6 bedroom (13 bed) chalet near Kitzbuhel in the Tyrol, great for skiing or hiking.

The Area
Access to skiing in both Kitzbuhel (over 60 lifts) and St Johann (smaller and lower key) and also a ski school and nursery slopes on the other side of the village itself. There are cross-country ski tracks nearby and a great night lit toboggan run which comes out below the house.

Kitzbuhel is a luxury resort with many amenities, spas, restaurants and nightlife, including a casino.

In summer the house is just above the village’s outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by grass. There are tennis courts for hire. Swimming in nearby lakes is also lovely.

There are well-marked walks in the lower hills behind the house and mountain hiking all around.

The House
A comfortable traditional style chalet, built over 50 years ago by the family who still own it. 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 shower rooms, baby equipment (cots, high chairs, toys), table tennis, sauna, games, wifi. Laundry and drying room. There is a large open plan living room with fireplace and wonderful mountain views, and a cosy breakfast corner off the kitchen.

The house is used by many different families during the year and is set up for that.

A couple lives in a flat attached to the garage who manage the house, clear the snow, clean and will cook a couple of meals and babysit for extra payment if wanted.

Access
Via Munich or Salzburg airports, and hiring a car from there, or there is an airport to house transfer service. Munich is a couple of hours, Salzburg an hour’s drive. You can also get there by train via Paris or Brussels and hire a car in Kitzbuhel.

Availability
New Year is available, usually not in state school holidays, though summer possible.
