Spacious and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A clean, well maintained, good size property with comfortable fittings and adequate facilities/ equipment to support six people (max).

The availability of a equipment maintenance room was the only feature lacking, however there are ample shops in the local area who can service any form of equipment.

A definite option for a return visit with family of friends!!

My thanks to the owners!!

Wonderful apartment for a relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment for the five of us to relax. Plenty of space for when the weather hindered our outdoor plans and the selection of books, films and games meant everyone was happy. I think the German phase book was used in earnest by our 12 year old over the first couple of days at which point the other two were being schooled!

Having a washing machine and dryer was great as we had spent a week in Germany previously and meant we could keep our luggage to a minimum.

The folder and leaflets on things to do was very useful and gave us lots of ideas (just need more time to finish the list!). The local restaurants were great with the children and they especially enjoyed Landgasthaus Weixen. Fortunately our waiter spoke fluent Pokemon so our 8 year old was over the moon.

The weather gave us everything from heatwaves to downpours and thunderstorms but I can't think of anywhere I rather be to watch a storm!

A perfect apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 days here, and it was one of the best holidays we can remember. The apartment was exactly as described but the views from the balconies on the two rear bedrooms and living room/kitchen were better, quite breathtaking to wake up to every morning. The apartment was very light, clean and well equipped, and it was great to be on the second floor, looking down on to the hills and gardens all around. The hamlet of Worth, where the apartment is situated, was lovely, with small shop and bar/hotel within sight. Walks in every direction, long or short, and Rauris just five minutes drive down the valley for bigger and better things - lots of inexpensive, quality restaurants, a few shops and traditional entertainment on one or two evenings while we were there. The Rauris bubble up the mountain took us to a fabulous high-level walk along the mountain ridge, and we walked from Rauris itself, up the steep sides of the mountains on the opposite side for some spectcular views. Everywhere was beautiful, clean, pristine, quiet and tranquil - a perfect spot that we will return to, I'm sure. Nationalpark Hohe Tauer was altogether outstanding, especially Taxenbach Gorge, and Bad Gastein, and we even managed to get to Grossglockner, which was well worth the drive up 30+ hairpin bends. Andrew gave us so much information to make our stay more enjoyable and was very helpful when we booked. We would highly recommend this apartment for a great family holiday.

Lovely apartment in beautiful valley

  • 5 of 5

We ( 3 adults and 2 children of 12 and 15 years old) love the apartment, it's very comfortable, spacey and clean. We were lucky to have a lot of snow so the view was spectaculair and we had a lot of fun in the snow. The apartment was very guiet wich was very nice for us. In Rauris, wich is a 10 minutes drive, you can get your groceries. When you drive another 10 minutes in opposite direction you get a lovely view in the valley where we had lots and lots of snow.

I would certainly recommended this appartment to everyone (please leave a date open so we can go back :) )

I hope we can stay another time to in this apartment !
