'Residenz Zwieselstein' is a select, luxury complex of 12 apartments spread on 5 levels with fantastic views of the mountains. Chalet Burns is located on the 1st floor providing panoramic Mountain views from the balconies. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard including all mod cons such as flat screen TVs and fully fitted kitchens.
The complex is situated in the alpine village of Zwieselstein (1.472 m), in the Ötztal Valley, arguably the prettiest in the Tirol. ‘Residenz Zwieselstein’ is 3km to the South of Sölden in the heart of the Ötztal Alps, 1.5 miles from the lifts and less than 200m away from the ski bus stop to Sölden and Obergurgl. With its small chapel dating back to 1747 the village is characteristically Tyrolean, dominated by 600 mountain peaks of which 174 are over 3,000 m. The village and the valley offer a unique combination of stunning natural landscapes, warm hospitality and authentic tradition. The raw beauty and picture postcard surroundings contrast with the impressive infrastructure and facilities available to visitors.

With more runs than Chamonix and Kitzbühel, Sölden definitely has a lot to offer and is certainly one of the top international ski resorts in Austria. Although Sölden's vast ski area, spanning over 150km, is enough to keep even the keenest skiers busy, there are plans to connect the valleys of Otztala and Pitztal via the Rettenbach Glacier which should be complete within the next two years. This will give rise to an even more diverse and challenging piste.

Obergurgl 1,800m – 3,080m (6,300ft – 10,000ft) At the top of the Ötztal valley lies the picturesque village of Obergurgl; the village is one in the enviable position of being able to accommodate the early skiers of the season by consistently promising great snow. Essentially a skiers village, Obergurgl has the advantage of a long winter season as well as being just a short drive or bus away from the Rettenbach glacier in Sölden.
