Chalet in Piesendorf- Walchen, Zell am See, Salzburg, Austria - Beautiful location looking out to glacier with and wonderful mature garden private garden
About Sam Lewin
We are a large family. As a boy I fell in love with Austria and skiing. On my first school trip at the age of 11, I cried when it was time to get on the bus and come home! I started dry slope Racing at an early age and then went on to become a ski instructor so I could get out into the mountains. I and my children are also a keen freestyle snowboarders.; his is ideal as the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier has a brilliant freestyle park with one of the best half pipes in Europe. My wife is not as keen on skiing as my self and the children but she loves the sun. So the summers in Austria are perfect, temperatures can go as high. We all love Austria for many reason. The people are great and of course the breath taking majestic sceneries. The food and the beer are up there on the appreciation list.
Sam Lewin purchased this Chalet in 2014
Why Sam Lewin chose Piesendorf
We bought this house because the village of Piesendorf in our minds has it all. This is our second holiday home investment in Piesendorf. The Quiet location is close to some of the best skiing in the Alps. Zell am see , Kaprun and the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier- guaranteed skiing even if the alps are having a bad winter for snow at 3000m. Kitzbuhel/mittersil lifts- 30mins, Bad Gatstein- 40 mins, Salbach- 30 mins, Maria Alm (3 valleys- 30mims) , Weissee Glasier - 20 mins. Plus many other small resorts close by. We sometimes visit the Hintertux glacier in August to snowboard or ski, this is really great; this is about 1hr 30 mins away. The Kitzstinhorn glacier is open to the end of July usually. Great time to ski and snowboard as uaslly is it very quite after the racers have left at 12 noon.
What makes this Chalet unique
Of course skiing is top on the list for us but there are many brilliant adventures to be had, whether you are walker enjoying the beautiful national park of Glaciers, drinking water lakes, huge spectacular waterfalls, like Krimel 300th biggest in the world! Swimming in the lakes. The saying the "Grass is not greener on the other side" does not apply for Austria, as it really is. The air is so clean, and in the summer you smell the sweat smell of the grass that has just been cut, and continues to be cut all summer. The cold fresh air with smell of wood burning from houses stoves in the Winter. There is an excellent 36 hole Golf course close by. rapid rides, mountain biking, summer skiing, excellent open air heated pool, skate board/ BMX park. Small train to take you into Zell am See etc

Very filthy house and unsuitable for human stay, the owner not willing to invest for improvements
This is an email sent to the owner on the second day of my stay,
Regret to inform you that we are experiencing a terrible stay in your house since our arrival. The house in indescribable situation to suite human living standard due to various reason from gathering all kind of wild insects from spiders , flys to mesquites.
Nevertheless the house smells just like old warehouse or store yards. The towels are stained and not cleaned to suite tenants. It’s not hygiene for human/ tourist living.
Am will aware of this area and I’ve been visiting for the last 8 years and never find close bad as your house.
We spend the first two days arranging the house for temporary arrangement to have peaceful sleep, but this is seems endless. Neither my kids nor I would stay in such, we jump and break our sleep because one of the above reason .
The WiFi is also hardly grabbed in the pool room only and no signal on the bedrooms.
We have agreed to pay your high asking rate anticipating clean and neat house as you described in your advertisement/add
Am trying to meet your representative but due to her work hours we could not meet so far.
I will not definitely extend my stay and I have to renegotiate the rate and have a compensation .
Am attaching some of the pics for your ready reference of what found and looking forward to your positive reply soon.
