Wonderful stay in Das Schmiedhaus.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very cozy and comfortable.

We were group of friends and families with children.

The house is very suitable for large groups of people,

the dining room is spacious and nice.

The kitchens are very well equipped and nicely organized.

The house is very warm and there is hot water for everyone.

There is ski room in the yard with heating for ski boots, very comfortable.

The ski bus is not faraway, around 3-4 min walk with the children, and ski bus is every 15 minutes in the morning and afternoon ( for both ski zones Kaprun and Zell am see )

One of big advantages of the house is the great number of rooms, they are not big, but there is a lot of rooms for everyone to be in his private space.

The other big advantage are the owners - very decent people. The communication is prompt and clear, plus the owners are always ready to cooperate you

in case of some question or issue.

Definitely would recommend the house to my friends.

Size matters :D great for big families

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Schmiedhaus. It was a cosy house with many rooms. now that big rooms but cosy and cute. We were 8 adults with 2 kids. we were very comfortable. Cooked our meals with great pleasure and enjoyed eating them all together around the big dinner table. We traveled with cars and the transportation to the ski lifts was very easy

Rustig gelegen huis in geweldige omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Met een groep van 11 volwassenen en 2 kinderen hebben we een mooie vakantie beleefd in das Alte Schmiedhaus. Deze prachtige knusse chalet is gelegen in het zeer rustige Fürth met mooi uitzicht op de alpen met de Kitzsteinhorn. Je hebt ook helemaal geen last van de drukke baan naar Zell am See, zelfs niet als je buiten zit. Piesendorf en Kaprun liggen op wandelafstand, zelfs Zell am See ligt vlakbij en is eventueel met de bus te bereiken (bushalte op 200m).

Dankzij de grote woonkamer boven met groot salon en grote tafel konden we 's avonds nog lang nagenieten. Ook de sanitaire voorzieningen zijn prima.

Een minpuntje is wel de beperkte opbergruimte in sommige kamers, maar als je geen slapers hebt op de zolderverdieping is dit een ruime bergplaats.

Een aanrader en zeker een plaats om terug te komen.

Wintervakantie met een gouden randje...

  • 5 of 5

Wij hadden de beschikking over de volledige woning, hetgeen gebruikelijk is voor de winterperiode. Das Schmiedhaus is ruim en voorzien van alle gemakken. Vooral de ruime woonkamer is een genot. je kunt lekker samen rond de eettafel zitten of comfortabel aanschuiven in de heerlijke zithoek. Slaapkamers zijn van voldoende grootte en de sanitaire voorzieningen zijn netjes. Het huis staat op een rustige plek in Fürth. Kaprun is loopafstand en voor de wintersporters zijn er ruime mogelijkheden in Kaprun en eventueel Zell am See. Volgend jaar weer.

About Jerry and Els Smith

With our family we travel many times up and down to keep the houses in top shape for you and to offer it to you as we would wish if we rent something. After every winter and summer season, the entire chalet is thoroughly cleaned. Our family consists of two wonderful teenagers. Together with them we enjoy, between the companies, Austrian culture, delicious food Austrian flora and fauna and of course skiing. The diverse environment and pleasant mentality of the local population ensures that it is always nice to come home again. We warmly welcome you and make our home at home your home!

Jerry and Els Smith purchased this house in 2000

Why Jerry and Els Smith chose Piesendorf

Das Schmiedhaus has a rich history. The characteristic chalet radiates cosiness and warmth. In 2000 we stepped into the adventure with only a roof and wooden exterior walls without windows. In two years time the chalet has been built up by us with our own hands. The division could therefore be determined by ourselves. We wish no one a sofa bed. Therefore maybe cozy bedrooms, but everyone has one. Admit it, after a day of intensive activity, it's nice to have a good time with a book in bed, right? The location, centrally and on the southhang and also with snow loads easily accessible also contributed to the purchase. After 16 years the chalet has been thoroughly renovated in what it is today. We proudly present you the Schmiedhaus das. From mid-December to mid-April, Schmiedhaus is rented as a chalet. In the other seasons it is possible to book an apartment from 4 persons. We look forward to your visit and welcome to the Schmiedhaus!

What makes this house unique

What is the charm of das Schmiedhaus.

The characteristic appearance, the location, the beautiful never-boring view of Kaprun, the Kitzsteinhorn with its eternal snow, the babbling brook, the cows that in the summer trudge through the village to the alpine pasture or back to the stable, when the sun shines you can almost always sit outside (lies in the lee), the peace but still close to all facilities, close to the different pistes, public transport (train and bus). In the house it is the atmosphere-defining wooden windows, the wooden beams in the living room, the cozy interior etc. The layout is very well thought out and the maximum comfort has been removed. Guests indicate that they feel at home as soon as they step inside. The chalet really embraces you as a warm jacket. Book and experience it yourself!
