 Mark and Co 11-18Feb 2012-06-11….Got back yesterday morning from Bulgaria , can honestly say  it was one of the best holidays ever.Ivan was great,little difficult with the language but we managed to get through what we wanted most of the time and our ski instructor  filled in the gaps for us when we needed  to sort out extra travel to Borovets so Ivan would  know where to take us and pick us up.The chalet was great ,could do with some heating  in the area where the cooker is (the BBQ area near the sauna  area) as was cold in there when we wanted to use the cooker there,the rest of the chalet was great though once  it had warmed though, would have benefitted with the heating  turning up for half a day before we arrived as it was very cold  when we got there the first day that’s all.Ivan and his wife always had the fires roaring when we arrived back in the evening after skiing which was nice.He also took us  past the supermarket everynight   as well on the way back for us to get a few bits in.The kids loved Gina ,she was following them around all the time.The skiing in Borovets was fantastic, everyone so friendly , we had our full ski package which was nearly new and our instructor Georgi was also very good (had a good laugh  with him). We would happily  return as everyone has a super time. Thanks again Mark.
