|Further details outdoors|
Chalet Gretl has private off street parking, 3 balconies, sun terrace and garden.
Chalet Gretl was bought by a family who got tired of the typical high prices & low standards of holiday hotels, chalets and apartments.
We are all keen skiers (downhill and xcountry), road and mountain bikers, runners, skaters and walkers. Any details you require regarding your particular activity, ski conditions etc we will do our best to provide.
Our live in Chalet Hosts will welcome you to the chalet, look after you throughout your stay and provide you with local information.
Our aim is to make your holiday as comfortable, pleasurable and easy as possible, allowing you to just relax and enjoy yourselves, knowing that at the end of a tough day on the slopes, (or golf course or bike trails etc), you are coming back to good food and drink in your own luxuriously appointed chalet.
We love it here, I'm sure you will too.
The Austrian Alps region
For those of you who have only ever skied or holidayed in France, Austria will be a revelation.
Zell am See/Kaprun is a paradise for skiers and boarders of all ages, sizes and abilities, with 132 km of downhill runs on the 'Shmittenhohe' at Zell & the 'Kitzsteinhorn' glacier at nearby Kaprun.
For the more experienced skiier there are over 40km of black runs, while for the less daring there are easy blues and a mix of easy & more challenging reds to help build your skills.
Boarders are spoilt for choice with huge, wide pistes, loads of off-piste opportunities, natural halfpipes and the new 30000m2 'Snowpark'. Cross Country fans have over 200km of trails available including a 5km night trail.
And if you tire of all this, there are over 15 other resorts within just 30km of the Chalet.
But probably the best thing about being here is the sheer beauty and character of the place. Traditional Austrian towns and villages are a delight in Winter or Summer, the scenery is just stunning and the people are great.
There is so much to do here and it's such a beautiful place to be.
