About Helen Connelly

We are a family of 5 from the UK who love the outdoors, skiing in the winter, cycling & hiking in the summer. We visited Rauris many times before decided to buy here. We love the outdoors, fresh air, breadth taking scenery and the slower place of life here. During the summer, we cycle, hike, swim and also make the most of exploring the surrounding area. The whole family enjoy skiing in the winter, all our children have become confident skiers here. The gondola is a 2 minutes walk, no queues and inexpensive places to meet up on the slopes, have made the whole experience very relaxed and very different to our previous experiences in other ski resorts.

We hope you love it as much as we do.

Helen Connelly purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Helen Connelly chose Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

We came to stay at the Schönblick Mountain Resort in Rauris, Austria for the first time in 2009 and feel in love with the area. We love the modern apartment and the amenities, however love the fact that we are on the edge of an authentic Austrian Village. We came back for skiing in the winter and for summer holidays. In the ski season what makes it different from the other resorts we have visited, is that it is really stress free. The ski gondola is a 2 minute walk. So no buses or loads of walking lugging heavy ski stuff before you get started. There are even lockers available at the gondola station so that you can leave all your ski's there for the next day. We are a short 2 minute walk into town and everything is accessible on foot.

What makes this apartment unique

Rauris is a traditional Austrian village, therefore you really feel like you are in the real Austria. You get to witness village life and how they adapt to the changing seasons. Farming and outdoor activities in the summer & skiing in the winter.

It is a short walk into the village centre and there are numerous places to eat, drink & take in the breath taking views. Everything you need is close by, however you are just a short drive or bus ride to larger towns and places of interest.

The short walk to the gondola station in the ski season, lack of queues and long blue runs, makes it the perfect skiing destination for beginners and intermediates. There is enough to keep the more adventurous busy for a week. With more challenging skiing just a short drive away, which includes a glazier. This is the perfect place to learn how to ski, particularly good for families.

Rauris is so relaxing, you literally feel the stress drain away as you drive into the valley. Part of the National Park, it is very unspoilt.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this fantastic family friendly apartment over New Year 2013/2014 for one week. A perfect destination for beginner and intermediate skiers. The children really enjoyed the very popular English speaking Karl Maier ski school, whilst my wife and I were hitting the slopes. In the late afternoons we all made the most of the fantastic Pool and Spa, before enjoying dinner out in one of the many quaint, and very reasonably priced restaurants that Rauris has to offer and an evening drink at the Bar.

The scenery was fantastic, the people were very friendly and the snow was great. We had no problems booking the apartment, it was very quick and efficient, and the apartment was in perfect condition when we arrived.

We will be returning again very soon. Mr Severs, Newcastle, UK

This apartment is in a fantastic location with stunning views. Very well equipped and comfortable, with a large ground floor balcony. The apartment is within walking distance of the local village with restaurants and bars. Plenty of hiking trails and cycle routes. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and made the transaction very easy. An added bonus was the Spa which was a real treat to relax in after a day hiking! Looking forward to a winter holiday here to see the place in the snow!

Rediscover skiing in Rauris!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is perfect for a Skiing holiday. Under floor heating gives a lovely warm welcome when you return from the slopes and masses of hot water means no-one is unable to shower or bathe. Everything is clean and tidy and you can cook efficiently in the kitchen. We hadn' t skied for 23 years, but it really is like riding bike!! We will be back !

Amazing holiday from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing holiday from start to finish! Wish we would of booked longer as we didn't get chance to do all the things we wanted to do. The views are breath taking (no matter what time of day or the weather).

The apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Perfect to chill out watching DVDs, playing cards and catching up with friends whilst the kids sleep. The management staff were very helpful and always obtainable.

The onsite pool is open in the afternoon so came in handy after a long day walking and sightseeing.

We visited the gondolas, Salzburg zoo, Salzburg town (using park and ride) zel am see, national park and weixen restaurant.

The local amenities are accessible and very close to the apartment. The local restaurants are good (although if you are not a fan of salt on your food you need to request as food is very salty everywhere)! The outdoor pool is very entertaining for children and good for the adults to relax (and catch up on sunbathing)!

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and are planning another visit in the next few years to complete everything we wanted to do.

Thank you for having us.
