About Us

We are a retired lawyer and retired fashion designer in our sixties. When not in Saalbach we live in Warwickshire, England. For 20 years we organised ski chalet parties in many of the major resorts of France, Switzerland and Austria. Ultimately we decided to acquire our own ski apartments in Austria - because we found that we always had much more fun there than in other countries. And it had to be Saalbach, because it is undoubtedly the best all-round ski resort we have ever encountered - whether your priority is the quantity, the quality or the convenience of the skiing, the entertainment value of the apres-ski, the friendly, welcoming atmosphere or the picturesque charm of the surroundings, this wonderful resort really does tick all the boxes!


The Village

The honey-pot village of Saalbach, with its charming village centre, cobbled, pedestrianised streets and ancient onion-domed church, is about 50 miles from the magical "Sound of Music" city of Salzburg. It is approximately 1,000 feet higher than many nearby Austrian ski villages (Zell am See, Kitzbuhel, etc), which makes for an excellent snow record. It is at the hub of the fabulous 270km 'Ski Circus', which also includes the villages of Hinterglemm and Leogang.  

Saalbach is a resort that cries out for you to self-cater: it offers an eclectic array of restaurants, both up the mountain and in the village, catering for all budgets and tastes, and the evening entertainment is legendary! A hotel or chalet would cost you considerably more, and you would miss out on much of the fun. Do it our way - once sampled, you won't want to do it any other way!

There are two handy supermarkets for your breakfast requirements and perhaps for the occasional meal at home accompanied by a bottle of excellent Austrian wine. There are also some really excellent take-aways. Self-catering gives you the flexibility to do what you please when you please.

 


Getting There

Ryanair, British Airways, Flybe, Easyjet and Jet2 (and no doubt others) do cheap flights to Salzburg and Munich - you will be surprised how cheap on some days!
(£1 including taxes and charges seems to be the record lowest!). Flights to Linz are also worth investigating.

For transfers, the holiday-shuttle runs 8 times a day between Salzburg and Munich airports and Saalbach and is pre-bookable on-line at www.holiday-shuttle.at. It is door to door, and normally takes about 1 hour and a quarter. A similar service is provided by other taxi firms, which advertise taxi transfers on the internet.

A private taxi will cost about 150 euros each way per vehicle - worth it for 4 passengers and well worth it for more! And you get to travel in style!

There are regular, inexpensive train and bus services from Salzburg, Linz and Munich airports to Zell am See, 10 miles down the valley, and from there a regular local bus service, or of course a local taxi (35 euros for 4 people).
