We had a great time in the XL apartment in Mauterndorf. We chose the area this year because it is "snow sure" which was important to us. The skiing at Mauterndorf was great and we also ventured to a few of the other neighbouring ski areas, Obertauern, Fanningberg and St Margarethen during the week. From the apartment you can walk into Mauterndorf itself, and the supermarket is very nearby so you wont necessarily need a car. We also found a lovely butchers shop/deli in the town. We had not stayed in the area before , the town itself is quite quiet although there is a nice restaurant there. The property is as described. There was a lot of snow, but we managed to get about by car OK. to be honest I have never seen so much snow so I can attest that the resort is snow sure at the end of December!! We put our kids in the local ski school at Mautendorf and that worked well and they had a good time. The ski hire place was also excellent with friendly staff. I would return to the area again in the future, although we might take the bigger apartment if we can.
Very pleasant and well-equipped apartment - the living space is small but perfectly functional and it is easy to get to the local skiing resorts. If you want to go further than Obertauern or Radstadt for skiing it's probably better to drive but there is a reasonably easy bus for those two resorts. The flat is quiet, back from the road, with some fantastic views from the garden. There isn't much activity nearby though, so be prepared to make your own entertainment.
