Alpine ski property can be one of the most reliable investments in holiday property abroad. The ski season lasts much of the year, while the few months when skiing isn’t possible attract visitors to the Alps in all their summer glory. France and Switzerland, though, can be prohibitively expensive, while Italy is cheaper but not as well organised. Austria, whose best resorts can match anything Switzerland has to offer, has somehow kept prices low in spite of its popularity.
Kristall Spaces Properties
There are Kristall Spaces investment ski properties for sale in many of Austria’s most popular resorts, where planning permission is often difficult to obtain. Traditional alpine architecture that doesn’t spoil the surrounding beauty blends with luxurious modern facilities.
Apartments typically feature triple-glazed, floor-to-ceiling windows, while features typical of an alpine lodge combine with fittings by top European designers and up-to-date technology. Many have onsite restaurants, bars and spa areas. All properties are fully serviced and managed, leaving the owner with nothing to do but watch the income roll in.
Mountain Spa Residences — St Anton
Rated by the Guardian as Austria’s best ski resort for groups, St Anton has a justified reputation for expert skiing and hard partying. But it has a lot more to offer — elegant restaurants, easier slopes and even excellent skiing lessons for children.
The Mountain Spa Residences, a new luxury aparthotel due to be finished later this year, is located in the quiet, picturesque hamlet of Nasserein, just outside St Anton itself.
2020 Residences — Kühtai
The highest resort in Austria at 2020 metres, Kühtai combines charm with an impressive skiing infrastructure. Its highest slopes have year-round snow, and the resort combines great skiing and traditional atmosphere.
The luxury 2020 Residences, named for the resort’s height, will shortly be opening in the very centre of the village, offering ski-in, ski-out accommodation for a resort that’s more popular than its size would suggest.
Silva Peak Residences — Galtür
A quiet, picturesque resort with excellent skiing in its own right, Galtür is just a few kilometres from its larger neighbour Ischgl, rated by the Telegraph as one of the best resorts in the world for guaranteed snow. You get two for the price of one — family-friendly Galtür and the more party-oriented Ischgl.
Silva Peak Residences, the only luxury apartments in Galtür, are now ready in the heart of the village, but a couple of apartments remain to be sold.
Kristall Spaces is developing new builds across the Austrian Alps, in Oetztal, Sölden, Zell am See, and Saalbach, a resort whose summer activities are recommended by the Independent of much as its winter sports.
