Main House

This is a large, spacious and comfortable family home set over 4 floors (basement, ground, first and second) with full laundry facilities and a large family games/sitting room in the basement.

There are two double bedrooms, one twin bedroom (which can be made up as a double) one fabulous large quad bedroom. We also have a big sofabed in the ground floor sitting room as well as a double sofabed in the family room.

There was an extensive refurbishment and remodelling programme for the 2009/10 ski season onwards, including installation of a SAUNA, a new luxury family bathroom with separate walk-in shower, a new separate WC and a fully equipped ski store with heating for clothes drying and a hot air boot drying system.

The 2016 project has improved the ski access arrangements, provided our new family games room (with a 7' pool table) and we have replaced the heating/hot-water system, finally moving to gas!

There is wifi with Free Unlimited Internet service in the house and flat.

About the property

Dorf 30

Half timber traditional Tirolean family home, originally built c. 1730-1750 - the 30th house in the village - and was the local carpenter's home. Dorf30 nestles in a beautiful setting just a very short stroll from the village centre (1 minute!) and the ski lifts (5 minutes max in boots!). There is a lovely garden, great views and a very warm atmosphere.

The house has been the subject of a sympathetic restoration and ongoing renovation programme over the last few years. In 2005 we upgraded the heating and insulation and then in 2009 we built a new beautiful luxury family bathroom upstairs, installed a SAUNA and a ski drying/store room. Autumn 2016 has seen a major external renovation and internal improvement project, with extensive improvements throughout, including the addition of a new family games room in the cellar. Pictures will be updated as soon as they can be.

The separate One Bedroom Garden Flat sleeps up to 5 people, was totally refurbished in 2005 and is appointed to a very high standard with wooden floors, modern kitchen, luxury bathroom with underfloor heating. The flat can be booked together with the house for larger parties and there is a lockable internal door between the two units for easy access.

We offer FREE Unlimited Internet Access.

Winter - Skiing: The house is just a short stroll from the first lift of the Ski Welt system - about 100 lifts and 250km skiing. It is literally across the road and past the small local car park. For most of the season you can ski right back to the house.

Summer: Going is a summer activity paradise! Within a short walk, cycle or drive from the house there are many different swimming pools and lakes, hiking trails, cycleways, off-road mountain bike routes, golf, horse riding, fishing, paragliding, canyoning, kayaking, children's activity parks, summer sledging and tennis.

Why Joe Robinson chose World

I first visited Austria in 1982 and fell in love with the country. I discovered Going in 1989, specifically visiting this very property, as it was owned by the family of my oldest school friend (who still lives in the village and helps out when needed). I have always loved the house and the unique and calm atmosphere. I had the opportunity to buy it in 2000 and have spent the time since gradually renovating and improving it. This is our family's true home, we just can't live here because work and education keeps us all in England. We really hope that you enjoy being at 'Dorf30' as much as we do.

What makes this chalet unique

I think that this is the most perfect location in the Tyrollean alps! Walk out of the front door in summer and you have a million miles of perfect walks and bike rides, whilst in winter you have 250kms of fabulous skiing that starts just across the road. The best restaurants in the area are a 2 minute walk away and the village is beautiful, unspoilt and very traditional - and likely to stay so as there is such a strong community spirit here that keeps Going special. Right behind the house there are the most incredibly beautiful mountains anywhere - the Wilder Kaiser range is just breathtaking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful holiday in your lovely house, it was ideally located, the local cuisine was fantastic

and the ski school were very helpful, Patrick being outstanding with our rowdy kids!!!! (N.A. Rotherham)

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found the perfect holiday home away from home. The week that we spent at your home was certainly the highlight of our three weeks abroad. (A.B. Canada)

We absolutely loved the area - the village of Going is a well kept secret, the people are very friendly and all your information on the restaurants etc were spot on - thanks. It was so fantastic to be able to relax in a comfortable homely house. The house was great we loved it, and so spacious. The kids loved their cute beds on the top floor. (S.P. Ireland)

The house was just brilliant - having such a lot of space really helped and we will not hesitate in recommending it to everyone we know!! (C.W. & B.O. Buckinghamshire)

We have stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 children under 10. We had two other families join us over the week.

