About the Owner

Sue and Alan own the property and purchased it after it had been refurbished in 2011. We live in Hampshire and have two grown up sons. We are enthusiastic holiday makers and for many years have considered purchasing a property abroad. The idea of a year round holiday destination, which Austria provides, appealed to us greatly.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What to say about the apartment.. it is simply perfect.

We found it exactly how it was described, 4 bedrooms each of it with private toilet which was the main reason we choose that location instead of others. The kitchen is full equipped. It is clean and perfectly organized. There is also a nice library with many different guide books of Austria, Salzburg area and Salzburg city. The owner was friendly and available to answer to my request all the month before our stay, and the day of our arrival came a lady giving us last information and instructions how to close the apartment. The weather wasn't very sunny (unfortunately) but in the only day we had some good weather we had great fun in the swimming pool, very clean and nice.

We truly recommend this apartment to everybody want to enjoy a nice stay in Kaprun Area, visiting the surrounding, travelling with friends but keeping their own privacy.

Anna and the Bazzano group of friends!!

Location

From the Owner

Having visited the Alps on many occasions and having spent a memorable holiday in Zell am See a few years ago, we already knew that we had a deep affinity with the region. When we decided to seek out a holiday home, we naturally gravitated towards the beauty of the Austrian Alps and in particular, the area around Kaprun/Zell am See. The factors which ultimately swayed us in favour of the apartment, included the natural beauty of the surrounding area, its peacefulness and the capacity to ski in the Winter and walk in the Summer. The apartment itself has been developed to a high standard and provides good, ample accommodation and the stunning views that are evident from the balcony were a significant selling point.

Further Details:

The apartment is set in the Salzach valley in a beautiful and peaceful area and has beautiful alpine views in all directions. It is situated in close proximity to Kaprun and Zell am See. The region is suitable as a year-round holiday destination, providing access to excellent ski areas in the Winter, on nearby slopes (plus year-round glacier skiing) and a multitude of outdoor activities in the Summer, including trekking, walking, climbing, cycling, para-gliding, golf and swimming. For the less energetic, there are lovely walks everywhere and the nearby Tauern Spa provides its visitors an opportunity to use the many swimming pools, saunas and restaurants.

There are many restaurant choices, both in Kaprun and Zell am See, with Hilbergers, Tafern, Jagawirt and Auhof (Kaprun) and Steinerwirt and Deins and Meins (Zell am See) being particular favourites of the owners. In addition, there are many nice cafes and cake shops, suitable for afternoon coffee and apfelstrudel.

For day trips, the property is in proximity to Kitzbuhel (pretty alpine town, with good shopping and cable cars up to the Hahnenkamm and Kitzbuheler Horn and with a super drive across the Pass Thurn), the Krimml Waterfalls, the Sigmund Thun Gorge and the Grossglockner. Both Salzburg and Innsbruck can also be accessed either by road or by train from Zell am See.

On occasional wet days, guests are recommended to try out the Tauern Spa, situated within a short drive of the apartment.

Facilities

From the Owner

It goes without saying that the property is set within an area of outstanding natural beauty. There can be few better views than the one from our apartment and the fact that it is south-facing means that on sunny days, it is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. In spite of being located in a lovely peaceful position, the apartment is in close proximity to both Kaprun and Zell am See with their restaurants, bars and cafes. A particular added benefit for us was the access to the shared outdoor, heated swimming pool, which we did not see in any of the other properties we visited. The presence of a housekeeper, who visits daily, has also provided invaluable assistance during the past year. Finally, there is easy road and rail access of the property from Salzburg, Innsbru.
