A really enjoyable week away in a beautiful location. A simple 5 minutes bus journey into the town or take the small lift to begin your skiing. Our hosts Tom and Jess were exceptional.....informal and friendly yet professional with it, pretty much faultless to be honest. This is the same with Rep Becky who wa... + more

This chalet is in a ski in ski out location when there is snow but otherwise still only minutes away from first lift up and can ski right back to the chalet. The staff cannot do enough for you and Joanna cooks some fantastic cakes. Dan and Joanna cooked all the meals from scratch and there was plenty of it. Not... + more

My family & I would just like to pass on our thanks to John Knowelden and his team (Vicky & Becky) at Chalet Haus Alpenland in Zug.

The chalet was good on the whole, the chalet manager kept changing over so it was a little bit disorganised but in general the staff knew what they were doing.

Location - where is Chalet Alpenland

Zug. Chalet Alpenland enjoys a stunning, ski-in/ski-out location in the pretty, rural hamlet of Zug, on the outskirts of Lech, which is home to a small selection of bars and restaurants including the renowned Rote Wand. The chalet is next to the Zugerbahn Chairlift, giving direct access to the magnificent Lech ski area. Intermediate/advanced skiers can enjoy skiing quite literally back to the chalet door whilst beginners need simply to take the regular free ski bus into Lech for their lessons, which takes five minutes (approx.). The service currently runs until 3am (small charge in the evening) so that you can enjoy the atmosphere, tradition and sheer decadence of Lech town itself. Snow boots and easy to carry bags are needed for arrival as the steep access to the chalet can be very snowy.

This package holiday to Chalet Alpenland in Lech, Austria departs Tuesday 3rd January 2017, for a 4 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

This is known as one of the 12 classic resorts when it comes to skiing and is part of the ‘Best of the Alps’ group. Also crowned 2004’s Prettiest Village in Europe, Lech oozes traditional alpine charm accompanied by a world-class ski area with some of the best snow in the Alps. The resort’s premier status in the ski world makes it a favourite of the rich and Royal – Princess Diana used to ski here and don’t be surprised if you see the likes of Tom Cruise and Vladimir Putin on the slopes! You’ll find an ub...
This is famously the setting of the hilarious skiing scene in ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’, although you won’t have any Bridget-like disasters on the piste if you take advantage of the excellent instruction and beginner slopes on offer. You’ll find some lovely nursery slopes behind the village church (you can’t miss it) and up around Oberlech to practice on until you feel confident enough to take the Schlegelkpof and explore some brilliant gentle terrain for skiers and snowboarders. With a sizable...
Jägertee (rum, black tea and spices) is the local’s drink of choice, making it a must-try when you’re back from the slopes. Most of the nightlife here reflects Lech’s status as an uber-posh resort, with venues emitting high-end and exclusive feel. While it doesn’t have the same legendary reputation as the après in Austrian resorts like St Anton, you can still find a brilliant variety of venues offering a mix of the traditional and contemporary – chop and change between traditional tea dances and late nigh...

"Our second stay in this excellent chalet"

Picky, Cheadle
5/ out of 5
We all had a good week away, this was our second time staying in the same chalet because we enjoyed it so much the first time. It’s been refurbished quite recently and is very spacious. The hosts were excellent. We’ve been with this chalet company before and it was the same kind of catering they usually do: a nice 3 course dinner, breakfast and cakes in the afternoon. We could ski out down a very small slope, go over the bridge and then ski to the lift, so it definitely is a ski out chalet. To ski in, you come off a red from Zug. With a lack of snow it was obviously a bit choppy and icy but with good snow it would be better.

"Chalet Alpenland, Zug, 19-26 Jan 2014"

