This private house in the Tyrolean Alps, is located in the lake Achensee region in the village Achenkirch. It offers you a stunning nature and calm enviroment and allows for relaxation from daily stress and complete regeneration. Usually used privately by a family, this house is open for you to rent since May 2013. A mix of traditional design, blended with modern and high quality interior, this house offers you everything you need for a perfect holiday.

Based on our experience, we think you will be particularly happy with your holidays, if you are a family with children and/or couples/friends wanting to enjoy the many possibilities for sports/hiking/skiing during all seasons and the great nature in this lovely valley in the mountains with the fjord-like lake Achensee. For this purpose we spend our holidays since many years in Achenkirch. Through the fresh mountain air you will be particularly tired during the first days of your stay and sleep a bit more than usually (an experience we have made since the beginning) - but it is exactly this fact that well help you to recover completely from the stress of the daily live and regain energy and finish your holidays with a feeling of being completely relaxed and regenerated.


The HOUSE is the most southern of a combination of three terraced houses, with a private garden surrounding the house at three sides. Once in the house, it feels like a "free standing,/ non-terraced house", there is no noise from the neighbours.

On the GROUND FLOOR, there is the main bedroom with a double bed and direct access to a large bathroom with separate shower and bath tub.

On the FIRST FLOOR, there is the second bedroom with a double bed (these beds can be separeted in two single beds, please ask before booking) and great views on the mountains directly from your bed. Besides the bedroom there is a second bathroom with a toilet and a shower. On the same floor are as well an open kitchen with a dining room, a fire place and direct access to the garden, terrace and barbecue.

On the UPPER FLOOR there is a large living room with a second fire place, comfortable sofas, the television and access to the balcony with chairs to relax in the sun and enjoy the views.

The lifts, slopes, ski-rental and ski school are approx. 0.5 miles away from the house and accessible within walking distance (but attention, including a steep hill on which the house is located) or by a very short car ride for higher convenience (especially for children with ski boots, a car may be needed).

The Tirol region

The Austrian Alps region is well known for its GLACIERS and IMPRESSIVE MOUNTAIN RANGES, with some of the world's best skiing resorts as well as endless hiking and sports opportunities. The highest mountain is the Großglockner (3798m altitude) The Glacier ski resort "Hintertuxer" provides 365 days skiing/year up to an altitude of 3250 meters and is located 45miles / 73km from Privathaus Achensee.


Within the Austrian Alps region, Privathaus Achensee is located in West Tyrol at the beautiful lake "Achensee". It is Tyrol's largest lake, 5.6 miles / 9km long and embedded in stunning mountain scenery, Due to the steep mountains around, it is almost like a Fjord. Its major assets are an impressive landscape, as well as endless opportunities for sports, activities and relaxation..


Several cities close enough for day visits from the house in the region are worth a visit: Innsbruck (34 miles), Munich (91 miles) and Salzburg (108 miles),


The house is located in Achenkirch, a lovely Tyrolean style village, which is a perfect location for your holidays during summer, autumn, spring and winter. Four lovely villages surround tyrols largest lake: "Lake Achensee". It is 5.6 miiles long and embedded in a stunning mountain scenery. The following film gives some impressions about the Lake Achensee region.

- Video from the region:

- Video from the 18 hole golf course (12 miles/19km from the house):


- A short film with impressions of Achenkirch during winter time: .

- The region lake Achensee has more than 70 miles cross country skiing tracks, the access to 18 miles cross country tracks around the village Achenkirch is less than 500 yards away from the house.

- Skiing: The 'Christlum' ski resort is the largest ski resort in the lake Achensee area. It offers 7 lifts, 16 miles / 27km of slopes between 950 and 1800 meters, of which 6km are rated as "easy", 16km as "intermediate" and 5km as "difficult". The lifts, slopes, ski-rental and ski school are approx. 800 meters (0.5 miles) away from the house and accesible within walking distance - but attention, including a very steep hill on which the house is located - with ski boots difficult, especially for children. So a short car ride might be your choice.



Privathaus Achenkirch is the perfect place for you, whether you are expert, intermediate or beginner in cross country skiing. There is such a lage offer and so attractive tracks in the whole region, that you will enjoy a weeks cross country skiing (and more) without "getting" bored of the same tracks. If you want mainly skating (not classic) tracks, the choice of tracks is a bit lower (maybe too low for skating experts).


Privathaus Achenkirch is a perfect place for you. If you take a ski pass for more than 3 days, consider taking a ski pass not only for the ski resort Christlum, but the whole "Achensee Region". There are two further resorts close by - smaller than Christlum (so maybe too small if you are an extreme/expert skiier) - but with an amazing scenery and views on the lake. Busses (free) run between the three resorts.


You should consider taking the region ski pass for several days. Skiing a few days at Christlum ski resort + maybe a morning / afternoon in the two other ski resorts at lake Achensee. For a few other days, we suggest you move to the Zillertal, reachable by car - with EXCELLENT skiing for experts. That results in an exciting skiing holiday!


Privathaus Achensee is a perfect location. There are so many opportunities with cross country skiing, down hill skiing, snow shoe walking, ski touring, snow kiting, winter walks, sledging, etc. that you have found your perfect place, for expert skiiers as well as beginners.

"Quiet, spacious place with magnificent view!"

The house is very comfortably equipped, spacious with beautiful view of mountains and lake. The owners were staying in the next house and were very nice and helpful. The closest skiing resort is suitable for moderate skiers, those more advanced should drive about 30 minutes further.

Thank you for taking the time to write our first review on Tripadvisor. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and it was a great pleasure having you as guests in our family owned holiday house.
