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

It's picturesque setting and circa 150 kms of groomed pistes are ideal for beginners to professionals. This is our 3rd holiday in the region, staying in Annaberg on two previous occasions and we will be back again. If you are considering taking a vacation in this area look no further than Skiblikhaus. A wonderful, luxurious chalet that more than catered for our every need. From a spacious kitchen, relaxing sitting room overlooking the mountains to the much needed sauna at the end of a days skiing. A 10 minute walk/2 minute drive to the gondola that opens up the mountains of the region. The picturesque little village of Russbach, whose skyline is dominated by the beautiful church, has all the required amenities for a wonderful holiday. We wish to thank you Steve for giving us the opportunity to rent your chalet and for all the advise and help on the run up to the trip, including providing a discount for ski-hire in Abtenau!!!!! We are also seriously considering booking the same dates with you next January, so keep us in mind. Yours Melvyn Kennedy, Clare Hughes and family.
