About Lysan Cheng

We have 2 children and live in Buckinghamshire, UK. We visited Kaprun in 2010 and loved the area and decided to look for somewhere to spend family holidays.

Lysan Cheng purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lysan Cheng chose Zell am See - Kaprun

We decided to buy an apartment in Zell am See due to it's beautiful lakeside location and convenient ski area, which meant we could enjoy it both in the summer and winter. Due to it's proximity to the glacier at Kaprun, it also means that snow is almost guaranteed for a long ski season. With 2 young children we love how convenient the apartment is for both the ski lifts and the pretty town centre. The leisure centre with swimming pool and ice skating rink is a stone’s throw away, the lake is close by for summer swimming and activities. We have found the people are warm and friendly, food is wonderful and there is plenty to do in the town - we are really impressed with the weekly festivals in the town square throughout the main summer and winter weeks. Getting to the apartment is very easy by taxi or via the excellent public transport links.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment has been set up to be as comfortable, cosy and convenient as possible. There is free wifi access and all the amenities you may need, whether you intend to stay in and cook or stroll across to one of the many eateries close by. There is a wide selection of DVDs in the apartment if you want to relax and watch a movie. For young children there is a feeding chair, baby cot, bed rail, plates/cutlery and a selection of toys, DVDs, books & games.

Conviently situated, not wheelchair

  • 4 of 5

This rewiew is based on two opinions:

Family apartment ; for a family looking forward to discover Zell am See and surroundings, it will be enjoyable to stay here. It is a very practical and functional place to stay. The modern kitchen makes it very easy to prepare wonderful dishes. All the amenities as indicated on the website are there and is working 100%. Easily an apartment that you can rent for 5-7 days.

Wheelchair accessible : Unfortunatly not, the option must be removed from the menu. Although there are no steps into the apartment the bedroom and bathroom are small or not accessible enough for a paraplegic or quadriplegic. The doorways are wide enough. The bathrooms are not accessible, not even for a paraplegic.Unfortunately my recommendation for this apartment is wheelchair inaccessible.

Lovely clean, well equipped apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything you could need provided including DVDs, books and toys if you have children. Spacious and really good showers!! Very useful to have an underground parking space. Close to the city express lift, and the bus station for all other ski buses. Also very close to the town shops and restaurants. Lots of things to do apart from skiing around the area. Would definately stay here again.

A very comfortable, homely and fully equipped apartment with every need catered for, particularly in the kitchen! It was good to already have oil, herbs, salt & pepper etc already in the cupboards instead of having to buy absolutely everything as we usually do. Beds were very comfortable and the apartment was very clean. We have stayed in many apartments in ZAS over the past few years and this rates as one of the best!! Definite recommendation!!!

Magical holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults to celebrate a special birthday! The property was every bit as good as the description on Owners Direct. It was perfectly suited for our needs - spacious, comfortable and very well maintained. We were contacted before and during our stay to either confirm arrangements or to check we were comfortably settled. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and we fully intend to go back there ourselves. We found it very convenient for the ski lifts, ski equipment hire, supermarkets, shops etc. We were particularly fond of the Crazy Daisy for apres ski! Also the Hotel Feinschmeck is a favourite venue for an evening meal.

Walking distances - 3 mins to City Xpress lift, 3 mins to bus stop for Kaprun/glacier, indoor swimming pool and ice skating rink is across the street, 2 mins to pedestrianised town centre with shops/restaurants/amenities, 5 mins to the lake and wonderful children's play park, 7 mins to the train station.

There are many activities that can be enjoyed on the beautiful Lake Zell.

Other local activities include bike hire, toboggan run, water rafting, ice skating, horse-riding, canyoning, rock climbing, tennis and squash.
