Historical Alpine Chalet in Austria
Surrounded by beautiful mountains, in complete silence, smelling the scent of flowers and herbs from the garden and the meadows aside, this picturesque Alpine Chalet in Vorarlberg, Austria, will be your gate to explore gorgeous cities and exciting scenarios in this unique spot of the world.
Built in the late 1940’s, this former tailer shop was recently restructured and transformed into a charming and cosy holiday home. Nowadays, with most of its original structure, old wooden walls, cosy tile stove and its inviting interior, this Alpine Chalet is far more than a holiday residence for 10 guests – it is a house with history. Enter this charming property made of natural stones through its original door, and step into the huge fully equipped kitchen, whose rear part is taken up by a large, wooden table and chairs. With exposed timber beams, ancient stone walls, and wood panelling, the Historical Alpine Chalet offers that quintessential alpine charm that everyone has come to associate with a luxury mountain holiday in Austria.
On the first floor, guests will be ale to find the large living room ; the heart of the house is characterized by a beautiful coffered ceiling and the old tiled stove with covered stove bench was a new white fir floor, to keep guests warm and cozy throughout their stay. This spacious Alpine Chalet impresses with its contrasting architecture: between tradition and modernity, and invites the guests to linger.
Distributed over 3 floors of the property, all of the 5 bedrooms in this Alpine Chalet are ensuite with King Size beds and come along with 2 bathrooms. There is one double bedroom on the ground floor with a shower room including a washing machine, other 2 double bedrooms on the first floor, and the last 2 double bedrooms on the second floor with the adjoining bathroom featuring a bathtub. Waking up with a view to the beautiful mountains is priceless, and the Chalet and its surroundings stimulate your mind and help to focus on the whole picture.
When visiting this charming Alpine Chalet, it won’t take long until you know where to find the next butcher shop, the best cheese or the place with the most breathtaking sunset view. Gentle slopes and undulating hillsides testify to the transformations that have taken place in the alpine landscape since the Ice Age, when the glacier here extended from the heights of the Arlberg all the way to Lake Constance. Water gushes down from the slopes into little streams and ravines, into waterfalls and gullies.
Visually, the villages are dominated by the sedate, shingled farmhouses which typify the Bregenzerwald. These single buildings characteristically have the dwelling, stable and barn all under one roof. The church tower is still the focal point of attention in each village and the church interiors are reminiscent of the Baroque tradition which spread to Switzerland, Germany and even to France through the work of the great master builder families such as the Beers, Moosbruggers and Thumbs in the course of the 17th century.
A short 50-minute drive from your Historical Chalet will lead guests to Bregenz, the ‘city by the lake’ that combines art enjoyment, hospitality, zest for life and a unique symbiosis between Lake Constance and the mountains like no other. Stroll around the streets of the heart of the city centre, the centre of social life, which invite you to linger in the wonderful restaurants and cafés. The beauty of Lake Constance is the jewel of the city of Bregenz, with urban being combined with natural. Allure and charm characterise the idyll of the third-largest inland lake in Central Europe’s waters, which is particularly known among sailing and windsurfing enthusiasts - the area is also rich in culture and history and boasts many old castles, picturesque medieval villages, and beautiful gardens.
