About John & Henry
Our family live in the home counties .We first went skiing in Austria in the mid eighties and fell in love with the sport and the Country. We have been skiing in Austria on and off for the last 25 years .
John & Henry purchased this chalet in 2013
Why John & Henry chose Stadl
We first skied the area in 2003 and had so much fun that we kept going back for more . We started to look for a property in 2007 and did not find anything suitable for our family until this year. The property sits in a great ski area with easy access to so many ski resorts. The people are friendly , the food the wine and beer are extremely good. The ski slopes are always excellent and the summer is just as much fun as the winter.
What makes this chalet unique
Our house is cosy place to stay after a hard day of fun . Relax in front of the fire enjoying a drink or snuggling on the cosy sofa watching a DVD with the family, or wrap up and sit on terrace with a hot gluhwein watching night sky for shooting stars and don't forget to make a wish. The views down valley and sun coming up over the mountain are lovely . The air is clean and sound of cow bells and the river in the summer are so relaxing.
