Description from owner
The perfect low cost family holiday home right in the midst of Central Europe's most beautiful mountain range, the Tatras and close to the areas key ski resort of Jasna. And as of October direct flights from Luton to Poprad by Wizz Air mean that the chalet is just 30 minutes drive from the airport.
Benefiting from significant investment over the last five years or so, Jasna is now the undisputed top ski resort in central Europe, comparable in many ways to Alpine equivalents but at a fraction of the cost. Everything from lift passes to ski hire and even ski school is so much cheaper here. You'll notice that price difference in the bars and restaurants too – a ski holiday which your wallet will appreciate. In fact Jasna has won the Daily Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Best Up and Coming Resort for the 2015 season. Here's what they said:-
"A huge €130m investment over the past four years has seen Jasna, which is located in the Low Tatras, demonstrate its intention to take on the Alps' major resorts. And it's this drive and ambition that saw our judges vote overwhelmingly in its favour.
As well as four new state-of-the-art gondolas and three new chairlifts (taking the total to 30 lifts), a 24-seat funitel and 15-seat cable car connecting the north and south sides of the Chopok peak (2,024m) opened last season, making the challenging freeride zones around the peak far more accessible. In addition, 10km of new pistes have been carved out (boosting the total to 45km), modern snowmaking systems installed and significant improvements and additions made to hotels, restaurants and shops.
But our judges were most impressed by the massive improvements to ease of access for British skiers and snowboarders this winter, thanks to the opening of a new flight route between London Luton and Poprad, just a 40-minute transfer from the resort. And with four flights per week, Jasna is now extremely convenient for a short break or weekend stay.
The results speak for themselves. Last season, Jasna received more than 500,000 winter visitors, compared to just 280,000 in 2009/10. jasna.sk"
Jasna is an easy twenty minute drive from the chalet following the road from Mikalus up the beautiful Demanova Valley, winding up past the ice caves which are well worth a visit on their own. Ample car parking, modern facilities, a snow park and a strong selection of blue, red and black pistes make Jasna an ideal resort for skiers and boarders alike.
But a ski holiday in this chalet means that you have a choice of the other resorts, most lying within 40 minutes of the chalet including Strebse Plesko in the High Tatra, which is simply breathtakingly beautiful.
A short drive from the areas main town of Mikulas, the chalet provides comfortable accommodation for 8 people with beds arranged in twins and singles over 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom is ideal for a family or group of four whilst a comprehensively equipped kitchen even includes a washing machine just in case you're in need of clean clothes.
If you are considering visiting the Tatras outside of Winter then within easy walking distance of the chalet is the Mara lake which offers everything from fishing to wake-boarding, or simply lay back and enjoy a cold beer in the sun, or even a sundowner under one of the many stunning sunsets.
Also within walking distance is the areas largest aquapark, Tatralandia, which with thermal waters and wellness centre to appeal to the adults, will keep the kids entertained all day on the slides and in the pools.
Drive into the mountains, and there are many places to aim for, and not only will you be struck by the beauty of the area, you will also open up a world of rambling walks, horse trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and white water rafting. And thanks to a massive investment in lifts, you can reach the top of the mountains without breaking into too much of a sweat. Slovakia's premier golf course, which nestles beneath the High Tatras, is 45 minutes away by car.
Mountain places to visit include Vlkolinec, a high up, traditional Slovak village whch is a Unesco Heritage site with wonderful views; Strebske Pleso with its glacial lake and fabulous walks; Lomnicky Stit, again with wonderful views set up in the High Tatras; the river walks at Prosie; Orava castle and Zerhra, a Unesco protected church; and if you are feeling adventurous, Liptovecastle ruins which takes you through a forest walk including a natural thermal spring where you can take a dip to help cool off.
If you head up the road towards Jasna in the Low tatras you will come to the impressive cave and ice cave at Demanovska and, a little further up the valley, there is also a really good spa at Lucky, an area which also has a waterfall which you can walk to the top off - an idyllic photo spot! Another good spa is at Besenova, the other end of the Mara lake.
