3 minutes to read

Slovakia is an ideal place for a getaway. Escape your daily routine and reconnect with nature in a beautiful environment. Turn off your phone and relax in one of the most charming chalets and cottages in Slovakia

Chalets Jasná Collection

Chalets Jasná Collection are newly built chalets in the biggest ski resort in Slovakia called Jasná. But do not worry, there is plenty to do during the summer season as well: the Low Tatras mountain range offers numerous hiking trails of different difficulty levels, so it is an all-year destination. What makes Chalets Jasná Collection so unique is the comfort they offer. They are right in front of the cable car, so you can literally just wake up and go skiing in your pajamas if you want to. However, it is not recommended. After an exhausting day of hiking or skiing, you can relax in private wellness with a sauna or an outdoor whirlpool. And you do not need to go anywhere for your breakfast; the hotel staff will bring it directly to your room. This beautiful chalet is ideal for a group of 4 or more.

Gašperov mlyn

In the village Batizovce, right under the marvelous High Tatras, you can find a mill that is over 100 years old. Inside this mill, there is a newly reconstructed place that resembles a gingerbread cottage from your childhood fairytales. This cottage is ideal for a romantic getaway for couples. You can also bring your pets; they are very much welcome here. The cottage has a cozy interior decorated with a painting of the famous Slovak painter Marián Čižmárik. After a day spent outside, you can warm yourself up in one of the spa and wellness facilities that are part of the cottage. But the best surprise is definitely a fine dining restaurant. In Gašperov mlyn, they serve traditional Slovak dishes made out of hand-picked seasonal ingredients. You can enjoy a degustation menu paired with the award-winning Slovak wines.

Chalúpka Borové

Chalúpka Borové is located close to the High Tatras National park, so the surroundings offer numerous outdoor activities such as skiing or hiking. The chalet itself is a little bit hidden in the woods, so you do not have to worry about being disturbed by loud cars or neighbors. If you look outside your window, you will have the most picturesque view. The chalet is built in a traditional alpine style; everything is made from wood, so it matches perfectly with nature. From the inside, you can admire a big tile stove that is typical in the old Slovak houses. The combination of wood and traditional Slovak elements creates a perfect environment for you to relax. Chalúpka Borové accommodates up to 8 people, so it is a perfect place if you are traveling with your family or group of friends. You can rent the whole chalet for a minimum of 4 nights - or eight nights in a high season.

Stará izba

Stará izba is another cottage in a remote area surrounded by woods where you will be disturbed only by deer that might stop by. It is located in the Orava region, where the Slovak traditions were born. There are, again, plenty of activities you can do in the region, for example, visiting the magnificent Orava castle or some nearby open-air museums. This cottage belongs to a lovely family who inherited it from their grandparents and then, after five years of intensive renovations, opened it for the guests visiting the region. It is an excellent place if you want to spend some family time; the cottage has three bedrooms, so there is plenty of space. It is designed in a traditional Slovak style, which is typical of Orava. The central piece that will catch your attention is an authentic tile stove, but all of the rooms have some unique features. On the patio of the cottage, you can relax in a private whirlpool while enjoying the view.
