The flat is small but clean and well equipped and perfect for a small family used to no frills. From booking to arriving and departing, everything was straight forward and easy. After a week on the wonderful ski slopes of Kaprun my children are well and truly smitten with skiing, so no doubt we will be back to stay again next year :)

The only thing whe've missed is a large kitchen on the ground floor for groups. There is a family room, but there is no fridge or water. Saalbach en Zell am See are nearby and skiing-area was super.

A very well equiped kitchen and large dining area made cooking at home easy. Kaprun town centre was only a 5 minute walk away, and the bus for the glacier came from straight outside. Great property!
