With their newly built holiday houses in the middle of the Austrian mountains, Marlene and Christoph present a fairytale version of the new #Cabinlove trend. We checked in and found a special place.
This nature lovers´ dream is a mere half an hour drive from the Austrian town of Salzburg. Located in St. Martin between the rocky peaks of the Tennengebirge, the newly built hideaway consists of two identical holiday homes. As you may gather from the pictures, the chalets are not exactly in the center of the village, but rather on a slope that also doubles as farmland for the owner’s family. So, safe for some grazing cows nearby there is really nothing that could disturb the tranquility of your holiday.
And if you think that’s unique, wait until you see the inside.
Enter the chalets and you are not only at peace but at home. Well, that`s how we felt like. Everything is squeaky clean and tidy, each party gets its own parking space, a small garden, cozy rooms for the whole family, a sauna next to the bedroom, a perfectly equipped kitchen, a fireplace, flat screen TV, wireless Internet, a jacuzzi on the terrace, a barbecue and, special bonus feature… a spectacular view of the mountains.
The interior is predominantly constructed with aged wood from the region … with just the right feel of patina. The two chalets are each equipped with three bedrooms, so they are ideal for four to six people.
It was in 2016 when the Almidylle hosts Marlene and Christoph decided to develop this piece of farmland, which is owned by Christophs family. They also run a rather simple family hotel down in the village called “Untersüssgut”.
To quote Christoph: “The place where we built our chalets has always been very special to us. It was always the place where we could let go of everyday life, through the idyll of the mountains on our little alpine pasture. That’s how the idea was born to share this special place with others.”
Once you become acquainted, you will quickly understand what theses hosts are all about. “Friendly” is their middle name, they have just had their first child (a second one is on the way) and they like the mountains, nature and … some fine strawberry cake.
Electric stove with oven, microwave
Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster
Bed linen & towels included.
A week of fairytale holidays in the mountains, preferably as a family of three to six. In winter, the chalet is also suitable as a starting point for a great week of ambitious skiing. The ski areas of the Ski Amadé ski alliance are practically around the corner. With only one ski pass you have 860 km of slopes at your disposal — for any level.
In the summer, free electric mountain bikes are available in the basement. So, you just walk down the stairs, get on your bike and then ride up the local mountain. There is hardly anything more beautiful at the moment.
In summer the whole chalet costs from 360 Euros (In winter from 380 Euros, christmas holidays 460 Euro per night). There`s also a cleaning fee of 150 Euros on top.
