We built our 10 Authentic Austrian Chalets (with a little help from our friends) around a natural spring-fed pond, ideal for a quick dip and some sunbathing…people are often surprised by how warm our summers are!!
All our guests have access to our central facilities, which include sauna, gym, recreation/cinema room and relaxation area, all of which you’ll find only a few steps away from your chalet, or you can make the most of the facilities in your chalet, which come equipped with real fires, heated ski boot racks, DVDs, and games consoles.
Aside from clothing, toiletries and entertainment, you really don’t need to bring too much. We provide lovely clean sheets and towels, the kitchens are fully equipped. If there’s anything specific you think you will need, drop us a line before your trip.
We’re just 5 minutes from St Michael and supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants so you’ll always be able to buy food and provisions.
Our largest chalet sleeps 14, although it can also be separated into a 10-bed chalet and 4-bed apartment. We have a further seven 10-bed chalets, two 6-bed chalets and the 4-bed apartment mentioned above. To get more information see the resort layout and chalet specifications here then let us know which chalet(s) you are interested in, your proposed travel dates and which packages or activities you would like to do and we will do our very best to accommodate you!
Before you arrive, we’ll send you a couple of forms. The first is a shopping list. We give you a long list of common requirements like jam, milk, ham, cheese and eggs, each with a tick box next to it. Simply indicate the items you’d like us to buy on your behalf and we’ll do your shopping before you arrive. When you check in, your cupboards will be fully stocked and your fridge will be full of lovely local produce, cold beers and whatever goodies your hearts desire. We don’t charge for this service – we’ll simply add the cost of the goods to your end of stay bill.
Activities and Events
When you arrive in your chalet, you will find a guide to the week’s activities and events on the dining table based on what you have booked up with us and what is going on. These suggestions vary from week-to-week, depending on what’s happening and the season. Everything is totally optional but at very least it will give you some ideas. You can see an example of our weekly activity programme here.
Herby’s our resident ski guide and Jodi is a professionally trained mountain sports guide. Both are qualified skiing instructors and can usually be found either skiing down a mountain or trekking up it. When it comes to exploring Lungau’s Southern Alps, we run regular guided tours – on skis and snow shoes in the winter and on foot or bike in the summer. These are totally free of charge to our guests – all part of the service – and may even include a few unofficial tips on technique for those who want them… Just don’t tell Gabi in the ski school!
We also have agreements with a number of local hotels, so we can offer swimming, fitness classes and treatments.
The chalets are nestled beneath our local mountain, Speiereck – the highest skiable peak in the region. We are just 2 minutes walk from the local inn and only a 5-minute walk from the main ski lift. A further 10 minutes stroll in the same direction and you’ll be in the picturesque town of St. Michael, where you’ll find the local shops, banks, ski schools, bars and restaurants. If you’re feeling lazy or want to zip across to the next ski area, there’s a free ski bus stop at the end of our road.
For those among you who enjoy exploring, St Martin is located within easy striking distance of numerous places of interest.
There’s plenty of culture to see, both locally and further afield in Salzburg, and the whole Lungau region is bursting with natural beauty, Austrian charm and opportunities to do things you simply won’t find anywhere else.
We have two historic castles on our doorstep – Mauterndorf Castle and the stunning Schloß Moosham – and we’re a stone’s throw from the beautiful countryside of Salzkammergut. We’re also only an hour or so away from Austria’s borders with northern Italy and Slovenia.
Whatever your intentions though, most of our lovely guests find themselves staying close to home. The Lungau region has a lot to offer, both culturally and in terms of scenery. In fact, the Lungau region was recently recognised by UNESCO as Austria’s most recent official Biosphere Park.
