Sitting in the small village of Schuttdorf just outside of Zell am See is the charming Gasthof Schütthof. A stay here gives you the best of both worlds as you get a peaceful and picturesque setting with excellent convenience being close to the Areitbahn gondola.
The staff in the hotel are as vibrant and friendly as the well-known pastel yellow exterior of the hotel. As soon as you arrive, you're greeted with plenty of light and space. This carries on through to the public area and bedrooms, all of which are comfortable with plenty of traditional touches and wood-panelling.
The gondola (about a five-minute walk away) takes you speedily into the Schuttdorf ski area. From here you can head over to Zell Am See and ski all the way back, taking in the lovely long runs back to Schuttdoef village, or spend time in Zell am See town and catch a local bus back.
If you fancy taking some time off the mountain, make the most of the Vulcano Spa. Relax in the two saunas, steam bath or in the relaxation area with its volcano theme, comfy loungers and views of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Kaprun.
