The holiday home “Auf da Leitn 8”, in the middle of a traffic-free hamlet at 819 meters above sea level, is set amidst Hohe Tauern National Park, on the edge of the Kitzbühel Alps and the entrance to the Wildkogel. With the simple architecture, the façade of Rauris natural stone and the shingle roof of larch the Pinzgauer mountain hut has been interpreted in a modern way. The interiors are fully lined with oak, but by virtue of to its linear design the ambience is modern rather than rustic – and miles away from a romantic cottage style. The only exceptions are the adorned chairs: these are handmade using old traditional stencils, and give the interior the right dose of local color. The 230 sqm living space is spread over 3 floors: The bedrooms are on the ground floor and the 2nd floor, on the 1st floor is a large living room with an open kitchen and a sauna. The panoramic windows and sheltered terraces offer beautiful views of the mountains.
