Sehr familenfreundliches Skigebiet, abslout für Kinder zu empfehlen. Das Haus hat alle unsere Erwartungen erfüllt, können wir uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen - sehr schön. Wir kommen vielleicht wieder......
Great chalet in a lovely location close to the slopes. The host is amazing and very accommodating. Would very much recommend this chalet and location to anyone!! We will be back!
The view from the balcony was so amazing it took a whole week of sitting out there in the sunshine to feel like I had been able to take it in.
The children loved the deer foals, the walk to visit the horses at the top of the hill, watching the steam train rush by.
The walk into Murau town, swim in the swimming lake, tasting the locally brewed beer and catching the train home was a day to never forget.
We have just spent a lovely week in Chalet Muriel. It was an easy 3 hour drive from Vienna and very easy to find with directions. The whole area was beautiful even though the weather was variable. Lots to do in the summer including tobogganing, swimming, cycling and the Murau Brewery Museum. The chalet is of a very high standard with plenty of cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. There were also plenty of places to eat out locally. We can't wait to go again - perhaps when there is more snow (yes there was snow in June!)
