We hope that you will enjoy the apartment as much as we all do.

We rediscovered Austria about three, four years ago, after a gap of around twenty years. We were under the false impression that Austria was expensive, very formal and staid.

After the twenty year gap we found that we were entirely wrong, that Austria was much cheaper to holiday in than many other European countries that we had previously visited. We found the people we met were refreshingly informal, very helpful, kind and very trusting.

We enjoyed the skiing in Kaprun and the fact that with the glacier it meant that the skiing was reliable. We loved the lake in Zell am See and the summer activities that it offered. We continue to be impressed with the modern Austrian infrastructure with its road, rail or ski lift networks. We found that the contrast between summer and winter, the mix of mountains, lakes, cities, sports, history and culture suited us all as a family - the scenery was an extra bonus.

As we discovered more about Austria and the area in and around Zell am See, we recorded our news and advise to share with others in our blog where we hope to have captured an essence of the area.

We have still to grasp more of the basics of the German language, but where ever we go in Austria we are made to feel very welcome and at home, indeed many people understand and speak English

We also found that Austria was a great place to relax and recuperate. We are still beginning to grasp the Austrian concept of 'wellness' and the enjoyment of spas. But we were delighted when we found out that a new ninety million Euro spa complex the Tauern Spa World Kaprun was to be built close to the village centre of Kaprun, we have tried to record its development, as it is built, and write articles on the concepts of wellness and spas in another blog.

We recognize that we still have lots to learn about Austria ourselves, we are more than happy to provide further information if requested, but we would encourage you to discover or rediscover Austria for yourselves.

Kind Regards
