To interfere with the not (zer), there are no ugly shower cabins in the rooms, only sink and otherwise 3 well appointed bathrooms. In my house you will find: peace, space, exquisite furnishings, unique atmosphere!

What you will not find: Bathrooms in the rooms, technical gadgets of all kinds, functional technology of the 21 (s o..). Century (TV, phone, fax, etc. in every room) .As a tribute to the modern times, there are of course free WiFi and a large flat screen with DVD player!

more details or Notes: In the BP gas station about 200m away almost every forgotten foods can depending on the season to 20:00 respectively. 21:00 rebuy. Special recommendation: order the number of rolls for breakfast the night before, - are baked right on time!

Best restaurant for miles around (two 'hoods' in the rest.-führern!): Hotel Adler in St. G.

Solid Austrian. Kitchen with my friend and neighbor Ewald Tschanhenz from the hotel Vermala (50m), which is an expert in matters Paragliding: more time European champion! In addition, Mayor of St. G. and the surrounding communities and access authorized to the best blueberry brandy from western Austria! In the season has opened his bar until the last go (very cozy!)

Personal recommendation: Everything that has to do with sports (equipment): Harry (opposite the Hotel Adler, s o..) is the best! Quality, price, service, - for many years he gets from my guests (and me!) Top marks!

One last comment: I urge you to understand that both at check-in as at check-out a mandatory building inspection with my property manager Giovanni takes place, which is my right hand on site. He has any authority to regulate any damage with those responsible in my mind. Completely excluded is a departure without consensual contact with him, be it ever justified as early or with any emergencies!

A wonderful stay in a beautiful house with a lot of atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved this house. It has so much atmosphere. Each of its generous rooms has its own character. We were a group of nine people and there was plenty of space for us, even without using the upper floor. There is a lovely terrace where you can have breakfast in the morning and a beautiful garden with old trees where you can sit or have a barbecue in summer. The owner, Mister Hundsdörfer, for whom it is important to keep the authentic character of the house intact, was very welcoming, open and caring. He did everything he could, so that we could feel comfortable and at home. We recommend this special place warmly!

Three times Axel's house

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Axel's house and we all were fully satisfied. The house has it's soul and spending "apres ski" time is as pleasent as skiing itself.

Nice, big rooms , each one with own character, plenty of books (owner is an exhibitor) simply magic. I recommend for group of friends , families (grandparents and grandchildreen incl.)

If you come to this house you will fall in love with it. Besides there are beautifull surroudings and perfect ski arena with many ski routs for skilled and beginners.

Tolles Haus in toller Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus mit seinen vielen Räumen bietet für jeden eine Rückzugsmöglichkeit. Der Sitzplatz und die Terrasse laden zum Verweilen ein. Kurzum gesagt ein Bijou für Leute mit dem Wunsch nach Erholung. Wir waren 11 Motorradfahrerinnen und -fahrer und das Haus war schlicht sensationell.

Haus mit pesönlicher Note

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist mit seiner persönlichen Einrichtung ein guter Platz sich schnell "Zuhause" zu fühlen. Die geräumige Haus hat uns (4 Familien) den notwendigen Raum gegeben, von "Gemeinsamkeit bis sich zurückziehen und entspannen"

Wir werden uns gerne wieder dort einfinden!

Gefiel allen sehr gut. Tolles Haus zum wohlfühlen. Sehr detailverliebte Einrichtung

  • 5 of 5

Hat allen sehr gut gefallen. Auch im Sommer eine gute Basis um das Montafon zu erkunden. Tolles Haus, es gibt überall etwas zu entdecken. Sehr detailverliebte Einrichtung von Sesseln, Lampen, altes Spielzeug usw. fast ein kleines Museum. Die Abendsonne auf dem vorderen Balkon mit einen kühlen Bier oder Wein war der Hammer. Ebenso kann man gemütliche Abende auf der Terasse zB. Mit Grillen verbringen.

