Be close to all the action of St Anton yet away from all the noise. The Chalet Fauner is a five minute walk up the hill from the main Galzig ski lift where the après kicks off at Basecamp. 400 metres up the hill from town you'll find the chalet in a peaceful setting, overlooking the wooded slopes of Rendl. The Chalet Fauner features eight spacious bedrooms with more than ample wardrobe space. In addition to this, you'll find a large open plan dining and living area with great views and, if you really want to blow off some steam, try the downstairs sauna with the power showers and little relaxation area.

The chalet experience is the same as our other chalets, where flexiski staff will look after you from the moment you book 'til it's time to wave goodbye. You'll be tucking into breakfasts with a hot option each morning and rushing back to the chalet for afternoon cakes and cuppas. Pre-dinner fizz will come out with canapés for a little treat before your three-course evening meal followed by a cheese board to wash it down with. It's all prepared in house by our chef who's happy to cater for any and all your dietary needs (just let us know in advance).

What we like

  • 5 minute walk to the slopes/town
  • Quiet location, no rowdy revellers waking you up on their late night journey home
  • Views of the wooded Rendl ski area from the chalet
  • Spacious rooms and a sauna

Worth knowing

  • If you're not feeling the walk up to the chalet you can hop on the bus it stops just up the road from the Fauner (though the circular bus route will take longer than the walk). Alternatively, you can leave your skis and boots at Jennewein ski shop at the lift base if you don't fancy carrying them (small charge to rent storage with them)
  • There's a shared ski and boot room with the chalet above (8 person)
  • The chalet occupies the 2 lower floors of the building (there is another chalet above) but you won't hear a peep from them
  • The chalet is shoe free, we will give you some slippers but if you want to bring your own, feel free
  • This chalet was previously known as Chalet Fauner A under Ski Val (this is the TripAdvisor page) but has been newly refurbished for 2019/20

What others have said

Poor food and facilities St. Andrews, United Kingdom We first stayed in this chalet in 2011 and it was one of the best. The food was particularly good and we went to some trouble to seek it out and visit again. We were told it had been refurbished and... Rated 1 on TripAdvisor
ski val masterclass London Just returned from a great week ski in St Anton with my girlfriend. The chalet is a 5 minute uphill walk from the village. So a great location. The chalet is spacious and our room had a great view... Rated 5 on TripAdvisor
Great chalet & excellent chalet hosts London, United Kingdom I booked a family trip over Christmas week with my husband & one grown up daughter. Flights with Norwegian Air were very civilised as they were not early morning flights. We were met by Ski Val reps... Rated 5 on TripAdvisor

A five minute walk up the hill from the main Galzig lift station and town centre. There's also a bus that runs from the town if you don't fancy walking up the hill back to the chalet (though the bus does take longer than the walk as it's a circular route). You could also leave your skis and boots at the rental shop by the ski lift for a small fee (it's worth the easy convenience we'd say).

Board basis

As with all our catered chalets, you’ll enjoy a continental-style buffet breakfast with an optional hot dish, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks and canapés as well as a four-course evening meal with wine.

One night each week, there is a chalet staff night off where your evening meal is not included. On this day, breakfast and afternoon tea are served as normal and our flexiski hosts will be happy to make dinner reservations at a local restaurant for you.

Take a look at our chalet experience page to find out more about your stay at the Chalet Fauner.

Flexible durations

Chalet Fauner is an ideal option for couples, families and groups, as well as company trips looking for a quieter chalet.  It can be booked for flexible durations throughout the season including New Year and half term, whether room by room or on a sole occupancy basis. It‘s a great chalet option for a short break or ski weekend to St Anton.

If you want to ensure you've got the chalet to yourself - let us know and we can provide you with the cost for sole use, otherwise experience the fun of sharing stories over breakfast and dinner with other like-minded guests.


Please note this is not to scale and whilst we will try to accommodate requests for exact rooms, this is not always possible.
