Chalets in Austria - skiing in winter, swimming in summer

If you’re considering investing in a second home, there is a high probability that chalets in Austria have crossed your mind as a potential skiing retreat. However, that's only half the story, as figures from the Austrian National Tourist Office show that the ski season is now being outshone by the summer sun, with 51% of visitors now heading to the Alps in the summer months. We’ve taken a look at the key attractions to identify the areas where you (and your guests) will be happy to stay all year round.

The Straight, Lonehill - Chalets in Austria - skiing in winter, swimming in summer

Stunning mountains

Chalets pepper the ample mountain ranges of Austria for a reason: the world-class skiing. From the beginner-friendly pistes of Alpbach to the hair-raising slopes of St. Anton in the Arlberg region, there’s no shortage of excellent ski runs. Many are reachable from the chocolate-box villages dotted throughout the region, and offer superb hiking during the summer, too. What’s more, they often come complete with handy ski-lifts for those who’d rather savour the fresh air than work their lungs.

High culture

For tourists who want to go off-piste, Austria offers a cornucopia of culture. Historic buildings like Burg Hochosterwitz and Hohenwerfen Castle provide a glimpse into the history of one of Europe’s pre-eminent medieval cultures. As well as displaying historic artworks and artefacts, many offer craft workshops to help visitors acquaint themselves with traditional artisanal techniques.

Immersive events

Austria possesses an enviable array of musical talent, dating back to the days of Mozart and Schubert. So it’s no surprise that many of the country’s Baroque churches run programmes of musical performances throughout the year. Salzburg in particular is a centre for these concerts, and with a host of chalets for sale in and around the ski resorts of the area, there’s plenty of scope to take advantage.

Crystal-clear lakes

The tranquil Zeller See is one of Austria's most famous sights. Its clear, blue waters are perfect for a summer swim, and the large lake also offers activities including fishing, water sports, hiking and golf. If visitors can tear themselves away from the water, the town of Zell am See is also close to the Hohe Tauern mountains for skiing, and the 16th-century Castle Rosenberg for sightseeing. There are plenty of chalets for sale nearby our local representatives.

Delicious wines

In 2016, a jury of 39,000 travel agents voted Austria to the best wine travel destination in Europe. Defeating the likes of Bordeaux and Tuscany not only proved Austria deserves its place among elite wine producers, it also put its wine tourism back in the spotlight. Industry promoter Austrian Wine offers helpful maps to identify the best areas to find unique vintages and beautiful vistas located near chalets in Austria.

Despite all this, property prices in Austria are ripe for price growth. They’re up to 50% cheaper than equivalents in the Swiss and French Alps. And with 21% of visitors now staying in privately owned premises, it’s never been easier to make your holiday home deliver solid returns. So why not take a look at our chalets in Austria?
