About Helen Connelly

As a family we love the outdoors. Skiing in the winter and cycling and hiking in the summer. We love stunning scenery and Austria definitely has that!

Helen Connelly purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Helen Connelly chose Rauris

We visited Rauris for a number of years, skiing in the winter and exploring in the summer. We loved the endless amount of walks and cycle routes to explore. The stunning scenery still takes our breath away. We decided to purchase an apartment on the Schonblick Mountain Resort because of the amazing onsite facilities, with the added benefit of being a few minutes walk into the centre of the village.

What makes this apartment unique

Skiing gondola and ski schools are opposite, so no bus rides!

Onsite spa & pool, great for relaxing after a long day on the slopes.

Eva Maria 2 is a ground floor apartment with a raised wrap around balcony, having the benefit of sun most of the day.

Included is an underground parking space, onsite laundry room, boot room and gym.

Rauris is in National Park, therefore is not over developed. The scenery in breathtaking.

A stunning traditional Alpine village with all the modern facilities needed for a very enjoyable holiday.

2 minutes walk into the centre of the village, with numerous restaurants and bars.

Rauris is a wonderful place to have a holiday with so many activities to try, or to use as a base to visit the many wonderful places. Zell em See has a lovely lake and is only a short drive. Salzburg for shopping and site seeing is an hours drive north. Visit the Eagles Nest (Hitlers holiday home) for some culture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this fantastic family friendly apartment over New Year 2013/2014 for one week. A perfect destination for beginner and intermediate skiers. The children really enjoyed the very popular English speaking Karl Maier ski school, whilst my wife and I were hitting the slopes. In the late afternoons we all made the most of the fantastic Pool and Spa, before enjoying dinner out in one of the many quaint, and very reasonably priced restaurants that Rauris has to offer and an evening drink at the Bar.

The scenery was fantastic, the people were very friendly and the snow was great. We had no problems booking the apartment, it was very quick and efficient, and the apartment was in perfect condition when we arrived.

We will be returning again very soon. Mr Severs, Newcastle, UK

This apartment is in a fantastic location with stunning views. Very well equipped and comfortable, with a large ground floor balcony. The apartment is within walking distance of the local village with restaurants and bars. Plenty of hiking trails and cycle routes. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and made the transaction very easy. An added bonus was the Spa which was a real treat to relax in after a day hiking! Looking forward to a winter holiday here to see the place in the snow!

Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in this family friendly resort. Easy drive from Saltzburg and great to have the reserved underground parking spot. Apartment is comfortable and well equiped and only a short walk to the lift station. If skiing book a locker at the ski hire shop. All in all a great apartment and location. Would return again

Wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is perfectly placed, less than 10 minutes walk into Rauris centre. It was extremely well equipped and decorated to a high standard, in keeping with its surroundings. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. You have private parking and free access to the onsite pool and sauna, which we used daily. The views were stunning at the height of the Summer, and can imagine it is equally impressive in the Winter. We have been in contact with Helen prior to the holiday, and she was very helpful in all her advice with regards to activities...we travelled with 2 children and wanted a mixture of relaxation and things to do, and found this a perfect choice. I would highly recommend and hope to return in th future.

Rediscover skiing in Rauris!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is perfect for a Skiing holiday. Under floor heating gives a lovely warm welcome when you return from the slopes and masses of hot water means no-one is unable to shower or bathe. Everything is clean and tidy and you can cook efficiently in the kitchen. We hadn' t skied for 23 years, but it really is like riding bike!! We will be back !

Amazing holiday from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing holiday from start to finish! Wish we would of booked longer as we didn't get chance to do all the things we wanted to do. The views are breath taking (no matter what time of day or the weather).

The apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Perfect to chill out watching DVDs, playing cards and catching up with friends whilst the kids sleep. The management staff were very helpful and always obtainable.

The onsite pool is open in the afternoon so came in handy after a long day walking and sightseeing.

We visited the gondolas, Salzburg zoo, Salzburg town (using park and ride) zel am see, national park and weixen restaurant.

The local amenities are accessible and very close to the apartment. The local restaurants are good (although if you are not a fan of salt on your food you need to request as food is very salty everywhere)! The outdoor pool is very entertaining for children and good for the adults to relax (and catch up on sunbathing)!

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and are planning another visit in the next few years to complete everything we wanted to do.

Thank you for having us.

Schöne große Wohnung

Glad you discovered this beautiful valley hidden away in the national park and we would love to welcome you back again.

Follow the red/white flag like signs painted on trees and rocks. Walk up to the Panorama Alm. It will take about 1:45 hours, but it is well worth it. On your way up, turn off to see the waterfalls which are sign posted on the left. Reward yourself for the effort with a bowl of wonderful goulash soup. Views are amazing!

Past the Bodenhaus you will find the entrance into the National Park. Pay for the car park and there are numerous walks to follow.

For the more serious hiker, why not walk up the Europe's highest weather station. You can even stay the night.
