tour operator Mark Warner has entered the overseas property industry with a portfolio of property for sale in the Austrian Alps . The company states that it is positioning itself for the recovery of the international real estate sector. Mark Warner Property specialises in the sales and marketing of niche developments in the Austrian alps.

Mark Chitty – CEO, Mark Warner. Austria has always been a popular choice with our holiday guests who like the authenticity of its resorts and the fact that there is so much more on offer than simply skiing. It was the natural choice of destination to launch Mark Warner Property. “

The company y feels that Austria is significantly better value than that comparable French and Swiss alpine second home destinations with good quality projects starting from only EUR 3,500 / m2. This compares to EUR 5,000-6000 / m2 in France and sometimes double that in Switzerland.

One region that the company has identified for foreign buyers is Zell. The Austrian ski resort of Zell am See is part of the Europa Sport Region Ski Area with access to 130km of downhill skiing, with 81 individual pistes. Zell am is a beautiful lake side town with 138kms of skiing and just an hour’s drive from Salzburg.


Giles Gale – MD, Mark Warner Property “With the pound staging a recovery, new Air-berlin flights direct from Stansted to Salzburg, and the opening of Austria’s largest Spa, we are predicting that the lake-side ski resort of Zell am See is about to take off as a second home destination”.

The resort is sandwiched between the lake and the mountains, meaning that there is very little new building land. Consequently any property in the centre tends to sell very quickly to other European and local markets. For the first time Mark Warner Property is offering some high quality exclusive developments in the centre of Zell am See to the British market.

2 bedroom apartments start for EUR 249,000 and lake-view penthouses from EUR 399,000.
