              Just pefect!

              This is a wonderful apartment, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We were met by Julie and Ian who are so very friendly and helpful, they have all the local knowledge you'd ever need! I wish I could have packed up the kitchen and brought it home! Perfect for us and our two dogs, a very short walk to the centre of Altenmarkt and a perfect location for seeing this part of Austria. Couldn't fault it, we will be back next summer for longer.

              What a great appartment!!!

              5 of 5
              This was the first time we skied in Austria and the apartment was a perfect base. It is very convenient for both main ski lifts (Flying Mozart & Grafenberg) which then connect to Flachau and beyond. Internally the apartment is as described with very large open plan living room, ample space in the bedrooms, very clean and well stocked up with board games for kids, and a great spiral staircase which kids loved. It has a balcony which is VERY convenient for loading / unloading the car on arrival / departure!!! Wagrain itself is a magical little village with nice restaurants and bars and other larger villages are only minutes away by car. Would definitely recommend (and actually considered returning there for Feb Half term, but already booked unfortunately :-( ..... maybe next year :-) Great comms with the owners who managed to help us finding an item which we left behind in the flat. Thanks George
