Make Your Money Go Further Skiing In Slovakia

January 21, 2009Article by Ray Withers

Don’t put off that winter holiday this year just because of the credit crunch when Alpine skiing is available a little further east in Europe at a fraction of the prices charged by traditional resorts. Slovakia’s High Tatras Mountains are perfect for skiers of all ages and skills – and the slopes and resorts are at their best following recent investment in hotels and facilities. The Tatras are less than two hours from Manchester and Luton with ski packages starting from £399 – well below the sky-high levels in France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.

Slovakia has pumped millions of euros in to the High Tatras one of the best ‘lesser’ ski areas in Europe. If you are keen on skiing or snowboarding, Slovakian property is competitively priced – with new studios starting at £63,500 and a range of one to four bed apartments priced at £95,559 to £400,405 at the secure, gated, luxury Silver Resort. Investors can buy a studio with just £12,699 cash plus purchase costs and can get a guaranteed rental return of up to 6%. Located on the edge of the Tatras National Park, the Silver Resort commands spectacular views across the Tatras Mountains and the surrounding landscape.

The property in High Tatras is 15 minutes drive from Poprad Airport and five minutes drive from the ski lifts. The mountains form the border between Slovakia and Poland. In the summer, a High Tatras investment property has a nearby 18-hole golf course and offers walking, riding, cycling and fishing to visitors in an area designated as of outstanding natural beauty by UNESCO.
