Modern, spacious and spotless accommodation, perfect location and gorgeous views over Zell

5 of 5
We had an amazing break in Zell. The accommodation surpassed all our expectations and requirements and we loved sitting out on the spacious terrace enjoying a glass of wine whilst taking in the beautiful views of the lake and mountains. The apartment is in a great location and most evenings we walked into town to enjoy a delicious meal at one of the highly recommended restaurants. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay and was spotless. We would highly recommend a stay here and we can see that it is also superbly suited for winter ski holidays as well. In fact, we are now in the process of booking the apartment for a winter break this ski season.
