Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Gemeinde Sankt Martin bei Lofer - Lofer apartments

Skiing in winter warm in summer. Perfect for families

Self catering apartment in the Austrian Alps, good for skiing in winter and warm in summer - perfect for families. The apartment has been fully renovated and appointed to a very high standard. Swimming pool, recreation facilities and restaurants are all within the stunning grounds. One double and one triple bedroom. Only 30 minutes from Salzburg the stunning Saalach valley is perfect for winter and summer holidays with a host of activities and sightseeing opportunities for all ages and interests. The apartment is in the grounds of the stunning Schloss Grubhof, once the residence of the King of Bavaria.

Summer: While Alpine Austria is a million miles from your traditional summer beach holiday it offers a vast array of wonderful experiences for everyone. Average daytime temperature of around 25 C in summer is perfect for both relaxing and active pursuits and has the added benefit of being comfortable for small children.

Lofer has many wonderful local facilities and, if you are willing to travel a little, there are limitless possibilities. From short trips to the beautiful lakes (Salzkammergut) or nearby waterfalls, to overnight stays in Vienna, Verona or Lake Bled you truly are in the centre of Europe.

Winter:The local ski resort Loferer Alm is a compact family-friendly facility which is undergoing some major investment. Last year the main lift from the village was replaced with a brand new bubble and for 2012 season there is a whole new slope with a state of the art 8 man lift and a fully covered escalator for the nursery slopes. They recently received an award for best family friendly ski resorts and best new lift from the premier German website, skiresort.de.

Salzburg Airport is 30 minutes drive or there is a direct bus service from the airport. Innsbruck is 90 mins driveand Munich is 2 hours - all on relatively straightforward roads. No sweat inducing cliff drops

For the adventurous skier or boarder the apartments are a great base to experience the many resorts of Salzburgerland. A Salzburgerland Ski Pass gives you unlimited access to 2200km of piste across 40 resorts, all between 15 and 60 minutes drive from Lofer.

Forget those terrifying twisty bus journeys up to the French and Italian resorts - the roads through the valleys are relatively flat and easy to drive . You will also see some of the stunning scenery of the surrounding region.

Choose from famous resorts like Zell am Zee and Kitzbuehl to the massive Ski Amade region.

Activities: From sedate walks to extreme mountain biking the Saalachtal valley has something for everyone. The lift system runs in the summer offering access to strolls in the alpine meadow, a network of hiking and running trails and hardcore downhill bike runs.

The Saalach river offers everything from a gentle swim in calm turquoise waters to white water action - kayaking, rafting, Canadian canoeing, tubing and Hydrospeed. Lofer recently hosted a stage in the kayaking world cup races.

Nearby there are several golf courses plus a unique cross country walk/golf course stretching over 5 miles. There is a summer toboggan run in nearby Saalfelden a large outdoor pool complex in Unken and lake swimming and water sports in Zell am Zee (30 mins drive).

Slightly further afield the Austrian Lake District is within an hours drive and offers both stunning sightseeing and a myriad of water sports and activities.

A world of facilities on your doorstep. In winter the skiing is extensive but there are also cross country runs, floodlit sledging, snow tubing and snow rafting. The mountain is also easy to access for non-skiers. In summer there is a fantastic outdoor pool complex in Lofer with flumes, wave generator, natural stream, play park, volleyball pitch and sunbathing area where kids would quite happily spend a whole week!

If you can drag them away there are tennis courts, mini golf and loads of activities for adults and kids based round the Saalach River which passes just behind the apartments. If you are feeling more lively there are swimming lakes, gentle walks round the villages and more energetic hikes which can be reached by the lift system which is open during the summer. The lifts can also be used for mountain biking.

Ski: Lofer has aligned itself as a family friendly ski resort. They offer very reasonable packages for family lift passes and there are 2 ski school locations - one in the village and the other at the bottom of the main ski area. This allows very young children to learn in a sheltered area, allowing non-skiing parents or carers easy access with minimum hassle. When children are old enough to be left at ski school parents can relax in the knowledge that they are never more than 5-10 minutes from the school should there be a problem. There are play areas at both locations and plenty of family friendly restaurants.

Extensive investment in snow making facilities and a beneficial micro climate means that, despite it's low altitude, conditions are generally very favourable. The runs are mostly blues and reds so it is great for learners but there are a couple of lovely black runs to get the legs working while the kids are learning!

Lofer is truly a hidden gem.
