Full review

Got a unexpected chance to take a week off work, so it was a frantic search on the net for a holiday, kidnapped my seven year old niece and off we flew to a location I knew little about. Kerchdorf is a well kept little village with 3 Spar shops that shut from 12.30 to two each day and are not open Sundays. A couple of restaurants which we did not sample as we were staying in a hotel on a full board bases, a bakery and a perfumery, a hardware store and a very expensive shoe shop. There are claims that the place has a swimming pool but it hasn't , it has a sauna that we visited a couple of times, being nude is compulsory. the pool is quite small, it is more of a relaxation area. Also saw a disco but being with a seven year old I did not visit it The larger of the two slopes was shut. The open lift was a very timid beginners slope. It was virtually deserted used by a few children whose ages ranged from two to four. It was OK for the first two hours as you get used to your skis again, but after a short while we caught the free bus to nearby St. Johann. The morning and last bus was quite crowded and for the last four days hired a car - paid for a Fiesta got an Audi A3 I think it is a wonderful little village, for a quiet or romantic weekend away, For a skiing holiday I rather be somewhere like St. Johann or Fieberbrunn
