Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Kaprun / Zell am See, Austria your home away from home

The ski resorts of Zell am See and neighbouring Kaprun, Austria, are year round resorts high in the Austrian mountains. Although you can get passes to cover both resorts, Kaprun and Zell am See holidays differ hugely. The mountain and lake scenery is some of the most beautiful in Austria, and the ancient heritage of the area is a delightful aside to the varied skiing conditions which attract most visitors to Zell am See accommodation or a self catering villa in Kaprun, Austria.

Things to do on holiday in Kaprun / Zell am See, Austria

With over 130km of downhill pistes and year round glacier skiing, the Europa Sportregion skiing domain in which both Zell am See and Kaprun reside, is a fantastic destination for mixed party skiing weekends and holidays. The wide pistes are perfect for beginners and allow plenty of room for snowboarders to tackle the slopes beside skiers. There are also over 200kms of scenic cross-country skiing trails and a couple of fearsome black runs. If you would like a day away from the slopes, an apartment in Zell am See is also a great base from which to go snow hiking, ice skating, tobogganing, paragliding, horse riding or ice climbing.

The large lake on which Zell am See stands is also a great location for water sports, from sailing to swimming, and there is also a magnificent mountain golf course which remains open to visitors throughout the summer months. The lake is one of the cleanest swimming lakes in the whole of Austria, and is fantastically refreshing, especially after a hard day walking. Biking or climbing in the mountains.

Basic, clean, great location,

5 of 5
The property is basic but what would one expect for the money. It as everything you need for a self catering holiday with supermarkets close by. There are several exceptional restaurants within walking distance for those who perfer to eat out. The ski bus stop is 100metres away at the most, this services all the ski slopes in Kaprun and Zell Am See

Excellant

5 of 5
The apartment is very central to the town and only a few minutes walk to the bus and ski lift which was essential with 2 young children needing to walk there each day in all their ski gear. It is a good size with everything we needed in the kitchen as we cooked in most nights, It is clean and well maintained with comfy beds! It was very easy to collect and drop off the keys and the office was only a 5minute walk to the apartment. We had a great week in Zell am See and looking forward to returning next year!
