Our family had visited the area many times, but had never been this high up the mountain to stay! The chalet is at 1379m - it’s about a 15 minute drive up winding roads from just opposite the Schloß Mittersill. You need winter tyres and the drive up can be slippery depending on the weather. One of our cars slid into the hill a couple of times - but was quick to get back on the road. Not for those afraid of windy snowy roads with no barriers!
The barn is old - dating back to the 16th Century. It is modern with a load of TVS and internet (which was on and off - but generally ok). Everything worked well - and the owner was on call and on the two occasions we needed help, she was up within 30 minutes.
To watch the sun rise down a long valley is magical.
It’s an old building so the ceilings and beams are LOW - we had three brothers over 6’3” and we had many head banging moments! We would certainly return here - the downside being the long drive up the hill - but that was also what made the chalet so wonderfully magical and remote.
