ChaletsPlus is YOUR chalet specialist in Austria

We are specialised in letting chalets & apartments in Austria. Since we mainly focus on particular regions and have been active in the business for more than 20 years, we are able to give you plenty of personal advice. As such, we are the Austria specialist!

A little bit of history

ChaletsPlus was founded by Ton and Yvonne Jansen in 1996. Using their knowledge and experience, they slowly and surely developed ChaletsPlus until it finally became what it is now. In 2011, Pim Jansen (Ton and Yvonne's son) took over ChaletsPlus. By now, ChaletsPlus has been a growing player for years, welcoming increasing numbers of new and existing guests to Austria every year. We recently received the Zoover Award for “Best Winter Sports Provider”.

Ultimate Austria experience?
Being the first person on the slopes after it has snowed, and enjoying making the first tracks!

In the summer, I like enjoying the tranquillity, the views and the sun in Austria. Fantastic walks and bike excursions, where you feel far from the 'real' world.

Ton Jansen

Founder

 

Bought an apartment in Königsleiten (Austria) in 1977, which eventually became the first holiday home to be rented when ChaletsPlus was founded in 1996. After handing over the reigns to his son Pim in 2011, Ton now primarily focuses on the business development activities at ChaletsPlus. In practice, this means Ton is responsible for expanding the portfolio.

Before becoming actively involved at ChaletsPlus, Ton spent many years as international marketing director at Italian company Olivetti. Besides working for ChaletsPlus, he, together with his wife, also owns the Kololo Game Reserve in South Africa.

What is your ultimate Austria experience?
The fantastic nature and the endless possibilities that Austria offers to enjoy a superb holiday.

Yvonne Jansen

Founder

 

After working 15 years as a stewardess for KLM and spending 8 years on the slopes as a skiing instructor, Yvonne decided to set up ChaletsPlus in 1996 together with her husband, Ton. She is currently responsible for reservations and contact with home owners.

Like many new businesses, ChaletsPlus also started as an idea on the kitchen table. Yvonne started by launching a small-scale website to rent the chalet they owned in Königsleiten. Under Yvonne's leadership, ChaletsPlus developed into a specialist in renting Austrian chalets & apartments in the years that followed.

What is your ultimate Austria experience?
Skiing in powder-packed snow and enjoying the Austrian Gemütlichkeit.
