Luxury Ski Chalets in Kitzbuhel

Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Elegant, sophisticated and year round, Kitzbuhel is a relatively unknown resort, certainly lying under the radar of British skiers. Long time haunt of Europe’s finest, this elegant resort is emerging as a fantastic alternative, or rather complement, to Austria’s already world renowned, leading ski resorts of the Arlberg. Located further to the east of this Tyrolean region of Austria, this medieval village is at the heart of a larger ski area, all seamlessly connected with state of the art lift system and an abundance of pistes to suit all levels and styles. Holders of a Skiwelt lift pass will glean access to 3 ski areas and 450km of skiable and varied terrain (comparable in size to the likes of Three Vallees),. Home to the famous downhill course, Hahnenkamm, this impressive run takes you back to the resort centre and in doing so provides impressive views and cruising sections; a welcomed attraction if you’ve hit it hard in the morning! The Kitzbuheler Horn is recognised as the nursery area and boasts brilliant blues and greens to help even first timers ease gently into the sport. And the neighbouring Bichlalm area, on the way to Jochberg, has some recently new lifts installed and offers plenty of itineraries to return back to the valley. Once back in the resort centre you will be charmed by the cobbled main street, lined with colourful houses hosting elegant boutiques and refined restaurants. Kitzbuhel is a jewel in the Tyrolean crown and truly deserves to be explored by skiers and non-skiers alike.

For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
