If it’s serious skiing – and plenty of après-ski silliness – you’re after, St Anton am Arlberg is the resort for you. Arlberg is the ski area of demanding pistes – red runs here would be black in most other resorts – and deep powder runs in the Austrian Alps. St Anton delivers up the bouncing slope-side bars, such as the MooserWirt, so there’s certainly no danger of getting bored. Here’s our guide to the best apartments in St Anton, Austria.
Just five minutes’ drive down the valley in the smaller village of St Jakob am Arlberg, Riefli Aparts are two stylish two-bedroom apartments. The first thing to catch your eye will be the floor-to-ceiling wall of stacked split logs next to the fireplace. Thankfully, for your own safety and for the structural integrity of the building, these are just decorative – but there is a basket of logs you can use to toss into the log burner. The minimal white-and-wood scheme, designer kitchen and cabin-like rooms are an added bonus. Order in a cheese-loaded pizza from Pomodoro to refuel after a day on the slopes.
