Experience ski chalets in Austria
The Austrian Alps are home to spectacular skiing and hiking, as well as Gross Glockner, Austria’s highest peak.

But winter in Austria is when the countryside really shines. Have cozy meal in a Tyrolean Stuben, wooden parlors found in hotels and restaurants that were traditionally part of old farmhouses in Tirol, or raise a frosty mug in one of Munich’s famous beer halls. From your Austrian Alps vacation rental, access Kitzbuehel, the sports capital in the heart of the Alps. Ski Kitzbühel’s 99 miles of manicured pistes, or boarders can experience the top-notch terrain park. Après-ski is the perfect way to unwind after an exciting day on the slope. Walk back to your Austrian Alps villa rental to warm up with a mug, and marvel at the moon twinkling on the fresh snow.

Full of Baroque age architecture, Salzburg is one of Europe’s premier architectural gems. Austrian Alps vacation rentals brings this enchanted area to life in a storybook setting.
