The Austrian Alps region
The Austrian Alpine scenery looks just like it should. In winter, the snow-covered peaks and alpine plateaus provide a playground for winter sports. In summer the meadows are filled with colourful wild flowers while the gentle sound of cow bells fills the air.
The weather is often lovely in every season. Winter is simply snowing or sunny. Spring often brings warm sunshine and summer can be scorching hot. That said, mountain weather is notoriously changeable and cold weather or heavy rain could happen in any season, so waterproofs should be packed.
The Tirolean people are friendly and helpful. The food is plentiful and reasonable priced and the wine is excellent.
The Seefelder plateau offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activity. It is one of the top places in the world for cross-country skiing. Seefeld is a great resort for family ski holidays. Snow shoeing, winter walking, dog sledding, ice climbing etc etc are all alternatives. In summer the paths are perfect for running, walking and mountain biking.
Climbing, swimming in the lakes and paragliding are just a few of the other activites on offer in the area.

"Superb spacious, clean, light and stylish apartment. Good location."
This was just what we needed. We were fed up with cramped ski apartments and this huge, light, airy and spacious apartment was great. The whole apartment has been recently refurbished to a very good standard and it's well equipped. The thermal and sound insulation make this very warm and peaceful. In fact we mostly didn't need the heating on and often left windows open overnight for a nice warm night combined with great fresh air. The mountain views from the large lounge window are lovely too.
The owner was unbelievably helpful, bending over backwards to answer our questions and provide leaflets, both before and during our stay.
The nearby supermarket (closed Sun) is big, well stocked with absolutely everything you'd need and much much cheaper than we were expecting. Beer was especially cheap and good. Fresh veg is a bit thin on the ground though.
The man who delivers bread daily (not Sun) to your door is great to. Just leave a sign out at night with your order and It's there before you get up.
We went to a couple of the restaurants in Leutasch. Food's good, prices are reasonable, much cheaper than French resorts and service much better.
We were there for alpine (downhill) skiing and although it took a bit of planning, we didn't need a car to either get there or to go skiing daily to Seefeld.
The bus stop for the 4184 or 4186 buses to Seefeld and the two ski areas are a 5 min walk away. They are very prompt and reliable, but are only every hour or so. The times work well for the start and end of ski school, which is at Rosshutte (larger ski area). Just be sure which bus you want to get onto at the end of the day and ask the driver, as they arn't very clear and the same route number goes to three diff places.
The 2 hr train journey from Munich was easy, with trains every 10 mins from the airport to the centre and then every hour to Mittenwald about 5 miles away. For some of them you need to change at Garmish but journey time is the same. For the direct ones, be careful to get on the front half of the train, as it splits in Garmish. Mittenwald in on the border, but still in Germany. The Bayern ticket can be bought and printed online www.bahn.de beforehand and is €23 for a day pass, plus €4 per extra adult family member. So a family's day pass is only €27 ! We then got a taxi to the apartment from the taxi rank outside at €25 but there is also the 4186 bus, five times a day www.vt.at €2 each, which would drop you an easy 5 mins walk away.
We returned via Innsbruck which was even easier. The train from Seefeld (the same train that comes from Munich and stops at Mittenwald), is every hour and takes half an hour to Innsbruck centre €13 family ticket. The views en-route are simply stunning. We left all our luggage in the cheap lockers at Innsbruck station and had a great few hours looking around. Then it's a 16 min bus ride on route F, four times an hour out to the airport €5.
I would recommend this apartment for anyone skiing in Seefeld. Without a car I recommend hiring your skis and storage (€25ea per week) from Sailer Sport, which is at the bottom of the Rosshutte, next to the bus droop off and ski school meeting point. It's not the cheapest but is most convenient.
We'll be going again.

"great area - lots of variety"
My (adult) son & i visited Weidach on a cycling holiday. The area is great with lots of different things to do. The owners were most helpful with suggestions of rides and things to-do. the road riding and mountain biking were fantastic within the environs of the apartment. We also walked to a mountain hut for lunch. Great weather. The apartment has everything we needed for a comfortable stay - we only cooked once - the local restaurants tempted us too often (weidachstube is superb!). The free wifi proved very useful for planning purposes and the owners let us use the garage to store the bikes. I would unconditionally recommend this apartment/area.

"Tranquility in idyllic surroundings."
The LEUTASCH area is totally unspoiled 7 the apartment (Happy Mountains) in WEIDACH was very comfortable. Our hostess, Emily was welcoming & very helpful. All possible amenities were included. Excellent supermarket 5 mins walk away & a great choice of restaurants in the village & the surroundidng area. The scenery is stupendous, with a bewildering choice of walks of all standards of ease, or difficulty.

"In vacanza come a casa!"
Siamo una famiglia composta da 2 adulti e 2 bambini di 5 e 2 anni.
L'appartamento è pulito e spazioso, ben soleggiato. Le camere da letto hanno spazi generosi ed i letti sono comodi. Per il bambino più piccolo c'erano in dotazione il lettino con le sponde, il seggiolone e la vaschetta da inserire nella doccia per il bagnetto. Inoltre in cucina si possono trovare i piattini di plastica e le posate adatte ai più piccoli.
La zona giorno è generosa e c'è molto spazio in cui i bambini possono giocare. L'arredamento è nuovo e completo (sarebbe utile un mobile dispensa in cucina o in soggiorno per mettere la spesa alimentare).
L'appartamento è in posizione strategica: in 5 minuti a piedi si raggiunge il centro del paese con tutte le comodità (supermercato, parco giochi, fermata dell'autobus, banca, negozi di souvenir, noleggio bici, ect…)
La proprietaria Emily è sempre gentile e disponibile a qualsiasi richiesta.
Sicuramente un posto da consigliare a tutti.

"A very good place to stay with very good surroundings"
What more could you ask for ?
The owners are very friendly, helpful and keep a very clean apartment with everything that was needed.
This was my second stay and still I did not have enough time to see and go to all around, watch this space am back in October .
Plenty of walking paths and nearby places to visit, am recommending it to my friends and can not wait for my next visit.
Thanks Steve and Emily for making it a great time

"Lovely first floor apartment with stunning views in ideal location"
The owner, Emily was very helpful, providing useful information about the area.
Clean, spacious and well presented accomodation within easy walking distance of a well stocked supermarket, bars and restaurant. The kitchen facilities combined with good quality local drinks enabled us to cook proper meals when we felt like relaxing at home in the evening and the flat was always warm with a cosy feel. Perfect for a couple, friends or family with children.
A bonus to be able to walk from the house on the flat along a beautiful, clear river (with a lovely play area for young children, 5 minutes from the house) or enjoy more strenuous climbs on well marked paths for spectacular panoramic views. We really enjoyed the variety of alpine flowers and trees that can be seen at this time of year.
For a bit of culture, a car or spectacular train journey to Innsbruck is well worth the trip!
