About Annemarie & Willem de Vries
We are a sports-loving family with 4 grown children and one grandchild (2019) who love to enable our guests to be enchanted by all the wonderful holiday ventures our spacious chalet with its wonderful surroundings has to offer. That is... when we are not there ourselves to create memories...
Annemarie & Willem de Vries purchased this Chalet in 2008
Why Annemarie & Willem de Vries chose Piesendorf
The property is centrally situated in an area that has so much to offer: great slopes all around us, great climate, both in winter or summer, 300 days of skiing on the glacier, tennis, golf, cycling, hiking, simply relaxing. The property is spacious enough and boasts all facilities. We love to be there as often as we can.
What makes this Chalet unique
The almost year-round skiing facilities, the magnificent view, the comfort of our house, the suitability for (for instance) three generation families with elderly and small children. The 100 % accessibility to the chalet, even in times of heavy snowfall (2019). We can go on and on...

The chalet is very spacious, clean and well equipped for a large group of people
This chalet is ideally situated, whether it be for skiing or a non-skiing holiday. There is a local train station,which you can walk to in 15 minutes or drive to and park for free. From there you can catch the train to Zell Am See, which takes about 15-20 minutes. In Zell Am See, you can Get off the train and catch another train to Salzburg, which takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to get to, or you can stay in Zell Am See, which has a very large lake you can walk around, or take a boat ride on. There are also plenty of places to eat and buy gifts. If you do get the train to Salzburg, look on the web for the Einfach Raus ticket from OBB. You can buy this online and use it on your phone. If you are traveling in a group, maximum 5 people, it works out much cheaper to buy this ticket for longer journeys, rather than buying individual tickets.The chalet itself has a very large outside balcony, where you have fantastic views of the Austrian mountains. You are also not very far from all the cable cars, whether you just want to go up the Mountajns for hiking, skiing or just the magnificent views. Me and my family had a fantastic holiday staying in this chalet.We are not Skiers but did lots of travelling and sightseeing. If you have a car the drive on the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse is well worth doing. It currently costs 36 Euros for a car to drive this very long mountain road that ascends to around 2,500 meters and is well worth it for the views. Overall, if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area then I highly recommend this chalet. The owners are very accommodating and their communication with you is excellent.
First stay in this accommodation and we'll be back
This was the first time booking accommodation if this kind in Austria and I must firstly say that the owners were a real pleasure to deal with. Excellent levels of communication throughout the process which was both informative and reassuring.
The accommodation was as described and the house was larger and roomier than expected with perhaps the exception of the kitchen which, although a little small compared to the rest of the house, was still more than ample for our group of 9. All rooms adequately catered for our group and the furnishing were homely and comfortable. The dining room table sat our whole group and was the location form many apres ski stories of the days events. The property was very clean and well maintained and the views from the spacious balconies were breathtaking.
We would definitely recommend this accommodation to our friends and relatives but not before we book our dates for next year! The location of the house is fantastic and was ideally placed for a short drive to our skiing destination in Kaprun but was equally suitable for skiing in Zell Am See. A wee gem of a place as we say in Scotland! We will be returning next year such was the fun we had.
Fantastic view in Fürth
Home Away did not send check in information to me. I had assumed the host would be at the property, since I had not heard anything. We stood outside an empty, locked house when we arrived. Luckily the supplied contact numbers to our host worked, and I made contact with her in Holland. Luckily the key was available, and we got all necessary information via mail and whats app. This was a mistake by Home Away, as I understood it.
the Room configuration was perfect, since we were a group of 10 friends and family. The view from the terrace was extraordinary. There were ample supplies of glass, china and kitchen Utensils. Wifi worked perfectly the whole week. All in all this was a perfect location for hiking in the area Kaprun/ Sell am Zee.
Viel Platz, viele Schlafräume, Sauna und Infrarot-Kabine!
Ein tolles Haus: Es gibt 6 Schlafzimmer, ein großes Wohn-Esszimmer und eine große Küche. Zum Wohlfühen gehört eine Sauna - wahlweise mit Infrarot-Möglichkeit oder finnisch.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, konnten auf der Terasse sitzen und die tolle Aussicht genießen.
Die Vermitterin ist sehr freundlich, die Anleitung für die Sauna bzw. Infrarotkabine war zwar etwas unverständlich geschrieben, aber wir haben alles nutzen können.
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und kommen gerne wieder
