Pools are a highlight of any family holiday

Why is a pool so appealing to children and parents during a family holiday?  

A pool promises cooling refreshment on hot summer days.
A pool represents fun and relaxation without major planning. All you need is a swimsuit, swim goggles, a ball that floats, and some diving toys! 😊
A pool keeps everybody entertained for extended periods of time – and offers a variety of activities appealing to all family members.

Needless to say, the top priority is the safety of all family members. Please remember that children should never be allowed to play unattended close to pools, hot tubs, or outdoor bathtubs. You are personally responsible for assuring the safety of children, non-swimmers, and minors.
Whenever you aren't using the private pool, swim spa or hot tub, close the cover to insure everybody's safety. In order to guarantee undisrupted and, above all, safe bathing experiences during your family holiday, please always comply with your hosts' bathing rules & guidelines.

Why ALPS RESORTS is a great choice for your family holiday!

Our holiday homes and holiday apartments with pool aren't the only good reasons for a family holiday at ALPS RESORTS in Austria:

  • Space: In a family home or family apartment, you have plenty of space to play, withdraw, and stow away the luggage of your whole family.
  • Privacy: Especially important after an active vacation day filled with new impressions!
  • Flexibility: Your daily schedule is based purely on your personal rhythms (above all those of your children), not on rigid, predetermined meal times and opening hours.
  • Self-catering: In the fully equipped kitchens of our holiday homes and holiday apartments, you are able to prepare the favorite dishes and snacks of your family. Regardless of what time of day those hunger pangs begin to nudge you!  
  • Cost savings: For stays involving multiple people or longer time periods, a holiday apartment or holiday home for your family holiday may well prove less expensive than a traditional hotel room.
