St Anton is one of the oldest and finest resorts in the Alps, bursting with stylish hotels, restaurants and chalets.

Known for its impressive snow record, St Anton lies deep in the Arlberg region at the western end of Austria, one of Europe’s snowiest spots. Just two hours away from three international airports, the village is remarkably easy to get to. Intermediate and advanced skiers are in their element here thanks to the varied ski area and the extensive network of pistes (340km) and lifts (97).

The village has more than a few swanky chalets and hotels, but also caters well to more modest budgets. It is safe to say, however, that if you are looking for a hotel with the wow factor, you are sure to find something to fit the bill in St Anton.

After a day carving up the mountain, it’s worth checking out St Anton’s renowned après ski scene. Arguably the spiritual home of après ski, St Anton was put on the party map back in the 60s thanks to the two legendary bars either side of the Galzig piste: The MooserWirt and The Krazy Kanguruh.
