We work and live in the UK but try to spend as much time skiing in Bulgaria as our busy lives will allow.

My Husband and I both work in home furnishings and accessories and we wanted to create a luxury contemporary interior with all the mod cons and a high level of comfort to relax in at the end of the day. The views from the chalet are stunning and nothing beats relaxing on the balcony with a glass of something chilled in the summer or some warming mulled wine in the winter.

CHERYL HAWKER purchased this chalet in 2014

Why CHERYL HAWKER chose Samokov

Borovets is a great alpine ski resort and the peaceful location of the Chalet surrounded by pine forests with views of the Rila mountains and pistes is breathtaking. A short 3.5km drive into the centre of Borovets, and you will find a bustling lively town with great bars and restaurants, offering excellent skiing in the winter and mountain biking, hiking and horse riding in the summer.

What makes this chalet unique

The resorts Bistro is Borovets best kept secret and we have enjoyed some great meals next to the roaring log fire.

After a long days skiing our daughter loves playing in the pool while we "chill" in the hot tub!!

The owner Cheryl was great to deal with answered all our questions and was quick to respond ,the staff at the complex were extremely friendly and helpful (Yvonne even got us a turkey for Christmas Day and put in the chalet ready for us!)there is a Lidl in samakov which was great to stock up although there is a shop on the complex for essentials.the chalet was extremely well equipped and comfortable the layout was perfect for us as it was myself my husband 3 children and both sets of parents!A open fire with free logs was great on cold days to curl up with a hot chocolate in hand!fantastic position with beautiful views the free bus shuttle into town was great,safe drivers/vans!i don’t ski myself but the chalet is ideally located for skiers about a 10 minute journey into borovets with its many ski slopes,and sledging which my children loved!i wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will hopefully be back in the future 🙂

The chalet was lovely, spacious, and equipped with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is in a peaceful setting with amazing mountain views. Clean and tidy, with a homely feel. We stayed for a week in August and enjoyed exploring the local area - the owners had left a list of places to go/things to do, and Vesi on reception was also helpful. We'd stay here again

Cosy, spacious chalet with nearby bistro & pool.

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotless, warmly and welcomingly decorated and really comfortable. The accommodation was perfect for our families; 2 young (kids age 5 - 11) families of 5 fitted in with ease. We really enjoyed going to the pool and bistro, and found the convenience of the shop a God send. The shuttle service to the resort worked well, and we absolutely loved Borovets. The ski package was excellent value with the quality of instruction such that the kids were all competent to excellent by the end of the week. The little ones got on well in the ski kindergarten too. Overall, just simply fantastic. We feel very lucky to have had such a wonderful holiday.

Perfect place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is in a quiet and peaceful location, the surroundings are stunning with great views from the balconies.

The service from reception was very good, they organised free regular bus transfers to and from the town (10 mins away).

The reception/restaurant/shop/leisure centre is 30 second walk away from the chalet.

The complex swimming pool was warm and the hot tub and sauna was very welcoming after a day of skiing.

The chalet was spacious and very comfortable for our party (3 couples). We were all impressed with how warm the building was, great little heaters in each room and an amazing log fire (with plenty of free logs supplied). The bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe space and the beds were very comfortable.

The kitchen is well equipped, but we ate out every day (we recommend everyone to head into Borovets resort for some good food, good beer and good atmosphere).

The lounge was perfect to chill in, the ipod docking station and dvds provided were great for lazy afternoons in front of the fire.

We used the sledges provided (great fun on a good walk out around the forest).

The chalet overall is inviting, clean, modern and warm. We all enjoyed relaxing here and would not hesitate to come back again.

Borovets is fantastic, everyone was friendly and inviting. The skiing was great and can accommodate all abilities.
