Sue and Alan own the property and purchased it after it had been refurbished in 2011. We live in Hampshire and have two grown up sons. We are enthusiastic holiday makers and for many years have considered purchasing a property abroad. The idea of a year round holiday destination, which Austria provides, appealed to us greatly.
Alan & Sue purchased this apartment in 2011
Having visited the Alps on many occasions and having spent a memorable holiday in Zell am See a few years ago, we already knew that we had a deep affinity with the region. When we decided to seek out a holiday home, we naturally gravitated towards the beauty of the Austrian Alps and in particular, the area around Kaprun/Zell am See. The factors which ultimately swayed us in favour of the apartment, included the natural beauty of the surrounding area, its peacefulness and the capacity to ski in the Winter and walk in the Summer. The apartment itself has been developed to a high standard and provides good, ample accommodation and the stunning views that are evident from the balcony were a significant selling point.
It goes without saying that the property is set within an area of outstanding natural beauty. There can be few better views than the one from our apartment and the fact that it is south-facing means that on sunny days, it is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. In spite of being located in a lovely peaceful position, the apartment is in close proximity to both Kaprun and Zell am See with their restaurants, bars and cafes. A particular added benefit for us was the access to the shared outdoor, heated swimming pool, which we did not see in any of the other properties we visited. The presence of a housekeeper, who visits daily, has also provided invaluable assistance during the past year. Finally, there is easy road and rail access of the property from Salzburg, Innsbru.
After a long trip through Europe we arrived at Furth, outside Zell Am See, Austria. Wa arrived at a really nice apartment, with nice large rooms and a great living area. The kitchen was well equipped and had all the utensils needed to be able to make food for(in our case) 9 people. We also enjoyed many mornings and evenings at the small pool that is shared between several apartments in the area.
The apartment is situated in a quiet neighbourhood with great views towards the city of Kaprun, and the mountain Kitzsteinhorn. The local area have shopping-possibilities and more than enough of local activities aimed at an active family holiday.
We would most definate recommend a stay in the area and in the apartment.
Must see: Kitzsteinhorn!!
Sehr schöne Wohnung für 8 Personen. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt und haben es genossen, vier Badezimmer zu haben! Auch die Ausstattung ließ nicht zu wünschen übrig! Super!
Golf zell am see is set in the midst of this lovely alpine region, and within a few minutes of the property. It has two 18-hole championship courses, the Schmittenhohe at 6,218 metres and par 72 and the Kitzsteinhorn at 6,146 metres and par 73.

The apartment enjoys easy access to each of these ski areas within a few minutes. There is a regular ski-bus service (price included in the ski-pass), which can be picked-up within 100 metres of the apartment. The ski area of Saalbach/Hinterglemm is within a 30 mins drive and Kitzbuhel within a 40 min drive. The area also boasts 230 km of cross country tracks.
