The spacious apartment sleeps 7 people in two double rooms and one triple room. There is a large dining table, a well equipped kitchen with a hob, oven and microwave. The apartment is situated on the 1st floor with lift access from the parking garage. There is basement which houses the ski lockers. In winter the 860km of prepared slopes with 270 modern lifts is a skier and snowboarders dream. The ski bus stops 15m from the door and it is possible to walk to the ‘Grafenberg’ gondola which is approx 500m. The 'Flying Mozart' gondola is a similar distance but uphill and easily reached by the bus which stops outside the apartment. Both have good car parking and the two mountain peaks are linked by the new G-Link cable car, which gets you quickly between the two, with no need for cars or buses. There are 2 ski schools in the village, both of which offer excellent tuition for groups and individuals.

We bought this apartment from new, 7 years ago and still love our trips out to what has become a 'second home'. We are happy to share this with you and hope that you and your family enjoy the beautiful area and all it has to offer in both summer and winter.
Samantha Rowntree purchased this apartment in 2008
It is in a great and highly convenient location - with fantastic hassle free skiing and access to a vast ski area. The central village location gives easy access to shops, restaurants, bars and the ski lifts, with the ski bus stopping right outside the door. Also, beautiful in the summer months.
Very large and spacious apartment with 3 en-suite bedrooms and a separate toilet off the living area.
It was a great choice of stay for Wagrain - great location, highly maintained facility, suited our needs completely!
6 days wasn't long enough! The apartment is comfortable, very clean, and spacious and the owners are gracious and helpful. It fit our family of 8 with room to spare! My kids loved the huge movie library and the games.The location was perfect for families on holiday. There are endless things to do: hikes, mountaintop playgrounds, museums, beautiful lakes to swim in, alpine slides all set in the green alps of Austria. We've been traveling around Europe for two months and hands down, the apartment and stay in Wagrain have been our favorite part of our trip!
After skiing elsewhere in Austria in 2010 we first came across the jewel of Wagrain in 2013. We loved it so much we that had to come back again in 2015. With some knowledge of the area after our first visit, we searched online for a property that would have all of the right amenities for our two families and be close to the bus route and the ski lift. This property was everything we could have asked for. The three bedrooms allowed the two couples to stay in a room each with the three children sharing the third room. Each room had its own on-suite bathroom (shower) and there was ample space for all of us to rest in the lounge after a good day of skiing. The dining room table comfortably fitted the seven of us and the kitchen had all the appliances we could want. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and the welcome note and nibbles were a nice personal touch. The apartment was situated right next to the Wagrain market plaza and the bus stop to the local ski areas (all in very close proximity). Restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries and bars were no more than five minutes on foot. Our favourite eating spot was Bosek's Cafe within easy walking distance and we had many a meal there during our stay. The skiing was fantastic and there were more than enough open slopes (even with some of the lower slopes closed due to lower than expected snowfall). We loved the village, we loved the apartment and we loved the skiing and would recommend all three to both friends and family.
Six of us stayed here recently, for all of us this was our first time skiing. The ski school was great, the apartment was fabulous in a wonderful location . People of Wagrain were friendly and helpful. The owners were really helpful - would not hesitate to stay in this apartment in Wagrain again.
We were with 2 families, 4 adults and 4 childeren, in this appartment. We had a great time, lots off snow.
The appartment was clean, everything you need is over there. Supermarket on walking distance. Skibus in front of the appartment and only one stop to the skilift.
It is also a great skiarea, for starters, but also for the more advanced skiing. We hope to come back next year!
The ski resort , lifts ,tuition and ski hire are all very close by, 5 Mins walk at most or a short free bus ride . Great delli's for breakfast or provisions on your door step and launguage is not a problem . Turn left from the appartment and drive for approx.. 10 mins for a nursery slop ideal for children and adults just starting out.
Most ski lifts offer bike hire during summer months and we can not wait to return and try this out with our friends and relatives .
