About the Owner

We live in Derby in the UK and always wanted a place in the mountains, one that we could enjoy all year round. We have loved winter sports for many years and were particularly drawn to Austria. The scenery, skiing, lakes and year round activities ensures every visit is memorable. Kaprun is a lovely friendly village and it really feels like home-from-home to us.

We have skied with the whole family in Many resorts around the world but love the cosiness of Kaprun and the surrounding area.

We stayed for 4 months and loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

We did the ski season and stayed at this fab apartment. It was home from home and I couldn't find a single thing wrong (not that I was looking!) It was super clean, comfortable and perfect for our needs. We had a house full of stuff with us and there was pleanty of room. The beds are SUPER comfy and everyone who came to stay slept like babies. The wifi signal is excellent as well as all the plumbing and heating. The balcony was lovely to sit and have our breakfast on with a lovely view of the Glacier. The Supermarket is just downstairs which couldn't be more convenient.

There is an excellent bus service to all the local slopes as well as the Glacier. Kaprun has some fab restaurants and the ski system works with excellent efficiency. We miss it very much and I hope we will go back soon!

Location

From the Owner

We were drawn to Kaprun because of the diversity of the ski area in and around the area, the Glacier was also a big selling point because we wanted somewhere snow-sure. The idea of skiing in the morning in the summer and swimming in the lake or golfing in the afternoon really appealed to us. Austria really does offer unspoilt Alpine mountain villages and scenery. Kaprun in particular has an endearing alpine atmosphere with lively bars, cafés and great restaurants. There is so much to do and my whole family enjoy visiting in both the summer and the winter. The accommodation is really spacious, we have both spent many a ski holiday in cramped apartments in France, buying in Austria was an obvious choice.

Lake Zell

In the summer the lovely outdoor (lido) pool and grassy area right next to the lake is a great way to enjoy the sunshine. In the summer there really is no end to the activities on the lake, whether it's swimming, pedaloes a boat trip or canoeing. Children will certainly come away with a new experience from a holiday in Kaprun, whether it's pony trekking, or even hiking with Lamas.

The 'Schmittenhöhe' and 'Kitzsteinhorn' courses, named for the local mountains of the region, make up the largest golf resort of the Austrian Alps. This mixture of sporting challenges and a varied landscape has attracked the likes of Greg Norman or Steve Ballesteros.

On this course (Par 72, SSS 72), men play over a distance of 6,218 metres, ladies have 750 metres less to master. At Kitzsteinhorn (Par 73, SSS 72), it is a question of moving the ball across 6.146 metres, for the ladies it's 5,421 metres.
