Schooren des Alpes

Schooren des Alpes is a 21st-century take on the Tyrolean ski lodge - a bold departure from the traditional ski chalets. Nestled into the pristine Tyrolean paradise Kappl, 4 kilometres from Ischgl, Schooren des Alpes is uncompromisingly modern, but its architecture complements the magnificent scenery spectacularly. Only 12 sleek and ultra-modern mountain homes are available for sale - this is limited edition Alpine living at its best.

The serene setting also provides a stunning backdrop for the 330m² Wellness Spa with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Hammam, sauna and pool lounge facilities. Underground parking, ski/snowboard storage and additional private storage areas for wine or fine art collections ensure Schooren des Alpes will remain the benchmark for luxury lifestyle ski properties for years to come.

The residences will be synonymous with luxury and fine living, offering stylish living spaces ranging from 135 to 261m². Each residence will be completely unique and bespoke for each buyer.

Schooren des Alpes is so beautifully functional and quietly inspiring that it's hard to believe its close proximity to Ischgl, rated Europe’s best holiday resort playground, and the overabundance of year round indoor and outdoor activities the region offers.

Ischgl is just 80 minutes from Innsbruck, at altitude of 1,400m. With 235km of slopes and more than 40 top modern lifts, the resort is one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. With 90% of the skiing between 2,000m and 2,872m, this snow-sure resort has guaranteed skiing from the end of November to the beginning of May. The Kappl lift will be connected to St. Anton by winter 2011, creating one of the world's most amazing ski areas, directly accessible from Schooren des Alpes

This is a rare opportunity to buy a luxury ski residence in the Tyrol.

Schooren des Alpes is mixing contemporary architecture, frosted Alpine peaks and luxury amenities with altitude.
