The Chalet was cosy, comfortable and a five minute walk from the gondola and the centre of Borovets. We were 2 adults and 3 children and this worked well for us!
We had a wonderful 10 days staying in Chalet Sofia.
It is well looked after and had everything we needed for our stay. The maintenance staff were on hand very quickly when a storm affected the electricity and the cleaning staff were friendly and efficient.
A highly recommended venue for those who want to ski in winter or bake in summer!
We really enjoyed our stay, the chalet is much larger than you would get in the Alps and is in a convenient location.
I've just returned from a weeks holiday in Chalet Sofia with friends and thought it was excellent. The location was perfect with just a 10 minute walk to the pistes and main restaurant area. Only issues were the beds weren't very comfy, although after a long day skiing you don't really notice and the hot water tank isn't massive so 6 people can't all shower within a short period of time. The sauna was great and fitted 6 people in perfectly. Despite other reviews saying that everything would be a squeeze for 6, we did not find that to be the case. The owner is incredibly helpful in all that we needed and suggested an excellent ski school and transfer company! All in all a brilliant holiday which was great value for money and we would definitely return again!

Just came back from a weeks stay at chalet Sofia, the back drop to this cabin was a snowy forest (we were lucky with the heavy snowfall on arrival), and it was nestled behind a number of other chalets, despite this there was still a feeling of privacy, and we were not bothered by any noise. The chalet itself was cosy (sometimes we had to switch the heaters off!), and spacious, there were 5 of us staying here, the beds were a little on the hard side but that was no problem after a few beers and a hard days skiing. There are cooking utensils and plenty of plates and glasses/mugs for 6 people, although we ended up eating out regularly. The showers had to be kept short to keep the hot water, but that's expected with 5 adults, so was no problem. The location was good, and a few mins away from a fantastic pizza place (Vicky's pizza bar).
The sauna is a fantastic addition, and really helped ease tired muscles.
The living/dining area was comfortable for all of us, whether it was playing cards at the table or watching TV. There is a DVD player, a handful of DVDs already there and satellite channels. The larger couch can seat four grown men. There is a double room downstairs and two twin rooms upstairs; one acting as a walkway to the other, with the latter having access to the outside balcony. Both the rooms upstairs were large and spacious.
David (the owner) was fantastic, and replied promptly and courteously to all enquiries. He also recommended the transport and ski hire (Balkan PMS and Hunters), who were both fantastic. We were dropped off and picked up outside the chalet, with no delays or hassle what so ever-each person we dealt with from both companies were brilliantly helpful.
I'd recommend chalet Sofia, and should I return to borovets, I would happily stay again.
