Overview

Other apartments available in same complex.

LOCATION
The Knights Lodge apartment complex is in a prime location only 400m from the main gondola station and only 200m from the start of the old town. It is in a quiet residential area but right between the gondola and the old town (restaurants, bars etc).

Please note: Cheaper properties may be some distance away from the gondola and the old town and/or exaggerate distances. Ours is genuinely as stated (please see our reviews). There is no need to have to wait for or rely on shuttle buses - it is only a short walk to and from all the facilities.

KNIGHTS LODGE
This is a luxury one bedroom apartment with high quality furniture. The apartment is on the third floor and there is a lift. It has a double balcony and lovely views out over the mountains. The mountains surrounding Bansko are a National Park and a listed Unesco world heritage site.

The Knights Lodge complex has 55 apartments with a 24 hr reception/security. It has its own bar and restaurant on the ground floor - the Irish Bar which is very popular locally for its live music and excellent pizza. Great if you cant walk too far after a hard day on the slopes!

BANSKO
Bansko is the best ski and snowboard resort in Eastern Europe - according to the Financial Times who said It combines modern skiing facilities with the charm of a 10th century town and has preserved its history well. Bulgaria is becoming increasingly popular among Britons keen to go skiing but not wanting to pay Zermatt prices. (Jul 06)

SKIING
Over 130 million euros has been spent since 2003 on new mountain facilities including the new Austrian made gondola lift which takes skiers up to the mid mountain area of 1725m. A network of smaller lifts takes you to the highest point of 2560m giving a huge vertical dro p of 1570m the run back to the valley is 17km long. The final 7km is floodlit and covered by snow cannon. Bansko has an electronic hands free lift pass system and Bulgarias first terrain park with half-pipe for snowboarders.

Bansko has a long winter season which usually runs from late December to late April. Skiers of all abilities are well catered for as Bansko has over 70 kilometres of marked ski runs which are easily accessed by the gondola lift - situated just an 8 minute walk from Knights Lodge. For full details of the skiing and ski hire/lessons. The facilities in Bansko will impress any skier who appreciates modern lifts, the latest in ski and snowboard equipment as well as low prices, especially when compared to the Alps.

SUMMER
During the summer Bansko is a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Pirin mountains on foot, bike and horseback, with white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding and mountain biking available. The town has more than 100 architectural and historical monuments of culture. Also in summer the town hosts a week long jazz festival, a Bulgarian folk festival and other cultural events.There are numerous warm mineral water springs with proven healing properties in nearby villages. The climate is Mediterranean (summer temps 25 degs+) with the Greek border only half an hour away.

GOLF
A new Ian Woosnam designed golf course has been constructed just outside Bansko (4kms) and offers quality facilities at a fraction of prices elsewhere in Europe.

"The area was lovely and quiet but ideally located right between the gondola and the old town. Cheaper properties are a long way from the facilities - beware! The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and really feels like home. We will certainly go again."Mr & Mrs Y, Colchester
"A great place for good value skiing - and so cheap to eat out. The live duo in the Sir Galahad sounded more like Dire Straits than the real thing! The apartment - really nice, with everything you need."Justin & Jacky, Hockley

We booked this property as it looked very nice and the location appeared good, only 400m to the ski gondola and only 200m to the old town of Bansko. When we arrived this was confirmed. It has a great location and is very nicely furnished. The owner was very helpful and anything we were unsure of or needed help with he was very willing and able to assist. All in all a great apartment to rent, whatever your reason for visiting the lovely town of Bansko. Rob & Nicola
We rented the apartment whilst viewing properties to buy ourselves and were very impressed with the build quality at Knights Lodge and also the location - genuinely close to the gondola and the old town. We are now looking at buying there ourselves.
