    An architectural masterpiece, this surrealist structure is constructed almost entirely of Larch wood. Resembling the shape of a bird, soaring through the air, this cabin is completely unique – an intriguingly strange juxtaposition from the natural surroundings in which it lives. As well as being impressive structurally speaking, the cabin is decked out with luxury facilities, including heated flooring and panoramic views of the surroundings scenery.

    Bentleys House

    These exclusive chalets are exactly what you’d imagine the perfect Austrian countryside home to be. All are decked out with wonderful wooden furniture and fireplaces for when the weather turns chilly.

    Ski Lodge Wolf

    This meticulously neat and polished structure is perched way up in the clouds, 2000m above sea level to be exact. Created using sustainable wood materials, this sleek restaurant chalet appears not to have a hair out of place.

    Bergchalet Alpenrose

    A romantic, gingerbread-style cabin emulating an authentic Austrian charm. Especially cosy in the winter months, when the roof stop has a thick blanket of snow and the windows are alight with an orange glow, it is conveniently located next to the ski slopes of Hochzillertal.

    Hüttendorf Maria Alm

    Rustic and extremely cute log cabins tucked away on a mountainside of Hochkönig with all the basic modern amenities. They are particularly cosy in the wintertime, when the epic surroundings are dusted with perfect white snow.

    Chalet Muhle

    In the midst of mountain air and beautiful forests, you’ll find the Chalet Mühle, a beautiful wooden structure built in Tyrolean style and decked out with modern comforts.

    House of the Forest Owls

    This minimalist cabin was designed to blend serenely into its wild surroundings. The aptly named ‘House of the Forest Owls’ was created by architects to allow environmentalists to get up close and personal with their organic subjects, in a structure that merges seamlessly with the forest.
