About the property

Apartment in Rauris, Nr. Zell Am See, Salzburg, Austria - Ideal Winter and Summer Location

The apartment is a new build with many modern features. Covering 69 sq.m plus balcony, cellar and games room, there are 2 large double bedrooms, one with en-suite wet room as well as a separate large bathroom. The open living plan area has advantages of stunning views of the Sonnblick Mountain as well as access to the balcony. Fully furnished, a large screen HD TV together with DVD player and numerous DVDs as well as a CD player with CDs helps to keep all entertained. Popular games such as Monopoly are also provided. For winter fun, the main gondola is less than 200 metres away giving access to famous tree lined runs, ideal for beginners and intermediates. More challenging off-piste skiing is also abundant. As you would expect in a National Park, summer caters for many interests, ranging from mountain biking, hill walking, white water rafting and bird watching to relaxing in the many 'Alms'. Rauris centre is 150 metres walk with all amenities and a wide visitor programme.

About Jack

I live and work in Lincolnshire with my son with the added benefit of 4 lovely daughters visiting regularly. As a military officer I am kept constantly entertained with various tasks but still find time to spend with my children exploring new areas of the UK and Europe. In such a profession I have enjoyed the benefits of travel and long may it continue. Children's education is high on my agenda but I also find their thirst for something new and exciting stimulating. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be in such a position and I hope I engender the same spirit in my family.

Jack purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jack chose Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

I was interested in buying a property in Europe to further my quest for travel when the opportunity to buy a luxury new build apartment in such a glorious location and at a reasonable price was too enticing to miss. The contrast of the flat lands of Lincolnshire with the spectacular mountains of Austria always takes my breath away. Tucked down a dead-end valley in a Nature Reserve, the old gold mining village of Rauris is well known and loved by many Europeans. It is an area of outstanding beauty and the locals are fully aware of how fortunate they are. Their enthusiasm is reflected in their friendly and welcoming nature and the pace of life ranges from strenuous skiing/mountain biking/hill walking to just relaxing in the warm meadows enjoying the scenery. A truly wonderful place.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has all the modern conveniences you would expect with views that are astounding at all times of the year. Skiing was introduced to Austria by gold miners from Rauris, yet with such a tradition the area has not been over developed and remains a family friendly ski resort. The apartment is only a short walk of 150m to the main gondola. In Summer the Nature Park presents many opportunities for various activities, you can be as energetic or as relaxed as you wish. There are many famous sights to see within short distances: the largest ice cave in the world; the highest manned weather station in the world; the Gross Glockner pass (highest Alpine pass) and one of the deepest and longest gorges in Europe. All this and a Wellness Centre too to aid in relaxing after a full days fun.

Apartment with stunning mountain view and no noise

  • 4 of 5

Prior to arrival, I spoke to Jack (owner) on his mobile and he was very helpful with any assistance/planning was required.

On arrival, we were met by his representative who showed us the layout/do's and don'ts/tips etc - very helpful.

The location was perfect as we were there for general sightseeing but there are ski lifts not 200m from the chalet and a small grocery store/restaurants 2 minute walk away.

The chalet has literature/reading for things to do etc and for those who want to be lazy , an array of DVD's too numerous to count.

First appearances were excellent - the property was spotless, warm and cosy. All appliances in working order and easy to use.

Directly facing the chalet was a wellness centre with pool and Jacuzzi (we didn't use it) but it looked spotless and very modern.

Things to like about the chalet were:

cleanliness;location;quietness and a tourist card for small discounts for various activities.

One or three caveats....

There is NO internet at this chalet (and that is a semi big issue for me) - the representative said "you may be able to pick up a signal from the floor above" wasn't true and anyway , not very honest. - no matter whose password you had.

There was no cable TV as mentioned (except for a few hrs a day) and only then it was weather......not the best viewing if you want to stay in

The owner did mention there were "cleaning charges" and that was no problem,,,,there is , as well , a tourist tax (per head) which should be conveyed to each renter by the owner (not just a small print thing either)

Overall, Jack was very helpful (phone and email) the chalet was clean, warm, airy and well maintained.

Perfect for skiers' and those who wish to explore further afield and at night, brilliantly quiet.

It would have received 5 stars but for the lack of internet access....maybe that can be addressed.

Cheers and thank you for the great stay.
