Health Conscious Brits Head for Activity Resorts

Woking, United Kingdom, February 02, 2007 --( If you’re looking for an overseas investment that’s sure to be guaranteed to be rented out, Paul Cooper, Director of Principal International, overseas property investment experts say you should consider the much promoted ski resort of Bansko in Bulgaria. Its stunning mountainous scenary is home to much of the development and government funding in Bulgaria and its all round appeal means occupancy levels can stay high all year.

More and more of us are looking for activity resorts when considering a holiday, and surprisingly, ski resorts can provide this for the discerning traveller.

In the summer months, Bansko offers hiking, fishing, white water rafting and all that you would exepect from an up and coming ski resort in the winter. With the recent addition of the Ian Woosnam 18 hole golf course, just about all of the sporting interests are covered.

With the capitals airport only a 2 hour drive away and the very low property prices still available in Bulgaria, Bansko makes for an appealing choice for a holiday home or overseas rental investment.

With the UK’s property market becoming out of reach for more and more buyers, the more adventurous of us are heading further afield, and with its joining of the European Union in January this year, Bulgaria’s profile is being raised higher and higher and attracting more attention from the serious investors. With occupancy rates reaching as much as 85% in the summer months Principal International say we should snap up the bargains while the goings good.

The prices here are still one of the lowest in Europe, and with the 120 historic sites and locally produced wine to entice the tourists there’s something here for everyone. For information on which properties are still available to buy see their website for details
