The Hotel Emerald in Bansko is offering several special deals over Christmas and New Year's when booked through the online travel agency ifyouski.co.uk

Famed as one of Europe's most economical ski destinations, Bansko is also one of the continent's most modern resorts, with a great range of state-of-the-art lifts installed within the past decade.  As well as having low cost resort staples such as lift pass, rentals and après ski when compared to the Alps, Bansko has also raised the bar on accommodation standards in Eastern Europe by building hotels up to five-star standard in recent years.

The ifyouski deal at The Emerald Hotel includes a saving of £72 when booked for Christmas week, with the price reduced to £487. Over New Year the saving is even greater with the price down £125 to £569.

The Emerald provides comfortable, superior surroundings and a host of leisure facilities including a games room, indoor pool, and spa. Bansko's centre is 15 minutes away and the resort's main gondola only three minutes.

The price is based on two sharing a room on a half board basis and includes flights from London Gatwick to Sofia, and coach transfers of just over two hours drive from the resort.  Flights from either Bristol or Manchester are available at a small supplement.
