Introducing the Mountain Spa Residences in St Anton
It’s not often that exclusive ski property in St Anton comes on the market for investment, but Kristall Spaces are proud to announce the Mountain Spa Residences. St Anton am Arlberg, in Austria’s Tirol region, is world-famous for hard skiing and hard partying, and holiday-makers flock there.
Austrian Ski Tourism — a Growth Industry
In spite of economic uncertainty in many parts of Europe, Austria’s ski industry is booming. The Tirolean tourism office reported 5.6 million visitors between November 2014 and April 2015, a year-on-year increase of 4%. Numbers from many European countries increased, notably the crucial German market (up 4.4%) and the UK (up 3.8%). The Chinese market, though not among the largest, has leapt by 54.7%.
These extra visitors need somewhere to stay. Austria imposes careful restrictions on numbers and quality control of holiday builds, which keeps demand high. At the same time, the government has woken up to the advantages of foreign investment and offers generous tax breaks, while the banks are well-disposed towards arranging finance, showing what a great investment alpine ski property in Austria is.
The Mountain Spa Residences
Website A Beautiful Space highlights Kristall Spaces Mountain Spa Residences here, showing the idyllic spot setting that offers stunning views across the valley, while Austria.Info mentioned that “the design combines the best of the traditional alpine lodge and modern sophistication”.
Apartments feature luxury fittings by Hans Grohe and Miele and floor-to-ceiling triple-glazed windows to take full advantage of those views. Each apartment can be customised with advice from top designer Köck & Bachler, while the complex features a restaurant, lounge bar, swimming-pool and, of course, a spa.
The ski resort of St Anton am Arlberg is justly famous for expert slopes and one of the liveliest après-ski scenes in Austria, but there’s a lot more than that to it. The 340 km of pistes cater for all levels of skiers, and the resort offers one the best children’s ski schools in the world.
If you’re not tempted by the exuberance of the Mooserwirt or the Krazy Kanguruh, there are many quieter bars and restaurants in St Anton. The town also serves as a centre to explore the whole Arlberg area, including the idyllic villages of St Christoph and Stuben.
A Great Investment
St Anton is taking its share of those increased visitor numbers, and the Mountain Spa Residences promise to be a prime choice. Apartment prices start at just €496,500, while expert management means just sitting back to watch the rent rolling in and the capital appreciating at around 4% per annum.
