Description

Having opened in December 2016 Thurnhers Residences offers a suite apartment and a penthouse apartment, accommodating from two guests in Apartment 3 to seven guests in Penthouse Apartment 5. This is luxury, spacious accommodation for guests looking for a bit more independence and privacy than in a hotel whilst still having access to hotel facilities. The accommodation is ideally suited to families and groups with accommodation ranging in size from 56 sqm to 190 sqm.

The modern, spacious apartments have limed oak floors and the modern design interiors have a mixture of Scandinavian and Italian influences. Access to all the hotel facilities means guests can utilize the spa with its swimming pool and saunas as well as have breakfast and dinner in the restaurants, alternatively breakfast can be served in the apartment when requested.

Since December 2016 all the ski resorts in Arlberg have been connected by the new Flexenbahn making it easier to access over 300 km groomed slopes and 200 km of deep powder runs. There are km of prepared piste in the fantastic Arlberg ski region as well as many cross-country tracks and deep powder runs. Other activities in the area include heli-skiing to find untouched slopes, paragliding high up in the mountains to admire the beautiful region from the air and tobogganing down the 4km illuminated track from Oberlech to Lech.

Accommodation

The apartments have fully equipped kitchens, living areas, terraces and fabulous views.

Apartment 3

This apartment has one double bedroom along with a sofa bed in the living area, bathroom with bath, separate toilet, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. At 54 sqm it is ideally suited to a couple or two adults and one child.

Penthouse Apartment 5

This penthouse apartment is on the top floor and accommodates guests in four ensuite bedrooms (3 double beds, 1 single) all with their own terrace. A large living area houses an open plan living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen, another terrace leads off from the living area. 197 sqm.

Facilities

The hotel is located just a few hundred meters from the residences where there is a spa with swimming pool, saunas and treatment rooms as well as restaurants.

Activities

The Arlberg ski area is one of the most extensive in the world offering a huge range of terrain both on and off piste. The village itself is at 1716m making it snow sure and Zurs’ Trittkopf cable car and three express chairlifts take you quickly to over 2400m. The Zurs sector of the Lech ski area benefits from slopes on both sides of the valley offering a variety of uncrowded conditions for all standards. Relatively easy blue and red runs to the village make getting home a breeze.

Zurs is integrated into the Lech ski area and is a part of the White Ring ski circuit. Getting to Lech itself is straightforward – your driver can take you straight there in a matter of minutes or you can ski there via three chairlifts and red and blue runs.

Because of Zurs’ central location between Lech and St Anton, the St Anton ski area which is covered by the Arlberg lift pass is also accessible, just a few minutes’ drive in your private shuttle vehicle. As a result, Zurs is arguably the best place to base yourself to make the most of the whole Arlberg ski area and those familiar with Europe’s other major ski areas such as the Espace Killy, Trois Vallées and the Portes du Soleil will be impressed by the absence of crowds in such a diverse and well-equipped ski area.

For non skiers, Zurs has an ice rink and the boutiques and other facilities of Lech are only a few minutes' drive away.

Location & Directions

Zurs, Austria

Thurnhers Alpenhof is in the center of Zurs in the middle of the Arlberg ski area, 5km from Lech and 15 km from St Anton. The ski lifts are a short walk or only a couple of minutes’ drive. There is a regular shuttle bus service giving easy access to the entire ski area, and which is particularly useful for non-skiers.

When to go

The Arlberg area has an enviable reputation for its snow. The Eastern Alps frequently benefit from early snow and the largely pastoral terrain does not need a hugely deep base to offer great skiing conditions. As a result, Zurs frequently offers some of the best skiing in the Alps in December and January. The microclimate means that snowfalls are more prolific than in many other resorts and with plenty of skiing above 2000 meters, conditions can be great right up until late April.
