A holiday based in Chalet Elizabeth gives you the best of both worlds. You have easy access to the bustling ski resort of Borovets,but can experience a little more of the local flavour of the country you are visiting in the quiet rural escape that is Govedartsi. Here you will find the real Bulgaria with its friendly people, not to mention all manner of farm animals wandering free around the village. A real spectacle in itself.
The chalet is finished to a high western standard and provides generous, luxury accommodation for eight to nine people. Its oil fired central heating and woodburning stove in the living room make it a cosy retreat after a long day's skiing, whilst its large bright and airy rooms provide a break from the hot summer sun.
