Kaprun. The mountain resort with something for everyone

Kaprun the mountain resort with something for everyone

If you're looking for a mountain holiday destination that offers:

  • Snow-sure skiing/boarding for all abilities
  • Year round non-ski activities for all ages
  • Spacious, comfortable, family-friendly accommodation
  • Value for money
  • Flexible holiday duration and arrival and departure times
  • Easy accessibility
  • Beautiful scenery
  • Traditional and friendly mountain village

…then you're not alone - and we believe we've found the answer, self-catering in Kaprun, Austria.

"We" (being the extended "Smith" and "Truman" family, currently ranging in age from a few months to 70 years old and with varying levels of energy and agility but sharing a common love of the mountains) have similarly discerning ski holiday requirements, and have searched long and hard for the perfect solution.

Personal experience

Between the two "clans", and going as far back as the early 1970s, we have personal experience of working and holidaying in over 40 Alpine resort destinations in France, Switzerland and Austria. And over that time we have experienced the full spectrum of accommodation type (hotel, chalet, B&B, hostel, self-catering etc).

We've had some great experiences and some shockingly bad ones and reckon we're as good a judge as any of Alpine holidays - for families in particular. So, the purpose of this website is to share with you our knowledge and our excitement at having found what we truly believe is the perfect mountain holiday for everyone.

In fact we liked Kaprun so much that we ended up acquiring our own holiday house to allow us to share the area's benefits with our families, friends and other mountain lovers. You'll find details of our self-catering accommodation available for rent on this website.

We hope you too can share our discovery.