Axel ist Hausbesitzer und Giovanni organisiert alles wass du braucht. Es war sehr gut! Wir danken Axel und Giovanni und kommen zurück in 2018. Lieber gehen wir auch in Februar 2017 aber die Woche ist nicht mehr frei.

Silvretta Nova
Car: recommended

The house is surrounded by meadows, in a loose scattered settlement on the slightly raised Montafon valley floor of the north side, half-way between St. Gallenkirch and Gortipohl and the village.

The valley station of the chairlift Garfrescha (the oldest of three tributaries to the huge Silvretta Nova) located in a gentle downward slope about 350m away (with good snow conditions ski from the house and directly go to the valley station!). The two fast gondolas St. Gallenkirch or Gaschurn are about 2km or 3km (few Minunten by car). To Hochjochbahn in Schruns and Golm Bahn in Tschagguns by car about 10 minutes (from Dec. 2011 new gondola to Hochjochmassiv from the valley St. Gallenkirch, skiers can then the two most attractive resorts of the Montafon in a day car lot combine). During the season, run quickly shuttle buses btw. The div. Valley. Great fun, especially for children: during the ski season is the Garfrescha lift several times a week until 22:00 for tobogganing (sled in the house) in operation, to a complete departure from the Garfrescha mountain station is illuminated to the valley (beautiful sight from the balcony of the house!)Attention skiers: a few minutes to groomed on the valley floor, many kilometers long trail! The mountain panorama in all directions beautifully and with the almost 3000m high Vallüla that forms the dramatic valley head to the east, particularly impressive. For non-skiers there since doorstep plenty of opportunities for walking, z. B. to a waterfall (about 20min), which forms fairytale ice sculptures on cold days and fabulous photo opportunity, on the valley floor of the river Ill along a Wildschweingehege, via the so-called meadow to St. Gallenkirch, - it is not boring! In the car you are in a quarter of an hour on the Bartholomäberg high above the main village Schruns (best shopping opportunities - Hemingway fell in love with the twenties in the pretty town and skifahrend and write whole months spent there!). On sunny days the Bartholomäberg, with its flat roads and the longest hours of sunshine throughout the Montafon offers ideal for easy walks, breathtaking views of the widely spread valley and the opposite rocky massifs of Rätikon or Hochjoch. After a nice walk you hold then stop at the historic inn 'mill' and can be an original Montafoner barley soup taste (supposedly the best in the valley ...). Or the homemade apple pie, no less famous! In winter only accessible by train from Partenen the Bielerhöhe (Silvretta Lake) because the Silvretta High Alpine Road is closed (highly recommended, even the ride is exciting: after a trip on the gondola's go with a special minibus for minutes at a rapid drive through an extremely narrow tunnel before you can go back at the bottom of the reservoirs into the open air - care with a tendency to claustrophobia) Now for the summer: a whole (migrant) life will not be enough to exploit the wealth of opportunities, which alone provides the Montafon, from the neighboring valleys (Klostertal, Paznauntal, Great Walser Valley) and other landscape or urban highlights to mention (the close Bodensee -. eg Tags Bregenz Festival, Island City Lindau--, the near Arlberg and behind quickly achievable Innsbruck, the location just behind Feldkirch Principality of Liechtenstein, with its unique art museum, the beautiful, historic Feldkirch with its typical colonnades etc. pp.). The ultimate goal of all well-toned and crush resistant migratory birds is of course always the nearby Piz Buin, where veritable here mountaineering comes into play, not least vast stocks of sunscreen same name belong to the backpack! Large selection of swimming pools the premium class in the immediate vicinity (eg. B. 'Mountain Beach Gaschurn', with slides, pools, beach volleyball court, etc.). Magnificent mountain lakes in the high valleys on every side! On hot days, a veritable balm: the circular basin eroded the already mentioned, 20min distant waterfall. Whom it is tiresome to. After extensive sunbathing in the garden or on the div to seek terraces and balconies to refreshment purposes there, failing that, take the garden hose on hand (Pool plans wg. unfavorable topographic conditions for the time being on ice).
