty and natural treasures – thousand years old forests, mountain lakes, mighty peaks, thermal springs, wild berries make of it a peace of paradise on earth. In summer it is sunny and quiet and it is a perfect place for a break from the city madness, connection with nature and self-discovery. Bansko provides all the tools to achieve a perfect balance of active and passive aspects of energy. We encourage our guests to maintain this balance by combining physical activity and relaxation practices. How about having a great workout for the body and soul in the mountains and then relax in a thermal pool, go to a music festival or have a massage by a professional physio?
The house combines the traditional alpine style exterior with original features such as a large open log fire, restored wooden flooring and exposed beams, creating a warm, homely ambiance – designed to inspire comfort and relaxation. Three rooms have private balconies with views across to the mountains, with a further balcony located off the lounge. To the rear of the chalet is a decked area with an outdoor hot tub and a large enclosed garden to practice yoga or just chill in the sun.
