This week we take a look at Borovets, Bulgaria’s most popular ski resort, although Bansko, its noisy neighbour, is gaining all the time!
Set in the Rila Mountains, Borovets was originally developed for Bulgarian royalty to use almost exclusively, but thankfully these days everyone can visit and enjoy this wonderful ski resort with its soaring mountain peaks, excellent skiing and a lively apres ski scene.
Located in the Rila Mountains in south west Bulgaria, the resort itself is 1320 metres above sea level (rising to 2560 metres at its highest point), has 58kms of ski runs, 5kms of advanced or black runs and the rest are for

When we decided to add a new summer destination we had to think very carefully. We didn’t want to offer somewhere that millions of people visit every year. We wanted to offer somewhere new and different and as soon as we looked at Northern Cyprus our mind was made up, this beautiful part of this Mediterranean island has over 30 unspoilt sandy beaches lapped by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, towns and cities crammed full of ancient history and of course those hot summers where the sun shines 340 days a year!
Cyprus is split into two separate countries, the southern part is Greek and Northern Cyprus is the Turkish

As the true specialist tour operator to Bulgaria, we are the first to say that whatever your budget we have a holiday for you. With that in mind let’s have a look at the luxury end of things in Bulgaria and ask the question, what luxury holidays does Bulgaria offer?
Well, we sent a crack team to check out a selection of luxury hotels along the Black Sea coast…(it’s a difficult job, but hey, someone has to do it!). This is what they came back with…
First, let’s define luxury. Of course one person’s idea of luxury isn’t the same as someone else’s, but generally we would say a luxury hotel

This week we thought we would take a look a look at skiing in Slovenia. It really is a beautiful setting for a skiing and boarding holiday. There are several resorts offering beautiful views of the Julian Alps, of serene lakes and even hilltop castles, real fairytale stuff!
We offer 3 resorts, Kranjska Gora, Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj. Here is an introduction for each one…
Kranjska Gora is a picture postcard ski resort located in North West Slovenia near the border with Austria and Italy.

Let’s talk Glorious Golden Sands!
A fabulous beach resort in the north of Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast.
Golden Sands is a wonderful beach resort located 25kms from Varna on the beautiful Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. Varna is Bulgaria’s ‘second’ city and Golden Sands is actually the second largest beach resort in Bulgaria, after Sunny Beach. As you would expect it has a long sandy beach, but hey, all beach resorts in Bulgaria have a long sandy beach! But what people like about Golden Sands is the nice relaxed atmosphere. You can wander along the promenade that stretches from one end of the beach to the other,

We all look for something different from our holidays, some of us like to relax by the pool or on the beach, some like to explore the local area, or perhaps a bit of both. Whatever you like to do Bulgaria can accommodate you, that’s the beauty of this wonderful country. Your accommodation is also very important and this is where Bulgaria scores highly as there is such a wide choice, more of that later!The largest resort in Bulgaria is Sunny Beach. It is a big resort with so much to do, so how about starting the day with a trip to the beautiful sandy beach? Here you can hire a parasol and a sun lounger or you can find a space where you

If your partner is really good looking then it’s not really news when someone says to you ‘your partner is really good looking’ it’s not really news to you but hey, it makes you feel nice all the same! And that’s how we feel about the Ski Resorts in Bulgaria being named as one of Europe’s cheapest ski resorts, we know it, most skiers know it, but we like people to recognise it all the same!
We say all this because Eurochange, the holiday money people at most airports, have named Borovets as Europe’s cheapest ski resort. They compared the cost of things like a lift pass, accommodation, ski
