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.

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. More
