Alpenhorn – Self Catered Holiday Apartments – General Information
Alpenhorn is a two storey, chalet style accommodation complex situated in Tawonga South on the edge of Mount Beauty.
Alpenhorn has 7 self contained apartments. Six apartments are two bedroom/two storey with bedrooms & bathroom downstairs. The kitchen, lounge, dining areas are upstairs with a private balcony off the lounge area. Our one bedroom apartment is ground floor only. The apartments do not share a common wall as they are separated by a 0.75m “breezeway”. This European concept enhances sound proofing, heating/cooling and the provision of services to the units. The second floor balcony can remain private or, by opening the privacy barriers, adjoining apartments can share an extended balcony area.
Alpenhorn has some pleasant gardens and a swimming pool for the summer months. Guests can also enjoy spectacular views across the Kiewa Valley to Victoria’s highest mountain – Mt Bogong.
When staying at Alpenhorn, you will find a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge and dining area with flat screen TV, iPod doc and DVD player. The two bedrooms can sleep up to 6 people with a double bed in one bedroom and a double bed and single bunks in the second bedroom. All bedding, linen and towels are included. Free WiFi is offered as well as Foxtel. There is a communal BBQ area and garden for relaxing and socialising in. There are two bicycles available for free to those who didn’t bring their own, and your host, Nick, is a keen cyclist with an extensive knowledge of the local trails and cycling routes.
Mount Beauty and the surrounding Kiewa Valley is a beautiful area hosting a wide range of activities including cycling, mountain biking, river swimming, golf, tennis, gliding, paragliding, model plane flying, canoeing, skiing, mountain hiking, and bush walking. There is an excellent playground, BMX track and skate board park and the locals are very active with many activities put on by the local community. The area is also known for its vineyards and locally grown fruit and vegetables.
