Families would be hard pressed to find better self-catering accommodation in Åre. The Vargen Apartments are right next to the slopes of Åre Björnen – the best area for beginners and kids - so you've got a great view of the action. It only takes a couple of minutes to walk to the nearest drag lift and the ski school meeting point, depending which building you're staying in.
There are 20 buildings, each with six apartments. The apartments are privately owned so the small details may vary, but they're all spacious and homely, with simple décor and wooden furnishings. They each have a well equipped kitchen, complete with oven, dishwasher and fridge, so cooking is a breeze. Separate bedrooms give everyone a bit of privacy, and the balcony or terrace will help you make the most of those views. But the best bit might just be the private sauna – the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day.
The reception building and ski hire shop are a short downhill walk away, on the other side of the slope. It’s a 7km trip to Åre By, but you can easily take the ski bus there to explore the shops, bars and restaurants, or to stock up at the supermarket in the train station.
Linen is provided but beds are not made on arrival. You will need to make up the beds yourself.
The reception building is a short walk from the apartments. After you pick up your keys, you will need to walk 5-10 minutes uphill with your luggage.
There's no rep based in Åre, but support is available 24/7 by phone, email or Twitter.

•Excellent snow record •Chic village base •Big ski area for N. Europe
As one of Scandinavia’s biggest ski areas, this place has incredible offerings for families (and everyone else for that matter), with a trendy and relaxed village to come home to at the end of the day. Reindeer roam the forests and the northern lights sometimes appear at night. We love this part of the world.
