This is probably one of Bulgaria's best kept secrets so far, Great ionized healthy air, low cost skiing & in general a sensibly priced area to holiday: For skiing & snow boarding in the winter right on the doorstep or outdoor persuits in the Summer, welcome to 17 Pine Lodge, a superb luxury apartment high up in the Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria set in the pine forests: Pine Lodge is a small complex of apartments totaling 28 in all & is located on the south side of the Snejanka peak and is a 500m walk to the No4 ski lift, benefitting from little or no queue's, and takes you right to the summit from where all your skiing and refreshment needs can be satisfied. At the end of the day, just ski back to Pine lodge (subject to ski run being open & snow levels) - yes, right to the doorstep. .WHY NOT GO STRAIGHT TO OUR GUEST BOOK BELOW 17 Pine Lodge is a second floor modern apartment, fully furnished to a really comfortable level for relaxation after a day on the piste, fishing, walking, cycling, bird watching & much more all available in the area. It has it's own balcony with a view of the pine forests and a secure basemet ski locker. 17 Pine Lodge benefits from a superb local family run restaurant 100m away with some great traditional home cooked food & a great atmosphere where you can relax after a good day's skiing Only 6 kilometres away is the Town of Smolyan where all your shopping needs can be met at sensible prices. A similar distance away is the town of Pamporovo for all the more hectic night life if preferred. GUESTBOOK: 5th - 9th March 2013 Hi Peter, Just to let you know that we are now back home in the UK after having a delightful time in your lovely flat at Pine Lodge. Everything was just fine with the flat being clean and tidy, new bedding left for us and the heating on when we arrived. We found the flat was really well kitted out with everything we needed to hand. Ski hire available in the basement at sensible pricing really was handy. So, in summary, we had a lovely time and thought the flat was really fine. I will be sure to go on to Trip Advisor and give you a very well-deserved, glowing write-up. We were most impressed with the booklet you have put together for your flat and learned quite a few things about the place we were unaware of previously. Once again, many thanks for such good communications throughout the stay and I am sure that we will be in touch again the next time we go out to Bulgaria with John and Caroline. Kind regards, Roger and Elizabeth 8th - 29th Sept 2012 Hi Pete & Greta This is just to let you know we vacated 17 Pine Lodge this morning as we are taking in Batak and Bansko on route thru to Sofia in readiness for our flight on Saturday. All the instructions have been followed and we will post our 2 back to you when we arrive back in th UK. It was a pleasure staying at your apartment, we have taken the leaflet for your other one in Egypt, no leaflet for your home in Bedfordshire I see !! lol Regards Karen & Dave 26th Aug - 2nd Sept 2012 Hi Greta You're very welcome to use our comments. We had a great time at Pine Lodge and found your lovely apartment really comfortable and convenient. Good walks right on the doorstep and beautiful views in all directions. If we decide to re-visit the Rodope Mtns again we will certainly come back to 17 Pine Lodge. Best wishes Elaine May 2012 great ski apartment in the mountains The stay we had in Pinelodge was very relaxing, the apartment was very cosy and comfortable perfect place to come back to after a hard days walking/skiing. It was within walking distance of one of the chair lifts which took you to the top of the mountain/ski domain. Good skiing with a decent choice of pistes, and some fantastic views at the top. There is a restaurant next door and also one within the building with great food and friendly staff. Within driving distance of the nearest town for shopping a car is handy although taxis are super cheap so car not essential. All in all a great value stay in Bulgaria 22nd Aug 09 Dear Peter & Greta. Thanks for letting us stay at 17 Pine Lodge and for all the info & comfort etc you provided. All was well with the apartment, will email you with some pics. Cheers, Brenda & Paul Smith. 17th June 09 Back again for more of this beautiful unspoilt part of the world, undiscovered by so many. We visited Momchill Fortress this time & what some spectacular vies we had of Bulgaria from there. Looking at returning maybe over Christmas. Thank you Greta once again. Barbara & John. 12th June 09 To Pete & Greta Thank you so much for such a wonderful and relaxing stay at Pine Lodge. It was everything you had said and more.......fantastic scenery, people and beautiful apartment, so homely and modern too and so clean. Bulgaria is a country with vast diversity and Cos and i can't wait to re visit in the winter months to sample the snow and picturesque scenery and have a go at skiing. If anyone reads this, we would thoroughly recommend a few night caps just up the road at the local Mexaha where you will meet Sonia & Emil - wonderful hospitable people. Cos & Angie xx Jan 09 Had a last minute week free & lucky Pete & Greta could accommodate us again. We never tire of this wonderful place. Log fires up the road enjoying time with Sonia & Emil, cold but bright winter days & lovely & warm in No 17 - so so comfortable. Walked up through the forestry in ever deepening snow to the top of the Snejanka - what a wonderful invigorating walk that was followed by a great Lunch in the 'Eagles Nest' on top. The chair lift down revealed wonderful views of Pine Lodge in the distance. Many thanks once again. Barbara & John. 4th July 2008 Last here December 07, lovely to see the different seasons in such a beautiful spot. Great place to be with the air so clean & healthy. The local Mexaha just 2 mins away served up great food (and cheap). Had a great time again & hope to return soon Barbara & John March 2008 Came here for a recce for the skiing & it couldn't be better. Didn't waste any time buying ski passes, no queue's.

About the neighbourhood
Above Pine Lodge, to the north, Pamporovo is situated high up in the Rhodope mountains on and around Mount Snejanka is where it all happens. Ideal for beginners and intermediates. The ski runs are located between 1926 and 1450 m above sea level on the northern, eastern, southern and western slopes of the Snejanka peak. The long greens and blues, as well as the nursery slopes down in the village are ideal for learning and progressing on. Ski instruction is of an extremely high standard and, because Bulgaria is so easy on the wallet, individual tuition can be very affordable. Many of the instructors also speak English fluently. Beginner skiers and snowboarders who want to learn and progress can do so easily here. Confident intermediates and advanced skiers will find a World Cup run and some ...
