I had a dream!

I am Dutch and lived until 2006 mainly in the Netherlands. In 2004 I decided to start living my dream. I wanted to be an independant entrepreneur in the Alps. Since I was young I travelled at least 2 times per winter season into the Alps. During these travels I met many Austrian people who inspired me and I started fantasizing about having a small hotel in a ski resort in the Alp area. I started to investigate the feasibility of my dream. It was so much fun to investigate and later the search for a suitable house. 

My first time in Bad Gastein was in March 2006. My search brought me here and I loved the place the first time I saw it. So many beautiful buidings, the totally different style compared to all other villages I had seen before.

Bad Gastein has CHARISMA!

Bad Gastein offers the whole package: thermal water, a 200 km ski area, loads of free riding and touring possibilities, perfect infra structure, summer and winter season. The Gastein valley is the most beautiful valley I have ever seen.

The versatility from Dorfgastein in the beginning of the valley up to Sportgastein in the end of the valley is infinite. And in Bad Gastein I found a house that suited to all my requirements. After two years of searching and preparing the time was ripe and in June 2006 I was the proud owner of CHALET GASTEIN.

In the past 15 years many has happened. All rooms are apartments now. I invest as much as possible in the house to get it on a higher level every year. Chalet Gastein and the Gastein area fullfilled my dream and it was the best decision of my life to live my dream! I invite everyone to see the beauty of the house and the area. I will be happy to show it to you.
