About Matthew and Caroline Wethey

Having been to Rauris and Zell many times in the past, we were overjoyed to have found this stunning apartment for sale. Having viewed it at New Year, we fell in love with Avamaria 7 immediately and completed the purchase in February 2014

Rauris is a beautiful unspoilt friendly village with wonderful mountain air and picturesque views. We love the atmosphere in the centre, and the facilities available at the resort.

We will be regularly visiting with our children, who thoroughly enjoy both the winter and summer activities that the area has to offer.

Matthew and Caroline Wethey purchased this apartment in 2014

Lovely apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this apartment, the bifolding doors offered a fab view from the comfortable living room. The apartment had everything needed for our stay and was very clean. Our only critisisum was the fridge, it was very tired and needs replacing. We found some great places to eat just a short walk from the apartment in the lovely village and everyone was friendly. Our grateful thanks to a very efficient Caitlin who met us on arrival and departure.

Superb apartment in a good ski resort

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is superb and was easily big enough for our party of 5 adults and 3 children. We cooked in several times and the facilties were more than adequate. Although there is no lift in the apartments it was no great problem walking up and the views are worth it. Underground allocated parking was a bonus.

The shops and restaurants are a short walk away,as are the slopes. We hired a ski locker at the main lift which made it even easier to walk to and from the apartment. The skiing is good and suited all our mixed ability group. The local instructors were very good, even getting one of the girls on her second ski holiday down the black run! I would recommend this resort and apartment to anyone looking for a good family ski holiday.

Excellent apartment in a really picturesque Austrian alpine village.

Perfect for families both young and old. Ski lift is just A very short walk away. Skiing perfect for beginners and intermediates, but limited for the powder monkeys!

Apartment has all the utilities you'd need and is surprisingly spacious - it comfortably accommodated grown-up family of 8.

The adorable village with all necessaryamenities is a 5 minute walk away.

We will return next year.
