Set in a quiet spot outside the resort centre, the Zara has all your ski holiday essentials sewn up. Follow a session on the slopes with drinks in the bar and a friendly game of pool. Or try the spa for a leisurely swim and some time in the sauna instead. And families aren’t forgotten either, with hotel-run childcare for kids under 6 years included too.
When it comes to décor, there’s a simple but stylish vibe from tip to toe, with cream-coloured walls, dark wood and plenty of soft lighting to keep things warm and inviting. Head upstairs, and it’s the same story in the bedrooms, which each come with either a balcony or terrace.
All rooms are non-smoking and have a TV with English channels, hairdryer, fridge, telephone, bathrobes, safe and tea and coffee making facilities.

A rapidly expanding town, Bansko is 160km south of Bulgaria's capital, Sofia. Set at an altitude of 935m, it is dominated by Vihren, the highest mountain (2,915m) in the spectacular Pirin range, close to the Macedonian border.
The town lacks shopping facilities (there are no supermarkets at all,) but toiletries and confectionery can be bought in the larger hotels. Three museums record Bansko's place in Bulgaria's history and the 500-year old church is a prominent feature.
The ski pistes are located in two main ski - centres- CHALIN VALOG (1100-1600m) and SHILIGARNIKA (1700-2500m). They are approximately 10 kilometers above the town on the northern slopes of Pirin, and are easily accessible for approx. 25 minutes on the new Gondola lift which starts from Bansko. The region's pisted area is small, but there is an estimated 750km of skiable terrain if you venture off-piste which can be reached by lift, snowmobile or M18 Russian helicopter.
