Going out Dining is low cost high quality, with restaurants for every taste, from high-end international cuisine to local taverns, the “Mehanas”, for a taste of the local atmosphere. Some of them offer live folk music. Cafes and bars are also abundant. There is no time limit in the work hours of clubs and discos. Usually they close in the early morning. For those venturing outside the town limits, the outstanding natural beauty of the pristine landscape will reward them. Not surprisingly the area of the Pirin south of Bansko Sites of historical importance and especially of the Bulgarian folklore tradition are to be found everywhere.
I would definitely recommend this holiday. The Hotel is top class & the Pirin mountain offers great snow & a good variety of runs. It’s also great fun being with a varied age group of people especially if you are booking as an individual. You will not feel out of place. Everyone is friendly and helpful and good company. It was also excellent value for money. – Louise Valvona
