About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom Modern Open-Plan Apartment With Mountain Views

Situated in the centre of quaint St. Johann in Tirol, our apartment has breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains and village. It's an easy walk to everything and you'll have a wonderful time in both winter and summer.

The highlight of the apartment is a large, open-plan kitchen/dining/living area. Panoramic windows offer breathtaking views of the mountains, fill the apartment with light and open out onto a roof terrace.

The layout creates a wonderful sense of space and privacy. The dining table seats up to 8. You can comfortably sleep 6 in 3 separate bedrooms, all with top quality mattresses. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed and full en-suite bathroom (bath/shower & WC). Bedroom 2 has a king bed and small balcony. Bedroom 3 is smaller with two single beds. Bedrooms 2 & 3 share a full bathroom (shower, bath, & WC) and an separate WC in the hallway.

The bedrooms have excellent sound insulation. Even when we're there with the children, friends and grandparents, there's enough space for everyone. We put the kids to bed early and enjoy long evening dinners or movies without disturbing them.

The Location:

1. You can walk to everything! Walk to the ski area in 10 mins. Walk to the supermarkets, village center, restaurants, sport shops, boutiques, train station, church in 5 mins. Walk to the swimming pool and ice skating rink in 15 mins. The apartment is only 120 m from the train station. If you want, you could park your car in our safe underground garage and not use it for the whole vacation. Convenient train access to Kitzbuhel (7 mins), Innsbruck (1 hr 30 mins), Salzburg (2 hrs 20 mins), and Munich (2 hrs 30 mins).

2. St. Johann is a winter sports paradise with great skiing in the resort itself (see http://www.snowmagazine.com/ski-resort-guide/1006-austria/1608-st-johann-in-tirol) but 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. Nearby ski areas include Kitzbuhel, Pastun, Steinplatz, and Scheffau. In January, experience the excitement of World Cup skiing in the chic medieval town of Kitzbuhel, home of the famous Downhill Hahnenkamm race.

Enjoy 170 km of groomed cross-country ski trails for both skating and langlauf. It's all free with no ski passes required. Walk to the nearest trail in 5 mins or drive to main stadium in 5 mins where there is free parking and inexpensive equipment rental. You can ski for hours, stopping at local inns for lunch or apfelstrudel and gluhwein.

3. Other activities in winter and summer include:

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 St. Johann in Tirol

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

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.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in St.Johan, the apartment had the most beautiful view of the city and mountains, and you could even sit outside on the private deck and enjoy it.

We went there primarily for skiing, and it was perfect for this, as you just had a short 5 min walk trough the city to the main gondola lift.After skiing it was so nice to get back to the apartment for a warm bath in the tub or a card game on the deck or in the living room, where you could enjoy the sunset over the mountains.

Close by was a really nice italian restaurant that Terri recommended, called La Rustica. They served the best pizzas and risottos!

The apartment has a very nice atmosphere, and everything was clean and in good order. Kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of space. There was loads of fun activities in walking distance including; skiing (slalom and cross country), spa and swimming, hiking, ice skating, shopping and a farmers market on fridays. If you want a fun night out, we can highly recommend Max's pub on wednesday where they had kareoke.

The alpine ski area was a really nice, lots of pists, stunning views and not to crowded.

Finally Terri was a really nice host that helped us with everything we needed to know and had lots of good tips on restaurants and the area in general.

Definitely staying here again!

An Alpine adventure on your doorstep!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment. Fabulous views and centrally located. The area is paradise for outdoor activities. Fantastic walking & mountain bike trails all well signposted and graded for difficulty. St Johan has a great outdoor/indoor swimming pool. Beautiful swimming lakes near by, facilities so clean & not very busy in the summer. Friendly locals. Only drawback was road noise in front bedroom is loud. I bought ear plugs! Overall one of our favourite ever holiday. Fresh air waterfalls, climbing. All wonderful.

Fantastic place-what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Terri's apartment is just perfect for a family vacation. Right in the heart of town, with amazing views of both Wilder Kaiser and Kitzbuhler Horn from both inside and outside! The apartment had everything we needed and we loved it! St Johann is full of character and less busy than Kitzbuhel, an excellent base to explore the mountains, Salzburg and Bavaria. Our vacation will stay in our hearts a long time after we return home! Thanks Terri for allowing us to experience the Tirol from your penthouse!

An amazing location, with wonderful views and well positioned for many tourist attractions.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday, very comfortable accommodation and a great location with shops and restaurants. We had three teenagers with us and there was not one moan. The views were impressive over the mountains and it was such a treat to wake up to them every morning. The swimming pool was great and there were plenty of shops for self catering if you wish. We had an issue whilst staying and Terri contacted us immediately (although this was out of her control) and she dealt with it. Perfect location. We had a really lovely holiday thanks Terri.
