Holidays to Saint Anton

Situated at the western end of the Tirol in the Austrian Alps, the attractive resort of St Anton Is nestled in a narrow valley at the foot of the Arlberg pass. Its position means great skiing can be had on a holiday to St Anton particularly for intermediate or experienced skiers. The lively resort is suited to a younger crowd - groups of friends or couples after some action both on and off the slopes.
