Overview - chalet description - Chalet Hartkaiser description

NB: while the Supplier rating is 2.5 Star, the Official rating is 2+ Star.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at the Chalet Hartkaiser. It’s a small chalet sleeping up to 16 people in total across 7 rooms – so you can expect a diverse range of fellow customers but also personal service and a relaxed atmosphere.

The rooms are fairly simple but comfortable and warm. There’s also free WiFi available and a ski storage room in the cellar. We’re quite pleased with the view of the Wilder Kaiser from the dining room too.

Breakfast is available every day and there’s a hot option 6 days per week. Each afternoon you can return after a hard day on the mountain to the smell of fresh baking and homemade cakes. In the evenings, you’ll be treated to 3 courses of home cooked dishes, washed down with chalet wine (or cordial for the kids). Just let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.

Our chalet team take a well deserved mid-week day off – on this day you’ve got the opportunity to scout out a nice local restaurant. If you need any good suggestions or help making bookings then the team will be happy to assist.

Location-wise you’re right on the path of the free ski buses – which stop virtually outside and drop you off at the Hartkaiser in minutes. Otherwise it’s about 5 minutes to the centre of town and a little further to the lifts and ski school.

Please note:

This chalet does not have a lift.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.

Please note: Public areas will be cleaned each morning. Rooms will be cleaned twice a week. All linen and towels are provided. Cots can fit in rooms 3, 5, 6 and 8. All bedroom doors are lockable.

Set at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser Mountain range, Ellmau has a small population and so much classic Austrian charm that you’re unlikely to get through the week without donning Lederhosen or a dirndl. The village is built of the sturdy wood and stone structures you only find in the mountains, made picture-perfect by the central parish church. It’s not all about the aesthetics - you’ll find some excellent eateries, affordable après ski, and good quality chalets, hotels and apartments of all shapes, sizes an...
The resort has an excellent lift system connecting to the neighbouring villages of Going and Scheffau. It really comes into its own for beginners: children’s lessons take place in ‘Kinderland’ (next to the ski school office on Alte Straße 3) which is kitted out with magic carpets, snow plough area and mini slaloms. You’ll find a range of short, gentle blues at the bottom of the mountain leading down into Ellmau and Going, well protected and separate from the rest of the ski area. #100b from Astberg is a nic...
The local après is low key but merry, with Pub 66 easily winning the gong for most popular drink spot (trust us, after a few sherries the karaoke here starts looking a lot more appealing). Living up to Austria’s reputation for stein-swinging après. If you’re in the mood to warm up and relax, we love the Bettina - a gorgeous mountainside café in the perfect location for a family pit stop on the way back down the slopes - they do smashing hot chocolates and glühwein. Amongst the thirty-something re...
