LATEST UPDATE JUNE 2014: UNFORTUNATELY CHALET VISTA IS CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL TO A MAXIMUM OF 3 ADULT GUESTS. THIS IS DUE TO A DISPUTE OVER PARKING RIGHTS WHICH WE HOPE TO RESOLVE SOON. INTERESTED PARTIES PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

Chalet Vista is a stunning 300m2 eco-designed luxury ski chalet with indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and hamman/shower room. Outside, on the balcony, guests will find a large hot tub/Jacuzzi; bubble away with a glass of champagne while enjoying the spectacular view. Newly built on a south-facing position, Chalet Vista enjoys fantastic uninterrupted views over the ski resort of Mayrhofen and the snow-capped mountains beyond. Our chalet occupies one of the sunniest positions available- brunch, lunch, or bask all afternoon in full sun on either of our two large balconies. We are perfectly located in the centre of the Zillertal ski areas, (click "Gallery" and scroll down to see how centrally we're located on the piste maps). In summer there are many exciting leisure pursuits to enjoy nearby too. We are conveniently situated for the nearby airports of Innsbruck (45 min transfer) and Munich (2 hours). Transfers by public transport are possible from both- see "Maps" page for more info. Inside, the house is very spacious and has been stylishly finished with a contemporary luxury theme throughout. The open plan design and the large living areas make it an ideal place to relax and entertain. But tradition hasn't been completely forgotten- the big "kachelofen" (Austrian tiled fireplace) is perfect for warming oneself after a day in the snow. The well equipped kitchen is a hit with chefs, while the whole family will fit around the dining table just a couple of metres away. We have three double bedrooms, a dedicated kids room (beds for up to 3 children) and sleeping options for a further 4 persons. The smallest of the bedrooms is over 10 m2, while the Black and Orange bedrooms are spacious at 16 m2 or greater.

On the ground floor guests enjoy "wellness" facilities better than those found in most of the upmarket hotels locally; the indoor swimming pool is heated daily between 28-30C and incorporates an 'end-less' jet system for swim training (and fun). The infra red sauna will help ease any sore muscles following a full day in the mountains, or guests can enjoy a steam bath in the hamman/shower unit while simultaneously taking a foot massage! The pool/sauna combination is a fantastic way to stretch off and relax- your legs will thank you for it the next morning. The loungers in the pool area allow guests to kick back before dinner; you're welcome to bring drinks down, we provide plastic glasses for your aperitifs.

On the middle floor the lounge is massive and open plan- made with socialising very much in mind. At one end is the kitchen and dining area, at the other the movie theatre. In between is the large black "L" shape sofa; modular in construction so it can form two single beds or a full size double. Memory foam mattress toppers are available if guests wish to sleep here, as we want to be sure you get a great night's sleep- ready to play hard again the next day! Next to this, through the contemporary dividing curtain, is the movie theatre. The sofa here is designed to turn into a full-size sofa bed (measuring 200x160 cm) so guests can sleep here too if they wish. Our audio-visual theatre is new, installed June 2013. Award winning equipment plays Blueray disks/DVDs or streams via Apple TV. Shoot your own ski movies on your iPhone then watch them (via Airplay or USB) that evening with your whole family on our 50 inch plasma TV. Can't bear to miss Emmerdale or need to see the latest BBC/Sky news? No problem, we are linked by satellite to the UK (and some Eu) broadcasters. Or crank up the Yamaha 7.1 amp to whatever tunes you fancy. For bad weather days, or teenagers who have a "Call of Duty" score to settle, we also have the latest X-Box loaded with 87 games. It's a "kinetic" one, so if Aunt Mable and little Jonny (or whoever you have in your party) want to embark upon a Harry Potter adventure before dinner, you can do so at Chalet Vista. You won't be bored!

