Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The apartment has a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and also a balcony off. There is a large lounge/dining room with a further double sofa bed and a TV/DVD player. This room has a large terrace and both the terrace and balcony have wonderful views over the surrounding mountains and ski area. There is also a second smaller bedroom with bunk beds and a wardrobe. The kitchen area is fully equipped and has a dishwasher, microwave, oven & ceramic hob, fridge, freezer etc and with a dining table that pulls out to accommodate 6 people. The apartment also offers a second bathroom with bath and hand shower over.
Situated in a traditional Austrian building in the centre of Hinterthal, the nearest lift is a few steps from the front door giving access to the Sonnleiten lift with a blue progression run which also links with the main lift out of the village giving access to miles of perfect tree lined slopes covering a huge area. It is only 5 minutes walk to the bunny slope, ski school and hire shops etc, via a little bridge over the mountain stream. Whilst central, it is still very quiet at night and even with the windows open you only hear the stream babbling along. There is a lovely walk along the stream up to the foot of the mountains with beautiful views and woodland.
The apartment building also has laundry and drying facilities and a heated ski and boot room.
Hinterthal has a good selection of restaurants and bars and there is a bank with cash dispensers at the foot of the village. The ski hire shop opposite Haus Salzburg sells basic groceries. The 'Umberella Bar' at the bottom of the black run in the base of the village is always a good place to stop and meet friends after a good days skiing and the last run down the Hochmais black piste. Very lively, with a smattering of Oompah music here and there for the Austrian touch. Most hotels also have friendly and welcoming bars and restaurants to fall into at the end of a long day. The Steinbock hotel serves fabulous food and is situated at the beginning of the village near the Hochmais Chair lift. The Urslauerhof- hotel and spa at the foot of the village on the right has a large terrace to enjoy a beer in the sunshine, offers mainly traditional fayre. Haus Salzburg is a British family run traditional Austrian chalet hotel with a friendly atmosphere and good food. Amelias Corner is an ultra modern bar/restaurant with a varied menu to cater for all tastes. The legendary 'Alm Bar' is situated in the center of the village at the foot of the nursery slope- by far the liveliest place to be in Hinterthal if you fancy a good knees up, with bands playing regularly and music into the early hours. The Simmonhof Hotel is directly across the road from Haus Sonnleiten serving traditional Austrian food and drink. Prices overall are relatively reasonable for a ski resort. You can buy your lift pass at Sportmayer shop and ski school in the centre of the village, or at the Hochmaisbahn station at the bottom of the Hochmais lift.
Hinterthal is a fabulous village, very up and coming with a lot to offer in both summer and winter. All lift systems have recently been updated and service around 150km of mountain range but without the queues. Lakes and waterfalls are in equal abundance. There is a large lido pool, golf course and tennis courts at Maria Alm a short drive away so always plenty to do. You can find Thai, Chinese or McDonalds in Saalfelden, the nearest town as well as great supermarkets and clothes shops, 20 mins drive (or bus) away. There are a good cross section of ski runs into the village and cater for all abilities.
Flights from the UK are only around 1.5 hours and transfers around an hour, so relatively little travelling time.

About this location
The Salzburg Region
The apartment is located in the picturesque Austrian mountain village of Hinterthal with 150km of skiing from the village. The ski area runs between the Arberg, Hintermoos, Hinterthal, Dienten and Muhlbach and has great uncrowded skiing. Hinterthal has three ski lifts leaving the village, accessing over 150km of skiing, plus its own nursery slope and its own ski school making it a good place to go for beginners but also offering good on and off piste opportunities for more advanced skiiers. The nearest slopes are just a few metres from the building and the nursery slope a 5 minute walk away. There is a lift pass hut in the centre of the village in front of the apartment block. There has recently been a huge overhall of the regions lift systems with an investement of over 50 million euros to update all of the old ski lifts, including some stunning new mountain restaurants with menu's to match! Albeit a small village, Hinterthal has a good selection of restaurants and bars with plenty of 'apres ski' atmosphere! Other ski areas are also within easy driving distance, Bad Gastein 40mins and Saalbach 20mins.
In the summer we enjoy temperatures from 25 - 30 degrees which gives you the perfect temperature to enjoy a game of golf in the many local courses, climbing and walking and mountain biking on the many tracks through the mountain forests.
You can visit Salzburg for the day and enjoy the city with its link to the Sound of Music. There are local waterfalls in Krimmel, Werfen Castle where the film Where Eagles Dare was filmed. Visit the Eagles Nest in nearby Germany.
Ski lifts run throughout the summer offering plenty of walking opportunities for keen hikers.
For families there is a wonderful outdoor swimming pool in nearby Maria Alm, or a large lake at Zell am See for swimming, sailing and cycling, around 20mins drive.
The beautiful Church at Maria Alm reputedly has the tallest spire in Austria and is well worth a visit to experience it's elaborate interior.

"Bijou with a view"
We stayed at Sonnleiten House over Christmas week 2014 for a skiing holiday. Our party comprised myself and my husband, son and married student daughter and son-in-law (5 adults). Hintherthal is a bea… More
We're sorry that your stay in Hinterthal wasn't as enjoyable as expected. Snow is usually plentiful for the Christmas period, we usually go ourselves that week and have never had a lack of snow, although there seems to have been a distinct shortage throughout Europe this year unfortunately, not just in Austria.
With regards to your sleeping arrangements, I would have recommended that you use the main bedroom, the double sofa bed (which takes less than a minute to fold away in the morning) and the bunk room rather than the futon, that way you wouldn't have needed to disturb your son.
We have never had a problem with low water pressure in the main bathroom before, (unless there was a problem in the main block for some reason), we will indeed investigate the situation although our New Year week guests haven't reported a drop in water pressure.
The main shop in the village did close recently due to new management takeover. We always advise guests to pick up supplies en-route where possible or we can get our housekeeper to pick up a few supplies for a small charge if necessary and have them ready when you collect the key. We are hoping that the shop will be open again soon and apologise for the momentary inconvenience. The nearest supermarket is Maria Alm, 10-15 mins by bus if you don't want to drive.
We endeavour to make our guests stay as pleasurable and hassle free as possible so take any comments or issues seriously and act on them where possible. Thank you for your comments, we will take them into consideration.
Kindest regards to you.

A wonderful apartment with great facilities in a great location: what more could you sensibly ask for? A short walk - or a very short drive - takes you directly to the ski lift (heated, no less) and … More
