What you will love about this home
Our lovely alpine chalet was totally renovated 2009. It is only used for family and friends visiting us. Since we are in furniture business it is furnished to a very high standard with a fully fitted modern kitchen including SAT TV, dish washer, fridge-freezer combination, microwave, oven etc... Two lovely decorated double bedrooms and a living room with pull out sofa bed and annother SAT TV, a totally new bathroom with shower and toilet are on the upper floor. There is another seperate toilet on ground floor. Both bedrooms have excess to a south facing balcony with views of the Alps, a nice garden with apple trees belongs to our house. The house is in a quiet location but only 5 minutes walking distance to the village of Bruck with shops, restaurants and more... Since this is just a chalet which we use for friends and family (our private house is 5minutes away from the chalet) the house is always available for an exchange. One room on ground floor is used as an office so this room cannot be used by the exchange family but of course we provide internet.

We truly live in one of the most beautiful places in Europe. Near the highest mountain of Austria called the ``Großglockner`` and near the lake of Zell am See (just 2km away). The area offers an very large infrastructure - from water sports, lake shore baths to mountain adventures. Kaprun - Zell am See it is a very well known ski area (pists 5km away)- free ski bus within 3 minutes walk from our house - you can even ski in summer on the glacier of Kaprun on 3000 meters, the glacier is only 10 km away and then have a swim in the clear waters of the Zeller See (we are pround of the drink water quality of our lake). There is a good network of cross country pists (one is right in front of the house). The house has a view on the glacier so there are white mountains to see also in summer :-) A brand new spa called ``Tauern Spa Kaprun`` opend this year (5km away), many places of interests are nearby - National Park ``Hohetauern``, museums, spa, lake shore baths and family fun baths, lots of sports possibilities like mountain biking, hiking, skiing, tobogganing, rafting, paragliding, riding, fishing, guided ranger tours in the National Park ``Hohetauern`` .... Bruck is a nice village with an old castle called ``Schloss Fischhorn``, there are several supermarkets, coffee shops, bakerys, restaurants, sport shops etc. within 5-10 minutes walk from the house.
