Fodor's Review

A short drive north of Franz Josef village, these very smart one- and two-bedroom villas are in a quiet rural environment away from the tourist bustle and helicopters. Each has a spacious lounge and dining area and kitchen and opens to private decks with mountain and rural views. Kids can run off some energy in the playground (with trampoline and swings) or neighboring farmlet, with its alpaca, sheep, and farm dog. Gas barbecues are available for guests. They also have mountain bikes for hire.