And after all of that, you can barbeque at your home while the kids play safely by the house in the garden and adjacent fields.
This part of central europe is just waiting to be discovered and its easy to get there and most people speak good English. And on top of all of that, the numerous restaurants in the area offer high quality cuisine and prices that will astound you for their value for money. But if you prefer to cook, the local town of Mikulas has ample shopping including, of course, a large Tesco.
Full details of the location and surrounding attractions will be provided upon booking and directions etc by personnel in the area when you arrive. If your party needs more than one chalet, additional chalets in the same location can be arranged through us.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review and very pleased you had a great vacation. We were slightly surprised so many of you were staying, the house is set up to sleep 8 plus one travel cot. So 13 will be a stretch. For week long winter vacations a dishwasher may be a better bet but we also have to think of guests who stay longer at other times of the year and for them a washing machine is more convenient. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Pulizia degli ambienti soddisfacente. Cibo (ho provato solo il menù incluso nella mezza pensione) sotto la sufficienza. Non erano in vendita bottiglie di vino. Occorre lasciare l'albergo a… More
“Lovely quiet location with good host”
Quiet mountain village but close yo major town . Car essential in this property. I felt that house could have been cleaner but host was v pregnant. Hope the baby arrived safely. We had a problem with the TV and was only able to watch 1 channel but was not a problem as we were outside. Good wifi connection . Host was v helpful with tips and ideas of places to visit
“Great family vacation house in Liptovsky Trnovec”
We (family of parents, 5 kids ages 5 to 18) spend 10 days in the chalet. The chalet is the 7th in a raw of 9 chalets, all look same, in a new developed small street in Liptovsky Trvavec (doesn't appear in Google maps satellite pictures, as for July 2012). It is large and spacious, with 3 bedrooms (2 for a couple, one can fit 4), 2 shower rooms and 2 toilets (total 3, one toilet, one shower and one contains them both). The kitchen is large, well-equipped and comfortable. In the living room there is a fire place, TV with DVD player and CD player. There is a balcony and small garden with grass. Trampoline and small playground for kids are located 20 m from the chalet. The home agent, Lucia, is very kind and helpful. The chalet and location are great, once the owner will allow payment via credit-card (and save redundant banks commissions, as currently allows bank transmission only), it will be perfect.
“good accomodation for short ski break”
went as group of friends for 5 day ski trip all worked well. Low cost airline and ok car journey. Chalet fine, 6 adults fitted in easily. Very alpine feel lots of wood, warm with everything you need. … More
“What a fantastic Skiing holiday! Great location and value.”
We were a party of 6 adults not really sure what to expect from the slopes of Slovakia apart from knowing it was going to be much cheaper then some of the alternatives. We flew from London to Bratislava cheaply with Ryanair and hired a car from the airport - very quick and easy. The motorway is 1 minute away and the drive took us about 2.5hrs. The ski chalet is in Trnovec is a pleasant village by a huge lake. All the bedrooms are all a good size with one of them big enough for a whole family.. The village has a small but well stocked shop and there's a Pizza restaurant which is really good. The Jasna ski resort is an easy drive, about 20 minutes passing by the local Tesco – good for buying the beer on the way home again at the end of the day!). It's divided into three lift areas and each has its own car park. The skiing is good for beginners, excellent for intermediates and good for experts, especially when there's plenty of natural snow as then you have the whole of the top half of the mountain to play on. Most runs have snow cannons so it's very snow sure and there's lots of tree lined runs which give you protection when the weather's bad. Nearly all the lifts are new and there's plenty of bars and restaurants on the slopes. But what really makes this place stand out is the prices. On the slopes a beer was just €1.30 and a really good lunch with a drink was around €4. Head into the main town of Liptovsky Mikulas and things get cheaper again, but the quality is always high. The ski school seems to be very good value as well with plenty of English speaking instructors. We popped in to the local aqua park one evening - it's huge and there's loads of naturally heated spa pools as well as plenty of water slides. A great way to relax after a day on the slopes and it's less than 5 mins drive from the house. Kids would love it. Slovakia is a well kept secret, I will definitely be going back !
