“Amazing location and chalet”
Reviewed 31 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We (7 friends) had a great time at this well designed, authentic but modern, wooden and well equipped chalet. The location is absolutely stunning at one of the highest points of a small mountain village, with beautiful mountain views all around.

Everything was above expectations. This is probably the best place we ever stayed, in all ways.

Smaller hikes can made directly from the chalet and many amazing longer/higher mountain hikes can be found within a 30-60 min drive.

We all recommend this to anyone who enjoys a mountain retreat, comfortable hiking basecamp or just a place to relax in nature. Amazing location, beautiful chalet!

“Amazing. Beyond expectations. Great service. Ideal for family with teenagers.”

We spent 8 lovely days in August 2011 at this newly built and very comfortable chalet. We found the chalet on the internet and from our first contact with the owners (Mr. Miroslav Gajdos) we felt very comfortable and assured that we’re in good hands. Miroslav was extremely helpful providing useful information about the region and possible activities even before our arrival.
The biggest advantage of this chalet is that it is located at the end of an authentic Slovak village and not in a commercial touristic area but yet still close to most major tourist attractions in the region. The scenery around the chalet is breathtaking just as seen in the pictures. Once we reached the chalet after a long drive from Budapest we immediately felt the comfort of home.
The chalet is excellently equipped including all modern equipment. The 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms provided our family of 5 (3 teenagers) all necessary comforts.
During our stay the owners exhibited the same hospitality and care as we experienced during our communication before our arrival. Miroslav was very helpful in providing us with very useful traveling information: finding English speaking guides for different sport activities, suggesting detailed hiking trail plans, specifying interest points, coordinating some of the activities with the local service providers and suggesting inexpensive but high quality restaurants.
We all hope to visit beautiful Slovakia again and we'll definitely stay at Chalet Borovo.

We spent five days in Chalet Borove thoroughly enjoying it.

The owners are extremely nice, helpful and very frindly people who know how to look after their guests. They know their mountains very well and all the trips they prepared for us were amazing. We really enjoyed walking around the hill tops, swiming in the thermal swimming pool or just relaxing on the porch.

The chalet itself is very beautiful. Attention to detail in every room is amazing. It's very clean and fresh and comfortable and very homey. And the views...... fantastics. Just look at the pictures. What you see is really what you get.

We can't wait to come back again.

“Champion Chalet Beautiful Borove”

Recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at Chalet Borove. We were warmly welcomed by the owners following the 5 hour drive from Vienna Airport but as soon as you walked into the Chalet there was an instant feeling of arriving home. The chalet is extremely well appointed with all the creature comforts to ensure a good nights sleep. The photographs on the website give an accurate impression of what to expect but nothing prepares you for the stunning location and lovely views especially in the early morning sitting on the balcony off the bedroom watching the local farmers at work - especially the cow grazing in the meadow who was responsible for our milk and cheese.I had travelled with two friends in their 80's who had no difficulty in getting around so would say this is an ideal location for relaxing week in the the mountains with easy daytrips out for some stunning scenery and wonderful churches. Where this chalet really comes into its own is for activity holidays where you can try a different thrilling activity every day of your stay - from excellent walks to white water kayaking with an Olympic Champion all within a short distance from Chalet Borove. In the winter there are numerous ski-ing pistes too. In essence I would say this is the perfect venue for families or groups who want to experience everything that the Slovakian High Tatras Mountains has to offer but return each evening to a luxury chalet. I will definitely be booking early for next Summer as I can see this Chalet becoming very popular so get in quick whilst you still can !