Also on the middle floor the large family bathroom has a bath big enough for two to relax together; we think it's a great way to unwind. Last but not least on the middle floor is the "Den"; a kids playroom with bunk-beds (sleeping 3 max). This gives the kids their own space, an area optimised as a place for the smaller guests to play and escape from the grown-ups. It has its own TV and Playstation/DVD player, beanbags and toys. Here the small ones can make as much noise as they want! The Den is down the corridor but on the same level as the lounge so parents are still within easy reach. The bunk-beds are full size, measuring 200x90cm, allowing adults to sleep here too if they like/need. The kids will want to know that also on the same level as the Den is the trampoline; they can bounce as long as they like!

On the top floor are the three main bedrooms. Two contain "Austrian Twin" beds. These are high specification doubles with separate mattresses (as is normal in Austria). The remaining bedroom on the top floor contains one UK queen size double bed. All adult bedrooms have mirrors and hair driers. At Chalet Vista we provide guests with the highest thread-count white cotton bedding and towels available, all new this season. Down duvets and large natural soft pillows ensure sweet dreams for the adults, meanwhile kids get quality hollow-fill bedding for practicality. Step out onto the huge balcony (or look through the windows of either the Black or the Orange bedroom) and the view will take your breath away.

As for location, Chalet Vista is about as central to the Zillertal ski area as you can get- see the pictures in the "Gallery" section for our location on the piste maps. There's family skiing at Ramsberg within walking distance, while advanced/expert skiers will find we're ideally placed for them to explore the many surrounding, challenging, ski areas. The area is HUGE- 671km of piste is the same size as France's 3 Valleys. The Tux glacier provides skiing year round (30 minutes drive from us, skiable 365 days a year), while the surrounding mountains are high (67 peaks over 3000m). This means guests can be assured of snow for their holiday, no matter what time of year you want to ski! Mayrhofen has a reputation for lively apres ski- Harakiri and Scotland Yard are our favourites but there's plenty of other bars, restaurants and clubs to keep you entertained until the early hours. But you don't need to venture into town for some cool socialising; "Mountain and Soul" is five minutes walk down the road. Its owner has brought Ibiza to the snow, so expect diverse fusion menus and funky chilled tunes. It's where we go when we fancy a night out.

Most visitors come to Mayrhofen for snow sports in winter, although there's also a wide range of exciting outdoor activities in the summer too. Lifts stay open year-round for trekking /mountain biking/paragliding... (the list goes on...) Meanwhile on the valley floor construction of the new golf course at Uderns (10km away) is progressing well; the driving range and golf school are already open, the full 18 hole course will open summer 2014. The Aquapark at Fugen has a wave pool, a 10m whirlpool, and outdoor hot saltwater pool, other pools, saunas, steam rooms and two big spiral slides- the "Black Hole" will get adults' hearts pumping. The kids love it too! Also great for a day off from the slopes are the two toboggan options: The Coaster is a rollercoaster mounted on the slopes located at the bottom of the Zillertal Arena ski area. It runs on rails and operates all year round (beware, it's a super-fast ride if you don't use the brakes to control your speed!) Or, for a more traditional approach, on the hill directly above our property you will find Zillertal's longest "rodlen" (toboggan) track. It's 7km long, floodlit at night, and a massive hit with the kids. Will you have the energy to keep up? We reckon Chalet Vista is ideally located for guest to enjoy pretty much every conceivable mountain sport or pastime. For more info on activities (with hyperlinks to the organisers/owners/providers), Google mayrhofen.at or chaletvista.

Guests often ask can they ski in/out? To do so is something of a rarity in the Zillertal valley, but the trade off is you stay in a picturesque village with soul, not in a prefab concrete sardine can. From Chalet Vista a short walk of 150m along the small road in front of the house will take you to the nearest meadow (snow covered in winter of course), from which you can ski to the Ramsberg chairlift. Or from roughly the same point one can take the free ski bus to Horberg cable-car (for Penken ski area/Mayrhofen). The owner is an ex-racer and snowboard instructor; Mike offers ski/snowboard guiding on an ad-hoc basis.

