Ahhh.....the mountains!

Our family of 5 (3x kids, ages 9.7, and 2) had a fantastic time in Rauris. The apartment was wonderfully appointed and provided for our every need. Everyone had their own bed and there was plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was well-equipped and having the washer was especially welcome. Parking was very convenient and the apartment provided a fantastic base from which to walk and hike the mountain trails. Our children quickly found the nearby playground and enjoyed walking along the stream in town. There were plenty of informational materials about the area and its attractions as well as maps and guides that helped us plan our days.

Hohe Tauern National Park provided a spectacular setting for our hikes as did the smaller valleys and villages in the area. Whether hiking it all by foot or riding the gondola from Rauris to the Hochalm, there always seems to be a mountain hut with a good drink and lunch waiting for you. Day trips to the spa/pool at Kaprun, the casino in Bad Gastein, or the lake at Zell am See are also easy to reach and offer plenty to keep everyone busy.

When we plan our next trip to Austria we'll definitely be calling the Thornes back! Thank you Andrew & Lisa!
Owner's Response: We're so pleased you and your family enjoyed your holiday and found so much to do. We think Rauris is quite special with its welcoming atmosphere and beautiful valleys.

It is good to hear that you found the apartment comfortable and it gave you everything you needed. On your next visit you will find a brand new kitchen as well - something we're putting in place for the coming winter season!

We had a very chilling holyday week in Rauris. The apartement was very nice and comfortable with good interior espacial in the kitchen. The chairs in the living room were so good that we bought some at IKEA for our media room at home. Unfortunately we didn't have snow in the valey but we were skiing in the mountans an the preparation was very good. We were walking in the valey and in the near National park. We had lunch in the Anderlwirt restaurant that is close to the apartement. They serve great food and good wine. We had a little problem with a heater in the shower but our mail to Lisa and Andrew was answered immediatly. So we spent a very good week in there apartement and we can recommend this to everybody who loves holydays in a small and silent area like Rauris-Wörth. Tosca, Dietmar, Ulrike, Sebastian und Martin.

We stayed at the mountain view apartment over the new year. The description of the property was accurate and had all the facilities that we required, although not essential wifi would have been a bonus. The views were lovely and the property was well maintained. We snow walked and tobogganed which was great fun, and we would recommend anyone visiting this area to try these out.
The restaurants were very good maybe take a German phase book if you are eating in Worth as some of the menus are in German only.
We enjoyed the New Year celebrations at the town square, lots of fireworks, music and gluwein .
We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting this area. It's also close enough to Salzburg for a days visit which is well worth the journey
We would certainly return.

Exactly what we were hoping for!

We were looking for a cozy and comfortable place for our family to spend the week around Christmas. This was exactly that. We were 6 total, 4 young adult children. The apartment is totally new, clean, efficient and beautifully set up. The outlooks on all sides are lovely and the village around is charming. Rauris is a very short distance away and has everything necessary. If we lived closer we would like to return. We have already recommended this apartment to an Austrian friend.

We highly recommend this wonderful apartment! Andrew and Lisa are friendly, helpful, and prompt in communication. They have a lovely apartment in a perfectly gorgeous valley. We returned for a second visit after a spending a great week here last year. We wanted a place that we could relax and feel comfortable, but that was also well equipped and nicely furnished.

We are a family of 5 and we had plenty of space in this tastefully decorated apartment. The kitchen has been remodeled and had everything we needed for the week. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The TV, DVD, and CD players were a welcome treat in the evenings after hiking in the day. They have lots of local information available about local attractions. There are English books and DVDs, too. Having a washer and dryer in the apartment and a drying rack was very helpful for our family with young children (10,8, and 3).

The views of the valley are spectacular. The Raurisertal Valley has a wonderful national park (Hohe Tauern) and the town of Rauris a few well-stocked grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, playgrounds, and a ski area. Zell am See and Bad Gastein are not too far, either. We traveled a bit around to other valleys, but our favorite remains the Raurisertal valley. It is quiet, scenic, and a perfect place to slow down. We hope we might return in the winter for skiing!
Owner's Response: We were delighted to welcome you back again and so pleased you all had a good holiday. Our apartment is equipped with families in mind, so it's great to hear we've hit the mark!

The skiing in Rauris is wonderful too - great ski schools and a lovely atmosphere - we're looking forward to your next visit...
