A luxury ski in ski out three bedroom room, two bathroom, child friendly, self catering ski apartment that sleeps eight.
The location of the apartment is fantastic. The Piste is only 100 metres away, so there is no need to worry about driving, parking and walking with heavy equipment such as skis, snowboards, poles etc. You can literally put your skis on at the front door, ski all day and take them off again at the front door when you have finished. Once you are on the ski slope there is a short descent of 250 meters to the Valley Station of the “Achter Jet” ski lift which will take you high up the mountain.
The fully furnished 110 square metre chalet apartment (incl. cellar) consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a combined kitchen, dining and living room all of which have individually controlled under-floor heating. In addition there is a ski cellar. It is located on the top floor of the house, which means that the front door is on the same level as the covered car parking area. This means that luggage and shopping handling is very easy.
The main room of the apartment is a large 40 square metre combined living room, dining-room and kitchen. The room has a beautiful pinewood vaulted ceiling, parquet floor and large French windows leading onto a wooden balcony. The views from this room are breathtaking with the Dachstein mountain range in the distance and the Flachau valley and town just below.
We felt it would have been better suited to visitors with cars.
Also bit disappointed in the number of towels available.
Thought it was a great apartment with beautiful scenery.
Would recommend but car needed.

We absolutely agree that the apartment is best suited to people with cars, especially if there is a lot of snow. Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the number of towels, we would have been delighted to provide you with more if only we had known.

We stayed at Flat Abercrombie for 12 nights in January 2016 for my husband's 50th birthday & had a fantastic time. We had family & friends fly over to ski every 4 days during this period, so close enough to the airport for short breaks. The accomodation is of a high standard & was ideal for a mixture of adults & teenagers with the bunkbeds being large enough for three 19year boys & the room was not too crampt. Nearly ski in ski out as only 3 mins walk to get on to the slopes. The Village has some lovely resturants and is just a 10-15 mins walk down a small hill. Julie & iain who manage the accomodation in resort were extremly helpfull as we met them by accident as we arrived & then were on hand to assist if there was a problem. Which due to an accident there was. We would definatly recommend this accomodation & Flachau, our opinion is that the transfers are short but check taxi prices. Its a fantastic place to ski with modern lifts many with bubbles & several heated and although the pass maybe not the cheapest, the price on & off the slopes for food/drink is very good a lot cheaper than france...

Really glad that you enjoyed your time in Flachau and hope that you will come back and visit us again. We agree that pass is not the cheapest and at the same time there is a huge network of resorts included so you can ski pretty much anywhere between Badgastein and Schladming - 27 resorts and over 860 KM of piste. If you are planning to stay for more than a couple of weeks or even ski in the region more than once during the season you might want to go for a season ticket, especially for children. If you book and pay for your ski pass before the 5th December it works out to be much cheaper.
Overall we had a very nice time, and the property was perfectly matching our needs - we were 2 families both with 2 adults and 2 children (below 10 years).
A few minor comments:
The floor and room heating was difficult to control.
The weather conditions made the bridge to the slope (final 20 meters) very icy and difficult for both adults and children to pass without falling, but this would normally be ok.
We can easily recommend this to other families - good value for the money.

We are a family with 3 kids (15, 12, 2.5). We brought my mom with us to take care of our youngest child while we skied.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment very much!
The huge selec tion of toys kept our little one very busy and happy all day long. The older children were happy to join when we came back from skiing.
No need to bring any toys from home since the apartment has a big selec tion of toys, games and books for all ages (including for us grownups).
You will not be bored for a single moment.
The enormous library of DVDs is amazing (for all ages)!
The kitchen is fully equipped up to the smallest detail and it was very easy to cook or bake anything I wished.
To make it short - the apartment is IDEAL for a GREAT VACATION, for skiers and non skiers alike!
Enjoy your vacation!
We were a group of seven adults, and the flat was perfect for us! Well equipped kitchen, plenty of space for cooking and for just chillin after a day in the slopes.
Location was super, short walk to the village and to the slopes.
Thumbs up, definetly recommend!
