Lodge Danube / St. Anton
Luxury Ski Lodge Sleeps 6+2
Contemporary design combined with authentic Alpine character to create one of St Anton's best chalets. Danube is located in the peaceful Stadle area of St Anton, Lodge Danube is a luxury winter holiday home with four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Lodge Danube is one of the four Arlberg Lodges which were created when an old sawmill was converted in 2006. The long building was divided into four chalets, Adler, Danube, Christoph and Danube, to create some of the finest chalet accommodation in St Anton.
While Lodge Danube sleeps 6 in great comfort and privacy, the layout of the building lends itself well to larger groups wanting to take more than one lodge – they accommodate up to 36 in en-suite accommodation and the shared balcony has an exterior fireplace where gluhwein and canapés can be served to larger groups.
All four lodges are similar in style, characterised by deep rich colours and a contemporary style, but maintaining a traditional chalet feeling in the wooden beams and floors. The large en-suite bedrooms (25-35 m2) are on the ground and lower ground floors. Every bedroom is equipped with wide Austrian twin/double beds on polished wooden floors, a flat screen TV and DVD player. The bathrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with modern Italian tiles. The baths and walk-in showers are huge, and the Zucchetti fittings lend a highly contemporary touch.
Upstairs, the very comfortable open plan living space has vaulted ceilings, deep sofas and a blazing log fire to create a real chalet or log cabin atmosphere. The flat screen TV can be used to watch a film, UK satellite TV, the footage from the day's skiing or to play on the Xbox 360. There is also an iPad for our guests' use.
Please note, the industrial kitchen (staff only) is shared with Lodge Christoph and is locked at night and during the day when staff are not present. However, there is a fully stocked drinks fridge, 2 ring hob and tea and coffee making facilities for guests to use at any time.
The fabulous Wellness area is also on the top floor. The sauna is ideal for relaxing aching muscles and, out on the roof, the outdoor hot tub allows you to relax and look up at the stars in complete privacy.
