Austria’s largest ski resort developer arrives in the UK

Hagan Lodge is the first ski resort from AlpenParks open to British property investors. It is an ideal lifestyle investment for passionate skiers seeking family-friendly holidays and a secure return on investment of between approx. 4% and 5.5%.

 

This ‘exclusive’ resort is situated on slopes of the Loser Mountain in the stunning region of Ausseerland, only 98 km east of Salzburg.

For skiers there couldn’t be a more perfect location. The Loser area has around 29 km of pristine, well managed pistes - many of which offer wide, non-congested and stress free skiing. It is great for families and there is a dedicated children’s ski school with English speaking instructors within Hagan Lodge so you can relax knowing the kids are learning and having fun in a safe environment.

 

There are also a host of challenges in store for the more experienced skier. In addition to the many downhill descents – there is a network of cross country trails and also a new fun park for freestyle boarders. And when it comes to the all important snowfall – that’s guaranteed from November through to Easter.

 

In the summer there is an abundance of activities within 15 minutes of Hagan Lodge, all set among lush meadows and crystal clear lakes. There’s paragliding, hang gliding, swimming, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, tennis, boat hire, the salt mines, literature and folk museums, ice skating, spa treatments, moonlight hikes, off piste tours, ice climbing, horse drawn sleigh rides, cosy mountain cafes, tobogganing, curling, and a number of cultural festivals.

 

In addition to providing the perfect holiday retreat, owning a chalet at Hagan Lodge is a secure investment offering a great return. On average, and based on the owner using their chalet for 2 weeks in peak season each year, after all maintenance costs, rental commission and taxes have been deducted, owners can expect to make approximately 18,000 euros (between 5.9 and 6.2% return) each year in rental income alone.

 

Austria is also one of the world’s most stable economies and the 3rd wealthiest nation in the EU. There is no ‘sub-prime’ mortgage market in Austria and property values have steadily increased between 5% and 10% each year.

 

Hagan Lodge is already proving popular with holiday skiers and is fully booked throughout for December, January and February – although arrangements can be made for owners to use their chalet during this period.

 

Austria boasts one of the best ski seasons in Europe and has some of Europe’s heaviest snow. The Austrian people love their country and take bold steps to protect the natural environment. Austrian culture is very much alive.

 

The arrival of AlpenParks in the UK is big news for lifestyle property investors with a passion for skiing in winter or alpine walking in summer. Phase one of Hagan Lodge offers exceptional lifestyle benefits with a great return, and is one of the last opportunities to purchase a mountain chalet where you can ski to your door.
