Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our only regret was that we didn't book our stay for longer, 5 nights was not long enough. The penthouse apartment was perfect in every way. We were able to walk to town for our croissants and enjoy breakfast in the apartment looking out to an amazing view. We would spend the day enjoying adventures coming back to have a wonderful dinner in the apartment with a full kitchen with the sun setting over the mountains.

The apartment is in the best location with markets, restaurants and shops literally one block away. We were able to park our car in the garage and walk to dinners. We loved Terri's recommendation of La Rustica, we would have gone back a second night but they were closed on Monday.

St Johann was exactly what we were looking for, just the right size to enjoy what Austria has to offer, beautiful scenery, friendly people and great food.

Terri and Eva were wonderful in helping with any questions we had about the apartment and area.

We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for comfortable lodging and enjoying what Austria has to offer.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful central ,convenient apartment which is even better than we expected . The main sitting room / kitchen/ dining room has everything you could wish for it is comfortable,warm , well equipped and has the most stunning view . The 3 bedrooms are big with plenty storage and lovely bedding .

Eva was kind enough to get us some shopping for which we were extremely grateful as it was a holiday in Austria the day we arrived ..we also knew that should we need anything further she was on hand to provide any help required.

St Johann is a beautiful town with lots of shops ,restaurants and bars .we travelled with our 2 grown up children and their friend and were joined by an Austrian friend who had never visited st Johann before but vowed to return .

We skied both locally and in Kitzbühel which was easy to reach on the train ..the station is a few minutes walk from the apartment.

We have visited Austria on several occasions and this apartment and area definitely rank among the best ski trips we have taken

Try the Huber beer it was a definite hit !!

We hope to return

Another wonderful stay in St Johann

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all we had hoped for....comfortable, well equipped and in a great location close to the town’s restaurants and the station. The slopes were about a 10 minute walk away. The view from the apartment was spectacular.

A Truly Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed in St Johann many times and stayed in some lovely accomodation, but I have to say that Terri's apartment was simply amazing! From the moment we entered, it felt like home. It is very spacious and has everything you could possibly need for your stay, including laundry facilities and a dishwasher and oven. Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds were so comfy! The icing on the cake though, is the view from the sitting room!!!! I could never get tired of that view. The mountain views changed so much throughout the day, from the golden glow of sunrise and sunset, they echoed the changing weather. We were lucky to see the tops covered in snow when we arrived. After 1 day of rain at the start, we had fantastic sunny days and only 1 day of rain at the end of our holiday, but even on the wet days, it was interesting to see the dark brooding mountains. We were also lucky to see the change in the colour of the trees on the mountainside from green when we arrived, to the most amazing array of autumn colours by the time we left. We are already planning a return to St Johann next year and there is nowhere else that we would stay.

About Terri Denardo

This is the first year we're renting out our beautiful apartment in St. Johann in Tirol. We've had some of our most memorable family holidays here—with friends, parents, grandparents—and are excited that others will now enjoy it too. Both fantastic skiing in the winter a great out door mountain experience in the summer.

Why Terri Denardo chose Sankt Johann

After many years visiting the Kitzbuheler Alps, we felt at home in St. Johann—quaint and traditional but not too touristy. And from the first moment we set foot in the apartment, we fell in love with the view.

What makes this apartment unique

The view is fabulous! And the location in the center of the village is unbeatable. We love leaving the car in the garage and walking everywhere--the bakery, supermarket, ski slopes, and restaurants. We knew we wanted to enjoy the apartment with friends and family so the convenience of being able to walk everywhere makes co-ordinating different needs and skiing styles easy and simple.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Terri,

We really enjoyed our stay in your magnificant appartment. Weather was brilliant and the snow pretty good for the temperatures. So we intend to come back.

Kind regards Michael

St. Johann downhill and cross-country trails
Car: not necessary

We love St. Johann in winter and summer:

- A winter sports paradise with great skiing in the resort itself and with a free and convenient ski bus is part of the largest linked ski area in Austria with access to over 1,000 km of ski pistes. The ski school for children is excellent. Close to Kitzbuhel, Pastun, Steinplatz, and Scheffau.

- In January, experience the excitement of World Cup skiing in the nearby medieval and trendy town of Kitzbuhel, home of the famous World Cup downhill Hahnenkamm races.

- 170 km of groomed cross-country trails (for skating and langlauf). It's all free with no ski passes needed. Ski for hours--from village to village--stopping at great local inns for lunch or apfelstrudel and gluhwein.

- Ice skate at the outdoor rink at the St. Johann recreation center and also indoor in Kitzbuhel.

- The village has a large modern public swimming pool with floor to ceiling windows and sun-loungers looking out onto the mountains. A large indoor pool connects to an outdoor heated spa pool that is fabulous in winter. Also a sauna.

- Wonderful local restaurants, including many with traditional Tyrolean cuisine and also several good Italian restaurants. The outside terrace dining in the sun at the top of the gondola is also excellent.

- One of our favorite activities is the 2.5 km toboggan run down the mountain, also open in the evenings. We've never seen anything like it elsewhere in Europe or North America.

- Every year we go on a magical night-time horse-drawn sleigh ride.

- Other adventure activities include hot air balloon rides and tandem paragliding.

- For a city excursion, drive to Mozart's birthplace, Salzburg, (~ 1 hour) and enjoy classical music concerts and soak up the old-city atmosphere with a bag of hot roasted chestnuts.

In summer:

If you are interested in hiking, swimming in the pool or lakes, playing golf, tennis river rafting or just want to enjoy the village life, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

- Fabulous hiking trails for experienced alpinists and easier alpine meadow hikes for the less energetic hikers who prefer to ride the gondola up; also long walks from village to village, around picturesque and swimming lakes, and along the valley and river.

- 200 km of mountain bike trails and excellent road cycling, hosting the Masters Cycling Classic race every year in August.

- Spend all day swimming and boating at gorgeous Schwarzsee, ideal for families and open-water swimmers.

-The village swimming pool has three large pools suitable for all levels together with a water shoots and fun areas.

-River rafting. Have a new family safe experience, or enjoy an adrenaline shot just 2 kms from St Johann

- Excellent golfing to choose from many 18-hole courses within a short drive. Tennis also a available in the village.
