We went there primarily for skiing, and it was perfect for this, as you just had a short 5 min walk trough the city to the main gondola lift.After skiing it was so nice to get back to the apartment for a warm bath in the tub or a card game on the deck or in the living room, where you could enjoy the sunset over the mountains. Close by was a really nice italian restaurant that Terri recommended, called La Rustica. They served the best pizzas and risottos! The apartment has a very nice atmosphere, and everything was clean and in good order. Kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of space. There was loads of fun activities in walking distance including; skiing (slalom and cross country), spa and swimming, hiking, ice skating, shopping and a farmers market on fridays. If you want a fun night out, we can highly recommend Max's pub on wednesday where they had kareoke. The alpine ski area was a really nice, lots of pists, stunning views and not to crowded. Finally Terri was a really nice host that helped us with everything we needed to know and had lots of good tips on restaurants and the area in general. Definitely staying here again!

                                                                                                A brilliant modern and comfortable apartment equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay in the Austrian Alps. There's a lot of space for a family of four, a very well equipped kitchen, even 2 bathrooms and a sauna. Arriving late in the evening was no problem - an easy arrangement was made to pick up the keys locally. We felt at home straight away. The apartment is really well situated and its an easy walk to the ski lifts - however maybe being a bit lazy we shipped the skis and boots over by car and parked up. Ski Welt is a great ski area by the way (but don't rely on the piste map to find your way around!!) The bakery is a 5 minute walk over the main road (there's short cut which is easiest to find by starting at the bakery) and one or two restaurants even closer in the same direction. A couple of minutes further up the hill by car brings you to Scheffau village where there's a small Spar supermarket & everyone at Rainer ski shop was really friendly and did a great job fitting ski boots. At the apartment there's a ski room in the basement almost directly below. We were so comfortable in the apartment that we found it hard to muster the energy to go out in the evenings much and we were happy soothing our aches and pains in the sauna and cooking in. Definitely wouldn't have to think hard to find an excuse to come back, and perhaps in the summer as well!

It is really spacious with all rooms being very large and comfortable. It is in a great location, only a very short drive to either Scheffau or Elmau. Keith and Manuela were particularly welcoming and really looked after us. We will definitely be visiting again.
