About Colin and Mandy Summers
We are from UK, and have lived in The Middle East since 1988, and see too much sand!! We love the contrast of snow in the winter and the beautiful lush scenery in the summer. We wish we could take more advantage of our beatiful apartment, but unforuntately we can't, but we hope that you will love it too.
Colin and Mandy Summers purchased this Apartment in 2010

We do hope that you love this apartment and location as much as we do, and keep it in the way that you found it, for all to enjoy for year to come. The Summers Family.

Great appartment and location
We stayed with Colin and Mandy 3 seasons and really enjoyed it. The apartment is specious and cosy in the same time, well equipped and a few steps away from the Achterjet lift. The owners are very responsive and helpful with even small issues. An address to come back to.
Thank you Kajetan for your kind words. We will miss you next year, but hope we are able to welcome you to Summerhaus again in the future.

Wij verbleven met 2 gezinnen, totaal 8 personen. Op één van de slaapkamers waren 2 bedden bijgeschoven. Dat ging prima, dit is een kamer waar je niet veel hoeft te zijn. Een andere optie is dat 2 personen in de woonkamer op een slaapbank liggen.
Het appartement heeft grote ramen en is hierdoor erg licht. Het balkon heeft tot 14.30 uur zon (in februari). Dit zal in de zomer nog langer zijn wanneer de zon hoger staat.
In de kelder heb je een verwarmd hok voor je ski'is wat natuurlijk ook erg ideaal is. Daar staat ook een wasmachine en droger waar je gebruik van kunt maken.
De keuken is prima ingericht en heeft alles: vaatwasser, oven, magnetron, waterkoker, koffiezet-apparaat, grote koelkast met vriesvakje.
Om te skiën loop je binnen 1 minuut naar de piste en kun je zo skiën naar de lift Achterberg Jet. Op deze piste kun je aan het einde van de dag ook weer stoppen en ben je zo bij het huisje.
Het dorp ligt direct aan de snelweg waardoor je er zo bent. Het laatste stuk weg naar het appartement is behoorlijk steil. Dus bij sneeuw of gladheid heb je wel sneeuwkettingen nodig. Naar de supermarkt kun je lopen in 10/15 minuten, naar de langlaufloipes met wandelpad erlangs loop je in 5/10 minuten. Dus prima te doen.
We stayed 4 adults and 3 children in this great appartment. It had everything we needed. Good beds. Very clean. Near the pist and gondol. Easy to get in with the keybox. Nice view.
Thank you for letting us stay here!
Best regards Fam Boel Holst, Denmark
Thank you for your positive review. We are so happy you had a good time, and
we hope to welcome you back to Summerhaus soon!.
Wonderful place in Flachau
We spend 6 nights at this very lovely, species, well equipped and very clean place. We had a great time. The owners and the management company were extremely responsive to all our needs (we had a problem with the Wifi that was fixed right away). We hope to come again - next time during the winter. Highly recommended.
Very comfortabel apartment, only 200 meters from the Achterjet (red) slope.
Large, luxury but cosy 3-bedroom apartment. We shared with two families with four children under 10 without a problem. Very close to the Achterjet lift, just ski an easy hundred meters down to the gondola after walking 200m to the slope (the red slope can be demanding from the top in warm weather conditions and is crowded at the end of the day, however with good snow last year even possible for our 7 year old niece). The living room is big enough to accommodate 8 people (though the kitchen table than becomes a little small), the master bedroom is big with bathroom en suite, the other two smaller rooms have 4 single beds and can share the other bathroom with bath and separate toilet. Enough storing spaces. Washing machine and dryer available. Ski boot warmer. Two hair dryers. Enough towels (you can wash them), nice showers and bath, comfortable couches, toys, DVD player, sledges and so on. Everything to make your (skiing) holiday a success!!
We hope to be back!
Excellent apartment, great location
Lovely apartment, well equipped and very clean. Excellent location to the slopes - slightly above the lift, so you ski down to be the first up the mountains!
Special interest holidays:
Flachau is an ideal centre for activity holidays all year round, whether in summer or winter. As well as skiing and winter sports, Flachau provides hundreds of kilometres of marked hiking trails throughout the mountains and valleys. Many of the ski lifts remain open in summer, taking you up into some of the world's most breath taking scenery of mountains and lakes. Many mountain side restaurants provide fantastic food and hospitality. Mountain biking is very popular, take a lift up to one of the many mountains and enjoy biking down the trails. Or try cycling or white water rafting down the rivers. There are also several nearby swimming lakes, 2 within Flachau, which provide great family fun. For those of you who want to take in some culture, you are only a 35 minute drive to Salzburg, one of Europe's 'beloved' historical cities with castles, museums, theatres, opera, zoos and one of the most remarkable 'old towns' in Europe.
There are several lakes within a 30 minute drive of Flachau and 2 swimming lakes within a 15 minute walk. The lakes provide for safe family swimming and bathing, with plenty of amenities around (restaurants, snack bars).
Klagenfurt Airport is also close by, approx 100kms away and a 1 hour drive. Munich Airport is approx 200kms away, but it's a fast 2 hour drive, 'door to door' motorway all of the way to Flachau. There are taxi and bus shuttle services from the airports to Flachau. Car Hire is available from any airport and the local railway stations or main towns (e.g. Salzburg).

There are many other retail outlets: boutiques, sports equipment hire (e.g ski and bike hire), outdoor clothes outlets, and electrical stores. There are ATM machines available, and nearby petrol stations. The Flachau Tourist Board is situated in the village centre and provides plenty of information (in English) about local amenities and will help arrange any bookings or special requests for you.
