MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Mark Warner's new Mountain Lake Resort in Zell am See in Austria has glorious views from its 34 one to four bedroom apartments. It's close to the Schmittenhöhe ski area, which has slopes that are perfect for beginners and families, and a vast fun park. There's also a sauna, steam room and a kids' club. The neighbouring resort of Kaprun gives you access to the vast snowfields of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier.

FIT FOR FAMILIES

The apartments at the new resort, ready for winter 2014/2015, include scrumptious heated flooring, state-of-the-art kitchen and appliances and beds that can be set up as twins or doubles. The resort is close to the ski lifts as well as the charming resort centre, which is handy for tired for little legs.

Price: Seven nights cost from £2,788 for a family of four, including British Airways flights, transfers, breakfast, afternoon tea and evening meals.

Book early for lift passes and ski lessons to complete your holiday. Don't forget to hire your skis in advance with the resort's ski hire service.
