Perfectly located apartment in lovely Kaprun

  • 4 of 5

" This was our second year in this great little apartment.

It is perfect for us, a family of 4.

You are at the right end of town,

5 mins drive up to the gondola, decent supermarket 2 mins away and tasty traditional Austrian restaurant just behind the apartment.

My children love Kaprun as there are some extra things to do after a days skiing.

Relax in the spa or speed downhill in the toboggan ride. . "

Lovely place albeit not very warm

  • 3 of 5

The heating isn't quite up to colder weather.

For internet I would suggest the A1 Internet cube for 100 Euros, which includes 30 Euros for a months unlimited access, which can be got from the A1 shop in the middle of Zell am See.

Handy for Bella Casa restaurant underneath, and near bus stop to the mountain, as well as Billa supermarket across the river.
