The apartment is situated in a quiet location with easy access to the town for shops restaurants etc. It is clearly a lot quieter in the summer but a really great place to base yourself for stunning hiking. Several cable cars run in the summer and the local tourist office have a Summer tourist card which gives visitors access to public transport for free and a day of cable car use, swimming pool and choice of activities like hiring an e-bike for free. Karen and George were very helpful and answered any queries we had promptly. The apartment was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. Our teenage children were ecstatic that the WiFi worked! We also all loved the huge drench shower ... this was great after a days walking and I imagine equally appreciated after a days skiing. So to all your ski people out there why not try St Anton in the summer you won't be disappointed. There were options to throw yourself off mountains on paragliders or try the adrenaline rush of downhill mountain biking (cable car up)!
