A wide range of DVD's, cleaning stuff, washing powder, loo roll, towels, even power adopters. After staying in ski apartments in France where you arrive to a completely bare place and have to buy everything from scratch it was really appreciated. Communication was very good and Heather was really helpful, when we arrived although we never met her. The location is just off the main road and an easy walk to town. The nearest lift is a bit of a trek in boots etc, we didn't have an issue because we only skied in Zell on one day but it's a good 10 min walk back. The kitchen is pretty well equipped although 2 saucepans would be nice and a potato peeler but that's being picky. I couldn't find the advertised hairdryer which was a pain because I hadn't brought one. The only real negative however is that there isn't any parking and you have to pay for the main car park in town during the week, it's a bit of a hike and not cheap. You can park in the swimming pool for free at the weekend. The advert leads you to believe that there is parking and we chose it because of that. I would book again though because we very much enjoyed our stay here.
