The apartment is absolutely spotless, and beautifully equipped and furnished. The Kostenzers were very helpful and friendly both during the booking process and during our stay. The apartment is a 2 minute drive from the centre of Alpbach, and about 5 minutes from the lift station - in the summer it would be a lovely walk into the village. We will definitely be returning!
