HomeAway Holiday-Rentals ‘Ski Property Ladder'

Idyllic winter homes from £200 to £20,000 per week!

As ski enthusiasts prepare for the upcoming season, HomeAway Holiday-Rentals, the UK’s largest private rentals site, presents its ‘Ski Property Ladder’, showcasing a range of ideal homes for every skier, whether their budget is £200 or £20,000 per week! 

Thanks to the huge number of Brits that have invested in ski homes around the world, there are thousands of options available for both the budget conscious and the more discerning skier; from great value apartments to large, luxury chalets with hot-tubs and bars. On www.HomeAway.co.uk there are currently over 33,000 ski holiday homes listed around the world, including budget accommodation in Slovenia and Bulgaria, as well as a wide variety in more traditional destinations such as France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Canada.

For those who don’t like skiing or snowboarding, these wintery destinations offer plenty of alternative activities too: whether it is paragliding and rafting in Bulgaria, ice skating and ice climbing in Slovenia, or tobogganing and mountain walking in Switzerland. Plus, many ski apartment and chalet complexes have additional facilities like saunas and pools, so no matter if you want adventure or relaxation, there’s a winter holiday home to suit.
