Avalon Hotel, Bansko, Bansko
Summary
One of Bulgaria's best-kept secrets, the historic town of Bansko is
situated in the Southwest of the country in the foothills of the
beautiful Mount Pirin. The mountain's twin peaks soar to over 2900 m
and its breathtaking alpine beauty combined with the area's history
has resulted in its adoption as a World Heritage site.

Description
Bansko's re-emergence as Bulgaria's newest international ski resort
owes much to its good snow record and excellent ski runs, catering for
skiers of all standards, from beginners to experts, in a season that
lasts from mid December to mid April. The many cultural monuments
and museums of the town add a historic ambience, which blends
perfectly with the facilities of a modern ski resort. The local ski school
is excellent and ski rentals and 24-hour emergency services are
readily available.

Apres ski in the taverns and restaurants of the Old Town offers a
unique opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine (all use local ingredients)
and culture. Live music, a disco and nightclubs are all part of the local
scene. Being a newly redeveloped resort prices are substantially lower
than in Bulgaria's more fashionable resorts of Borovets and
Pamporovo.
