Charming and Elegant Austrian Apartments for Skiing and Hiking Holidays
Centrally located in the ski and spa town of Bad Gastein and only one hour south of Salzburg, CasaNeve is an old historic house completely modernised and refurbished in 2012. The house offers 3 self contained luxury large apartments which can also be rented individually for both your winter and summer holidays, and it can accommodate up to 25 people. This spacious house has retained its classic Belle Epoque style but the apartments also offer all the comforts that both families and young professionals need when on holidays. Each apartment has a very well equipped kitchen, and all the comforts you will need during your holidays such as for instance 40" Smart LED TV, bean to cup Bosch coffee machine, DVD player, free wireless internet, Bluetooth adapter to stream your own movies and music to the TV, plenty of sitting and dining space.
The house has its own ski and heated ski boots storage facility, however we are approximately 300 mt from the foot bridge that takes you the main ski lift which has a very handy ski/boot storage facility in case you did not want to bring your skis back and forward from the house.
We are positioned just above the old center of the town, and in-between the main ski lift and the center. Hence you could always walk 100 mt down a foot path and catch the ski bus from the old center, in case you did not want to rent a car or walk to the ski lift. From the ski lift walking back to the house is about 5 minutes; no need for any ski bus.
Around the house you have a choice of bars, hotels, restaurants, all within a 50 mt radius. One of the best restaurants in town is just below our house.
The highest mountain in Bad Gastein skiing area is Sportgastein, around 2700 mt high, and overall the Gastein area offers 220 Km of skiing for all levels. Bad Gastein is also in between 2 glaciers. Kaprum and the Molltal Glaciers are both above 3000 mt high and can be reached by car in around 45 minutes.

Happy to respond to questions !
Please note that a Tourist Tax of €2.2 per adult per day is collected on site by the care taker as additional cost to the booking. Adults are 14+ years people.
Also, a €300 damage deposit is collected in cash at check-in and refunded in cash at check-out. We do not charge for small damages like broken plates and glasses but we kindly ask our guests to let us know so that we can replace them for the next guests.
Please help us to look after our lovely historic house with a few simple rules:
Please take off slippery and muddy boots at the entrance of each flat to protect the restored antique wood floors (110 years old). We have provided shoe racks and coat hooks for outdoor clothing.
No pets please. No smoking in the building please.
We have provided an ashtray outside the house hence kindly try to use the ashtray and not throw cigarette butts and other litter in our garden or in the footpaths and gardens around us. Also, please be mindful of not hanging in front of the windows of another guest in the house while smoking and in fact when weather permitting try to move away from the house.
Please store ski boots in the boot room in the basement and the skis outside in the ski hut.
If you have wet clothes please make use of the drying rack in the laundry room (in the basement).
Please always check there is water in the coffee machine before you use it.
As the house has three apartments please keep down the noise when in the communal parts of the house.
Please follow the garbage disposal rules.
Please do not move furniture around, it creates additional logistic problems for us (and we are not a Hotel) plus it can scratch the wood floor.
If something breaks, kindly just let the KEY HOLDER know, particularly because in case of glasses and plates we will have to replace them before the new guests come. Small damages do not result in charges for you but if not fixed will cause disappointment for the next guest.
We have put an iron and ironing board in the utility room, please do not carry the iron to the apartments and please do not use your own iron in the apartment, this is not allowed by the insurance company and it is a big fire hazard.
PLEASE PLEASE use the waste bins in the bathroom in order to dispose all of your toiletries and ONLY throw toilet paper in the toilet. The plumbing is very old and for your own comfort and for that of other guests you should be considerate and not throw too much paper in the toilet since this may create a blockage.
We are April and Michele, married couple with two kids living in London. We are passionate about skiing but also believe in beauty and comforts when on holidays and always found that it's difficult to find high quality accommodations for families and young professionals at affordable prices.
So when 2 years ago bought an old historic house in Bad Gastein and refurbished completely we decided to make it into 3 stylish, luxury and charming apartments, and renamed it CasaNeve. We hope you will enjoy it !
