Restaurant Review

Katie's Steak House is famous for serving the best steaks in Borovets. Portions are quite large and it is reasonably priced. They have a good selection of wines which you choose from their wine rack. The restaurant is in a cute wooden chalet with cosy surroundings. It is situated on the the main road up towards the Rila Hotel, opposite the Samokov Hotel and the Royal Plaza. It is only open during the ski season but some nights you might have to wait a little while for a table as it is very popular. It is worth the wait!


Samokov has seen increased investment in facilities over the last couple of years including the arrival of several western style supermarkets. The town now has three large supermarket chains with Billa, the German-owned chain, being the first to open its doors in November 2007. Another supermarket chain T-Market opened in December 2008 and this was followed shortly afterwards by Piccadilly which opened this month. If you are staying in self catering accommodation in Borovets we recommend that you stop off in Samokov to stock up on supplies before arriving in Borovets.

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2009.

We would like to wish all our customers a very happy and prosperous new year.

2009 is an important year at Concept Bulgaria with our Chamkoria Chalets development due to complete later in the year and welcome its first guests.

If you are still considering investing at Chamkoria Chalets now is an ideal time as the development will be completed in the next few months. There is a range of properties available to suit all  tastes and budgets.

Green Super Borovets

The main investor of the ski resort project “Super Borovets” will apply for a certificate for an ecological standard EMAS (Eco-Management and
Audit Scheme). EMAS is a standard that guarantees that all actions, products and services of the resort are under ecological control and will be carried out according to highest European eco standards.

Some of these eco concepts include the construction of “passive buildings”, the production of electricity from recycled resources, and advanced waste management systems.

As a result of this EMAS standard, the expected cost of “Super Borovets” will grow from the estimated 500 million Euro. According to the Sofia Echo, the project
director Julia Arabadzhieva said: "We hope to create a positive image for Super Borovets so that all eco activists will be assured that we will develop the tourist facilities and services in such ways that the environment will not be harmed." The investors believe the decision for
the ecological emphasis of the resort will make it immensely popular.

Construction Update

Over Christmas and the New Year period work was very limited on the building site. This was due to the building team taking some well deserved holidays and also because Borovets experienced some extremely cold weather.

For the last few weeks the focus has been on installing the windows and thermal insulation. The window frames have been installed in most of the apartments and now they have also started fitting the double glazing panels.

Scaffolding has been erected around the apartment building and chalets to allow the installation of the thermal insulation. On the interior of the buildings the first phase of plumbing and electrics are progressing well.

Furniture Packs - Coming Soon!

Now that construction is progressing well we have started to focus on the furnishings for Chamkoria Chalets. We have created furniture packs specifically for each property at Chamkoria Chalets. They have been created to fully furnish each property whether it is a studio, apartment or chalet.

Each pack contains furniture for every room and all accessories including curtains, linens, kitchen & dining accessories. We are offering several ranges to cater for all tastes and budgets. You will find that the packs offer an excellent balance between cost and quality. We will also provide a selection of optional upgrades for those who would like to tailor their pack.

Currently we are finalizing details with our suppliers and we plan to issue the furniture packs to our clients in the next few weeks.

And finally...

If you have missed our previous newsletters and would like to see them, you can view them on our website.

Warm Regards.
