Situated in the centre of quaint St. Johann in Tirol, our apartment has breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains and village. It's an easy walk to everything and you'll have a wonderful time in both winter and summer.
The highlight of the apartment is a large, open-plan kitchen/dining/living area. Panoramic windows offer breathtaking views of the mountains, fill the apartment with light and open out onto a roof terrace.
The layout creates a wonderful sense of space and privacy. The dining table seats up to 8. You can comfortably sleep 6 in 3 separate bedrooms, all with top quality mattresses. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed and full en-suite bathroom (bath/shower & WC). Bedroom 2 has a king bed and small balcony. Bedroom 3 is smaller with two single beds. Bedrooms 2 & 3 share a full bathroom (shower, bath, & WC) and an separate WC in the hallway.
The bedrooms have excellent sound insulation. Even when we're there with the children, friends and grandparents, there's enough space for everyone. We put the kids to bed early and enjoy long evening dinners or movies without disturbing them.
