Luxury Penthouse holiday apartment in Rauris

Fantastic apartment with everything you might need for self catering. Lovely village too.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely week in Andrew's apartment. Very high spec. Any questions we had were answered immediately and accommodation info was very good. Made good use of the spa and pool after skiing too. The agent was reliable and attentive. We found the skiing perfect for beginners with very well organised lessons. The slopes were a bit limited for good intermediate skiers but as a family resort it is perfect. We were happy to do the same runs all week because everything else was so good. On the last night we went to a restaurant called Bodenhaus at the end of the valley (taken up the mountain on a tractor!) and then tobogganed down to our car after the meal. A great way to end a fantastic week.

Prachtig comfortabel huis. Met alle gemakken voorzien. Nadeel dat je veel trappen moet op en af lope

  • 4 of 5

Een prachtig verblijf gehad. Heel fijn huis.

Van alle gemakken voorzien.

Wel kleine pannen voor een groter gezelschap. Mocht wel wat royaler. Superrrrrrr fijn dat je zo dicht bij de skipiste zit. Al met al een dikke prima.

Very nice penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

It's a very nice penthouse for 6 and easy to walk to the slopes of the Rauris mountains. It's well furnitured with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A heated, lockable, common ski-room for drying the shoes and other things. The apartment is all over equiped with floorheating and you can perfectly dry jackets, handshoes or gloves in the bathroom.

The kitchen is nice for cooking but if you don't want it, there are some good restaurants in a five-minute walk, even as the supermarket.

Very nice house to stay and go out for walking, biking and for sightseeing. Very near the slopes for skiïng and snowboarding but the skilifts/cabines at the groundstation are basic. Everybody must go up in a small cabin so it can take a while... Stay at the upper-slopes, there are newer cabins. Coming from the middlestation to the groundstation is not optimal via narrow slopes, sometimes without fences so it's better to use the cabin.

But...the house is absolute fantastic and the pool is a nice present for the kids! No more wishes.

Thanks for staying in the house.

Best regards, Erik

Wunderschönes Appartment, direkt am Skilift und sehr freundlicher Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind mit einer Gruppe von 7 Freunden über Silvester für eine Woche nach Rauris gefahren. Im Vorfeld war der Kontakt zu Andrew (auf englisch) extrem positiv. Er antwortete immer umgehend auf Fragen und war sehr hilfsbereit.

Vor Ort war dann alles wie auf den Fotos: ein großes, sehr helles Apartment mit 3 Schlafzimmern, einen großen Wohn- und Essbereich sowie 2 großen Badezimmern (eins mit Badewanne). Die Wohnung ist das Penthouse von einem von vielen Häusern im "Bungalow-Dorf". Es gab einen Wellness Bereich (Pool, Sauna, Dampfbad) und ein Fitnessstudio, das von allen Bewohnern der Häuser benutzt werden konnte und sehr gepflegt und schön war. Außerdem gab es eine Tiefgarage zum abstellen der Autos. Abends haben wir immer in der geräumigen Küche gekocht, der nächste Supermarkt zum einkaufen war fußläufig. Die 7. Person musste bei und auf der Couch im Wohnzimmer schlafen, vermutlich würden wir empfehlen eher zu 6. in das Apartment zu reisen, damit jeder ein eigenes Zimmer hat.

Super gut gefiel uns auch die Anbindung ans Skigebiet. Die Gondel ist 5 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt, Geschäfte zum ausleihen von Ski ebenso. Das Skigebiet ist sehr schön und bietet einen guten mix aus roten und blauen Pisten. Wir hatten sowohl Anfänger als auch Fortgeschrittene Fahrer dabei und für beide eigenete sich das Skigebiet sehr gut. Das einzige womit man nicht rechnen sollte ist besonders viel Apres Ski und Party - dies begrenzte sich auf zwei Lokale direkt am Lift (den Schirm und eine andere Hütte). Nach Rauris reisen vor allem Familien mit Kindern, weshalb wir wenig Personen in unserem Alter (Mitte 20) getroffen haben.

Unterm Strich können wir das Apartment von Andrew und Rauris als Skiregion sehr weiterempfehlen! Wir können uns sehr gut vorstellen wieder zu kommen :-).

About Andrew North

I am a Quantity Surveyor who lives in Yorkshire England

Andrew North purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Andrew North chose Rauris

We purchased the apartment in 2008 after visiting this area for many years with our children. It is a beautiful area and we love it so much. Every time we return we always comment as we drive up the valley we are so pleased we bought in Rauris

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very contemporary yet maintains the traditional look of Austrian mountain villages. Inside it has very unique features with sloping ceilings that give this already large apartment a very spacious feel with large traditional timber beams a feature in the roof. It has the wow factor yet you feel very comfortable as soon as you sit down
