Nestled in the centre of Austria's biggest ski area, Ski Amadé, it boasts 840km of ski runs, 278 lifts, a range of pisted skiing to suit all levels, plus some challenging world cup race pistes, numerous off piste and backcountry skiing routes, plus many cross country routes and trails. Flachau was the nominated host resort in Salzburg's recent bid to hold the Winter Olympics proving its Internationally renowned capability as a premium resort. In addition to having excellent snow cover, due to its location in the coldest region in the Alps, it maintains excellent snowmaking facilities and even heated chairlifts! Such is there snow making capability, with no snow on the ground in early November, Flachau confidently stepped in to rescue a World Cup Slalom race from being cancelled due to a lack of snow in the host Finnish resort. Flachau is a top resort when it comes to eating out and nightlife, with live music every night of the ski season in the Musistadl, a very large converted barn. It is not unusual for non-residents to be bussed in for the famous Apres Ski in the Hofstadl. Get there early and grab the table above the bar that serves drinks via cable car! If you want a meal out many of the restaurants closest to the apartment are some of the best including the Hoagasht, which serves modern cuisine in a tradional atmosphere. The food is excellent and the converted cow barn creates a unique atmosphere. The Schusterhausel, a old cobblers house, is great for meat lovers. Pizzas and traditional Austrian Cuisine can be found in the Kaiserstuben which also has a large play room for kids downstairs. For a unique experience, consider taki a taxi up to the Sattelbauer for a traditional Austrian meal, then sledging all the way back to the apartment. There are bars to suit all tastes, from the modern and sophisticated Fire & Ice, through to Ema's the Irish pub, which also incidentally has free wifi. In the non-skiing months, there are lots of outdoor activities, including golf, mini golf, horse riding, zorbing, summer bobsleigh, tennis, white water rafting, rock climbing, downhill mountiain biking, segway tours, and not forgetting all the hiking & biking trails.

The appartment is in a convenient location, less than 45 minutes by car from Salzburg Airport. Spar shop and supermarket in Flachau was very handy, and we were able to explore the area which is absolutely stunning!! There's not a lot open/going on in Flachau out of season, but this didn't dampen our enjoyment at all. Would thoroughly recommend this property, and the pool was brilliant-very convenient! Thanks for a great week!
