Property description

Apartment Waltraud is situated on the second floor of Haus Karlwirt. The accommodation comprises a light, airy living room with a double sofa bed, a comfortable armchair, TV with satellite, bookcase, cupboard, dining table with four chairs and a well equipped kitchen area. A separate bedroom has a comfortable double Austrian style bed, wardrobe and two bedside tables. There is a shower room with a wash basin, and a separate toilet. There is plenty of storage space, with an additional large curtained wardrobe in the entrance hall, a four drawer chest of drawers and a large wet/drying room. There are attractive pictures on the walls throughout the apartment. Free WiFi is provided. An extensive, sunny, south west facing balcony offers magnificent mountain views which can also be enjoyed from the living room and bedroom. The apartment is well insulated and has oil central heating.

Free Summer Cards and a secure parking space are provided.
Superb location: Although a car is recommended, it is very possible to enjoy a holiday in Apartment Waltraud without a car in both summer and winter, as many of our visitors and we ourselves can confirm. Many attractions/activities are within easy walking distance - we are ideally situated for the many and varied delights of the Rittisberg mountain and are surrounded by restaurants and cafes. A fabulous outdoor shop (Ski Willy) is close at hand as is ski hire and Ramsau ski school is 5 minutes walk away. Public transport is very good, with regular buses to Ramsau Ort and Ramsau Kulm, where a wide variety of excellent shops, including 2 supermarkets can be found (the new Spar supermarket in Ramsau Ort is particularly good - we walk down to it, then catch the bus back). The regular bus service also goes to the Dachstein cable car and to Schladming which has excellent shops and a train station offering a direct connection to Salzburg and the airport. Taxis are also easily available and reasonably priced.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in a small village in North Yorkshire - Paul is a practising veterinary surgeon, Judy a retired A&E nurse. Judy worked for a year in a hospital in Innsbruck many years ago and developed a lifelong love of Austria - Paul also loves Austria, having enjoyed many holidays there.

Why the Owner Chose Flachau:
When looking for a property to buy in Austria we were attracted by the Alps in Salzburgerland and Steiermark as these areas are less well known to British tourists (a well kept secret). Firstly, we fell in love with Ramsau am Dachstein which is a beautiful, quiet, spread out village lying high up on a plateau surrounded by beautiful mountains. Walking from our apartment to Ramsau Ort is just magical in all the seasons and the air is incredibly clean and fresh. We need to pack our sunglasses all year round, as the sunshine has an exceptional quality - they call it 'walking on sunshine'. We chose the apartment mainly because of the breathtaking views, and the extensive balcony, but it is also very comfortable and an excellent size for 2 - 4 guests. Haus Karlwirt is a friendly building and in a lovely, quiet, peaceful location, but with easy access to footpaths, buses, shops, Ramsau beach and the Rittisberg. We stay in the apartment as often as we can, so there are many home comforts there which can be enjoyed by our guests.
