Borovets is a ski resort town located high in the Rila Mountains of Bulgaria, and one of the oldest in the country too. The entire area is simply paradise for adrenaline and nature lovers, with its incredible snowboarding and skiing trails. In the summer you can also enjoy horse riding and mountain biking through the lush greenery and fishing for the local trout. There’s also the famous Musala Peak. Scaling this mountain is no small feat as it holds the record as the highest peak in all the Balkans. If you have the chance, leave the more touristy attractions behind and pay a visit to the traditional villages in the region. The small locally owned restaurants and cafes will also keep you well fed with hearty homemade stews and warming Bulgarian brandy. It’s no surprise that the number of repeat visitors to Borovets grows year by year! If you’re looking for a place to stay in Borovets, these are some fantastic Airbnb vacation rentals.
This bungalow is one of the larger properties in Borovets and comfortably accommodates up to 10 guests. Even in the coldest winters, the guest house is well insulated and comes with reliable under-floor heating to keep you snug and warm. It comes with four well maintained bedrooms with a combination of double and twin beds, as well as two living rooms featuring cozy fireplaces. Guests can also access the nearby wellness center for a relaxing soak after an exhilarating day out on the slopes.
