Be interested to know why. We skied Borovets a couple of times, the first on a "last minute" deal just to get the family out there and on the snow and the second time because they enjoyed the first!

I found that as long as you understood that it was all mob-money and mob-controlled and that you could live with the slightly lower standards of accommodation than you were expecting (but still acceptable) then it was fine.

Oh - the other thing was NEVER eat at the hotel. The food is always shite but there was always good alternatives in the resort!

You're smarter than you look Cookee. Those guys all received industrial rose tinted glasses when they bought their apts. It's a nightmare out there.

We looked at buying out there when (well, Borovets) when we first went there 3 years ago and decided there was too much mob-money, dodgy development and bullshit going on to spend any money out there. Shame, because it needs the investment but, as usual, it's all going into one or two very dodgy peoples pockets.

Most of the money is going to 'developers' coming up from Sofia. There are more brand new black Q7's, ML's,X5's out there than Kensington high street. The investment has certainly come via 31 million Euros of (our) EU money. The lies and BS that the Brits receive is staggering. Old commies don't suddenly make good business men.
