Aquilon Residence & Spa

Status: Sold


Appreciating Assets are delighted to offer for sale this spacious fully-furnished 1-bedroom apartment on the first floor of the Aquilon Residence & Spa complex, with balcony overlooking the outdoor pool and gardens, now on the market with an asking price of only 32,000 euros.


Property Description

This is a spacious 1-bed property as far as ski apartments are concerned, with a total built area of 53.17 square metres (broken down into: 11.54 sq.m of common/shared area + 41.63 sq.m of private interior space not including the balcony footprint), thus at this current price point we're talking about real value on a price-per-square metre basis, especially for an Aparthotel complex such as this that has so many facilities and amenities on offer. This property is located in Banya village close to the main Bansko ski resort and there is a free shuttle bus service that operates daily during the winter season to and from the ski gondolas. The interior of this apartment is very cosy and compact with the main emphasis on functionality. As such there is a compact kitchenette designed for preparing light meals and snacks, but does include modern conveniences such as a microwave oven. Off this kitchenette is a dining area with the remainder of the main living space devoted to rest and relaxation, including of course a nice TV area with comfy sofas and chairs. The main bedroom is similar to one that you would expect to find in a hotel, with large double bed complimented by an assortment of matching bedroom furniture. Next there is the fully tiled bathroom with shower, as well as toilet and sink plus vanity mirror. What is vital for any ski property is minimum fuss and maintenance, so wood-effect laminate flooring as well as an abundance of tiles, alongside neutral decor (white/pale coloured walls with contrasting earthy colours e.g. drapes etc.are the norm). Apart from the interior apartment comfort, the next most important features are the amenities and facilities that each complex has to offer and in this respect Aquilon Spa scores highly. It is not every resort that can boast about having their own natural spring water for pool, steam room and sauna. Finally, this property has a balcony overlooking the quaint gardens and magnificent outdoor pool (as our pictures show), plus it is only one floor up which is important for some (to be off the ground floor but not too far up when carrying a lot of ski equipment), however, Aquilon Spa has the added benefit of a Lift (Elevator), so this takes care of those concerns. Ski properties are rapidly coming back into vogue now that prices have come down so far as to make ownership more attractive than simply booking into a hotel, and this is a perfect apartment for those seeking a bolthole retreat to the ski slopes during the winter months, or alternatively as a haven during the spring/summer period for rest & relaxation (or even a bit of fitness and wellbeing too, such as hiking and hill-walking). This property can easily cater for 2-4 adults or a small family.
