Our host, Martin, was very helpful with information and supplying towels, cushions and toys. Only having been skiing in Austria before I was not expecting it to be so beautiful for a summer holiday.

I think my wife was quite smitten with the country and I can foresee a return trip at some point. Mr & Mrs Mulhall Had a fantastic time at your apartment. A really lovely house to come back to after a hard days (and nights) skiing. The boys had a wonderful time on the slopes at K.Gora and came back to a play station ! can it get any better? Thanks for all your help and advice. Our best family skiing holiday yet. The Rawkins family The apartment was perfect for us & we made good use of the cool bag & walking book. We also went rafting, cycling, & my husband & 2 daughters went canyoning, paragliding, horse-riding, canoeing & swam in the lakes. We're all exhausted now! Once again, like to thank you for the loan of your love. Patchling family Its a beautiful country and your apartment was so well equipped and organised, it really made our stay so enjoyable.
