Buying a chalet in Kitzbühel and living in a beautiful country home in Tyrol

The romantic country homes that you can buy in Kitzbühel and in the countryside surrounding this popular Austrian holiday resort are either made completely of wood or at least have an attractive wooden facade. The typical architectural style of these modern chalets is still the same as the original farmhouses. The wooden shutters on the windows, the spacious balcony as well as the relatively flat angled gable roof are representative of the original houses in this Alpine region. The modern Alpine style of the recently constructed chalets in Kitzbühel is captivating. The term ‘chalet’ comes from the French speaking part of Switzerland, where the former huts and shelters of cattle breeders were situated.  It is derived from the Latin word ‘cala’ and can be translated as ‘safe place’. The chalets, which you can buy in the region of Kitzbühel today, have only little in common with this simple architectural style. Nowadays, these charming country homes in Kitzbühel have large living spaces and cosy interiors as well as high-quality or even luxury furnishings. We offer you chalets with various high-quality furnishings, for example:

  • A completely furnished chalet, including bedding and a coffee machine
  • With complete service such as caretaking services, shopping service
  • In a completely secluded location amidst the majestical mountains
  • Modern furnishings, smart home, home cinema and multimedia
  • With a stunning spa area​

Buying a modern chalet in a picturesque location in Kitzbühel

Average purchase prices start at 5 million Euros for buying a nice chalet in Kitzbühel. However, the luxurious Tyrolean chalets are collector’s items, as there is high demand for them in Kitzbühel.
