Stunning natural, organic produce, breathtakingly quiet valleys, stunning mountain summits and all the outdoor adventures & nature you could hope for…welcome to St Martin Chalets, a small group of 10 authentic Austrian luxury chalets surrounded by the towering peaks of Austria’s Southern Alps in the Lungau UNESCO Biosphere Reserve!
Your British host, Jodi Venner, and her family pride themselves on crafting luxury, bespoke Austrian chalet holidays to your requirements, but without the price tag (chalet prices here).
For foodies and outdoor lovers, our Austrian Mountain Life package is for you, with lashings of indulgence thanks to visits to some of the best Austrian Alms, which are high-lying farms producing their own cheese (see photo above!), milk, butter and other fantastic Austrian produce. The Alm restaurants dotted around the Alps also serve up fab food and drink with views to match, as you can see from this photo!
Don’t worry though, you’ll be able to walk it all off with plenty of alpine walking and nordic walking excursions with your guide…so eat away.
Experience ‘The Lungau’ with us
Whether you build your own holiday or opt for one of our amazing winter or summer packages (hover over the buttons at the top of this page for specific holiday interests) you’ll love the way of life out here.
Far from mass holiday resorts, Lungau is a working region where tourism is an added bonus rather than the main source of income for the townspeople, villages and businesses. This means no inflated pricing and amazingly friendly locals who are accommodating and full of energy and enthusiasm for their home region. The majority also speak English fluently so you’ll have no trouble settling in, with a little help from us here at SMC!
So if you’re after an Austrian food and drink holiday like no other; a snowy Winter wonderland escape with loved ones or summertime outdoor adventures for all ages and abilities we’re never short of ideas so let us create your ultimate Austrian Alpine holiday!
Fab Family Fun
Check out our family holiday page, with ideas and inspiration for families seeking a fun-packed Austrian holiday, where we have endless activities that’ll keep both little & big kids alike more than entertained (we guarantee all the exercise will mean they sleep in too!)
A year-round Austrian Adventure Playground…what are you waiting for?!
Spring, summer and autumn in Austria and the Lungau mean stunning nature at its best (eyes right for stunning Autumn scenes!), with lashings of cultural events and of course amazingly impressive wildlife thrown in for good measure, such as our Austrian Red Deer Rut holiday packages each September & October.
Not only this but we have every conceivable sport, outdoor adventure and activity for any age, complete with guest-only gym, sauna and e-bikes!
Guests also love using our road-legal golf buggy to pop over to St Michael Um Lungau for a quick supermarket shop, or our free sets of golf clubs to play on one of 8 golf courses in the region including a championship course less than 2km away. Or just relax in our guest-only sauna or for more indulgence head to the nearby Lungau Hapimag Hotel for a massage or Spa treatment…lovely!
During winter we offer everything from skiing to snow shoeing and night time tobogganing (plus ice driving!). Cross country skiing too for you hardy types or an overnight snow hole adventure with Herby, our resident mountain goat and mountain rescue team leader plus Jimbo the mountain dog!
For a snapshot of the typical activities that come as standard during any stay with us, download our typical Activity Programme (winter example) here, much of which is free for our guests during their stay.
Food and drink to really dine for!
Just picture yourself sitting at 2000 metres, overlooking valleys and mountains filled with Autumn colours while indulging in truly wonderful home-made cheeses and cured meats. Or how about a dollop of hand-churned butter melting into freshly baked bread with a glass of Austrian wine or schnapps close to hand!? Sounds nice doesn’t it!
Any foodie venturing into ‘the Lungau’ will be greeted by Alpine peaks, fertile valleys and crystal clear lakes under sapphire skies. But the real gold is dotted across the foothills and high valleys of this pristine region…welcome to Lungau’s small hillside farms known as ‘Alms’. Their inhabitants and livestock harvest and harness this wonderful nature to craft Austria’s most authentic food and drink. Not just delicious produce though, the Lungau region is known across Europe for its sustainable organic approach to farming and its UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status, so you know that anything you eat is pure and has not compromised the wonderful surrounding Austrian alpine hills and landscapes.

We’d love you to experience our part of the world so any questions or if you just want to plan through a possible Alpine trip call me (Jodi) or send an email via our contact form. I’ll get back to you once I’m down off the mountain or back at my desk from lighting guest’s fires in their chalets!