Accommodation: Very good, big bedrooms and bathroom, large lounge, slightly small dining room for 18 people, great sauna and boot room, spotlessly clean, quiet, lovely views. Staff: Truly amazing service from Tom and Jess, wonderful food (too much), good wine, lots of little details made them the perfect hosts. I only hope they can keep going at that rate of work, nothing was too much trouble! A truly lovely couple. Same can't be said of Zug rep, as much use as a politician and about as clueless. Arrivals need to know snow conditions and daily forecasts, best areas, good restaurants for Thursday night, best way back to the Chalet on skis etc. Overworked hosts need help too. Becky, get your act together. However, John the overall Manager was very helpful and pleasant when we saw him. Chalet access: Chalet can be skied to and from, but in fresh snow and without skis it is a fair climb back to the Village and no fun in the early morning when you have a coach to catch. With skis it is worse. Slope access: 2 minutes to the chair, 10 minutes to the whole ski area, no limit to the range of skiing, superb. Zug: VERY small, don't bother, catch the bus to Lech (5 minutes) which is the best place for food, bars, shopping. Also try Zurs area for skiing. Route back to Zug on skis is a rough and tough red, not for beginners. Transfer: Innsbruck to Zug takes over 2 hours, nearer 2:30. Area for improvement: Get a knowledgeable, experienced Chalet rep who is a keen skier. Offer smaller portions of food at dinner with more available if wanted. Offer Tom and Jess lifetime contracts! Austria: If you are used to France (3 V's, La Plagne, Val etc) you'll find Austrian skiing more demanding and far prettier, with pleasanter locals who are more polite (but then, who isn't more polite than the French!) and similar prices with far better service and quality.

"A great base for an outstanding trip."

A really enjoyable week away in a beautiful location. A simple 5 minutes bus journey into the town or take the small lift to begin your skiing. Our hosts Tom and Jess were exceptional.....informal and friendly yet professional with it, pretty much faultless to be honest. This is the same with Rep Becky who was a constant help, the company need to keep hold of people like this. The rooms and sauna are small, and the lounge could do with comfy chairs, but these things aside it was a lovely place to stay and recommended for people who are looking for a good all round package. The food is lovely, but can be a bit 'cuisine' like.....I'd love a big plate of spag bol instead of arty stuff (not the chalet hosts fault). A great overall result......someday we will return.........

"Fantastic location,great food and staff"

This chalet is in a ski in ski out location when there is snow but otherwise still only minutes away from first lift up and can ski right back to the chalet. The staff cannot do enough for you and Joanna cooks some fantastic cakes. Dan and Joanna cooked all the meals from scratch and there was plenty of it. Not forgetting Scott who was always friendly and helpful. We were a party of 8 and stayed on the first floor, all the rooms were a really good size. Nice modern clean shower rooms with excellent water pressure. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

"Exceeding expectations - Chalet Alpenland – Zug"

Alasdair Hall
5/ out of 5
My family & I would just like to pass on our thanks to John Knowelden and his team (Vicky & Becky) at Chalet Haus Alpenland in Zug. (Arrival date 30th March 2014) As we booked very late (the main emphasis being value for money) we have to say the holiday far exceeded our expectations. The resort was great for the time of year and the chalet was significantly better than we have previously experienced over many years of European skiing. The staff led by John and his team were outstanding – any request was dealt with immediately. John is extremely knowledgeable, sociable and is a significant asset to the staffing of the tour operator. The food was to a high standard all week and the afternoon cakes were exceptional. We were very taken with Lech / Zurs as a resort and will return, perhaps when the snow is great for off piste skiing. The only changes we would make to the chalet would be decent pillows, a comfy sofa or two in the lounge and improved wi-fi. We fully realise this is down to the chalet owner and not the tour operator. ... Hoping they open a chalet at Snowmass in Aspen as we go there regularly…….! Many thanks Al, Jane, Alex & Izzy Hall

"Chalet in Zug"

The chalet was good on the whole, the chalet manager kept changing over so it was a little bit disorganised but in general the staff knew what they were doing. The cooks tried hard and the food was fine, some of the people complained about the breakfasts not being big enough but they were alright for me – it just would have been better if they could cater for bigger appetites too. There was plenty of space around the building. We were right on the top floor where there was another seating area, we didn’t use it but it was there if we needed it. The Zug chair lift is right outside the chalet so in about 50 metres you’re on the lift which is fantastic.

"Quaint spot with good access to Lech centre"

Snoman, Sno Staff

Modern in appearance, and spacious living quarters for its 19 guests; large groups of well-seasoned skiers will love this chalet. Being in a small hamlet with just a handful of local bars, it nonetheless has very good access to the main town of Lech, with a bus service running until the early hours of the morning in much of the peak season. Expert skiers will enjoy the location of this chalet because its ski-in ski-out if you're comfortable on the red 48 Zugertobel run, or black 49 Zuppert as well as next door to the Zugerbahn chairlift.
