Condo/Apartment
Our lovely, modern apartment occupies a prime position in a traditional Austrian building, located at the entrance to the beautiful & unspoilt village of Hinterthal. Providing an ideal base for both Summer & Winter holidays, it has fantastic dual aspect views of the Hochmais slope, the main ski run to & from the village and also to the Hochkonig (High King) mountain range. The six-man heated/covered chair, the main lift of the village, is barely 100 metres walk from the apartment, so great in the mornings & after a long day on the slopes!

No queuing for the ski bus or need to get in a car - the skiing is literally on your doorstep! Over 50 million Euros have recently been invested in the new local lift system making it one of Austria's up & coming ski regions. There is over 120 km of varied skiing to suit all abilities with breathtaking scenery. In the Summer/Autumn season the area is a walker/biker/hiker's paradise. The apartment has three good size bedrooms. The first has a large, typically Austrian-style, double bed, consisting of two single mattresses, plenty of storage & a spectacular view. The second has a double bed and the third contains two single beds. All rooms are spacious with ample storage space. The open plan living area encompasses a high spec kitchen (newly fitted in 2012). The dining area (seats 6 people) and comfortable lounge with doors out onto the balcony make the most of the wonderful views. The modern facilities like wide screen smart TV and WIFI add to the new modern feel of the accommodation. The bathroom has a bath with powerful shower over & there is a separate separate WC & large wash basin. Ski storage and a separate boot drying room are situated in the basement along with table tennis for guest use. There is also access to a sauna in an adjacent building available for a small fee (2 mins walk from the apartment). The village has plenty of superb restaurants and bars & prices both on the mountain & in the village are very reasonable. There is an ATM at the bank directly opposite the apartment. Local Hotels offer full spa & treatment facilities to non-residents should you wish to pamper yourself and all the main supermarkets & shops can be found in nearby Maria Alm (6 kilometres) or Saalfelden (9 kilometres).More

Great 3 bedroom apartment, ideally positioned for easy access to the slopes
Excellent apartment, just a 3 minute walk to the ski lift (chair) which takes you straight up to the mountains. Clean, with endless hot water and its own washing machine and dryer, this is a great choice for a family ski holiday. We were 5 people and it never felt cramped. Kitchen is very well equipped. All in all a great choice.

Excellent position, light and well equipped apartment
This apartment has a lovely position overlooking the pistes and conveniently situated in Hinterthal. It is well equipped, light and comfortable. We were able to take advantage of a family lift pass enabling 2 of us to ski and alternate with another 2 looking after our 1 year old which was a great plus for family skiing. We enjoyed the wide selection of mountain restaurants and the village bars/cafes. A disadvantage of Hinterthal is the lack of a shop, especially after a flight delay on Saturday and shops closed on Sundays. Luckily it was possible to eat out. Our thanks to Claudia’s daughters for kindly babysitting so we could go out together in an evening- much appreciated.

Ideal apartment in beautiful quiet village
A very comfortable apartment with stunning views of the Steinernen Meer mountains. Great walks (or skiing) right outside. Charming little village with a couple of good restaurants. Further amenities and shops are in Maria Alm just 8 km away, and the whole area is really beautiful.

A perfect homebase for skiing in a winter wonderland
A highly recommendable apartment: very clean, excellently equipped with stunning views. Very efficient and easy-going communication with its owner. Thanks David! The Hochkönig area with its 32 km of well-prepared slopes is perfect for a winter holiday, even more so as there are very scenic footwalks in the Hinthertal valley. We'll certainly come again.

About the neighborhood

 The Hochkoenig "High king" ski area has a fantastic snow record and incorporates the villages of Maria Alm, Dienten, Hinterthal, Hintermoos & Mulbach. Hinterthal is a great family ski resort with very few queues & a good choice of restaurants & apres ski. Our apartment is only 1m from the Hochmais heated, six man ski lift which means you have 150kms of runs into pretty villages with breathtaking scenery on your doorstep. The area featured in the 'Daily Mail Ski & Snowboard magazine' receiving excellent reviews and referred to as "Austrias best kept secret". With 52 easy runs, 83 intermediate and 15 difficult plus 4 ski parks and plenty of off piste tree skiing & back bowls there is something to test all levels of skiers/ boarders. Ski schools locally are excellent. Along with skiing (day & night) in the winter the area offers tobogganing,cross country skiing and sleigh rides. When you need resting & refuelling, there are 37 mountain restaurants offering great quality local dishes at reasonable prices. Should you want to venture further afield, however, your ski pass covers the whole of the Ski Armade region! In addition to the obvious winter appeal, this is a fantastic area to visit in Summer. The scenery is simply stunning and with temperatures reaching 30 degrees during the day it is a haven for all who love the great outdoors. Maria Alm is a 10 minute drive away & offers the Urslautal championship golf course, tennis and a wonderful outdoor lido. Well marked walking trails mean you can cover most of the area on foot or by bike & if you want more of an adrenaline rush the bike parks nearby offer much more of a challenge! Hinterthal is a small, typically Austrian village. It is quiet and scenically situated village with plenty of facilities. There is a small supermarket for daily shopping a large children's play area and a ski school. Anyone wanting to taste real, typically Austrian atmosphere, has come to the right place. Locals preserve customs & traditions which makes this a very special place to visit. Hinterthal is about 1 hour's drive from Salzburg & just under 2 hours from Munich - there are excellent & regular bus services all around the region & train services to Saalfeden,the nearest town, which is only kilometres away.
Getting around
There is a wonderful & varied choice of walks & hikes directly from the apartment. You can also get the bus further afield as the bus stop is directly outside the apartment. Zell am See is only 35 mins away by road. Mountain bikes (electric & non-electric) can be hired locally to enrich your enjoyment of this beautiful area.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
The nearest airport is Salzburg (1hour approx). Innsbruck and Munich airports ( approx 2 hrs) Local transport links are excellent getting from the airports to Hinterthal by public or private transport very straightforward.
