This small chalet village at nearly 5,000ft above sea level, high above the village Schröcken am Arlberg, was built according to ancient tradition with lots of wood and natural stone.

The result is seven exclusive chalets for private use, with two or three bedrooms for up to a maximum of eight people. Each chalet invites guests with its own sauna, hot-pot and a wonderfully comfortable living room for an unforgettable holiday.

When entering, it smells of wood and from the living room you can hear the crackling fire — there’s a glass-fronted fireplace in the large living room, which creates a cosy atmosphere in every season.

In winter, the Arlberg is known as a skiing paradise, while in summer the meadows turn green. The Aadla Chalets are in Skiarlberg, the largest skiing area in Austria (one of the largest in the world, with some of the highest rates of snowfall). The location right on the valley run makes the chalets very popular, since guests can ski almost to their chalet door.

In the chalet village Aadla, travellers from all over the world experience alpine holiday happiness. And to make the stay perfect, the hosts can organise airport shuttles, ski pass and heliskiing in advance. The special Aadla holiday services include housekeeping, daily breakfast delivery and much more. There are also personal guides on hand to ensure guests have a great stay by taking them hiking, giving them skiing lessons or booking a day out freeriding.

The Aadla chalets await families and friends or couples who like to have a chalet to themselves. There’s also a private terrace with sauna, and plenty to keep children entertained in an alpine meadow playground such as a huge swing and trampoline.

In summer, the free Bregenzerwald guest card (from May to October) lures guests to a mountain experience: the cable-cars take families up to hiking spots and return them to the valley after.

Attractions such as suspension bridges and adventure parks with zip-lines and canyoning, are waiting to be discovered in this beautiful region of Austria.
