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.
Jenny purchased this chalet in 2014
Why Jenny chose Walchen
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
