Just wanted to say a very big thank you all your hospitality during our stay at Chalet Obelus last week.  We felt so welcome and well looked after in every way.  Have to say I am missing my poached eggs in the morning and all those wonderful 3 course dinners!  By the way if you could let me have the chocolate cake recipe and the tomato soup that would be great!

With all good wishes to you both

I can't recommend this chalet in Bansko enough. Joy and Simon are  fantastic hosts, cooks, advisors, organisers. We had a fantastic holiday and the food was amazing - both the vegetarian options (which I had) and the meat options (which the other had and told me me were fantastic). Furthermore fantastic news, they are e-mailing me the recipes:-) The hospitality and service are second to none. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Bansko is a fabulous resort for skiing and looks like it will be well worth visiting in the summer too, the village is lovely.

Thanks again Joy and Simon

Top Tip!

Simon is a great host who excels at putting himself out for guests. Afternoon cakes were a highlight and enjoyed Joy’s culinary delights. Chalet was clean, lots of room to manoeuvre, log fire, Wii and sauna all a bonus.

Just thought I would send you a quick email to say thanks to you both for making our ski trip so much fun.  We all had a great time. The snow was excellent, the food was excellent, the chalet was excellent and Callum will remember his 11th birthday for a long time - what more to say!

Thanks again.

Absolutely Brilliant Holiday!!  First time organising a group skiing trip and it could not have been made easier or more enjoyable.  Right from the start Simon answered all questions and nothing was too much trouble!  The Chalet in Bansko, the food, the bar (Constantly stocked fridge) and the hosts could not have done better!  Thank you again Simon, Joy, Brian and Lisa for a wonderful holiday!   Will hopefully see you in the future

We had a fantastic time, the best holiday ever. A group of 12 of us (3 families) visited Bulgaria New year 2009. Simon and Joy were great and couldn't have made our stay more welcome. The food was great, the chalet lovely and the skiing great and the kids loved it too. My boy Ewan who is 7 ate almost everything put in front of him and he is the fussiest eater ever and he loved it.  The chalet was well stocked with games and books for the kids and the space in the chalet was great. I struggled a bit with the skiing and on the last day Joy came up the mountain with me to help me get my confidence back.  What more could we ask for, thanks Joy and Simon, we would definitely come back and recommend to anyone

We stayed with Simon and Joy over the New Year 2009/2010.  There were 4 families and they catered for each and every one of us. We could not have asked for  better service or been made to feel more welcome. And the food....... am still trying to lose the weight! They are fab with the kids and the chalet is beautiful.  I would recommend this to anyone

Simon and Joy are two of the most genuine and warm people you have ever met. Nothing is too much trouble and with children this is an added bonus. The food is like a gourmet restaurant with the flexibility for vegetarians and children which is very important. Imagine this, coming back from a hard days skiing, Simon meets you at the bottom of the slopes, then takes you back to the chalet where warm tea, an open fire and freshly cooked cake are waiting for you! Nothing is too much trouble for Simon and Joy and they make your stay truly remarkable. When you read the guest book, you wonder where the flies in the ointment are, trust me there are none - this is an incredible experience and we are coming back!

You wont get better service than here anywhere! The Chalet actually made the holiday for us!

Simon and Joy could not have made our stay any more enjoyable. Nine of us embarked on this holiday, seven adults and two children (8 & 12), we had the house to ourselves, and the run of the house. Everything from transfer to and from the house, lift passes, ski hire and even lessens was arranged. Transfer to and from the Gondola every day by Simon was a joy. The sauna was always ready and the fridge always full of cool beer and wine, just help yourself. All Simon and Joy want you to do is come and have a good time and not lift a finger, and anything they can do to make your holiday better is never any trouble. It was my 60th birthday while we were staying, the birthday cake they had made for me was out of this world, and the bottle of champagne before dinner was a very lovely gesture, which shows what these people are all about. There is already talk amongst our group of next year. Thank you Simon Joy.