We were all blow away by the house and the area.

The house is really comfortable, it accommodated us with room to spare and there were many games and other things to entertain.

Fortunately for us the weather was amazing and so we spent most of our time outside.

Our days were spent at one of the many Lake pools - in Ellmau or Going or hiking up a mountain.

The lifts are open and at the top are wonderful kid friendly activity places with play parks and trails. The kids walked whilst being entertained. The parents walked and chatted and admired the view.

The food was good, the people hospitable and we were completely taken - we will be back.

fantastic family property - so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We as a family have been visiting the area for years and this is the first time renting a chalet and going self catering. Would STRONGLY recommend it and this property. Ideally placed for facilities , the chalet is ideal for 2 or 3 families to use. It is excellently appointed and it is obvious that the owner is investing in continually refurbishing.

Have booked again for next year and would strongly advise others to consider

Geweldige wintersportvakantie bij Joe Robinson in Going am Wilden Kaiser

  • 5 of 5

Wij waren met 12 personen en huurden zowel de "mainhouse" als de "garden flat". Er was dus genoeg ruimte.

Bij aankomst heeft het huis onze verwachtingen overtroffen. Mooie kamers en de kinderen waren enthousiast over de bedsteden.

De grote woonkeuken was van alle gemakken voorzien en in de kasten vonden wij etenswaren en dranken voor de eerste dag.

De skischool en de skilift waren lopend goed te bereiken en het was zelfs mogelijk tot dicht bij het huis te skien.

Al met al hebben wij een geweldige week gehad.

Our 3rd stay at Dorf30

  • 5 of 5

What shall i say. Coming to Dorf30 feels like coming to your own home in the mountains. Well equipped for everybodies needs, cosy, clean and well maintained. We were 5 adults and 6 children. By coincidence the owners son Nat took care of our daughter Clara at the superb Skischool Schwaiger. Hope she wasnt to cheeky.😛The skiing area is great and the Access just a 5 minutes walk away. On the other side of the village also just 5min away you'll find also the access to the perfectly prepared back-country-slopes directly beneath the breathtaking massif of the "Wilder Kaiser". Last not least the great cuisine at the Lanzenhof. Food and wine worth every €-cent. Only conclusion to be made: we'll be back.👍

Large chalet good for families

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely couple of weeks staying in the house during August. We were two families with children and a set of grandparents stayed in the garden flat. If the weather had been better we would have made use of the garden with its summerhouse and facilities for children. The garden flat in particular has a lovely lounge area with log burner which we used most nights (despite it being a summer holiday). It would be great if the main lounge had a burner too! Both kitchens were fully equipped with cooking equipment etc and enough crockery etc. The bedrooms had comfortable beds and were spacious with a great attic area for the children. Parking is very easy outside and it was very useful having a garage area to store our bikes. Lovely small village with a friendly tourist information office on the doorstep. We had a lovely day at the local lake which is superb for children of all ages.

Car: recommended

Going is a beautiful and unspoilt village, nestled underneath a breathtaking mountain range - the Wilden Kaiser. It is a peaceful, picturesque and tranquil village with a few bars and some very good restaurants. Nearby Ellmau provides the party atmosphere if required and Kitzbuhel and St Johann are just a 10 minute drive away.

Golf: There are at least 14 golf courses within 1 hours drive of the house. The nearest is in Ellmau, which includes a driving range, walkable from the house or a 2 minute drive.

Ski: Ski Welt is Austria's largest inter-linked ski area, which includes Going, Ellmau, Soll, Itter, Westendorf & Brixen. Over 250km of skiing and 100 lifts. Most of the area is well served by cannon for artificial snow coverage and it all starts right across the road from our house! You would be hard pressed to find a better ski house location in this area.

Serious ski-safari folk can also get a lift pass to include the whole Kitzbuhel ski region as well, accessible by car, bus or interlinked ski-lift.
