Good location for a short easy walk to the nearest piste and bus stops to get to Sell or the Glacier. Clean and roomy and decent size smart TV. Only little niggle is that the cooking apparel such as roasting tins/pyrex type dishes and a potato peeler would make a big difference to what you can/can't cook on an evening.

The views through the windows are stunning: you can see the sunlit peak of Kitzsteinhorn while drinking your morning coffee. The apartment is well furnished with a coffee machine, a combo oven and a dishwasher. Everything's clean, fresh and new. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