Another question often asked is how to get to us. We're only 45 minutes drive from Innsbruck airport or 2 hours from Munich; being located on the airport side of Mayrhofen has the advantage of not getting stuck in traffic on change-over day. For much more information about transfers and our top tips to make your planning easier, see the "location" section of this listing.

In summary, Chalet Vista is one of the best (possibly the best?) rental chalets in the Zillertal area. It is perfectly located in the centre of the surrounding ski areas and convenient for both Innsbruck and Munich airports. We bought the property 14 Dec 2012; everything is brand new and has been designed with luxury, relaxation and socialising very much in mind. Inside guests love the modern, clean, contemporary feel and the upmarket facilities. We hope to welcome you to our fabulous chalet soon.

Chalet Vista: luxury - relaxation - location

About the owner:

Chalet Vista is owned by Mike, a Cathay Pacific jumbo jet pilot. He grew up in the UK but spent seasons in the Alps, ski and snowboard racing during his 20s and 30s. Austria is now his home, as he loves the mountains in both winter and summer. Expect to see him during your time at Chalet Vista; he lives in a staff room on the side of Chalet Vista when the property is rented. This allows contact with guests if needed, as Mike wants to make sure guests are enjoying their stay. He no longer races (the knees don't allow it) but he's happy to ski guide and show guests the best secret spots around the Zillertal. In the summer Mike mountain bikes, paraglides, treks, climbs... the list is long and fun-packed. He's happy to introduce guests to these fantastic activities too.

"Fantastisch"

Super mooi chalet met alle voorzieningen. Gevoel alsof je in je eigen villa zit.
Fantastisch uitzicht op een geweldig skigebied. Contacten met de eigenaar (Mike) verlopen soepel en Mike is aardig en behulpzaam. Zaten er met 10 volwassenen en dat ging prima, maar is naar mijn mening wel het maximum. Chalet Vista is absoluut een aanrader!

"Mein bestes Ski-Opening in Mayrhofen!"

Wir waren mit Freunden dort und im Chalet Vista fehlt es an nichts! Exzellente Lage mit wunderschönem Ausblick ins Tal und einem zu Fuß sehr gut erreichbarem, ausgezeichneten Restaurant, ein großer Pool, Kachelofen und sogar eine kleine Sauna. Es fährt sogar ein Skibus nur unweit des Hauses. Für alle weiteren Dinge rund um den Skiurlaub, erreicht man Mayrhofen bequem in Kürze mit dem Auto. Man kann im Chalet Vista sogar einen gecaterten Aufenthalt buchen, wofür wir uns eventuell das nächstes Mal entscheiden werden.

Unser Fazit: Eine sehr gepflegte Anlage mit sehr vielen Annehmlichkeiten und einem rundherum stimmigen Service und sehr nettem Kontakt.

Hi Lisa,

Good to read you enjoyed your stay. Your comment about my working on the chalet during the day is fair. You visited us just prior to the ski season and at that time there was much to do to prepare the chalet for the main winter rental period. Unfortunately your visit overlapped slightly with some essential tasks. This would not normally be the case and is the main reason for the discounted pre-season rate charged.

As regards the parking, the chalet architect was obliged by planning regulations to include four parking spaces. This is normally sufficient. Thanks for working with me to help reduce the damage to the wall. As you will have noticed, I have already returned your deposit in full.

Thanks for staying at Chalet Vista.

"FANTASTIC LOCATION AND FACILITIES"

My husband and I had a lovely summer stay at Chalet Vista with our three teen kids. It was perfect for us as you could choose to lounge around in the hot tub or pool or read on the terrace with wonderful mountain views, basking in the warm sunshine. Or you could enjoy one of the many outdoor activities (hang gliding, white water rafting, walking, etc) nearby which Mike and Sally, the very hospitable owners, were happy to organise or advise on if needed.
We didn't hire a car and got around fine on foot (though it was a steep 20 minute walk back from the nearest supermarket) and loved going to Mountain and Soul Hotel for its fab food, location and ambience.
All in all, perfect for a family or group holiday with plenty of room to get peaceful moments.
