The kitchen was well equipped, with lots of fires to light if cold. Bedrooms all very comfortable but bring own bedding and towels! All bathrooms are downstairs but not a big problem, apart from creaky stairs in the night. Outside are fantastic views over the valley to rocky alpine mountains behind. We went summer skiing on the Dachstein glacier (an hour by car)and to the Hallstaten salt works - both trips were superb. The local village of Abtenau is 10 mins away with two good supermarkets. You can also arrange riding lessons just down the hill. Highly recommended and great value!

Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you

Abtenau is very well located for day trips to many of the best sights in Austria. From here we visited Grossglockner, Salzburg, Hallstatt, Eishöhle Dachstein, Lammerklamm and Golling waterfall. The apartments are situated in the bottom floor of the home and the owners live on the primary floor, where the very appealing pool and sauna are also located. The owners were very kind and helpful with all things. The apartments have everything we needed including a clothes washing machine, and the kitchen is well appointed. Everything was very clean. A grocery store is one block away. An excellent choice.
