Location description from owner

The Tirol region

The Austrian Alps region is well known for its GLACIERS and IMPRESSIVE MOUNTAIN RANGES, with some of the world's best skiing resorts as well as endless hiking and sports opportunities. The highest mountain is the Großglockner (3798m altitude) The Glacier ski resort "Hintertuxer" provides 365 days skiing/year up to an altitude of 3250 meters and is located 45miles / 73km from Privathaus Achensee.

THE LAKE ACHENSEE REGION:

Within the Austrian Alps region, Privathaus Achensee is located in West Tyrol at the beautiful lake "Achensee". It is Tyrol's largest lake, 5.6 miles / 9km long and embedded in stunning mountain scenery, Due to the steep mountains around, it is almost like a Fjord. Its major assets are an impressive landscape, as well as endless opportunities for sports, activities and relaxation..

Several cities close enough for day visits from the house in the region are worth a visit: Innsbruck (34 miles), Munich (91 miles) and Salzburg (108 miles),

Achenkirch

The house is located in Achenkirch, a lovely Tyrolean style village, which is a perfect location for your holidays during summer, autumn, spring and winter. Four lovely villages surround tyrols largest lake: "Lake Achensee". It is 5.6 miiles long and embedded in a stunning mountain scenery. The following film gives some impressions about the Lake Achensee region.

- Video from the 18 hole golf course (12 miles/19km from the house): http://youtu.be/xvHRVrZCWwc

WINTER:

- A short film with impressions of Achenkirch during winter time: http://youtu.be/2ApIcGDbOr8 .

- The region lake Achensee has more than 70 miles cross country skiing tracks, the access to 18 miles cross country tracks around the village Achenkirch is less than 500 yards away from the house.

- Skiing: The 'Christlum' ski resort is the largest ski resort in the lake Achensee area. It offers 7 lifts, 16 miles / 27km of slopes between 950 and 1800 meters, of which 6km are rated as "easy", 16km as "intermediate" and 5km as "difficult". The lifts, slopes, ski-rental and ski school are approx. 800 meters (0.5 miles) away from the house and accesible within walking distance - but attention, including a very steep hill on which the house is located - with ski boots difficult, especially for children. So a short car ride might be your choice.

FURTHER COMMENTS ON DOWNHILL AND CROSS COUNTRY SKIING:

1.) CROSS COUNTRY ONLY:

Privathaus Achenkirch is the perfect place for you, whether you are expert, intermediate or beginner in cross country skiing. There is such a lage offer and so attractive tracks in the whole region, that you will enjoy a weeks cross country skiing (and more) without "getting" bored of the same tracks. If you want mainly skating (not classic) tracks, the choice of tracks is a bit lower (maybe too low for skating experts).

2.) DOWNHILL SKIING BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATES AND FAMILIES

Privathaus Achenkirch is a perfect place for you. If you take a ski pass for more than 3 days, consider taking a ski pass not only for the ski resort Christlum, but the whole "Achensee Region". There are two further resorts close by - smaller than Christlum (so maybe too small if you are an extreme/expert skiier) - but with an amazing scenery and views on the lake. Busses (free) run between the three resorts.

3.) EXPERTS / EXTREME SKIIERS

You should consider taking the region ski pass for several days. Skiing a few days at Christlum ski resort + maybe a morning / afternoon in the two other ski resorts at lake Achensee. For a few other days, we suggest you move to the Zillertal, reachable by car - with EXCELLENT skiing for experts. That results in an exciting skiing holiday!

4.) MIXTURE OF ALL WINTER SPORTS

Privathaus Achensee is a perfect location. There are so many opportunities with cross country skiing, down hill skiing, snow shoe walking, ski touring, snow kiting, winter walks, sledging, etc. that you have found your perfect place, for expert skiiers as well as beginners.

“Quiet, spacious place with magnificent view!”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2014

The house is very comfortably equipped, spacious with beautiful view of mountains and lake. The owners were staying in the next house and were very nice and helpful. The closest skiing resort is suitable for moderate skiers, those more advanced should drive about 30 minutes further.

Thank you for taking the time to write our first review on Tripadvisor. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and it was a great pleasure having you as guests in our family owned holiday house.
