Globetrotters with an appetite for something exquisitely scenic, decidedly dramatic, adventurous, romantic, and playful, tend to head to the snow-capped Austrian peaks. More specifically, the Alpine village of Kaprun in the Salzburger region, lying at the foot of the majestic Hohe Tauern Mountains is on the travel wishlist of many wanderlust travelers.
One can imagine the extreme mountainous landscape, fresh rivers meandering through the towns, lush greenery, wildflowers, sunshine, and snow – this special place captivates the hearts of many.
When it comes to where to stay in Kaprun, we’ve discovered a shining jewel in the village’s treasure chest: The Kaprun Edition. They offer a luxurious portfolio of rental villas and apartments in the town, with something for everyone in terms of style, size, experience, and cost.
It’s no surprise that they have just received, for the third year in a row, the award for Best Luxury Villa Rental & Accommodation Service in Austria, 2022, by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards. Here we take a look at what has caught the attention and approval of one of the world’s leading accolades.

A noteworthy attribute of this award-winning villa rental company is that they are dedicated to green operations. This means they strive to use only sustainable sources in operating their business. Evidence of this is that their accommodations are built from local wood and materials, they have engaged the use of solar-generated energy which powers their villas, and they do all their business transport in an E-Car.
In addition to this, they ensure their properties are abundant in fauna and flora, which in turn stimulates a healthy ecosystem in the local area. This deliberate focus is aligned with the owner Susanne Fischer to create a natural environment of being located in the beauty of the Alps, alongside a river, surrounded by sensational mountains.
