We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at this modern and well furnished appartment. The appartment is brand new and has a convenient location very close to the slopes and also close to the main après ski places.

The pictures and description on the website were all very accurate (no trick photography or exaggerate claims).

Owner's Response: Thank you Michael we are so pleased you had a good time and note you found the Apres ski ideal so do we and being so close to the slopes is so much easier as no car is necessary and you can pop back to the Apartment for Lunch. Some of our guests have required further advise on best Restaurants, Shopping and Ski Hire etc, and we are always happy to help.

Summer stay in Flachau

  • 5 of 5

Thank Julie and Pete for letting us stay in this fantastic apartment in the beautiful town of Flachau, we stayed in apartment 3 for 10 days from 3rd August 2012.

After flying to Munich we hired a car and drove the 2.5 hour journey which was fairly easy and all motorways. The apartment is easy to find and is really well equipped and has fantastic views looking down over Flachau. The scenery in this area is absolutely stunning and the weather was really good averaging around 25 degrees during the day.

During our stay we visited Salzburg (40 minute drive, use park and ride), Graz (2.5 hour drive), Villach (2 hour drive) and more locally we went to Sankt Johann, Radstadt and Altenmarkt. Salzburg was very impressive with lots to see and do, try to get to see the castle overlooking the city for good views of city. We found a really good restaurant in Sankt Johann called Cavalli for a good lunch menu.

Flachau had a good selection of restaurants with Hoagstadt, Schusterhaus and Music Stadl all having excellent selection of good food. Music Stadl had a really good atmosphere when the bands were playing.

The ski lift was running in Flachau and we went up to around 1700 metres and we decided to walk down which took around two hours with fantastic views.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this area if you want to experience Austria in the summer. The apartment was really well equipped and maybe we will return in the winter to experience the winter views.

Nice Place

  • 3 of 5

It was nice and tidy apartment with almost every things you may need, however it's smaller comparing to the photos and if you are having kids or old people it's better to rent a car for your daily transportation. The supermarket, restaurant and the kids' park is kind of far if you're planning to reach on foot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review I am so sorry you found it to be difficult not having transport and I do agree it can seem like a difficult walk with small children and Older people. Kind regards Julie

Flachau holidays April 2011

  • 5 of 5

I arrived there in the end of March and stayed till 7 th of April.There was still enough show for skiing and at the same time not so many people like expected on hot season time.The appartments is just great for staying it is very comfotable and have everything you just need.And it's about 30 meters on the right of the slope.So just grab your ski or board walk 30 seconds and you are there by achter jet!!!

The place is pretty quiet,but if you drive to Schladming (about 30 min) you can get some more Entertainment ,also there is a great aquapark in Altenmarkt (5 min drive).

well I would say ,If you decide to take one of these appartments ,you will never be dissapointed.Have a good Holidays!

What a brilliant location. The apartment is about 1 minutes walk to the piste. A short 200 yard ski down to the bottom of the 'home run' & you are at the Achter Jet station. There are shops & bars here & also the booths to book your passes etc.

The apartment is beautiful & is extremely well equipped. We never actually cooked in but if you wanted to the cupboards are well stocked with everything you could possibly need. There were 5 adults and 1 child in our party and my husband & I slept on the sofa bed - absolutely no problem. Plenty of room and the living area is big enough for you to still be able to walk around when the bed was fully out ! There is plenty of storage space also for all your clothes etc.

It was lovely and warm and extremely clean.

The boot and ski room is just outside your door.

The owner kept us well informed and the couple who look after the apartments out there were also extremely friendly.

Lots of great mountain restaurants to visit whilst you are on your travels such as the one which we called the Umbrella Bar and the Sky Lounge which are situated where the Achter Jet drops you off. For something a bit different the Lisaalm is lovely with some fab food and great music outside !! Ribs and the Pesto Pasta recommended.

At night we found the Musik (strasse) can't really remember what its called but you can't miss it, was excellent value for money. We had two birthdays to celebrate while we were there and as long as you produce your passport to prove it you can have a 3 course meal off the a la carte menu for 14 euros ! One of the starters was 16 euros so I don't know how they do it ! The Jagherdoff is also great. Couple of nice steak houses also.

Plenty of good skiing to be had. Venture over to Flachau Winkle and Zauchensee for a morning or two. You can catch the ski bus just down the road and it takes about 10 minutes. It drops you off again at the bottom of the Hermann Maier run so you just hop on the Starjet 1 and off you go again.

Flachau is a lovely lovely place & one which everyone should visit at some time or other. The skiing is suited to all, good or bad, young or old ! We have been twice now and wlll definately go back again & again !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would certainly use these apartments again.

Big thanks to Julie for all her help and for providing a very true & accurate picture of this lovely accomodation.

Like the title says - couldn't ask for more!
