Beautiful apartment and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, clean, and very high quality. The views over the valley are fantastic. It's a very short walk to the ski bus and town where you can find restaurants, shops, and a grocery. It's also an easy walk to the ski area.

We had a great time visiting with the owner who has done a lot of the remodeling of the building himself. He also gave us a ride to and from the train station which was very much appreciated.

Communication with the hosts was also great, with very fast response times and very helpful information. Wundershchön!

Amazing 10 day holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (kids ages 7 and 9) stayed here for 10 days and it was terrific! We were looking for a quiet place to relax and be active, and this place was just perfect. We had a car for some of this time so we could drive to Germany to see castles and other places we were interested in visiting. Coming back to this place after a long day on the road felt like home . Later, we just used the train to go to Innsbruck, walked all around town, and rented bikes to ride up and down the river valley (there are bike trails everywhere). Helmut is a great guy and made us feel like we were at home. He even helped me start the car one day after the battery died.

The apartment is well insulated, very spacious, and has great views. The hot tub was a nice feature after long hiking days. We cooked most meals here and found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything we needed. We loved hearing the church bells each day and even went to a local festival which turned out to be an amazing experience. We will definitely return to Zillertal, but only if we can stay at Villa Francesca again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A short pleasant walk from the train station, this apartment feels like home. The pictures and descriptions of other reviewers are exactly what you get. Large enough for our family of 5 to feel like we had lots of room. Beautiful view from the windows. Owner was friendly and helpful. This was a great base for our summer vacation hiking in the mountains. With easy access to the train station and buses, there was no need for a car. Grocery store and bakery along the walk to the train station. Community swimming pool with water slides also a short walk away. Town outdoor concert venue just across the river. Hope to come back and stay here again.

Beautiful villa and view - welcoming host!

  • 5 of 5

I chose Villa Francesca for my honeymoon in August 2010. Helmut, our host and the owner of the villa, recently renovated the place himself and it was clearly a labor of love. The apartments are full of natural wood paneling, imported furniture, and all the comforts of home, to include a fully decked out high-end kitchen, an entertainment room with large screen TV, a hot tub outside with an amazing view of the mountains, and a lily pond that you can wade in if you need to cool off!

The villa is located on the hillside right outside Zell, and it’s elevation is a little higher than the town. So from all three apartments there are spectacular views of the town , the valley, and the mountains. Because the villa was located on the outskirts of town, there was some seclusion, but also easy access to groceries, restaurants, and hiking.

My wife and I spent our days hiking in the surrounding hills (there is a trail that leads right from the villa up to an old shrine and an old chapel), enjoying the hot tub, going para-sailing (!!!), walking through Zell, and visiting old churches. The “Zillertal Bier” brewery, located in Zell, was founded in 1500 AD and the beer is excellent! We also rode a ski lift at the Zillertal Arena, and the ride lasted about 20 minutes!

Helmut and his wife were spectacular hosts - very welcoming, low key, and helpful – all of the activities we did in the valley were recommended by them. Helmut is just simply a good man. He visited with us, shared his schnapps, and even invited us to his birthday party. He is fluent in Spanish and German, but does struggle a bit with English; however, this was not a problem for us.

For an English-speaking American, the area was slightly difficult to navigate. Maps/signs/etc. were only in German, and often of a style that catered to German vacationers (cartoonish hiking maps and the like). We discovered real hiking maps in the Zell gift shops on our last day. Do a bit of homework before you go – there are just too many opportunities you might miss otherwise. That said, the lack of English language material also means that Zell is not very touristy (except that it is clearly a popular German vacation spot).

This is a really wonderful place and I highly recommend it. My wife and I left a piece of our hearts there when we left (it is now the only place in Europe that she is interested in visiting). Thank you, Helmut! I am only sorry that it took me so long to write this review.

Wunderschönes Haus mit tollem Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Gastgeber Helmut hat dieses wunderschöne Haus mit viel Liebe renoviert und zu neuem alten Charme erweckt. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl was auch daran liegt dass alles wirklich super sauber ist. Der Ausblick ist grandios und der Ortskern von Zell am Ziller bequem zu Fuß zu erreichen. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und danken Helmut sehr für seine Gastfreundschaft und die nette Weinverkostung!

Zillertal Arena
Car: not necessary

Our small newly renovated castle 'Villa Francesca' is located in the Zellber region - very peaceful and sunny - somewhat outside of the village. The lively city center of Zell am Ziller has shops, restaurants and the amusement park can be reached in a few minutes walk. From here, a lot of ski buses go to the Zillertal Arena ski region. Many sports are offered in our holiday region: skiing, snowboarding, sledding, cross country skiing, hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, Nordic walking, canyoning, rafting, paragliding, tennis, bowling.

Arrival with a car:

Autobahn A12 - exit Zillertal, follow the B169 and about 22 km to Zell am Ziller, there you can cross the river (Ziller) and then you are already in Zellbergeben.

Arrival with train and bus:

Public transportation - Jenbach station, take a bus or train from the Zillertalbahn (Zillertal transport company), to the train station Zell am Ziller.

Closest airport - Innsbruck

Other Activities: Sledding, snowboarding, snow shoeing, Nordic walking

Ski: The valley station Zillertal Arena is located only 2 km from our house 'Villa Francesca'. The ski bus stop is located nearby. If you want to explore a different ski region in Zillertal or the Zillertal glacier, you can reach these comfortably with the trains from the Zillertal trains and the ski buses.

The Zillertal Arena is the largest ski region in the Zillertal with 165 kilometers of slopes. 51 lifts and rope lifts provide for untroubled skiing pleasure. The very well prepared and -if necessary - fake snow covered slopes are ideal for all skiers, because there is something for everyone: 40 km blue (easy), 114 km red (medium) and 11 km black (difficult/steep) slopes. For snowboarders, there is a hot-zone snow park and a half pipe. 8 ski and snowboard schools with multilingual courses for beginners and advanced. While relaxing at one of the many lodges and snow bars, you can regather your strength and enjoy the wonderful panorama.
