Why Joe Robinson chose SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental
I first visited Austria in 1982 and fell in love with the country. I discovered Going in 1989, specifically visiting this very property, as it was owned by the family of my oldest school friend (who still lives in the village and helps out when needed). I have always loved the house and the unique and calm atmosphere. I had the opportunity to buy it in 2000 and have spent the time since gradually renovating and improving it. This is our family's true home, we just can't live here because work and education keeps us all in England. We really hope that you enjoy being at 'Dorf30' as much as we do.
What makes this Chalet unique
I think that this is the most perfect location in the Tyrollean alps! Walk out of the front door in summer and you have a million miles of perfect walks and bike rides, whilst in winter you have 250kms of fabulous skiing that starts just across the road. The best restaurants in the area are a 2 minute walk away and the village is beautiful, unspoilt and very traditional - and likely to stay so as there is such a strong community spirit here that keeps Going special. Right behind the house there are the most incredibly beautiful mountains anywhere - the Wilder Kaiser range is just breathtaking.

Great house in lovely location
We've just returned from a lovely week in Going staying in this wonderful house. There were 6 of us, 4 adults & 2 kids, and we all had plenty of room to roll around. Loved the games room and hot tub.
My husband would pop out to get us fresh bread each morning from the bakery and any bits needed from the supermarket and we ate in 2 local restaurants during the week, all just a walk down the road.
Lots to do in the area; we visited the local swimming lake 3 out of our 7 days as it was so much for all and had a couple of trips up the mountains.
Joe provided plenty of information for us to find our way around the house and area and Pat was on hand locally for any help/advise.
All in all we had a great stay and would recommend this property to anyone!
Easy checkin process due to detailed outline provided by owner. Good location to various lifts, nice attractions for children nearby, going lake is loads of fun for children less than 10.
Restaurant recommendations from owner are spot-on the local bakery is a must and St Johann has some nice kids indoor activities for rainy days.
Only cons are low door frame heights upstairs, so if you are tall like us you leave with several bruises on your forehead.
Overall very nice experiences.
Great location and amazing house
We used this house with 2 families, each with 2 children. There was more than enough room to accommodate us and plenty of facilities to keep us going for the duration of our stay. The house itself is situated it a small town with tourist information just around the corner and a few restaurants dotted around. The information pack you receive from Joe is very informative and will guide you through your stay either in summer or winter. Great home and location, would definitely recommend it.
Lovely traditional family chalet in heart of Tyrol
Fantastic location in heart of Tyrol near to mountains and swimming lake. 2 mins walk to a shop. Lovely family house in good condition! Comfy beds and cosy kitchen!
We have stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 children under 10. We had two other families join us over the week.
We were all blow away by the house and the area.
The house is really comfortable, it accommodated us with room to spare and there were many games and other things to entertain.
Fortunately for us the weather was amazing and so we spent most of our time outside.
Our days were spent at one of the many Lake pools - in Ellmau or Going or hiking up a mountain.
The lifts are open and at the top are wonderful kid friendly activity places with play parks and trails. The kids walked whilst being entertained. The parents walked and chatted and admired the view.
The food was good, the people hospitable and we were completely taken - we will be back.
fantastic family property - so relaxing
We as a family have been visiting the area for years and this is the first time renting a chalet and going self catering. Would STRONGLY recommend it and this property. Ideally placed for facilities , the chalet is ideal for 2 or 3 families to use. It is excellently appointed and it is obvious that the owner is investing in continually refurbishing.
Have booked again for next year and would strongly advise others to consider
Going is a beautiful and unspoilt village, nestled underneath a breathtaking mountain range - the Wilden Kaiser. It is a peaceful, picturesque and tranquil village with a few bars and some very good restaurants. Nearby Ellmau provides the party atmosphere if required and Kitzbuhel and St Johann are just a 10 minute drive away.
Golf: There are at least 14 golf courses within 1 hours drive of the house. The nearest is in Ellmau, which includes a driving range, walkable from the house or a 2 minute drive.
Ski: Ski Welt is Austria's largest inter-linked ski area, which includes Going, Ellmau, Soll, Itter, Westendorf & Brixen. Over 250km of skiing and 100 lifts. Most of the area is well served by cannon for artificial snow coverage and it all starts right across the road from our house! You would be hard pressed to find a better ski house location in this area.
Serious ski-safari folk can also get a lift pass to include the whole Kitzbuhel ski region as well, accessible by car, bus or interlinked ski-lift.
